10 Health Enhancing Elements of the Secret Bay Experience
Secret Bay is more than a vacation spot; it’s a transformative destination. Our guests travel from around the world for a mood-changing, perspective-shifting, full-body-aligning experience. Everything aspect of our resort—from how and where we build to the amenities we offer—is designed with wellness in mind. Learn how we support our guests’ total well-being below.
Less than 7 percent of our 40-acre property is marked for development, allowing us to space out each freestanding villa like its own luxury treehouse. Whether you’re retreating for the night or lounging during the day, we want you to be able to find peace within nature, undisturbed.
2. Organic Gardens
A new addition to Secret Bay is our organic gardens—located outside of each villa. While we do grow a variety of herbs and produce for use at Zing Zing restaurant on location, these gardens are truly for our guests. Harvest what you please to enjoy as is or prepare in your fully-equipped villa kitchen.
3. Green Cleaning Practices
In accordance with WHO standards, we use EPA-approved eco-friendly products to clean and sanitize throughout the resort. This ensures we keep things safe and healthy, without exposure to potentially harmful chemicals.
4. Yoga & Meditation Classes
One of our guests’ favorite offerings is our yoga and meditation classes. Available as solo sessions or couples classes, these open-air activities are nourishing for the mind, body, and soul.
5. Guided Adventure
On and near the resort, guests have opportunities to enhance their physical health without it feeling like exercise. Adventures like canyoning excursions, hiking to waterfalls, and even swimming with whales are ready and waiting. Bonus—many of these are once-in-a-lifetime experiences sure to enhance your mind and soul as well.
6. The Incredible Views
Even just viewing nature can help us relax and improve our nervous system. Whether you’re on your private villa balcony, gliding down a river or atop the ocean, sitting at dinner, or lying on the beach, there’s mood-enhancing beauty everywhere you look.
7. Gommier Spa
This open-air space overlooks Tibay Beach and is the ultimate place for relaxation and rejuvenation at Secret Bay. Services include solo and couples massages with deep-tissue or hot-stone add-ons, as well as our signature Gommier volcanic facial.
8. Nutrition-Based Vitality
Food is the ultimate source of health, and we put a lot of care into the food and beverages we make available to our guests. Utilizing fresh, organically grown and hyper local produce whenever available is just one of our pillars. Beyond that, we offer healthy juices and smoothies, immune-boosting shots, native herbal teas, and even superfood-fortified cocktails to support whole-body wellness.
9. Complimentary Equipment Rentals
Guests have access to a variety of adventure equipment—including kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, yoga mats, and snorkeling gear—to create their own Nature Island adventure. You’ll be able to enhance your health and wellness in a way that feels completely yours.
10. Sleep Hygiene Essentials
After a long day of traveling, your first night in paradise should be the best sleep of your life (as should all of the nights you stay with us). We’ve thought of everything to ensure that you are beyond comfortable. From allowing you to choose a mattress to providing sleep masks and earplugs, to making homemade herbal teas available and incorporating calming essential oils into turndown —we’ve got you covered.
