Secret Bay continues to impress internationally

Secret Bay

Secret Bay continues to make headlines as reviews and accolades pour in, praising the luxury resort’s ability to provide guests from all over the world with sustainable, luxurious lodgings.

The resort continues to be known as a one-of-a-kind Caribbean experience as a private refuge within the jungle that brings to life the rich island culture mixed with six-star hospitality.

Secret Bay is included in American Airlines’ widely circulated travel book, American Way, as a popular spot for open-air leisure. The publication writes: “For remote relaxation, you can’t beat the 10 sumptuous villas at Secret Bay.” The article also discusses how visitors may take advantage of any of the services from their in-villa ‘outdoor terrace, which offers a panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea.

It was also mentioned in the Boston Globe, one of the major newspapers in the United States, as a growing destination for private ‘vaxications’ among vaccinated family and friend ‘pods.’ The Boston Globe reports on an increase in demand for private excursions following the vaccination distribution, highlighting Secret Bay as a hidden sanctuary.

In their piece titled “The world’s most breathtaking clifftop hotels,” CNN Travel ranks Secret Bay first. The all-villa rainforest resort, perched on a high promontory, is highlighted in the newspaper as one of the most desired stays in the world.

Secret Bay was the first to be recognized in Forbes’ list of 9 beautiful villas accompanied with Relais & Chateaux food and service. The newspaper highlights the jungle resort’s Zabuco Honeymoon Villa I, describing it as a “romantic, one-bedroom hideaway” with 180-degree views of the Caribbean Sea and mountains.

Dominica is featured in Hello magazine as a slice of paradise, with Secret Bay as an ideal hotel on the island. Secret Bay is praised in the article for its unique romantic location and Caribbean Sea cliffside background.

Secret Bay is named the #1 Hotel in the vanguard of sustainability and encompasses the essence of Caribbean luxury in Essence’s 8 Over-The-Top Suites Around The Caribbean To Inspire Your Wanderlust.

The Caribbean Journal also released their official The Cool List: The 10 Coolest Caribbean Hotels for 2021, which ranked Secret Bay first. From vast internal areas to breathtaking plunge pools (and on-call concierges), it’s a striking picture of what Caribbean hospitality may be, according to the article.

Other famous magazines and websites such as Robb Report, Lonely Planet, Irish Tatler, House Beautiful, Cosmopolitan, Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure all spoke highly about the resort and most ranked it in their top 10 list.

    Wonder how those articles addressed the fact that Local inhabitants CANNOT enjoy the natural phenomenons in that area including but not limited to the unique formation of what appears to be and underground cave at that Location,,,

    When this Lot of Land adjacent to that Beach area was not in the Interest of a Tyrannically influenced individual, access to that Beach and the Cave was a well cherished excursion for the local High Schools Geography Classes, but since the inception of this Gregor Nassieff concept, Locals are barred from even swimming in the body of water in the vicinity, much more for a comfortable Sunday Picnic on that Beach, like locals did before,,,

    I am sure the personnel at Castaways Beach Hotel In Mero years ago used to do the same, to Mero people who wanted access to that beach,,,

    Ask someone today about Castaways Beach Hotel and they wouldn’t know what or where you talking about,,,

    Since when you hear Man own the Beach & Sea adjacent to the Land…

      Great point, RastarMarn, that many have ignored. The best beaches and natural phenomena are off limits to the locals. These were given from the Creator for the citizens and residents to enjoy but corrupt politicians are denying their own brothers and sisters this unalienable right of access to these unique places.

      But, I’ve learnt, if you don’t stand up and assert your rights you will lose them. Dominicans, as Roosevelt recently declared, are not assertive ( my adjective). So the evil doer will strip you of your rights while empowering and accommodating affluent foreigners.

      First, Government/Planning determine access issues, not private developers. Second, I was enjoying that beach and cave two weeks ago with family, guided my a cool Rasta (forgot his name) from Indian River. DO NOT go into the cave alone without a guide, tides can make it dangerous. Best access is by sea/beach, no other is safe at this stage.

    Undoubtedly, Secret Bay is located in a breathtaking location, in fact, one of the most naturally picturesque places in the world.

    These accolades by these that are given by these magazines, websites, etc cetera, are much ado about nothing. These travel journalists give these great reviews to almost every place they visit throughout the Caribbean.

    DNO, do you think it is right for billionaires (of Arab descent)to get unlimited assistance,monetary and otherwise, to live their affluent lifestyles while tens of thousands of indigent natives cannot even get a small stimulus in times like this of unbearable hunger and hardships?

      Why are you bringing race into this? That is supposed to be more proof of wrong doing? Imagine an American saying that but instead replacing it with (of black descent). Before you ask others if they doing right make sure you do the right thing yourself.

      We love to hate…… “These travel journalists give these great reviews to almost every place they visit throughout the Caribbean…..” what other Dominica or Caribbean hotel has stacked up these accolades in 2021? Name one pls and list the accolades…. do your homework Ibo. (and check out “press” on the web page for previous years).

    By now the state of Dominica has to be the majority shareholder of this business. I wonder how much of dividends is being paid to the state coffers?
