Laid-back island luxury
With crystal-clear Caribbean views from its six modern tree-house-style love nests, Secret Bay hotel – set on a lush hillside in rugged Dominica – is an unspoilt island secret that’s almost too good to share. Here, your days are spent lounging in a hammock in the private garden, swimming in caves and strolling the beach by moonlight…As if the setting alone isn't romance-inspiring enough, Villa guests can arrange for a private jazz performance on their terrace for a sexy serenade beneath the stars. Blanketed in lush jungle and diverse flora, marked by volcanic peaks and lava craters – including the second-largest thermally active lake in the world – and surrounded by the Caribbean Sea, Dominica is a nature-lover’s paradise. In fact, it’s known as ‘The Nature Island,’ making it a prime destination for hikers, birders, paddlers and divers. Glide along the Indian River in a traditional Caribe boat like a true islander or plunge into the colourful depths for some of the world’s most pristine scuba diving. The concierge will arrange trips with local guides for every outdoor pursuit from horseback riding to remote hiking on the over 300 miles of trails, deep-sea fishing and sailing excursions.
