Secret Bay - Zabuco Honeymoon Villas II & III
Caribbean / Dominica / Secret Bay
Secret Bay’s Zabuco Villas are the most beautiful Honeymoon villas in the Caribbean.
Perfect for all romantic occasions—including honeymoons, private beach weddings, anniversaries, babymoons or simply rekindling your love and reconnecting with one another—these idyllic hideaways are the ultimate retreats to do so. The Zabuco Villas are secluded on the north edge of the property overlooking Secret Beach, the paradisaical white-sand escape accessible by a quick swim, kayak or paddle board. Surrounded by lush foliage and gardens, Zabuco II and III are for guests who want the feel of renting their very own secluded villa home combined with discreet yet personalized five-star service.
Zabuco is another name for the Bwa Bande tree, renowned in Dominica for its aphrodisiac qualities. In 2013 the Zabuco Honeymoon Villas were voted the third sexiest bedroom in the world by the Smith Awards, complete with indoor-outdoor living room, breathtaking plunge pools and hammocks and daybeds positioned to make the most of the views in your own private tropical escape. Both villas located in a more elevated position than the original Zabuco Villa and, like the original villa, they are raised to ensure the most spectacular views out to sea and that same feeling of floating in the air that has captivated so many guests since we first opened.
Design & Location
Zabuco Villas II & III offer breathtaking 180-degree views over the mountain peaks of Dominica and the sparkling Caribbean Sea. The floors and interiors are made of Guyanese Greenheart; the bedroom furniture was crafted from Dominican Red Cedar by local craftsmen; and the finishes throughout the villa are of the utmost luxurious quality. You’ll feel as if you’re floating above the world in an airy, sunlight-filled yet totally secluded space.
Secret Bay’s concierge will create personalized itineraries for your stay, arranging everything from yoga at the Bwa Mang Wellness Pavilion to couple’s massage at the tree-top Gommier Spa or exhilarating adventure in the mountainous landscape of Dominica. Your dedicated villa attendant will be on call and will provide discrete service, allowing you to experience the perfect balance of romance, privacy and pampering.

Elegantly immersed within a clifftop rainforest on “The Nature Island” of the Caribbean is Secret Bay, among the leading boutique hotels in the world. Comprised of eight secluded and sustainably-built villas and bungalows, Secret Bay is the genuine embodiment of a luxurious hideaway, allowing guests to melt into the soul of the island; to dwell within a rudimentary habitat amid five-star amenities and access to unfathomable experiences.
Conceptualized by celebrated architect Fruto Vivas, Secret Bay’s body of residences are renowned for their artful fusion of high design and locally-sourced craftsmanship, forming open-air luxury residences enveloped in an eden of lush vegetation. As an eco-luxury resort composed entirely of sustainably-sourced materials, Secret Bay exists in a beautiful equilibrium of responsibility to its environment and a commitment to guest comfort. A dedicated attendant tends to guest needs in-villa, inclusive of intimate fine dining, spa services and an adventure concierge. Five-star service is extensively personal, from mattress firmness to pre-stocked refrigerators, tailored to the desires, lifestyles, and preferences of each individual guest.
This secluded compound is just a 10-minute drive to the quaint town of Portsmouth and one hour from Dominica’s capital, Roseau. The beautiful expanse of Prince Rupert Bay, edged by one of the longest, often deserted, white-sand beaches on the island, is a 10-minute kayak ride away. Other nearby sites include the well-preserved Fort Shirley at the Cabrits National Park, the ever-enchanting Indian River and the Northern Forest Reserve.
Secret Bay has direct access to two paradisaical swimming beaches: Tibay Beach, and the soft white-sand Secret Beach, inclusive of a natural rock-formed arch, hidden sea-cliff cave, and rich marine life. Guests are given unlimited complimentary access to adventure equipment such as kayaks, paddle boards, and snorkel gear.
While a Secret Bay getaway is one enveloped in natural luxury—from the lush rainforest just beyond your bedroom to the open-air architecture of your state-of-the-art kitchen—we believe indulgence shouldn’t stop there. The luxurious amenities complete the most unrivaled, romantic Caribbean escape. Begin your day with a rejuvenating yoga class at the Bwa Mang Wellness Pavilion, find peace of both body and mind at the Gommier Spa, delight in succulent local fare at Zing Zing Restaurant and cap your evening with cocktails on the Vetivert Sunset Deck. This is, truly, paradise found.
Please note: The whole resort including the Zabuco Honeymoon Villas, Ti-Fèy Villa, and the Ylang Ylang Villas can be rented exclusively. Contact a villa specialist for details.
