Secret Bay

Top 10 Caribbean Resorts

Secret Bay is perched on top of the volcanic island of Dominica


Secret Bay

With just six lavish villas and bungalows, this best-kept secret is aptly named. It resides on a cliff top on the volcanic island of Dominica, and it strives to minimize its impact on the environment while maximizing the degree of pampering. Each accommodation boasts a full open-plan kitchen, and if you choose to cook for yourself (rather than take advantage of a private chef or complimentary meal service), the staff will happily organize a local market tour or help you prepare your fresh catch of the day. They can also arrange a one-man jazz concert on your spacious terrace to accompany your meal, as well as a relaxing massage or yoga session, kayaking excursion to Prince Rupert Bay or a scuba dive trip to Champagne, a bubbling underwater hot spring.
