Hideaways that help save the earth without skimping on romance

Jungle Bay Resort & Spa

Dominica abounds with natural beauty—from its hidden waterfalls and natural hot springs to the banana birds chirping overhead. At the Jungle Bay resort, couples are invited to revel in the gorgeous surroundings, whether they're hiking to the vaporous Boiling Lake or enjoying a couples massage in a private studio with an ocean view. The resort's 35 cottages, built from found wood and volcanic stone, are perched on wooden posts beneath the forest's canopy to reduce soil disruption. Natural ventilation flows through the cottages, eliminating the need for air-conditioning. The on-site restaurant serves 95-percent locally grown organic food, and all food waste is recycled in compost bins.
