How to Have an Extraordinary Family Vacation at Fort Young Hotel

What makes a great family vacation? Endless activity and a stunning locale in which every member of the family feels fulfilled. In Dominica, Fort Young Hotel is that exact place. Here, there are boundless opportunities to experience the splendor of the Nature Island alongside loved ones of all ages. We would be honored to put together the perfect itinerary for you and yours, but before we do, gain some inspiration from just a few of our family activities below.

Rainforest Adventure with a Guide

Exploring Dominica’s lush rainforest is amongst the most eye-opening experiences on the island. Consider a guided nature hike to bring you and your family through the jungle on a bird watching tour to get a glimpse of Dominica’s avian paradise. This hike will take you deep into the rainforest to observe and educate yourself on the beautiful and rare birds which call the Nature Island home. Your kids will surely be amazed as the endemic Sisserou and Jaco parrots fly right above.

Snorkeling

No matter one’s age, snorkeling always proves to be a fun and surprising activity. And, of course, Dominica is perhaps the best place in the world to see the pristine world down under, teeming with untouched marine life and coral. Fort Young Hotel just so happens to sit moments from a wide array of popular snorkeling sites, so sign the family up for a day of underwater discovery at spots like Champagne Reef where volcanic bubbles transport you to a realm of marine enchantment.

Cannonball Kids Club

After a long few days of adventure and exploration, we believe parents deserve to treat themselves at Fort Young Hotel. Luckily, the Cannonball Kids Club is the perfect spot to bring the little ones for a day of activities, storytelling, crafts and group games. Which, of course, means you and yours can do whatever you so please—whether that means indulging in a massage at the Zemi Spa or sitting poolside with a cocktail in hand. At Fort Young Hotel, everyone earns a little pampering.
