Located on the island of Dominica, in the general vicinity of Dublanc, Secret Bay Resort offers a warm welcome to guests who are thinking about basing their vacation on this beautiful island. It's south-southwest of the center of Portsmouth.


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.

Activities and Amenities

Secret Bay has not one but two idyllic beaches with excellent swimming conditions- Tiaby Beach and soft-sand Secret Beach. Secret Beach in particular features spectacular snorkeling thanks to clear teal water and coral and other rich sea life, and Secret Bay has swimming and snorkeling gear ready for guests. There is also exciting cave swimming around, an adventure that a staff member will join guests on their first time. The Cario River empties itself amidst the mangroves at Tibay Beach and also provides great swimming with cooler waters. Kayaks and paddle boards are available for guests who want to go out to sea a bit, and mountain bikes are available for exploring the island (which can also be done with some excellent hiking nearby).

The Souce Shack is an informal outdoor snack bar with homemade snacks, smoothies, fresh-squeezed juice, and even evening meals. This is the location for informal get togethers where guests can get to know each other and the staff over fresh juice and a sunset.

Secret Bay offers to pre-stock kitchens with guests' favorite food as will as local, organic goods for when they need to cook for themselves; organic food baskets are also available. When cooking sounds too laborious (or a professional's touch is desired), privately cooked meals are available (two meals a day maximum). Special accommodations can be made based on special diets. Guests can also request a personal renowned Dominican chef for a meal. Guests are of course welcome to go down to Portsmouth and eat out at a restaurant, that is if they can pry themselves away from their luxurious accommodations.

Outside of the on-location dining options, travelers looking for further culinary diversity might also think about the region's other local restaurant choices. Guests looking for a bite to eat will encounter a small handful of restaurants within reach. It can be a time-saver to pick out a few restaurants in the area that are worth trying, though Secret Bay Resort provides dining on-site. To find out more about dining in this area, click here.
