Secret Bay has been named Travel and Leisure’s #1 Resort Hotel in the Caribbean, Bermuda and The Bahamas for 2022. This is the second time in three years the six-star all-villa resort topped the ‘World’s Best Awards’ readers’ survey for the region.

Dominica has also earned the #1 Island in the Caribbean, Bermuda and the Bahamas, topping the charts in its first appearance on the prestigious list. As one of the Caribbean’s most sparsely populated, environmentally conscious, and culturally rich countries, and an emerging travel destination, this is well-deserved recognition for Dominica.

“We are honoured and humbled to be recognised by Travel + Leisure and its readers as the #1 resort in the Caribbean for a second time,” said Dinesh Kissoon, general manager of Secret Bay. “This would not be possible without our devoted team and loyal guests who inspire us. Over the past couple of years, we’ve been reminded just how essential travel is to nourishing our souls, so we’re excited to celebrate this distinction with our peers as travel once again becomes an enduring pastime.”

Known for its remote locale, private accommodations with plunge pools, hyper-personalised service, island-to-table dining and no menu concept, chef-driven epicurean culinary experience, and wellness offerings, Secret Bay has won the hearts of guests seeking an under-the-radar luxury hideaway.

Tucked away on the unspoilt “Nature Island” — one of the Caribbean’s most sparsely populated, environmentally conscious and culturally rich countries — Secret Bay has been praised for its ability to effortlessly capture the luxury of time and space, along with its artful fusion of high design, local craftsmanship, commitment to sustainable development through numerous green and eco-friendly initiatives and its reputation for authentic guest experiences custom-curated to personal preference.

Secret Bay recently unveiled its newest resort amenities – Mouben Welcome House, Gwiyavye’ Lap Pool & Bar and Zing Zing Lounge – that are inspired by biophilic design and embrace the resort’s nature and sustainability design ethos. The additions are part of a master plan that includes forthcoming amenities like an art gallery, brewery and funicular, as well as additional villas that will ultimately create an even lower density product than what it is today with less than seven percent of the property allocated for development.
