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.
Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
