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 trees overlooking a most breathtaking view of the coast. The staff were out of this world amazing and we asked them to surprise us every night with a different dish - they certainly did not disappoint, the food was phenomenal. We loved exploring the local dishes and they even through in some Bajan inspired dishes which thrilled us. They surprised us one night with a romantic dinner on the deck by the sea - it was an unforgettable night! I highly recommend the honeymoon package ;) Great value for money. The list of outdoor activities are endless, we still have so much to see that we will definitely be returning for an anniversary in the near future. Our tour guide Ryan was an outstanding source of knowledge and all around amazing guy! He was hired by Secret Bay to carry us wherever we wanted to go. If you want the most perfect eco tourism get away Dominica and Secret Bay should be your fIrst choice! We love you Secret Bay see you soon!

Room tip: We stayed in the Mapou Tree Bungalow which was so cozy and had a great view nestled in the tree tops.
Date of stay: November 2014

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 can bring the rest of the family with us. Thank you again to all of the staff for an incredible stay.

Hi Mathew O, it was our pleasure having you for such special occasion in your life. Thanks for writing a review and giving your feedback. It’s nice to know that food was “spectacular” and perhaps next time you can even try more variety of our local cuisine.

We hope to have you and your wife back with us soon and look forward to meeting the family..:)

Kind regards,

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 in the both the Zing Zing and Zucoba villas both were great but we loved the Zucoba. The island does not have a lot nightlife or great shopping but is great for outdoor adventures.

Room tip: There is a Masjid 10 min outside of the resort in Portsmouth and lots of halal food options. Our favorite was the usual spot - thai food. Others were Shawarma King, and a shack next to Ross with Indian halal food.

We will be back!
My wife and I continue to enjoy every wedding anniversary. In 27 years we have appreciated each other in many amazing ways. These includes; several vacations within the Caribbean, trips to North Central and South America, cruises vacations a trip to Hawaii and a nature expedition to the Galapagos, one we will never forget. Locally we have had the opportunity to enjoy some of the best hotels on the island. April 2014 was a blast for my wife Nella when we stayed at the secret bay for her 50th birthday, she had a time of her life. The years roll by quickly and October 4th 2014 meant a lot to us! 28 years of marriage. Since we are on island, and didn’t have travel plans, I asked my wife how she would like to celebrate our 28th anniversary; she did not hesitate but immediately replied, “Let’s stay at Secret Bay”. A few days later I spoke with Anna and a booking was confirmed for the period 3rd to 5th 0ctober 2014. Our bungalow was called Ti-fey which means (small leaves). The romantic setting captivated us immediately, the level of care and attention offered at that facility completely hypnotizes thus immersing you into an unbelievable mode of relaxation. A well stocked kitchen with a reasonable assortment of fine wines and champagnes added worth to one of the best nights of our lives. Dinner was served at our unit by Sarah- lee who did an incredible job with the presentation. The meal was so good we did not want brush our teeth that night (lol). Our weekend at Secret bay reminded us of how busy we can be in our normal lives and such moments spent treating ourselves are priceless.

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 staff at Secret Bay made all of our desire arrangements and had great suggestions for things we hadn't even thought of. It was a truly wonderful experience and we can't wait to find the time to go back!

Room tip: LOVED Zabuco Villa
