Big news out of the Caribbean. Following the announcement of Kempinski's first resort in the Caribbean, the government of Dominica and Range Developments have revealed new details on the upcoming property. Today based in Geneva, Kempinski is Europe’s oldest luxury hotel group, with a portfolio of 73 five-star hotels in 30 countries.
To be called the Cabrits Resort Kempinski Dominica, the new resort will be located on Douglas Bay in Cabrits on the island’s north shore close to Portsmouth. Situated next to the Cabrits National Park, the resort will be surrounded by the natural beauty that Dominica is known for. Indeed, Dominica markets itself as the “Nature Island”-- with volcanic peaks, pristine rainforest, 365 rivers, waterfalls and hot springs. The island has a host of hiking trails and diving sites for adventure enthusiasts.
The Cabrits Resort Kempinski Dominica will have 101 contemporary-style rooms, and according to the official press release—the resort will be “designed to ensure a natural balance between the land and the sea.” What’s particularly interesting about the development is the “Citizen By Investment Program” offered by the Commonwealth of Dominica. Any investor that wants to purchase a share of the project ($220,000) is given citizenship of the country. This is the first time a development has been approved for this initiative.
