Secret Bay 

Embrace the romance of being castaway

A luxurious eco-hideaway on the edge of a forested clifftop with secret beaches, off-menu dining and exceptional experiences.

Ten Guyanese Greenheart and red cedar wood villas tucked away in the treetops of living rainforest make Secret Bay an ultra-private romantic retreat. Flit from a jungle lap pool dip to the stunning sea view restaurant. Go barefoot on golden sands and kayak at sunset to Secret Beach. Guests can order everything from private one-man jazz concerts to guided rainforest hikes using their in-villa iPhone.

Why we love Secret Bay

  • Night snorkelling among branching basket stars and orange ball corallimorph.

  • An adults-only restaurant, Zing Zing’s experiential ‘off-menu’ dining concept is a wildly delicious treat.

  • Each high-spec villa comes with a private plunge pool, open-air kitchen and breathtaking ocean views

  • Foraging wild produce with the hotel’s chef in prep for a private in-villa cooking class.

Secret Bay's open-air Zing Zing restaurant, which has stunning sea views, sets a romantic scene with a canopy-style roof, display kitchen and private dining room. Lunch is ordered from a set menu, while dinner is an experiential affair with dishes created from the freshest local ingredients available that morning. This varied approach to lunch and dinner, plus picnic lunches if you’re out on day trips and organic breakfast baskets filled to the brim with fresh eggs, tropical fruit and home-made bread, means that dining here still feels diverse.
