Hotels in Dominica

Though most hotels in Dominica are luxurious and modern, they’re a far cry from generic beach resorts. Their particular locations, features and personalities make them feel special and unique–just like the island itself.

Located on a cliff-top in the island’s northwestern coast, Secret Bay is a secluded villa complex overlooking the Caribbean. This eco-friendly hotel brings guests as close to the island’s natural resources as possible, with access to two beaches (Tibay Beach and Secret Beach), a cave and a river to swim through, and an orchid garden. Luxury amenities like Kindles loaded with international newspapers, cooking service, and organic food baskets are also part of Secret Bay’s assets. Roseau’s Fort Young is one of the best hotels in Dominica. The oceanfront resort has a dive shop and its very own jetty, where you can have a boat pick you up and take you diving or bird-watching. After your ocean adventure, head to the rooftop jacuzzis or the spa to relax, and end your day at Palisades restaurant, known for its Caribbean specialties like Provision pie. Between the villages of Castle Bruce and Sineku, find Beau Rive, a hotel built amidst the tropical rainforest with breathtaking views of the ocean. Beau Rive has only ten rooms; none of which have cable TV or room service, making this a much simpler, laid-back experience. There is a lovely library and a restaurant serving home-style food for breakfast and dinner.

The diminutive Calibishie Cove—on the mountainous island’s beach-studded northeastern corner—is a colonial-style hotel with just four rooms, each with platform beds, large shutters, and a private patio overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

The coastline stretching out from the Jungle Bay Resort & Spa, a hilly 55-acre retreat at the forefront of sustainable development in Dominica, is ragged and green.
