Europe’s oldest luxury hotel group, Kempinski Hotels, is proud to bring its rich heritage of attentive personal service and unparalleled hospitality to its newest destination in the Americas.
The long awaited Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski Dominica will open its doors to guests and exclusive clientele on 14 October, 2019. The resort will be Kempinski’s second Caribbean venture and Dominica’s first-ever 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.”
The Caribbean’s Nature Island
Nestled between Guadeloupe and Martinique, the beautiful, unspoiled volcanic island of Dominica is the Caribbean’s best-kept secret. The island attracts both eco-adventurers and persons wishing to disconnect from everyday life. The resort’s design preserves the natural beauty and authenticity of its environment, and is surrounded by Cabrits National Park – offering a balance between land and sea.
Room to Roam in Nature’s Playground
Christopher Columbus was at a loss for words when it came to describing Dominica to Queen Isabella of Spain. Such is the beauty of Dominica with its wooded mountains and lush rainforests. Today, the Nature Island’s dramatic peaks, ravines and adventure-filled terrain still leaves visitors speechless.
Among Dominica’s ample natural heritage are many rare plants, animals and birds, all protected by multiple national parks and forest reserves. Dominica is also home to the world’s second largest hot spring and features 365 rivers – one for each day of the year, cascading waterfalls, breath-taking beaches – from sugar-white to black volcanic sand, coral reefs and ample coastlines.
All of the resort’s 151 guestrooms and suites offer a lookout into the vast natural heritage that surrounds them. Inspired by the island’s natural beauty, each features a soothing palette of coastal colours, detailed wood accents and ample natural lighting, bringing the beauty of the outdoors in. All of this in addition to every modern convenience any guest may require – WiFi, Flat Screen, Espresso, etc.
For the ultimate Cabrits experience, the 4,585 sq ft Presidential Villa features stunning ocean views, dedicated butler service, a private lobby entrance, two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a dining room, a private spa room with sauna and a large, oversized terrace for outdoor dining, complete with a grill and private pool. A private chef is also available upon request.
A Feast for the Senses
Every detail of the guest experience at Cabrits Resort and Spa Kempinski has been carefully thought out to allow guests to feel, smell, see, hear and taste Dominica. The resort’s three distinctive restaurants feature both local and international cuisine as well as “farm-to-table” and “sea-to-table” dining.
The resort’s signature restaurant, Cabrits Market, provides an ambiance of vibrant colours and flavours indicative of a Creole market. An interactive buffet station features everything from Italian to barbeque to Creole-themed dinner and opulent brunch.
The Kweyol Beach Café offers a tasty mix of Creole dishes, international favourites and home-made ice cream flavours such as coconut. Bonsai serves Pan-Asian cuisine, offering a flavourful journey across Asia with sushi, sashimi, satays, Thai curries, wok-sautéed dishes and more.
With both indoor and outdoor seating, the Rumfire Bar serves as the perfect place to end the day, watching the sun set while sipping an expertly created cocktail or enjoying a fine cigar.
Rounding out the resort’s sensorial experiences is the 18,000 sq ft Kempinski Spa. Guests may select from indoor and outdoor wellness experiences, bringing themselves closer to nature and creating a connection with the island’s unique ecosystem. The spa’s comprehensive menu includes treatments inspired by the local culture and sense of place.
