Built to protect the island, Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort has always commanded a position like no other. Located in Roseau, Dominica’s capital and only “downtown,” it sits in the main marina with the ferry port and market just a minute’s walk from its entrance. Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort has ideal exposure to Dominica’s vibrant culture, delicious cuisine, and activity in the marina, yet affords its guests a luxurious sense of seclusion. From your room’s balcony, the sights and sounds of the capital vanish, replaced by the gentle lapping of waves and endless expanse of the sea and sky.

The opportunities for exploration around Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort, and throughout the Nature Island, are limitless. Whether you scour Dominica’s volcanic shallows for colourful fish or Roseau’s vibrant Saturday Farmer’s Market for fresh local fruit, the island offers rich rewards for every explorer. Some guests spend all day unearthing the natural and cultural wonders of Dominica and unwind with delicious fare, live music and the comforts of home away from home by night.


Island Hopping

Once you’ve arrived to the Nature Island, it’s likely you will not want to leave. Dominica offers ceaseless experiences and memories to be made; however, if you wish to island hop, Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort is a mere one minute walk from the ferry terminal. Here, you can board a 300 or 400 seat catamaran and travel just one hour amongst the islands of Guadeloupe, St. Lucia and Martinique. Our concierge is happy to arrange tickets and offer recommendations for what to do and see while visiting our neighbours.


Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort embraces a rich and soulful history that reinforces the hotel’s welcoming and homely ambiance. While the hotel first opened in 1964, the land upon which it sits dates back to 1699. Having evolved from a military fort to a central police station and, presently, a hotel, the land has been inundated with an undeniable sense of character; a colorful and cultural vibrancy that defines Fort Young Hotel.


Dominica is one of the most coveted destinations worldwide for diving; and, Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort just so happens to sit moments away from the island’s wide array of sites. Our dive concierge accommodates both beginners and deep sea thrill-seekers, offering matchless access to, as we say, the wonder of down under.
