Dining at Secret Bay
Part of the luxury of staying at Secret Bay is the fresh, sustainable cuisine you’ll encounter during your stay, satisfying the mind and body in one dream holiday. Whether you choose to dine in-villa or at our open-air restaurant, each meal is ethically prepared by Executive Chef Grant Lynott who reimagines fresh, vibrant ingredients that are foraged right here on property or sourced from nearby fishers and farmers markets. It is this innovative, hyperlocal culinary concept that allows for a more intimate and traceable connection between guests and land, earning Secret Bay its reputation as a leader in sustainable food tourism.
Zing Zing Restaurant
Secret Bay’s open-air Zing Zing restaurant offers locally-sourced fare set to jaw-dropping views of Tibay Beach, setting a romantic scene with a canopy-style roof, display kitchen and private dining room. The restaurant is open daily for lunch from 12-3:00pm, featuring inspired island-to-table plates, and nightly for dinner from 6-10:00pm, with four set courses following Executive Chef Grant Lynott’s innovative “no menu” concept, which allows for more experiential dining. Simply secure your table with your villa host for an intimate dining experience to write home about.
In-Villa, Deck or Beach Dining
If you wish to dine in the luxurious comfort of your own residence, fancy an intimate set up for two on one of the grounds’ quiet decks overlooking the Caribbean Sea, or are planning a full day well-spent in the sand, your dedicated villa host will take care of all the dining details — from setting the table and mixing cocktails in-villa to a packed picnic lunch paddled out to you on Secret Beach — so you needn’t to lift a finger.
Lunch is ordered à la carte off our Island Harvest menu and features inspired sea- and farm-to-table plates while dinner follows Chef Grant Lynott’s innovative “no menu” concept at Zing Zing or in-villa (with the option to omit courses, as desired). And in between, reach for our Cravings menu for a late afternoon bite sure to satisfy.
Every Secret Bay stay includes a complimentary Organic Breakfast Basket, filled with a supply of farm fresh eggs, organic fruit, homemade granola, yogurt, bread, jam and dried fruit, coffee beans and local lemongrass and cocoa teas, pre-stocked and replenished, on request, for the duration of stay.
In addition to each villa’s complimentary Organic Breakfast Basket, guests have the option to pre-stock their villa kitchen with their favourite foods, from specialty ingredients for an decadent breakfast to cooking essentials and homemade snacks, beverages and a medley of locally-grown organic produce, all of which you may note on your pre-arrival questionnaire or request from your villa host during your stay. Whether you choose to cook in your fully-equipped European gourmet kitchen or have your villa host prepare breakfast to your specifications, you can rest assured that all ingredients are of the highest quality, sourced either on property or from nearby markets.
