There is a well stocked library, the bar is always open and there is free wifi available in the lounge. However, we do not offer the usual, standard facilities such as cable TV, room service (or the dreaded mini-bar!).
Beau Rive is situated 240 feet above sea level on the East (Atlantic) coast between the villages of Castle Bruce and Sineku. The hotel is nestled into a hillside amid three acres of tropical gardens and forest, with a dramatic view of the ever-crashing waves at Anse Francais and Wakaman Point. The setting is secluded and private.
One can walk down though the forest and along the Richmond River to the beach, which is wild and rocky. The sea is too rough for bathing but there is a natural rock pool nearby where it is possible to swim when conditions allow. There is a black sand beach at the village of Castle Bruce one and a half miles to the south.
Although Dominica is only 29 miles long by 16 miles wide, due to the mountainous terrain road distances can be deceptive and it is certainly not an island which can be seen in a day. Being centrally located on Dominica’s east coast, Beau Rive is a convenient start-point for exploring the country.
When dining at Beau Rive you will experience good, home cooking rather than ‘restaurant food’. The only meat served will be chicken but we also serve fish and much of the menu will feature vegetarian dishes. A continental style buffet breakfast is included in the room rate and served between 7.30 and 9 am on the terrace. This will include fresh fruit, juice, home-made bread, preserves, yoghurt, fresh coffee and fine teas.
