This was my fourth visit to Secret Bay and we were fortunate to be some of the first guests there following the almost complete rebuild of the hotel. I saw Secret Bay about 4 weeks after hurricane Maria devastated the island in September 2017 and could not believe the

Secret Bay is an truly special place on a truly special island. We had the privilege of spending a couple of days in Ylang Ylang II in November. The villa is spacious and beautiful! We had two large verandahs with views of the Caribbean, a full, pre-stocked kitchen, a closed off

It is truly heartwarming to read about your love for Secret Bay and Dominica. The pleasure was all ours and sharing about life on the island, in addition to our concept of eco-luxury was delightful. The Secret Bay Family sends our love and we look forward to your next visit. We definitely need to spend more time together – there’s rainforest adventures, snorkeling, amazing food, relaxing massages and much more with your names on it. Hoping to see you again very soon.

Hi, Trinicrissy. Secret Bay is not an all-inclusive. Secret Bay offers an authentic, transformational experience, which allows our guests to escape their everyday lives and reconnect with self and partner in a pristine natural environment. Secret Bay rates include complimentary use of adventure gear, including snorkels, paddle boards, kayaks, GoPros, and more to explore our two secluded beaches on-property.

Secret Bay reopened fully on November 1, 2018 with six villas, an open-air restaurant, couple's spa and riverside wellness pavilion. Douglas-Charles (DOM), about 50 mins away, is fully operational and Portsmouth, 10 mins north of Secret Bay, is a bustling coastal town with a streetside Saturday farmers' market for local produce and a few sleepy seaside restaurants.

The resort is closed until November 2018 and unless something has changed with the rebuild there is no spa. It was you can get a message in your bungalow. The island was clobbered by the Cat 4 hurricane last August and rebuilding will be slow.

You pay for the food they stock Go out to eat. Enjoy the town and atmosphere. Prices are not that bad and everything we ate was awesome We brought back leftovers which gave us another meal. Please eat at Keepin it Real. Call ahead and drive out there when it's light out. Best food in all the Caribbean Have a great time. One of our favorite places ❤️

Hi Alecia S. Yes, there's great scuba diving near Secret Bay and all along the west coast of the island. Dominica is ranked a top 10 in the world and Secret Bay works with the best service providers on island - JC Ocean Adventures in the north, and Buddy Dive in the south. Book our Diver's Paradise package or schedule dives with our concierge.
