The luxurious guestrooms at Secret Bay include fully-equipped kitchens, and when guests want to whip something up, the staff will help with procuring local produce or guests can venture to the daily markets at Portsmouth or Roseau themselves, an exciting and enriching experience to be sure. In addition to the fully-equipped kitchens, guestrooms feature high-speed Internet, a Kindle with daily international newspapers, an iPod dock with surround sound, a full audio-visual system with DVD player and a selection of movies, and luxurious furnishings bathrooms. Guests can also opt for extra in-room amenities like a personal chef, pre-stocked food, organic food baskets, and even a private one-man jazz concert en-suite in the evening (only in the villas).

The main guestrooms are the Bungalows. These sustainably-built two-floor bungalows are up on the hillside nestled amidst nature with breathtaking views of the river and ocean below, offering a purely serene atmosphere for guests to relax.

The Zabuco Honeymoon Villa is named after a tree known for its aphrodisiac qualities, the reason being immediately apparent at first glance. This ultra-romantic, ultra-luxurious villa has a 180-degree view of the mountains and sea, offering the feeling of being perched above or even floating above the island paradise. The floors and interiors are made of Guyanese Greenheart, and the furniture is locally-made Dominican Red Cedar.

The Zing Zing Villas are two bedroom villas raised above the ground, providing guests with the same floating feeling as in the Zabuco Honeymoon Villa. These villas feature spectacular views, luxurious relaxation inside and outside, and the same type of beautiful interiors, flooring, and furnishings as in the honeymoon villa.
