Secret Bay, a jewel of a resort, hidden on the shores of the beautiful little island of Dominica was where my husband and I just celebrated our anniversary. Staying In our own luxurious villa with private decks, reading by our own private pool, watching the sunset each evening on the spacious balcony, all the while anticipating the delicious meals that...

What a special place! We had been looking for a special place to celebrate a special anniversary and we certainly found it. Dominica itself is wonderful. From the air, it looks like Jurassic Park. From the ground, it is lush and beautiful and unspoiled. The people are friendly and we never felt  anything other than safe and welcome.  We visited... More

My family stayed for 5 nights in the Zing Zing Villa this past October and we had an amazing time! The staff was professional, friendly and invested in making our time special. We did not have a set itinerary planned when we arrived, but Secret Bay helped us create a schedule of activities and arranged everything for us. I liked... More

I was in Dominica working with the Portsmouth Rotary Club and the expansion and renovation of their hospital's emergency department. My brother and I were only able to be at Secret Bay for two nights, but it was the greatest island experience imaginable. Life in the Zing Zing was like being Tarzan in the jungle, except that Mr T. did... More

I have lived in Dominica for over two years and have tried quite a few famous hotels and resorts on the island. And the Secret Bay is absolutely the best. I stayed there last year and when I returned this year I noticed that they had made some improvement and made our stay even more comfortable. I think it is... More

When we booked Secret Bay, all that was available was the Ti-Fey bungalow. Just being two of us we decided that this was sufficient for our stay. We were not disappointed. The area is beautiful and very well maintained. The buildings at secret bay are beautifully constructed. The bungalow contained plenty of room for the two of us and had... More

Secret Bay and staff exceeded our expectations in every way. When we arrived we were greeted with a cold cloth to cool our face and some dried fruit to snack on the 1 hour drive. From that point forward we were pampered by the Secret Bay staff. They did everything from carrying our bags, planning our excursions, stocking our fridge,... More

We spent a week with our 2 kids in Zhing-Zhing Villa during August. From the moment we arrived till we left the staff at Secret Bay made us feel like home. There was nothing they couldn't organise or cater to, always available and accommodating. The villa was out of this world - from German appliances and Brazilian hard wood to... More

My wife and I looked to get "off the grid". We couldn't have found a better spot than Secret Bay. If you look to party in the Carribean, don't come here! What we experienced: - beautiful house (Zabucco 1) with private pool, large outdoor space, air conditioned bedroom, large tub - amazing food cooked for is every night, ate on... More
