Where do I begin? Secret Bay is unlike anywhere I have ever been! An idyllic setting that seems to grow out of the earth itself. Secret Bay is nestled in a secluded setting of seaside forest far from anything that resembles a typical resort. All 6 villas are built from natural green heart wood which adds to the feeling that you are at one with the beautiful island of Dominica. Step onto your deck and you are surrounded by the sounds of nature. The rustling leaves move in response to the cool breeze, birds sing lovingly as they call out to one another as the oceans waves beat rhythmically onto the shore in the background. It is a cacophony of sounds and scents that I wish I was able to bottle to carry with me always.
How can a resort so in tune with nature feel so utterly extravagant you may ask? Its easy. The staff at Secret Bay are warm, friendly and attuned to your every need. Bianca was our attendant over our five day stay. Each morning she would ask us what we wanted to eat for dinner (no menu by the way, but who needs one?) and later in the day it was delivered to our villa where we sat on the deck and enjoyed our dinner by the moonlight. In the morning breakfast was delivered in the same personalized manner. Some mornings we skipped traditional breakfast to munch on delicious home made granola bars while sipping local coffee. My only regret is forgetting to secure the recipe for those granola bars!
Thank you Gregor Nassief and your wonderful staff, Anna, Bianca, Vincent and the rest of the team for memorable and reenergizing stay. We hope to see you all again very soon.
