Once a wooden fort built by the French in 1720, the Fort Young Hotel is now a 4 star hotel nestled in north eastern Dominica. With its oceanfront setting and private jetty, this is a scuba diver’s dream. From the sundeck, guests can watch speedboats collecting divers from the jetty, and sunsets over the Caribbean Sea. With its swimming pool, spa and fully equipped gym, this hotel is a haven of relaxation.
The spa offers Swedish, Sports and Thereperutic massage, as well as reflexology and reiki to maximise your relaxation on Dominica.
71 standard oceanview, oceanfront and deluxe oceanfront rooms and one oceanfront suite make up the hotel’s accommodation, which are simple and colourfully decorated with tiled floors, whitewashed walls and wooden accents. Each room has a private bathroom, balcony, wireless internet access, cable TV, a writing desk, robes, fans and air conditioning.
Dominica is a lush, wild island full of waterfalls, rainforests and stunning inland pools, all lined by sandy beaches and the sparkling Caribbean sea. The Fort Young Hotel arranges excursions all over the island, from trekking to the largest boiling lake in the world, witnessing twin waterfalls or strolling to calm jungle pools for freshwater swimming. Scuba diving in the Scottshead Soufriere Marine Reserve is not to be missed, filled with hundreds of varieties of coral, fish, seahorses, turtles and more. The hotel itself also hosts a swimming pool with panoramic views, a Jacuzzi, spa and dive shop.
The two restaurants at the Fort Young hotel serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a focus on fresh, locally-grown produce. Start your day with a freshly squeezed fruit juice and full breakfast, tuck into lunch on the verandah, and enjoy Creole BBQs or exquisite surf and turf for dinner. No-one goes hungry here. There are also two cocktail lounges and a snack bar for lighter meals.
