IHG Hotels & Resorts (IHG) will soon introduce the new InterContinental Hotels & Resorts property on the island of Dominica. A conversion and renovation of an existing spacious resort, InterContinental Dominica Cabrits Resort & Spa will mark the brand’s third Caribbean resort hotel upon its planned spring 2023 reopening. Located along Douglas Bay on the island’s northwest side, the 151-room InterContinental Dominica Cabrits Resort & Spa will offer a unique and luxurious stay experience to travellers seeking to unwind, seclude and discover the island’s natural beauty.
The resort’s four outdoor pools, expansive spa, fitness center and beach access provide a relaxing tropical getaway, while its 8,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space and onsite business center accommodate corporate events and blended travel. Additionally, four on-property restaurants and beach and swim-up pool bars will provide refreshment for guests following a day exploring nearby Cabrits National Park or Dominica’s various hot springs, waterfalls and canyons.
Alex Kuhl, Vice President, Development Lifestyle, Luxury, & Premium Brands, IHG Hotels & Resorts, said: “We’re pleased to collaborate with Range Developments and local government leaders to expand our presence in the Caribbean and introduce our latest IHG-branded resort property within an emerging travel hot spot. The alignment of the natural wonder of Dominica and the inspiring design, authentic experience and personalized service that define InterContinental Hotels & Resorts will undoubtedly make this property a must-visit destination for local and global visitors and a model for resorts throughout the region.”
Adjacent to the majestic Cabrits National Park and overlooking the Caribbean Sea, the resort guarantees peace and quiet during your stay. The resort is only a short distance away from some of the most breathtaking natural sights on the island including hot springs, waterfalls, rivers and canyons.
A variety of plants, animals and bird species call Dominica home, including iguanas, sea turtles, the endangered crapaud frog, 320 species of reef fish, the endemic Imperial parrot and sperm whales. In addition, more than 1,000 species of flowering plants can be found on the island, including 74 species of orchid and 200 ferns. And just 15 minutes off the coast lie deep drop-offs. That means big fishing. Marlin, sailfish, yellowfin skipjack, tarpon, wahoo, dorado, mackerel—these waters are a sports fisherman’s dream. Imagine, just minutes after boarding a charter, you could be pulling in the biggest fish of your life.
Dominica’s extensive natural park system includes three national parks, two forest reserves and the Syndicate Parrot Reserve. The Morne Trois Pitons National Park has been recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The island is also home to the world’s second-largest hot spring, cascading waterfalls, breathtaking beaches ranging from sugar-white to black volcanic sand and 365 rivers, one for each day of the year.
IHG Hotels & Resorts will lead the resort’s renovations alongside owner Range Developments, a hospitality investment and development company with more than a decade of experience serving the eastern Caribbean. Beyond InterContinental Dominica Cabrits Resort & Spa, Range Developments also is developing two IHG-branded resorts in Grenada—Six Senses La Sagesse (projected to open in fourth quarter 2023) and InterContinental Resort La Sagesse (projected to open in first quarter 2025).
