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 I allows you and yours to feel like true nobility as you float above the ocean below.
The view from Zabuco I 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 I was voted the third sexiest bedroom in the world by the Smith Awards.
DESIGN & LOCATION
The luxury Zabuco I Villa 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.
Secret Bay’s concierge will create personalized itineraries for your stay with us, 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 discreet service, allowing you to experience the perfect balance of romance, privacy and pampering.
