Aptly named the “Nature Island” of the Caribbean, the lush and unspoilt island of Dominica overflows with natural romance and wonder for couples seeking a rejuvenating yet adventure-filled getaway.

With an exciting summer in full swing, Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort is thrilled to unveil 21 Oceanfront Deluxe Rooms, each thoughtfully designed by architect Michelle Leotaud of Apple + Iron. Replete with panoramic seaside views, exceptionally stylish furnishings and a bright color palette, the reimagined guestrooms are designed to make guests feel even more warmly welcomed while expressing Dominica’s vibrant spirit.
“We’re excited for guests to experience our new rooms and continue to make Fort Young Dominica’s premier hotel and dive resort on the waterfront in our capital city, Roseau,” said Dinesh Kissoon, the hotel’s general manager. “With more people traveling again, we aim to make Fort Young a safe and serene destination from which visitors can enjoy a much-needed tropical vacation or comfortably work remotely with endless adventures at their doorstep.”
The island’s lush, green foliage and blue ocean are captured in the pops of colour peppered throughout the rooms, from the art to the fabrics to the wall planters blooming with indigenous tropical plants. The use of greys and deep graphite were inspired by the island’s volcanic rock and dark sands while the addition of natural textures and materials reflect the pure beauty found throughout the “Nature Island.”
A nod to Dominica’s rich history, behind the headboards in each of the rooms is a dramatic vintage survey map of the island that dates back to 1773. Additionally, the redesigned rooms boast one-of-a-kind pieces by Dominican artist Shadrach Burton that embrace the island’s tropical flora as well as the prized national bird – the sisserou parrot – while integrating a variety of bold colours that reflect Roseau’s vitality.
Whether you come to completely disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, work remotely for an extended period of time amid an inspired island ambiance — or perhaps a combination of the two — our fully refreshed rooms offer the perfect gateway to your most dream-worthy Dominica getaway.
These refreshed rooms are part of the resort’s new master plan that also calls for 13 more rooms to be updated this summer alongside the introduction of brand-new waterfront spa and six all-new Oceanfront Junior Suites with en-suite bathrooms, kitchenettes and interconnecting rooms; 60 forthcoming Fort Rooms; a state-of-the-art fitness center featuring eco-friendly equipment; business center; new bar and lounge; 200-seat conference room; 250-seat sun deck for weddings and other events; art gallery, wine and rum cellar, gift shop, and three new meeting rooms.
