Dominica rallies after the storm

To help the island recover from a dip in business following tropical storm Erika, Dominica is promoting a series of special offers valid until December 31. “Discover Dominica Authority is increasing promotion to indicate that we are open for business,” said Colin Piper, director of tourism. “Given the temporary reduction in airlift and pricing challenges for air access, the focus of the “Stay 3 [nights], Pay 2” promotion will be to attract visitors from Guadeloupe and Martinique via ferry.”

Paradise in Nevis

A seven-villa hideaway on Nevis’ west coast has been contracted by a number of operators including Elegant Resorts, Cox & Kings and Caribtours. The Balinese-inspired thatched beachfront villas have two, three and four bedrooms and a plunge pool. There’s a beach bar for the social crowd, and the services of a private chef when only dinner for two will do.
