Zabuco I


1 2 1

Secret Bay's original Zabuco Villa is where the beautiful dream of Secret Bay began. Built on the exact spot at the end of the peninsula where proprietor Gregor Nassief planned to build his dream home, Zabuco I captures the resort's inherent aura of romance, providing the ultimate escape for those in love. Built on a majestic clifftop promontory, Zabuco 1 allows you and yours to feel like true nobility as you float above the ocean below.

The view from Zabuco 1 is truly panoramic from all sides of the cliffs out to the sea, best enjoyed from the outdoor deck or plunge pool. Guests also have exclusive use of the enchanting Wild Orchid Garden Decks - the perfect spot for secluded romance and relaxation or to watch the sun slowly set into the sea. In 2013, Zabuco 1 was voted the third sexiest bedroom in the world by the Smith Awards.

The luxury Zabuco 1 is situated at the furthest point of the Secret Bay promontory with breathtaking 180-degree views over the mountain peaks of Dominica and the sparkling Caribbean Sea. The floors and interiors are made of splendid Guyanese Greenheart; the beautiful bedroom furniture was made from Dominican Red Cedar by local craftsmen; and the finishes throughout the villa are of luxurious quality. You’ll feel as if you’re floating above the world in this airy, sunlight-filled yet totally secluded space.

Composed entirely of sustainably-sourced Guyanese hardwood and Red Cedar, the villas offer the most luxurious experience in harmony with nature, as Secret Bay exists in a beautiful equilibrium between natural environment and guest comfort.

Dominica is ahead of the curve with respect to its practice of sustainable tourism, and Secret Bay, in particular, exists upon a system of values to sustain the natural purity of its native community and habitat. Secret Bay's developers and staff are committed to maintaining the land in the pristine condition in which it was discovered, and a top priority is to employ people from neighbouring communities, buy local produce, and support local artisans and businesses. Encouraging a genuine and mutually-beneficial interaction between guests, staff, island locals, and the island itself, Secret Bay presents a truly coveted opportunity to revel in ethical luxury.

Experiences at Secret Bay
One of the Caribbean's most secluded swimmable beaches, Secret Beach evokes the feeling of being blissfully marooned on a remote island paradise. Its soft white sand and shallow turquoise waters, hugged in an intimate cove, are only accessible by sea. Revel in the romance of its private setting, adventure to its hidden sea cave or explore the vibrant marine life just beyond the shore with our complimentary snorkel gear. Access Secret Beach via a quick kayak, paddle or swim from Tibay Beach, or arrange for one of our private skiffs to take you to its shores.

Refresh and rejuvenate with a yoga or meditation class at Secret Bay's brand new Bwa Mang Wellness Pavilion. Whether you want an intimate session with a loved one or alongside other guests in a small group, the Bwa Mang Wellness Pavilion provides the perfect setting to realize your greatest wellness ambitions while suspended over the magical Cario River with Tibay Beach just beyond.

Massage is a necessity that feels like a luxury. Secret Bay's massage therapy at the new Gommier Spa is perfect for relaxing tense muscles after hiking, calming stressed minds after travel or simply indulging in much-deserved self care. During your blissful session you will be soothed by the natural soundtrack of ocean waves and song birds while your spa therapist uses locally blended oils to recharge your body.

Discover the excitement of darkness becoming light at the Sea Cave, as you emerge from underwater into a magical grotto filled with ethereal light and the rhythmic slapping of water against rock. Guided tours can be arranged!

Tucked into the lush cliffside alongside Tibay Beach, Secret Bay's new Zamann Watersports Hut is your go-to destination for all things nautical. Here, guests can access any adventure gear of their choosing - whether that be kayaks, paddle boards or snorkeling equipment - and arrange beach pickups for water-based activities so as to experience the best of the Caribbean Sea just moments from your villa doorstep.
