Roots Jungle Retreat is simply a paradise to reconnect with your inner self. It’s a place to be happy, to wake up smiling and go to bed with an even greater smile. It’s a place for nature lovers. A place you realize you don’t need much to be really happy. Getting to Dominica itself it’s an adventure. Flying there is... More

We stayed only one night in our jungle roots tree house, but Loreta and Olaf ensured that we were treated like old friends. You really need a 4x4 to travel the track which slowly brings you to Jungle Roots. The food was excellent and sourced from the local Carib tribe. Our cottage was entirely eco friendly and comfortable, with a... More

Olaf and Lorena were perfect hosts during our week stay in the middle of the rain forest. You are 15 mins drive off the road up a great track (watch out for the yellow land crabs) so it's a get away from it all holiday although our hosts were happy to guide/drive us around the island as well as cook...

There are plenty of positive reviews on here and most I skimmed fairly accurately describe the location, road access, and accommodations so not really worth overly repeating. As others have said, the lodging is not top of the line, completely private, and everything perfect...but it is as advertised, rustic and comfortable with conveniences such as hot water/electric/on site restaurant. Some... More

After visiting St Lucia we decided to fly to Dominica and to stay at Roots for 4 nights. Our start has been worse - heavy rain, a 4WD car, manufactured approx. 1850 (we changed it after one day), and last but not least a 3 km (15 - 20 minutes length) way on something called dirt track, which is not...

This place is beautiful. We went for our honeymoon and had an absolutely amazing time. Ollie and Lorena, the two who manage the property, are accommodating, friendly, and really good cooks. We ate breakfast with them everyday, and dinner most nights. The few times we ventured out, we wished we could have been back at Roots with Ollie and Lorena's... More

What a perfect hideway within the forest of Waitukubuli. We enjoyed the peaceful and basic place. There is a very rustic 'road' leading through the bush - approx. 15 Min. drive (you need a 4-W-D) and you will reach Roots. No cars, no traffic, no electricity at night, no computers but nature pur! At night you can hear the concert... More

My family and I just came back from Roots Jungle Retreat. We had a blast! From hiking on the property trails to swimming in the natural river pool, it was all exhilarating. The managers, Olaf and Lorena, went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and at home. We can now say we have some friends in Dominica.... More

My husband and I spent 8 nights at this beautiful place and enjoyed every minute of it. Yes, the driving from the main road is a little bit too tough but I guess that's the price of being secluded in a forest which by the way you start admiring right from the beginning. This is not a place for everyone... More

Ok, so the drive in shakes your bones. The cabins don't have windows. Birds fly in and eat your food. The place is run off a car battery, and you your water comes out of the River behind the cabins. At night, the noise from the waterfall is only eclipsed by the noise from the animals, and if it rains,... More
