Jungle Bay Resort
Jungle Bay features thirty-five tastefully furnished tropical hardwood cottages elevated on wooden posts, nestled beneath the undisturbed jungle of Dominica and in harmony with nature. Cottages are spacious and feature wood furnishings all designed and hand crafted at the resort. Cottages are perched amongst Cedar, Gomier and Galba trees and spring fed stream cascades along the valley below. Great care was taken to preserve the forest in its original form. Access to each unit is through a series of footpaths and stone staircases allowing you to explore the tropical plant life along the way. The low impact night lighting along with the relaxing sound of the Atlantic surf and forest creates a surreal ambiance.

Spa and yoga services are available on site, and the location is well suited for additional exploration of the island.

Jungle Bay’s focus is on maximum community participation and contribution to biodiversity conservation with minimal environmental disturbance. While providing guests with phenomenal tourism experiences the lodge provides meaningful employment, developing local capacity and supporting social programs that improve the standard of living of our host communities and ensure environmental protection. This is the comprehensive vision of Sam and Glenda Raphael, a Dominican couple who returned to their homeland after studying in the USA, with a strong desire to develop an enterprise that would give back to the local community and boost the rural economy.

The Jungle Bay Community Fund is comprised of donations from guests, staff (they generously give 10% of their tips/gratuities), and lodge owners who together commit to supporting community needs. The fund now also hosts a Travel Philanthropy Day each September where persons from the surrounding communities gather to commemorate the “Jungle Bay spirit” of supporting the social development of nearby villages. The fund supports numerous local health, education, and social welfare projects.
