My husband and I do not have enough great things to say about Secret Bay. Not only is the scenery astonishingly beautiful, our villa was incredibly comfortable and the staff made us feel right at home. We didn't want to leave! We stayed in one of the villas, which was so nice, with the private pool onlooking the ocean, that... More

From the moment Gilbert picked us up at the airport in Dominica, we knew we had chosen the right place! The island is absolutely a nature lover's paradise, and Secret Bay has managed to create it's own perfect domain! We could not reserve a villa due to our late booking, but our little bungalow was definitely worth it for us.... More

We spent a week at secret bay for our honeymoon in april. To say our experience was amazing, doesn't even do it justice. Our villa and the grounds were beautiful and well maintained. The staff was very attentive and catered to our every want and need, from arranging the perfect meals to planing fun excursions, to organizing yoga classes and... More

I think the magnificence of Zing Zing Villa at Secret Bay is succinctly captured by the comment that my handsome, party loving 20 year old nephew, who is heading to University in the fall, made to me during our family stay there over the Mother’s Day weekend. “ You know Aunty Andy, this place makes me want to get married...

I’ve just returned from a two-night stay at Zing Zing Villa, a mother-daughter getaway for Mother’s Day. As one tends to do, I visited the Secret Bay website - watched the promotional videos, read the reviews; however, when we entered the Villa it still took my breath away. Wow, wow, wow. First and foremost Zing Zing is a romantic refuge... More

My wife and I were born and have lived in the Caribbean all our lives. We had visited nearly all the islands in the Caribbean, but never Dominica. The island was an undiscovered gem, and Secret Bay was the icing on the cake. We stayed in Zabuco III and even though we had our grown-up children in the villa next... More

We were so very fortunate to be able to live in Zabuco 1 for two weeks!! The attention to detail in our home at Secret Bay was like nothing I had ever seen in a hotel. There was a lot of love put into creating such a beautiful space. At Zabuco 1 you are positioned on a cliff basically over... More

Secret Bay is difficult to get to: 3 1/2 hour flight to San Juan, from JFK, then 1 1/4 hour twin engine turbo prop flight to Dominica, then over an hour car drive to Secret Bay. The accommodations are one of the best we have found in the Caribbean. Unlike other islands, the staff at Secret Bay are all very... More

Dear Patrick L, Thanks for writing a review and giving your feedback. We agree Dominica is more difficult to get to than some islands, but hope you agree that it is more than worth it. We are not a mass tourism destination, and all of our guests arrive through a hub (either San Juan or St. Maarten or other islands).... More

When we chose to escape the daily routine of our city life, on a wedding elopement to a private paradise where the sole focus would be the company of each other, the challenge we faced was how? And where? For any like-minded couples, trust us when we say that Secret Bay has become THE memory closest and dearest to our... More

This spring, my husband got a new job and had one week off during transitioning. We knew we wanted to go somewhere tropical and we had to act fast because we only had two weeks to plan the trip. Thankfully, we found Secret Bay and it was exactly what we were looking for. Secret Bay was magical and the coolest... More
