We are thrilled to announce that Fort Young Hotel has reopened its doors, allowing guests to come experience our prized location on the Caribbean coast amidst the Nature Island’s vibrant capital city, Roseau. By virtue of incredibly hard work and the abiding support from those both near and far, Fort Young Hotel now has 41 of 72 rooms available for booking.
We’ve completed the first phase of renovations and initial expansion with many of our core amenities, including the pool, waterfront Warner’s Bar, in-room spa services and one of the meeting facilities, currently open for guests to enjoy. Food and beverage service and the activities and diving concierge are also now fully operational.
New experiences at Fort Young Hotel include Jacko’s, a poolside bar, and an expanded boardwalk, which will now host guest check-ins while we work to complete our remaining renovations and expansion. A full reopening is expected for this October 2018.
“We’re extremely excited to welcome guests back to Fort Young to enjoy the beauty and hospitality of the Nature Island,” said Marvlyn James, Fort Young Hotel’s general manager. “We’re continuing to see increased interests from both past guests and new ones who are excited to visit Dominica. We currently have reservations from the U.S., Canada and across Europe, as well as the Caribbean. Our entire team is incredibly excited for the reopening and to exceed the expectations of our guests — whether families, couples, adventure travelers, groups or conference-goers — who are booked to stay with us over the coming months.”
How to Book
Guests interested in booking a stay at Fort Young Hotel can reserve dates immediately. Visitors can also book the “Voluntourism Package,” which includes five nights of accommodation, round-trip airport transfers, full breakfast daily, a tour of the island and three days of transportation to Segment three of the Waitukubuli National Trail: Bellevue Chopin to Watten Waven. With this package, guests will embark upon the challenging 12.8 km hike and do their part by clearing debris along the way so future travelers can, too, enjoy the trail’s bewildering beauty. Supplies will be provided. Package starts at $837 USD. To book, call 767-448-5000, email email@example.com or visit https://www.fortyounghotel.com/.
The reopening of Fort Young Hotel, which has long been a popular resort destination for divers, adventurers and business travelers from around the world, marks a major milestone for Dominica in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. While the island itself has undoubtedly proven its prowess in the months following the hurricane, we are proud to demonstrate the same strength that is so inherent to Fort Young Hotel’s history.
