The iconic European hotelier Kempinski Hotels will be expanding its footprint in the Americas soon, opening a new luxury property on the Caribbean island of Dominica.
The property — dubbed the Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski Dominica — will make its debut on October 14, 2019. What this means is that one of Europe’s oldest luxury hotel groups will be bringing its rich history of personal service to a new destination in the Western Hemisphere. It will also mark Kempinski’s second Caribbean venture and Dominica’s first five-star resort.
“Bringing this project to fruition is another remarkable milestone for Kempinski Hotels,” says Michael Schoonewagen, General Manager, Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski Dominica. “We are especially proud of this property because it will give travellers the chance to experience Dominica like never before by bringing together the timeless opulence of Kempinski with the destination’s pristine, untouched landscape to create a transcendent experience where luxury meets nature.”
More about Dominica
Dominica, for the unfamiliar, is an island nestled between Guadeloupe and Martinique, beloved by visitors for its beautiful and unspoiled landscapes.
Dominica also has a richly-deserved reputation as the Caribbean’s best-kept secret, secluded as it has been for many years from mass tourism. This destination is one better known for eco-adventures, attracting visitors who wish to unplug from the rigors of normal life.
The new resort there will be surrounded by Cabrits National Park, and it will feature an unobtrusive design that both honors and preserves the natural beauty and local ecosystem of the unexplored volcanic island. The sort is also committed to protecting the authenticity of the pristine island for future generations, offering guest experiences that strike a respectful balance between land and sea.
Dominica is also home to the world’s second-largest hot spring, and it features 365 rivers, one for each day of the year, as well as cascading waterfalls and, of course, breathtaking beaches, ranging from sugar-white to black volcanic sand. With ample coastlines and coral reefs, Dominica also offers world-class diving and snorkelling for underwater adventures that feel out of this world.
More about the Cabrits Resort and Spa Kempinski
The new resort will boast 151 guestrooms and suites, all of which will be luxurious in nature, ranging from deluxe and superior rooms with mountain or ocean views, to more spacious suites and two-bedroom duplexes or villas.
The design of the property has been inspired by the island’s natural beauty, with the property featuring a soothing palette of coastal colors, detailed wood accents and ample natural lighting, which ushers in the vast beauty from outdoors. Even with so much nature, guests will still find the modern conveniences of home, including flat-screen TV and complimentary wi-fi, as well as in-room espresso machines and luxurious bath amenities.
Finally, the ultimate Cabrits experience will be available through the 4,585 square-foot Presidential Villa, which features stunning ocean views, dedicated butler service, a private lobby entrance, two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a dining room, a private spa with sauna, and a large, oversized terrace for outdoor dining, which will come complete with a grill and private pool.
A private chef will be available upon request.
