Dining at Secret Bay

Part of the luxury of staying at Secret Bay is the colourful, delicious and sustainable diet you’ll encounter, satisfying the mind and body in one dream holiday. Each meal is prepared on-site by renowned Executive Chef Eric and his culinary team, using the most nourishing, flavorful, and colorful fare sourced from Secret Bay gardens and local markets. Chef Eric utilises wild herbs from the Secret Bay property to season his dishes and prepare healing herbal teas. By supporting local businesses and using the freshest ingredients, both the producers and consumers reap the benefits.

Private In-Villa or Deck Dining

Secret Bay’s most popular dining options involve dining in the luxurious comfort of a guest’s own villa, bungalow or on one of the many quiet decks overlooking the Caribbean sea. Avoid the hassle of shopping, preparing, and cleaning and enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal with our personalised cooking service or partake in our special Breakfast & Dinner package.

The Souce Shack

On the way to Tibay Beach is Secret Bay’s very own Souce Shack. Souce means “source” in Dominican Creole — a fitting title for Chef Eric’s kitchen, where his creativity and passion for fresh, local ingredients come to life. The Souce Shack is the perfect locale to connect with other guests and witness the preparation of the unique tastes of Dominica as you recount your days’ adventures.

Being one of only a handful of communal spaces located on the lush property, The Souce Shack provides a unique culinary experience and a place to foster relationships beyond the privacy of your villa or bungalow. Chat with the Secret Bay’s friendly staff, socialise with other travelers, or attend one of our casual gatherings as the sun sets upon the horizon: this is relaxed sophistication, Secret Bay-style.

Private Chef

A number of renowned Dominican chefs are available to come to your villa or bungalow and prepare a fantastic meal – an ‘a la carte’ just for you. Whether you wish to celebrate a special occasion or simply want to experience fine dining in the sea breeze upon your own terrace, we are able to bring the restaurant to you.

You are also more than welcome to watch the master chef as he/she prepares and cooks your incredible meal. Be sure to pick up tips about their special blend of Dominican and international cuisine to bring home with you. If you would like to enhance your dining experience with a private musical accompaniment, simply ask your villa attendant for details.

Pre-Stocking

The Secret Bay staff is happy to pre-stock your villa or bungalow with your favourite foods and a wide selection of locally-grown organic produce for your arrival. In addition to the well-stocked wine coolers available in the villas, we also offer a selection of fine wines from around the world stored in our professional temperature-controlled cellar. Whether you are in the mood for a chilled glass of Provençal rosé in your hammock or an exceptional vintage red to accompany your home-cooked meal, our experienced French sommelier will ensure that your residence is stocked with your ideal selection of fine wines.
