Bayahibe Village Inn is an innovative and sustainable concept of hospitality called "Albergo Diffuso" or dispersed hotel. The Albergo Diffuso is a hotel accommodation company located in a village, made up of several houses, rooms and apartments within close but spacious proximity, with unitary management and we are able to provide hotel services to all guests.
Bayahibe Village Inn offers accomodations in different areas but all of them are less than 150 meters faraway from each other and from the main lobby, which provides many services to the guests and offers an authentic and amazing Caribbean experience, enhancing the territory and supporting local business.
CONCETP AND PHILOSOPHY
"The concept of "Albergo diffuso" was launched in Italy in the early 1980s with the meaning of reviving a small and historic village which was destroyed by an earthquake; in the Caribbean was launched to enhance, promote and support Bayahibe, a small and beautiful village, that risks being destroyed by mass tourism and by the strategies of large resorts.
In this country, 80% of visitors end up in large resorts that have defaced nature, privatised beaches and offer very low salaries to workers. With an information terrorism policy they scare tourists to prevent them from leaving the walls of their all-inclusive resort with the solo purpose of maximising their profits.
These are the reasons why we decide to adopt the "albergo diffuso" model for Bayahibe and we lunched Bayahibe Village: a unitary management of multiple housing units such as apartments, B&B rooms or small hotels, two beaches and many services for the guests in order to offer an authentic and amazing Caribbean experience and also to promote an entire village, its culture and traditions and to support all local businesses.
This is the goal and the essence of Bayahibe Village.
We are only at the beginning and many travelers from all over the world are appreciating our offer. There is still a lot of work to do and we hope to reach the second phase of the project soon: reinvest 30% of the company's profits in humanity projects.
Let's not forget that in this country there are many people living without water, without electricity and who work on sugar cane plantations for a few dollars per day.
If you go on vacation to a resort and just enjoy a couple of excursions, you cannot go back to your country and say that you have visited Dominican Republic; the resorts are the same all over the world, they are beautiful, luxurious but disfigure the territory and exploit the local populations.
We therefore invite you to choose a sustainable holiday, as a true traveler without giving up on comfort, enjoyment or relaxation."
