Before it was a global mandate, Secret Bay was all about seclusion and safety due to the values the property was built on back in June 2011. Their “Stay Well Certified” program is built on three principles: green and clean practices, nutrition-based vitality and Dominica’s healing biodiversity. Sounds like an interim vaccine to me? In recent months we have all become more familiar with the importance of healthy surroundings, nutrition and overall well being. Which is what makes Secret Bay the perfect place to escape your everyday quarantine life and try infuse a little “normalcy”.

The Dominican government is requiring “On-island, visitors are required to stay at a certified ‘Safe in Nature’ property” and luckily Secret Bay is deemed one of those properties! There is plenty of seclusion, nature, adventure, and ocean surrounding the property and yet still maintains the ability to arrange land and safe approved ‘Safe in Nature’ experiences”. Which will comprise of only you and your guide, whom will take all the precautions necessary to stay safe and virus free.

To say Secret Bay lives up to its name is an understatement. If you are seeking respite, solitude, inspiration and a high level of hospitality? Start planning a trip to Secret Bay! Not to mention, the perfect getaway to maintain proper social distancing. Dominica as an island, is rated “top 15 Covid-19 recovering countries” boasting a 100% recovery rate.

The people of Dominica are warm, happy and proud of where they are from. An island that has had many hardships of late: Hurricane Maria, tropical Storm Erika and now Covid. But you wouldn’t know it. Resilience is something that they breathe.
