Secret Bay, an exclusive eco-luxury boutique resort located on the pristine, unadulterated island of Dominica, is pleased to debut two new villas.
The new guest accommodations, described as a “bower of bliss” or “magical tree house escape,” are an architectural accomplishment — standing up on a single “stem,” or one, primary support.
The nearly 1,600 square foot villas feature one bed and bath, two decks, an elevated pool directly accessible from the bedroom, an outdoor shower, a barbecue and a hammock sofa—the ideal setting for an unforgettable retreat.
The villas are thoughtfully named “Ylang Ylang” because their exterior shape is inspired by the eponymously named legendary flower, one that first originated in Indonesia, yet these days can be found growing around Dominica. Best known for its aroma – the plant’s essential oils are extracted to make some of the world’s most sensuous perfumes including Chanel No. 5 – it’s said to have a calming effect, reducing blood pressure and aiding in relaxation. Shrouded in mystery, either meaning ‘wilderness’ or ‘rare,’ few plants better capture the essence of Secret Bay than the Ylang Ylang.
With the addition of these two new villas, Secret Bay now features a total of eight secluded and sustainable villas and bungalows that are nestled in nature and positioned on a breathtaking clifftop overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
Offering a wealth of unique experiences, completely personalised fine dining, architecturally stunning treehouse-style accommodations and night and day access to remote beaches, Secret Bay provides guests the ultimate five-star hideaway experience.
Secret Bay is has received numerous accolades, including Travel & Leisure’s World’s Best Awards 2016, Condé Nast Johansens’ Best Green Hotel 2016 in the Caribbean & Pacific, TripAdvisor’s 3rd Best Small Hotel in the Caribbean, as well as being featured as part of Caribbean Journal’s Coolest Hotels for 2016.
