A small secluded inn perched at the head of the beautiful Roseau River Valley. Comfortable, charming rooms overlooking gardens, mountains, waterfalls and pristine rainforest wilderness.

Wander through four acres of nurtured trails criss-crossed with hot and cold mineral streams and wind along the contours of the earth leading from themed glades of intense collections of Bromeliads, Begonias, Gingers, Aroids, Ferns and Musaceae, as well as local medicinal herbs and indigenous orchids. Frogs and other creatures live contentedly on the grounds with 30 kinds of bird and 19 species of butterfly.

Relax in the Rainforest Restaurant while dining on fresh caught fish, exotic fruits and abundant vegetables from the endless bounty of Dominica's organic gardens, sumptuously prepared Creole style.

Our spa includes four natural hot mineral pools rich in iron and offer various massage therapies including physiotherapy, reflexology and aqua massage by Veechi.

Our Butterfly Boutique offers a rich variety of Dominican arts and crafts which reflect Dominica's diverse African, Amerindian and European heritage. These include mahogany and coubari wood carvings, T-shirts, books, hand-stitched quilts, dollies, coffee, pepper sauce and spices.

For a very special holiday, a small, intimate wedding, a grand adventure or a focus on health and wellness --
Papillote Wilderness Retreat on Dominica, the Nature Island of the Caribbean.

What to expect: Papillote is a simple but special place in tune with island life. Our rooms have private bathroom facilities, hot running water, electricity and comfortable beds, but our rooms are not equipped with television or phones. We do have wireless internet access. Our cool mountain breezes make air-conditioning unnecessary and a 24 hour phone is available at the reception area.
