My husband and I had the honeymoon of our dreams. We come from Barbados but had never been to Dominica before. We adore being surrounded by nature and all its beauty and Secret Bay was the most intimate nature experience we have had to date. It was the perfect blend of relaxation and adventure. We loved being nestled in the... More

Incredible location. Spend a week in the Zabuco Honeymoon suite for our honeymoon. Food was spectacular and the on-site amenities can keep you busy for days. Definitely check out the underwater cave! The Boiling Lake hike and the Canyoning day trips are a must as well. We're certainly looking forward to our next trip to Secret Bay and hoping we... More

We went here for our honeymoon and it was fabulous. The resort is beautiful pictures do not do justice. The place is set away from the main city and remains quiet the entire time. The staff go out of their way to accommodate all our needs. We were able to kayak, snorkel, water paddle all on the resort. We stayed... More

Secret Bay is one of the most unbelievable places I have ever been. My husband and I stayed in Zabuco I and it was unparalleled. The villa was beautiful and secluded, the food was incredible and the staff was super friendly and accommodating. In addition the Island is really great to explore; a real mix of adventure and relaxation. The... More

We loved Secret Bay! We chose to honeymoon in Dominica for one week because we wanted to experience a more adventurous and natural island. Secret Bay was the luxury we were looking for and I can guarantee it is the fanciest property in Dominica. We stated in the Mapou villa and it was a great experience for the price we... More

I took my extended family to Secret Bay for a week this summer: wife, teenage son, parents (for 70th birthday), sister and boyfriend. It was the best vacation ever for each of us. We stayed in the Zing Zing villa, which was absolutely stunning. Simple, elegant, comfortable. Fantastic covered porch for lounging and dining. We took advantage of the personal... More

Unique and special in every way. We could not have chosen a better place to spend the first week of our marriage. A honeymoon that we will NEVER forget and will dream of for years. My husband and I loved everything from the BEAUTIFUL villa (Zabuco II) & amenities in our villa and the views of the Caribbean, to the... More

We went to Secret Bay for our 13th anniversary, and had an amazing time. We were worried about the timing, as that is right in the midst of storm season, but we had wonderful weather the whole time - just one afternoon of on-and-off rain. We stayed in the Mapou bungalow, which was gorgeous. We cannot say enough about the... More

Quite simply this is probably the most amazing resort that we have ever stayed at. We managed to get the Zabuco Villa, which is perched on the very end of the cliff and is somewhat set back from the rest of the resort. We loved it. I think that of all the places we have been it might have been... More
