We are just back from an extraordinary honeymoon at Secret Bay in Dominica. We stayed in the Zabuco Honeymoon Villa III from August 8-13. Secret Bay exceeded our expectations on so many levels! First, the setting was magical. We loved sitting on our deck and watching the clouds and light shifting, the mountain tops appear then disappear in mist, the... More

My wife and I recently returned from our week long honeymoon at Secret Bay. Without a doubt we will be making a return trip to Dominica and Secret Bay when the opportunity presents itself. We found Secret Bay via some crafty internet research. Knowing we only had a week for our honeymoon we concentrated on the Caribbean to maximize our... More

My husband and I recently returned from a 7-night stay at Secret Bay’s Zabuco I villa to celebrate our fifth anniversary. While there are some positives about Secret Bay (e.g. terrific views, beautiful location) and Dominica is undeniably beautiful, there were simply too many issues during our stay to recommend this resort to discriminating travelers, particularly those planning a special...

Hi bostongal19 We appreciate all aspects of the review – the good (our villa attendant service, the food, the views, the location) as well as the bad (your numerous issues with the villa and the amenities, and the lack of attention to detail).

We have been doing projects in Portsmouth for several years now with the hospital, and I thought it was time to bring the rest of my family to Dominica that hadn't been on prior trips. Gregor and company went out of their way to make the ZingZing available and we were once again in Jurassic bliss. The room is incredible,... More

Simply marvelous! The service was really splendid. Very nice, hospitable people. The resort is very luxurious and everything was just beautiful; the spot and the scenery. Actually it was a jaw-dropping experience. I really enjoyed my time there. It's private and it's now my secret getaway. I definitely plan to visit again in the near future. Thank you secret bay...

From the moment we landed in Dominica it was apparent how proud everyone was of their country, and after our time there, I now understand why! Dominica is stunningly beautiful and unlike any island I have ever visited. Everywhere you look there are papaya, almond, coffee, avocado, breadfruit and coconut trees, not to mention the hundreds of rivers and gorgeous... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tucked away on the unspoilt nature island of Dominica, Secret Bay offers sustainable luxury villas and bungalows and is the perfect place for a honeymoon, anniversary or the secluded holiday of a lifetime. Situated on a cliff-top overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Secret Bay is unique in its diversity: two beaches, the magical Cario River, a spectacular sea cave and two distinct micro-climates. Secret Bay is becoming known as one of the best boutique resorts in the Caribbean - and indeed the world - for honeymoons, anniversaries, small family escapes and adventure vacations. In 2013 Secret Bay was chosen as the number one luxury resort in Caribbean by Islands Magazine; and its Zabuco Honeymoon Villa was voted as having the 3rd sexiest bedroom in the world at the Smiths Awards. ... more   less
