BUCKET LIST DESTINATION Stay Between the Sea and the Green of the Caribbean’s Nature Island A long a serene slip of Caribbean coastline sits Fort Young Hotel, a proud staple of Dominica’s heritage, enveloped by nature and the palpable vibrancy of its capital, Roseau. Built to protect Dominica, Fort Young Hotel has always commanded a position like no other. And, still today, the Caribbean retreat is a gateway to the island’s spirited culture, local cuisine and activity in the marina — all with a luxurious sense of seclusion. From your balcony, the sights and sounds of the capital vanish, replaced by the gentle lapping of waves and endless expanse of the sea and sky. Boundless Adventure Here, it’s evident that idyllic accommodations take center stage. But, when immersed in Dominica’s lush surroundings, these comforts become secondary to the rich and unspoiled terrain at your doorstep. From the neighboring French Quarter’s Saturday markets to exhilarating nearby adventures, including waterfall hikes, hot spring soaks, rainforest walks and world-class diving, Fort Young Hotel is a true catalyst for monumental experiences by both land and sea. Indulgent Amenities And, while the hotel’s peerless location and natural setting are amenities in and of themselves, there are likewise an array of luxuries to realize your reveries of a Caribbean getaway. Whether you wish to relax in the infinity pool and jacuzzi, indulge in an in-room massage, partake in a strengthening yoga class or embark upon a day of underwater adventure, a trip to Fort Young Hotel is fated to be both full and fulfilling. Remarkably, Fort Young Hotel partially reopened in January 2018 with a host of new offerings and services following Hurricane Maria, marking a major milestone for Dominica. With an expansion of core amenities and the addition of new experiences, guests are now able to experience Fort Young Hotel in all of its revived glory for a naturally enriched getaway.
