Our favourite rooms
Private and luxurious, the Zabuco Honeymoon Villa puts a refined-jungle spin on your romance. Zabuco, another name for the Bwa Bande tree, is well known in Dominica as an aphrodisiac. And, after luxuriating in this two-storey Guyanese Greenheart-wood tree house, we can confirm that there’s something in the name. Spy the sea right from the king-size bed… or from the soaking tub for two… or from your private infinity pool. Perhaps you’d prefer the angle from your hammock with a glass of wine in hand from your smartly-stocked wine fridge? The options, like the views, seem endless.
No need to lug snorkel kits or yoga mats. The resort has all sorts of adventuring gear at the ready for everything from snorkeling and paddle boarding to biking and yoga.
As if the setting alone isn't romance-inspiring enough, Villa guests can arrange for a private jazz performance on their terrace for a sexy serenade beneath the stars.
Those over 12 are welcome, and the two-bedroom villas can accommodate two children.
Green and sustainable practices are used whenever possible. The villas and bungalows were constructed with sustainably sourced Guyanese hardwood, a water-saving drip irrigation system is in place and low energy lighting and appliances are in use throughout the resort.
