HEALING POWERS OF WATER

Yoga & Hot Sulphur Springs Retreat

7 Day Wellness & Yoga Retreat in Dominica

Dominica has been nicknamed the "Nature Isle of the Caribbean” and is also known as the hidden jewel of the Caribbean.

The island boasts a variety of natural attractions including 365 rivers and streams, hidden waterfalls, freshwater lakes, hot sulfur springs, a boiling lake (considered the world’s second largest), lush mountainous tropical forest, and it is the home of many rare plants, animals, and bird species.

The island of Dominica differentiate itself in many ways from other Caribbean islands; instead of mass tourism, noisy bars and night clubs, visitors will find tranquility, plenty nature and very friendly people. A dream for eco-lover’s, adventurer, hikers, divers and bird watchers.

Jungle Bay is a unique oasis for nature lovers, individualists, active and adventurous travelers, as well as for those who seek tranquility, relaxation, yoga and wellbeing. A place to wind down, to rejuvenate your mind and body in a natural environment.

Jungle Bay is located on the south west coast, only 20 minutes from the capital of Roseau, above the Caribbean Sea, the charming fishing village Soufriere and the marine sanctuary of Soufriere & Scotts Head.

The 60 tastefully designed villas are nestled within tropical trees, banana plants and flowers. The hotel combines barefoot luxury with ecologically & socially responsibility and offers an outstanding hospitality service.

Everything will be organized for you: transfers (from/to port/airport), guided hikes, excursions & activities, spa treatments & massages, as well as delicious and fresh island meals.

Dominica’s underwater terrain is as diverse as the island’s terrestrial areas with a wide variety of marine life and dramatic underwater features including sunken volcanoes and deep drop-offs. You can explore 16 dive sites in the Soufriere Scotts Head Marine Reserve and some of them – according to experienced divers – are among the top sites in the entire Caribbean! All 16 dive sites are less than 15 boat minutes from the dive shop. One of the most popular snorkeling sites is Champagne Beach; at which tiny, warm bubbles float up from the geothermal vents, resembling a glass of bubbly Champagne.

Dominica is also known as the Whale Watching capital of the Caribbean; more than a half-dozen types of whales and a dozen types of dolphins have been identified in Dominica’s waters.

Exploring Soufriere Village & Hot Springs ~ Take a walk down with us to the Village of Soufriere and up to Soufriere Suplhur Springs. The natural springs are located about 1 mile east of the center of the fishing village of Soufriere. In pre-Columbian times, “sulphuric springs” were a place of mythic geography for the Amerindians, as Soufriere was an important meeting place for Kalinagos from the Caribbean islands

Caribbean Cooking Class ~ Learn how to prepare local Caribbean cuisine and take "a taste of Jungle Bay" home with you! Items from the Garden Tour will likely be included in the recipes. 

Perdu Temps Hike ~ Retrace the footsteps of Dominica’s “maroons” (run-away enslaves people). This hike is part of the historic Perdu Temps trail and takes about one and a half hours each way through secondary forest, mainly flat terrain and some river crossings. It gets steep and narrow as you approach the end and opens up to an area often described as “Paradise” or “The Garden of Eden”! You are invited to pick fresh tropical fruits from the trees. Explore Pump’s bio diversified farm with a huge variety of exotic fruits and vegetables. Tour the “Medical Garden” with a wide assortment of healing plants/natural herbal remedies.

Dominican plant and herb demonstration ~ This is an ideal opportunity to get to know more about the Dominican plants and herbs which you will discover during your hikes and on the Jungle Bay property. Learn their traditional uses and some health benefits. 

A dip in Titou Gorge ~ Listen for the distinct Mountain Whistlers along the way while taking in the views of volcanic peaks all around. Before driving back to Jungle Bay, stop in Laudat (also starting point of the Boiling Lake hike) to take a refreshing dip in the famous Titou Gorge (known from the famous movie “Pirates of the Caribbean).

Middleham Falls Hike ~ Explore the misty mountain trail to Middleham Falls taking in the lush rainforest vegetation along the way. Jaco parrots are occasionally heard or spotted along this trail. The end of the hike becomes a little steeper as you scramble your way down to the waterfall pool for a refreshing splash. Did you know that swimming in waterfalls exposes you to negative ions which are a purification to help counteract stress and strengthen your immune system? After hiking back, we will venture to Trafalgar twin waterfalls for a short walk (approx. 15 minutes) and another therapeutic swim.
