A Kempinski resort on the island of Dominica will feature a 1,750sq m (18,836sq ft) spa designed and operated by Resense that takes full advantage of the Caribbean nation’s local volcanic mud.
The 160-bedroom Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski Dominica is due to open in Q4 of 2019, and is the brand’s first luxury hotel project in Dominica.
The Kempinski The Spa at the resort will include nine treatment villas, a spa with indoor and outdoor thermal areas, and a mud treatment zone using local volcanic mud.
The resort will be adjacent to the Cabrits National Park, in an area known for its ecotourism, natural beauty, waterfalls and hot springs.
“Celebrating Dominica’s unique landscape, the spa will be a primary element of the resort experience, with extensive facilities and inclusive wellness programmes and events that are combined with eco-tourism activities and excursions into one of the Caribbean’s most unspoilt destinations,” said Benjamin Robert, director of business development for Resense.
The spa will also include a local and organic treatment menu, gym, beauty area and indoor/outdoor relaxation area.
The hotel will be located on the north shore of the island near Portsmouth, and is being developed by Range Developments, which also developed the recently opened Park Hyatt St Kitts.
