There aren’t enough stars on this website to accurately depict how much we enjoyed our stay at Roots Jungle Retreat and our whole Dominica vacation experience. As experienced travelers, my wife and I have been all over the Caribbean and have never experienced anything quite like Dominica. Form first sight on our aircrafts decent, we knew we were in for...

I can honestly say there aren't enough positive adjectives to describe the wonder you will experience at Roots Jungle Retreat! If you are looking for a small piece of paradise, you will certainly find it here. From the amazing rainforest sights and sounds to the fantastic freshly cooked meals, courtesy of Staci, this was a vacation nothing short of magnificent!...

Amazing. I've had the opp to travel to a couple of places in the Caribbean. Never have I been so close to the natural beauty that attracts us all to the islands in the first place. The jungle was right there. We were in the heart of a rainforest. Beautiful accomodations. You can tell love and dedication was put into...

I just got back from Roots Jungle Retreat, Central Preserve, Dominica and could not figure out the best way to describe it, so here is the best I can come up with: Disconnect and Get Connected.

I was one of a group of 7 men that stayed at Roots Jungle Retreat for a retreat 4 day weekend. I expected to have a good time but was pleasantly surprised by having a great time. What an amazing Eco lodge built and managed by Pat and Staci. It is located in a remote section of a true jungle...

Roots Jungle Retreat has been an amazing experience. The sounds of the jungle were like music to my ears. The rooms are super comfortable and have great energy.

The 45 minute ride from Melville Hall airport to Roots is brutal to say the very least but upon arrival it is briefly easy to dismiss the aches and pains that have set into your back and neck as you focus on the enchanting location, simple yet rustically elegant accommodations and the soothing symphony of sights, sounds and smells found...

At Roots. we are dedicated to giving all our guests the best possible vacation. We try pretty hard and are very proud of our number 1 position here on Tripadvisor. This guest, however, misbehaved so badly, (on and OFF our property), that we had to call the police. She spent several days in the police station and is NOT welcome...

From beginning to end, this was a fantastic experience. As we had no clue where to start, we selected Roots Retreat based on the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor, the Roots website itself, and the very helpful and warm messages we always received from Staci ever since we started to get in touch with them about booking our stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Leave your everyday-world behind and join us in the magical jungle of Dominica. An untouched paradise where the air is clean, the water is fresh and the rainforest bursting with life. Right in the middle of it all you will find Roots Jungle Retreat. The perfect getaway for a natural, fun holiday, voted # 1 on Trip Advisor for the past year. Switch off your blackberry and experience the jungle sounds, the parrots and the fireflies, the refreshing water of the Bamboo river, and the beautiful organic food from our own jungle garden. We are 100% off the grid and eco-friendly. You will sleep in huts built by local Kalinago-Indians, with very comfortable bedding, as you need your rest after a day of fun. There are a million things you can do, but the great thing about Roots is that it’s also perfect for doing nothing at all. We are located next to the gorgeous Bamboo river and have our own swimming hole and little waterfall. You could just spend the whole day on the sundeck by the river reading a book. And we even have our own jungle style spa. We have built an Indian sweat hut for a nice detoxing experience. First you heat up until you start to sweat heavily, than you simply cool off in the river. Great for blood circulation and the immune system. But even more important: a great way to revive. More active visitors love to hike up the river. Further up on the mountain there is a bigger waterfall that is not reachable by road. You’ll have this magnificent place all to yourself! ... more   less
