Overview

Photos and Description of this holiday cabin in Dominica - Roots Jungle Retreat

Cabin, Studio + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

We offer 3 different cabins for $95, $135, and $145 USD + tax, based on double occupancy, breakfast included. Each additional person is charged $15 USD + tax. Each cabin is unique and full descriptions can be found on our website.

Making use of local materials, our cabins were built by local Kalinago Indians to replicate a traditional Carib Kai Pai. This type of housing has been used for hundreds and hundreds of years. We worked hand in hand with the Forest Reserve in replanting trees for any of the lumber we used.The second main material is Bamboo, which has been harvested according to the mooncycles. (we never really got this, but our Kalinago friends were very serious about it) Each cabin was designed to fit in a specific area, leaving the least amount of impact on the rainforest. Inside the cabins you will find junglestyle comfort: quality bedding, lounging chairs to enjoy your own private deck overlooking the jungle and spacious bathrooms.

We are 12 minutes off the main road which takes you deep into the rainforest. 16 resident Sisserou parrots live in the trees on property at various times throughout the year. You can relax by the riverside and use our sauna or go out and explore beautiful Dominica.

Breakfast is included each day and you have the option of lunch and dinner which reasonably priced and using all natural foods that are grown locally.

Please contact us for more details and questions, and check out our website! We are here to help you have a great vacation in the unique natura isle of Dominica!

Roots

  • 5 out of 5
We had read so many good things about this place, that our expectations were already high, but it really was much better than expected! The name very much describes it, it is coming back to the roots. Here you do feel like you are living nature at its best. Accommodations are simple, but comfortable. The road was in a bad condition, but nothing too bad for a 4WD, is only 10' to the main road. Minimum electricity, but they are already working on a hydro project that should be functional very soon.

Roots Jungle Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great time at Roots, excellent setting in the forest, eco-conscious, delicious food, and great hospitality. Before arriving we several emails with questions, and asking for recommendations, which were replied almost instantaneously even before we decided to book with them. Nico and the staff at Roots were very friendly and attentive. Overall it was an experience that we will always remember, thank you Roots!!!

Roots Jungle Retreat - Amazing!

We loved staying at Roots Jungle Retreat, we experienced the Rainforest, with gorgeous views being up in the mountain. Despite the jungle setting, there were no bugs. Peace and tranquility.

Roots Jungle Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
We had an amazing time at this retreat. This is not your common vacation rental, the cottages are rustin, nice and clean. The cooking facilities are minimum, just a 2 burner stove, and a cooler (not a fridge), but you can use the refrigerator from the restaurant/bar area. Having said that, the food that Nico prepares was so amaziing that we ate always with him and never prepared anything ourselves. The road can be rough but hey, this is in the middle of the forest!

Quick summary: Roots is a beautiful, off-the-grid, resort in the heart of the rain forest with amazing food. It's in a great location to see the whole island. However, if you are looking for a vacation where you lay on the beach and have drinks brought to you all day, this is may not be the location for you.

More detail:
My wife and I (29 and 35 years old) just returned from 8 days in Dominica at Roots with Pat and Staci. In short, this was one of the top two vacations either of us have ever taken. Dominica is said to be the only island in the Caribbean that Columbus would still recognize and we now know why. It filled with lush rain forest, many rivers and waterfalls, and has a boiling lake, natural hot springs, and many beautiful black and white sand beaches... without another soul in sight. It is probably the last Caribbean island that has not yet been changed significantly by the tourist industry. Not only that, but the island is one of the safest areas in the world - both in terms of crime and in terms of natural dangers. There are no poisonous bugs, snakes, or other animals. Even in the rain forest, there are practically no mosquitoes or biting insects. After 8 days with no insect repellent, I came home with 3 mosquito bites.

About Roots lodging and location:
Simply put, Roots was everything we hoped for and Pat and Staci were the perfect hosts. Roots is positioned in the middle of the lush rain forest and was built in harmony with nature. Water for (water efficient) showers and composting toilets is from rain water collected off the roofs of the buildings. Buildings integrate seamlessly with the surrounding forest and are beautifully constructed with minimal impact their surroundings. The sound of the nearby Bamboo River and parrots and other birds can be heard in the background. We stayed in the newly-finished Arawak cabin and loved it. Despite what another reviewer said, we had plenty of privacy and never felt intruded on. Roots is pretty centrally located and is in a good location to serve as a home base to visit the rest of the island. If you are staying more than a week or so, it may be more efficient to split your visit between roots and another resort in the south or northeast of the island.

About Roots food:
Staci is a trained chef and her food is almost worth the trip to Dominica on its own. We ate at several other restaurants on the island and felt we had wasted those meals because Staci's cooking was so good. She uses mainly vegetable
