Luxury Holidays At Secret Bay

Artfully combining sustainability and natural splendour with truly luxurious living, Secret Bay is perfectly positioned on the coastline where lush rainforest meets the azure Caribbean Sea. The award-winning Dominica luxury hotel resort offers just ten freestanding villas nestled into the hillside, each one flaunting a private plunge pool, gourmet kitchen and dedicated villa host. Dining at the Zing Zing Restaurant embraces the natural bounty of Dominica, while a world of wellness awaits at the treetop Gommier Spa. A stay at Secret Bay invites you to discover the dream-like natural beauty of Dominica, offering an array of eye-opening experiences both around the resort and nearby – from snorkelling over coral reefs and spotting birds as you stroll along nature trails, to horse-riding across the hills and bathing in one of the island’s natural hot springs. Secret Bay is also committed to protecting the precious and pristine island of Dominica, with various measures in place to do so – including a responsible design, zero waste policy, and onsite farms and gardens for produce. In terms of social sustainability, the resort prioritises employing people from neighbouring communities, sourcing local produce and supporting local artisans and businesses.
