The Residences at Secret Bay Launches Private Villa Home Sales & Introduces Brand-New Amenities
A Look at the Mouben Welcome House & Funicular and More — all with a Coveted Golden Ticket to Second Citizenship
Secret Bay has long been praised for its artful fusion of high design, local craftsmanship and authentic guest experiences, each custom curated to shape your perfect stay. And now, travelers from all across the globe have the rare opportunity to own a piece of the resort’s six-star grounds at The Residences at Secret Bay — the only real estate offering of its kind in the Caribbean that has now officially launched sales. Sustainable luxury villas, incomparable service, world-class amenities and, as Robb Report shared in a recent article, the chance to “gain second citizenship status and a passport.” Welcome to an entirely new era of vacation homeownership.
“Today is a much-anticipated day for Secret Bay as we launch sales for whole-ownership, and add to the available built inventory at the resort, including the Citizenship by Investment sales offering,” said Gregor Nassief, proprietor of Secret Bay and Chairman and CEO of GEMS Holdings Limited. “For those seeking a private island experience our location, tucked away on the unspoilt “Nature Island” — one of the Caribbean’s most sparsely populated, environmentally conscious and culturally rich countries — coupled with six-star hyper-personalised service, this is a rare investment opportunity for generations to come.”
This year, find yourself in one of The Residences at Secret Bay’s four newly-completed Hillside Ti-Fèy Villas (starting at $1.49 million) or reserve one of the larger off-plan Clifftop Estates (starting at $4.1 million). Each residence type is thoughtfully sited within its own secluded enclave with a generous, open floor plan and interiors that luxuriously reflect the culture and landscapes of the island, from Guyanese Greenheart hardwood architecture to locally-crafted artisanal furniture.
The collection of Hillside Ti-Fèy Villas features four brand-new, turn-key residences, each masterfully designed by architect Claude Lauture. Ranging in size from 1,680 to 1,830 square feet, the Hillside Ti-Fèy Villas come complete with a gourmet kitchen, private plunge pool, hammocks and day beds positioned to make the most of the views, and every modern amenity imaginable. Set within the densest part of the Dominica rainforest and showcasing spectacular jungle-to-ocean views, these villas foster an authentically natural experience complemented by the utmost luxury. Two additional Hillside Ti-Fèy Villas are currently under construction and available for purchase.
The exclusive off-plan Clifftop Estates sit on an elevated and completely private promontory and are far and away the most sought-after properties in the residential collection. Each half- to 2/3-acre lot features a primary estate villa and guest villa with 3,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space, three bedrooms, private plunge pools and magnificent ocean views. The Clifftop Estate comfortably accommodates 6-8 people, making it the idyllic multigenerational retreat.
The perks and privileges continue. Owners at The Residences at Secret Bay have coveted access to the resort’s six-star services and amenities, including the open-air Zing Zing restaurant helmed by Executive Chef Fábio Fernandes, the treetop couple’s Gommier Spa, serene riverside Bwa Mang Wellness Pavilion and seaside Zamann Watersports Hut.
Secret Bay is also set to introduce an array of brand-new amenities to the resort in 2021. Make a grand entrance at the architectural Mouben Welcome House and access your private villa home with total ease via the annexed funicular, delight in contemporary art, craft beer and gourmet eats at the Bwa Denn: Food, Art & Brewery, soak in nature with a cocktail in hand at the Gwiyavye’ Lap Pool & Bar. Within each thoughtfully designed space awaits an entirely novel Secret Bay experience that reflects the resort’s sophisticated design and warm hospitality.
With the purchase of your very own private villa also comes sought-after access to an external exchange programme through ThirdHome so you can trade your weeks at Secret Bay for a range of spectacular vacation spots around the world. ThirdHome’s remarkable portfolio features more than 11,000 properties in 94 countries, allowing you to fulfill your wanderlust twofold.
Additional benefits include high-speed Wi-Fi, access to Secret Bay’s high-performing property rental program, management and upkeep of the property, and commitment to leveraging the network to facilitate resale. “Financially, emotionally and spiritually, there is no other real estate offering that can compare. And, well, maybe that’s because there’s no other place in the world quite like Secret Bay,” shared Gregor Nassief.
Pricing for The Residences at Secret Bay starts at $1,490,000 USD for whole ownership or $208,000 USD per share for citizenship investors. For more information, visit secretbay.dm/residences.
