For this year’s summer vacation, travel off the beaten path and save big on an unforgettable experience at Rosalie Bay Resort on the Caribbean’s Nature Island of Dominica.
For travel during peak sea turtle nesting season, now through September 15, 2013, we will save 40% on stays of two nights or more at the wind- and solar-powered eco-boutique resort. Under the moon- and star-lit sky, we have a chance to witness an amazing sight of giant sea turtles crawling ashore to nest or hatchlings smaller than a baby’s footprint head out to sea.
Three types of endangered sea turtles, the Green, Hawksbill and giant Leatherback, travel thousands of miles each year to nest on the protected black sand beach of Rosalie Bay Resort. We may participate in the resort’s sea turtle conservation program by helping patrol the beach to protect nesting turtles, aiding researchers in collecting data or relocating nests that are too close to the ocean to the turtle hatchery, and being “on call” for when baby sea turtles emerge from their nest.
With the discount, daily rates begin at $150 per couple plus tax and service charge. Daily rates include healthful continental breakfast, free Wi-Fi, yoga classes and guided nature hikes near the eco-resort. Stays of five nights or more also include complimentary roundtrip airport transfers.
This special offer is available in all categories of the resort’s spacious cottage-style accommodations featuring hand-carved hardwood four-poster beds, spa bathrooms with walk-in rain showers and private balconies or patios with views of the gardens, Atlantic Ocean or tranquil Rosalie River.
In addition to seeing the sea turtles, we also enjoy local and organic cuisine, oceanfront spa, onyx-lined natural saltwater pool and endless adventure on Dominica from hiking rainforests to swimming in natural pools underneath waterfalls, scuba diving with whales and much more.
To take advantage of the 40% savings, travel must be booked by July 31, 2013. For reservations, call toll-free to (877) 732-2864 or visit online for more information.
