European hotel brand Kempinski is expanding into the Americas with a new luxury property in Dominica. Slated for an Oct. 14 opening, the Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski will be Dominica’s first 5-star hotel on the island and the brand’s second in the Caribbean.
“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 travelers 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 resort features 151 guestrooms and suites, some boasting mountain vistas and others offering breathtaking views of the ocean.
Four dining concepts grace the hotel, including the Rumfire Bar, with indoor-outdoor seating. The restaurants serve a wide variety of palates, from Creole-inspired dishes to pan Asian-influenced cuisine.
The property will prove versatile with more than 8,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including beach, pool and lawn venues. A built-in events team makes sure every function goes off without a hitch. Learn more about the upcoming opening on the hotel’s website.
