We spent four days at the rain forest paradise that is Roots earlier this year. Completely off grid - no phones and minimal internet - it's the perfect place to get away from the rat race. Walking through the towering forest that Roots is situated in, is a humbling experience. The resort itself is run a by a great young...

The service was very good. The owners are very nice and friendly. Our wooden house/cabin was simple but nice, which really adds up to the feeling of being in nature. You hear the rain ticking on the roof, from the veranda you have a beautiful view on the forest and in the morning you wake up with the view of...

Our stay at Roots was the highlight of our trip to Dominica. We chose the island because of our love of tropical rainforest, and our desire to escape from the rush and bustle of of modern life, so Roots was a perfect choice. Situated in stunning mountainous scenery, with lush, epiphyte covered forest, rushing mountain streams, colourful parrots and hummingbirds,...

Roots Jungle Retreat is THE place for people who want to enjoy nature. The jungle is all around and gives endless opportunities for walks, exploring or watching animals. The wooden cabins are clean, airy with showers, comfy mattresses and moscito nets. All have a balcony or patio and the view, especially from the second floor is great. The open cabin...

My partner and I spent a magical 10 days at Roots Jungle Retreat end of December. We arrived at night at this ecolodge in the middle of the jungle, and while the sounds of the jungle bode well, the full extent of the pristine jungle came really to life when we woke up the first morning. Breakfast on the common...

This real jungle lodge is situated on a wonderful place. It's not often to find such a clean and comfortable place on the island. We recommend to taste the delicious food and really enjoyed the personal atmosphere and warm welcome! The owners know a lot about the environment and the island, so we had many interesting discussions about, food, locals,...

Roots is a unique place in Dominica. Nested in the middle of the rainforest, it was the perfect retreat for us in the midst of tropical trees, birds and a beautiful garden. It's a 15 mn ride with 4WD car, from the main road, but this is not a surprise for Dominica ;-). The river that runs on the beautiful...

Roots is an amazing place to stay. The road was damaged in the hurricane in 2015, but will be fixed in October 2016. In the meantime, it is completely safe and passable with a 4WD and enough patience to drive slowly. If you are nervous about the drive, call the owners, Martin and Guadalupe, and they will pick you up....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Leave your everyday-world behind and join us in the magical jungle of Dominica. An untouched paradise where the air is clean, the water is fresh and the rainforest bursting with life. Right in the middle of it all you will find Roots Jungle Retreat. The perfect getaway for a natural, fun holiday, voted # 1 on Trip Advisor for the past year. Switch off your blackberry and experience the jungle sounds, the parrots and the fireflies, the refreshing water of the Bamboo river, and the beautiful organic food from our own jungle garden. We are 100% off the grid and eco-friendly. You will sleep in huts built by local Kalinago-Indians, with very comfortable bedding, as you need your rest after a day of fun. There are a million things you can do, but the great thing about Roots is that it’s also perfect for doing nothing at all. We are located next to the gorgeous Bamboo river and have our own swimming hole and little waterfall. You could just spend the whole day on the sundeck by the river reading a book. And we even have our own jungle style spa. We have built an Indian sweat hut for a nice detoxing experience. First you heat up until you start to sweat heavily, than you simply cool off in the river. Great for blood circulation and the immune system. But even more important: a great way to revive. More active visitors love to hike up the river. Further up on the mountain there is a bigger waterfall that is not reachable by road. You’ll have this magnificent place all to yourself! ... more   less
