Fodor's Expert Review Jungle Bay Resort & Spa
White River, Delices, Point Mulatre, St. Patrick, Dominica
Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.
Sweeping views of the untamed Atlantic surround this luxury eco-resort, which sits on 55 acres of the only developed section of the island's southeast. No matter where you are at this peaceful hideaway, you can always hear the sea. Hovering over the ocean and surrounded by lush greenery, you may feel as if you are a million miles away from the rest of the world. Getting some exercise comes with the territory, as the resort begins at 200 feet above sea level and climbs up to 1,000 feet. Many rooms are perched high on the cliff (some require a 197-step climb) and have spectacular views. They are rustic looking but modern with some nice touches—coffeemaker, refrigerator, fresh fruit, flowers, and a delightful enclosed outdoor shower.Overlooking the sea and the pool is the resort's restaurant, the Pavilion, which uses local spices and produce in its shrimp curry and other delicious vegetarian, seafood, and chicken dishes (dinners are about $20). The Spa du Soleil has cliff-side treatment studios. Jungle Bay Resort is about 90 minutes from the airport and one hour from Roseau. Combo packages are a good value.
