Property Description

Both at and beyond Secret Bay await a host of perspective-shifting, life-altering experiences. Whether you choose to journey “within” alongside our seasoned healers, explore the living, breathing rainforest, or rappel into the depths of the island on a waterfall canyoning adventure, guests are guaranteed to leave Dominica forever changed.

ACCOMMODATION

Secret Bay’s award-winning villas are renowned for their artful fusion of high design and local craftsmanship, forming open-air luxury residences enveloped in nature’s lush embrace. Composed entirely of sustainably sourced tropical hardwoods, the freestanding retreats feature expansive indoor and outdoor living spaces — inclusive of private plunge pools, contemporary gourmet kitchens, covered terraces, and breathtaking ocean views — offering a tranquil, secluded sanctuary to reconnect with nature, one another, and oneself.

Zabuco Honeymoon Villa I – Secret Bay’s original Zabuco Villa is where the beautiful dream of Secret Bay began. The view from Zabuco I is truly panoramic from all sides of the cliffs out to the sea, best enjoyed from the outdoor deck or plunge pool. Guests also have exclusive use of the enchanting Wild Orchid Garden Decks.

Zabuco Honeymoon Villas II & III  – Zabuco Villas II & III offer breathtaking 180-degree views over the mountain peaks of Dominica and the sparkling Caribbean Sea. These villas are perfect for all romantic occasions—including honeymoons, private beach weddings, anniversaries or simply rekindling your love and reconnecting with one another.

Ti-Fèy Villa I  – Exotic and private, Secret Bay’s Ti-Fèy Villa I is a fashionable treehouse boasting floor-to-ceiling glass walls and a two-story design, with a private plunge pool, outdoor rain shower cantilevered off the second floor, extra bathroom, gourmet kitchen, and every modern amenity imaginable to complete your idyllic under-the-radar romantic hideaway.

Ylang Ylang Villas I & II  – Rising up from the ground from a single stem, the Ylang Ylang Villas present a stunning architectural creation. The nearly 1,600-square-foot villas feature one bed and bath, two decks, an elevated pool directly accessible from the bedroom, a barbecue, and a hammock sofa—the ideal setting for an unforgettable retreat.

Hillside Ti-Fèy Villas I-IV  – Gracefully perched upon the island’s lush hillsides, Secret Bay’s new Hillside Villas offer spectacular jungle-to-ocean views that extend to the Nature Island’s tallest mountain, Morne Diablotin. Situated in the densest area of Dominica’s rainforest, these villas provide an other-worldly experience entirely immersed in nature and the utmost luxury.

 

DINING

Part of the luxury of staying at Secret Bay is the fresh, sustainable cuisine you’ll encounter during your stay, satisfying the mind and body in one dream holiday. Whether you choose to dine in-villa or at our open-air restaurant, each meal is ethically prepared by our executive chef who reimagines fresh, vibrant ingredients that are foraged right here on the property or sourced from nearby fishers and farmers markets. It is this innovative, hyperlocal culinary concept that allows for a more intimate and traceable connection between guests and land, earning Secret Bay its reputation as a leader in sustainable food tourism.

Zing Zing Restaurant  – Secret Bay’s open-air Zing Zing Restaurant offers locally sourced fare set to jaw-dropping views of Tibay Beach, setting a romantic scene with a canopy-style roof, display kitchen, and private dining room. The restaurant is open daily for lunch from 12-3:00 pm, featuring inspired island-to-table plates off our Island Harvest menu, and nightly for dinner from 6-10:00 pm, with four set courses following our executive chef’s innovative “no menu” concept, which allows for more experiential dining. Simply secure your table with your villa host for an intimate dining experience to write home about.

In-Villa, Deck, or Beach Dining  – Whether you wish to dine in the comfort of your own villa, fancy an intimate set up for two on one of our quiet decks overlooking the Caribbean Sea, or crave a full day well spent in the sand, your dedicated villa host will take care of all dining details — from setting the table and mixing cocktails to paddling a packed picnic lunch directly to you at Secret Beach. All-day eats are selected à la carte off our Island Harvest menu, featuring sea- and farm-to-table plates inspired by the island’s bounty.

 

Gommier Spa

The Gommier Spa is among Secret Bay’s most coveted destinations. In this treehouse-style serene space overlooking Tibay Beach, guests can indulge in an array of solo and couple treatments curated by our expert therapists, including relaxation, deep tissue, hot stone, and four-hand massages with locally custom-blended oils, as well as our signature Gommier facial. Whether you wish to relax tense muscles after hiking, unravel the effects of everyday stressors brought from home, or find your inner peace, our therapists will cater to each service to your needs.
