Ylang Ylang Villas at Secret Bay
Caribbean / Dominica / Secret Bay
Rising up from the ground from a single stem, the Ylang Ylang Villas are the latest stunning creation at Secret Bay.
Marveling at how the villas and their vast balconies are surrounded by trees, these residences have been called love nests, “bowers of bliss” or magical tree house escapes.
The villas are called Ylang Ylang because their shape resembles the petals of this legendary flower, one that first originated in Indonesia, yet these days can be found growing on the property. Few plants better capture the essence of Secret Bay than the Ylang Ylang. Even its name is shrouded in mystery, either meaning ‘wilderness’, or ‘rare’. It fits perfectly to the location and the experiences offered at Secret Bay.
The nearly 1,600 square foot villas feature one bed and bath, a fully equipped kitchen in the veranda, 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.
Guests can have personalized itineraries created for their stay – everything from active and extreme adventure to peaceful relaxation. From custom-prepared meals and one-man music concerts in the privacy of your villa to hiking the Caribbean’s longest hike-able trail or trekking to one of only two boiling lakes in the world. Your dedicated villa attendant will be on call and 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.
