Interval International has added Jungle Bay Resort & Spa on Dominica in the West Indies to its exchange network. The mixed-use property was built in accordance with the international sustainable tourism guidelines set by The International Ecotourism Society (TIES).
The resort’s 35 treehouse-style cabins are tucked away on a hillside on 55 acres near Morne Trois Pitons National Park, one of the 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Caribbean.
The tropical hardwood cottages feature “eco-chic” design in an open floor plan and are accessed via a series of footpaths and stone staircases. They are furnished with handcrafted pieces made from locally sourced materials. All have comfortable sitting areas, solar-heated outdoor showers adjacent to the en-suite bathrooms, and spacious balconies. Ceiling fans enhance the natural air flow provided by coastal breezes.
The resort’s on-site amenities include a sundeck and bar on the private beach, a swimming pool that offers panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and is finished with volcanic stone, and the cliff-top Spa Du Soleil. A visitor centre houses two yoga studios and an activity room. The Pavilion Restaurant serves mostly Caribbean cuisine prepared with locally sourced ingredients.
