Caribbean Hotelier of the Year: Gregor Nassief, Secret Bay, Dominica
We like to say that small hotels are an art form; they are the ultimate expressions of their owners’ personalities and sensibilities, their hospitality philosophies. And when you come to Dominica’s Secret Bay, you know you are at the home of an artist. Owner Gregor Nassief has taken a family passion project and turned it into a leading light for Dominica’s hospitality sector, a now world-renowned hotel and, most impressively, a growing footprint thanks to a residential-resort expansion. A native of Dominica, Nassief’s work represents the best of Caribbean hospitality — and a model for what a small hotel can be.
