A passion fruit vine was cut this past weekend Dominica president Charles Savarin, Clara Savarin and local school children to mark the opening of Jungle Bay, Dominica’s new property.
The symbolism of passion fruit vine instead of a traditional ribbon cutting speaks to the unique and nature-based values of Jungle Bay as an ecologically friendly vacation property.
Jungle Bay has been sustainably developed and currently features 30 villas, a restaurant, an infinity swimming pool, a whirlpool, 14 Spa studio treatment rooms, and a recreation room with gym. Notably, Jungle Bay’s two yoga studios, spanning 2,500 square feet each, make this the largest yoga centre in the Caribbean.
Also contributing to the natural beauty of Jungle Bay are fragrant banana, papaya and pineapple plants, as well as 40 other varieties of fruits and trees throughout the property. A newly introduced guest program will allow guests to further contribute to the beauty and the sustainability of the resort through a tree sponsorship initiative.
Guests are invited to relax in comfort in the Jungle Bay villa décor, inspired by nature, from enjoying the indoor raindrop shower to the artisan-themed rooms with hand-painted bedding sheets showcasing the local sea turtle, sisserou parrot (Dominica’s national bird) or heliconia flower.
Every villa at Jungle Bay has views overlooking the connection of the Caribbean Sea to the Atlantic, and the highly biodiverse Soufriere Scotts Head Marine Reserve, home to world-class snorkeling and scuba diving. Other nearby attractions include natural sulphur hot springs, waterfalls, hiking trails and cultural heritage attractions such as the nearby villages using traditional fishing methods.
