Stay Between the Sea
and the Green
of the Caribbean’s Nature Island
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.
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.
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.
