Dominica Resort Receives Development of the Year Award
The host of the Caribbean Hotel & Resort Investment Summit (CHRIS) announced Secret Bay the winner of the prestigious Development of the Year Award at the Caribbean Hotel & Resort Investment Summit (CHRIS) conference, on Tuesday, May 8, 2012, at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami hotel in Miami, Florida, USA. CHRIS is hosted by Burba Hotel Network (BHN).
The announcement stated the following: “In the category of Development of the Year 2011, the winner is Secret Bay Dominica. Opened in June 2011, the intimate Secret Bay Hotel is located in the island of Dominica, on the Eastern Caribbean. The property features four villas and bungalows atop wooden superstructures, perched like tree houses on a cliff. Nominees in the Development of the Year 2011 category also included Buccament Bay Resort in St. Vincent & the Grenadines and Fishing Lodge Cap Cana in Punta Cana, Dominica Republic. Rogerio Basso chaired the Development of the Year Award committee that was comprised of hotel industry leaders who selected, reviewed, and nominated deals. The finalist information was sent to the CHRIS delegates for voting.”
CHRIS is the Caribbean’s most important hotel and tourism investment conference. The Caribbean region is showing signs of recovery, and there may be no better time to focus on the investment opportunities. CHRIS immediately precedes a second important event, the Hotel Opportunities Latin America (HOLA) conference. The back-to-back nature of the two events is an efficient way for the hotel investment community that is interested not only in the Caribbean, but also in the Latin America region, to conduct their business while in Miami.

About Secret Bay:
Situated on a cliff-top promontory overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Secret Bay is unique in its diversity: two secluded swimming beaches, a spectacular sea-cave; the magical Cario River and two distinct micro-climates. The secluded villas and bungalows for purchase or rent were conceptualized by award-winning Latin American architect Fruto Vivas, to maximise the natural beauty of Secret Bay and to minimise the impact on this pristine environment.
