Stayed here from March 17 to March 22. A beautiful new resort on the island. Staff was excellent, polite, went out of their way to make sure I was having a good visit. Breakfast buffet was very large. Rooms are first class. Pool area is the place to hang out. The beach is rather small due to past hurricanes. This resort is only four months old, but the company has been around for a long time. The rum fire bar upstairs has a very large selection of local and Caribbean rums, also other spirits. Wine selection is well rounded. Seems like every little detail of this resort has been well planned. Due to the virus issues abroad there were less than 20 guests. So I nearly had the place to myself. Hopefully they will get through the pandemic. Nest endorsement I can give is that I will be back for sure.

New luxury hotel. Great design. A shame there were not many guests, but only recently opened. This is a new high for this wonderful island. If you want luxury and a different Caribbean experience, this is highly recommended.

This hotel is so beautiful. It's view is magnificent and the staff are warm and welcoming. I met the manager Mr. Storey and he is very professional and friendly with the staff. the Food and Beverage manager on the other hand seems unprofessional when dealing with the staff. He seem bossy and doesn't know how to speak with the staff. All in all I had and amazing time.

This was our second trip to Dominica. There are not many reviews on Kempinski yet, so here are some details for you. We have flown to 12 different Caribbean islands so far, having visited some multiple times, and this resort makes it into our Top 5 stays. We stayed here for six nights the first week of February. We had the most gorgeous Executive Junior Ocean View Suite room. It was very spacious and had breathtaking views of the pool and ocean. We had very good daily maid service, nightly turndown service, and the small refrigerator in the room was kept stocked each day with bottled water. When booking your room, it is a little hard to tell which hotel room photos go with each room type, so I have attached some for you of this room type. The entire resort is beautifully designed. There are beautiful pools of water and fountains everywhere. They are still building onto portions of the resort. We saw construction workers walking around during the week, but we never heard any noise from it at all. We could see that they were still building onto the resort pier because they had it blocked off, not allowing guests to walk down it yet. They are building a water sports area by the beach. They are building a resort shop that wasn’t open yet, and there is one restaurant that is not open yet. When walking around, we saw a huge building that housed the kid’s club. We did not go in, but it looked super nice and had a great outdoor play area as well. We did not go to the spa, but it looked unique having deck type walkways going from hut to hut around the spa area. There are currently two restaurants open, although only one of them would be open at a time. In addition, you could also order from a tapas menu at the main bar. The restaurant by the pool, Kweyol, is open for lunch and was open two nights during the week for dinner. One night offered a special menu where you got a soup and salad, choice of a few different entrée options, and choice of a couple of dessert options all for one price. The second night was a themed buffet dinner featuring local dishes, and there was a steel drum band for entertainment. It was nice to have these two dinner options during the week because the other restaurant, Cabrits Market, had the same menu for dinner the entire week, although I have to say there was a wide variety of dishes to choose from. Cabrits Market is located closer to the reception area. It was open for breakfast and dinner. The buffet breakfast that is included with your room stay has everything you could ask for – freshly prepared egg menu as ordered, freshly prepared pancakes and waffle station along with toppings as ordered, freshly squeezed juices, fresh fruit, meats, breads, cheeses, and a yogurt/cereal station. We enjoyed this station because it had all the toppings you could think of and more to make your own breakfast yogurt with different types/flavors of yogurt, muesli, oatmeal, milks to choose from. All the workers we met were very friendly and would take the time to ask your name and where you are from and start conversations with guests to get to know them better. The people of Dominica are very kind. The main pool is beautifully designed. It appears they made the pool to resemble the ocean having zero entry into it with brown tiles turning into blue tiles a few steps in. It is really large, and you would have to have a ton of people in it at the same time to feel crowded. It was well maintained as every single morning there was a crew in the pool cleaning it. We spent our time in the ocean while SCUBA diving, so we did not swim at the resort. The sandy beach around the ocean was narrow, but it did look like it would be a pretty nice swimmable beach because the water was calm in this bay and it did not appear to be extremely rocky. It looks like it is going to be a great beach for activities like kayaking when they open the water sports desk. If you have never been to Dominica, just be aware before you arrive of the drive from the airport to the resort. It’s almost an hour long through narrow, winding, mountainous roads. I was prepared and took a motion sickness pill beforehand. We met a lady who had gotten car sick on the way to the resort and was dreading the ride back to the airport, so I shared my medicine with her. I had a difficult time trying to research, find, and set up ahead of time transportation (airport transfers and tours), so my best tip to you is that we used Master Taxi and Tours four different days while on the island and had good experiences each time. They were very professional, and you’ll find that they have very reasonable rates when getting a quote. TripAdvisor will not allow me to give you their contact info here, so send me a message if you want it.

Today (Sunday) my husband, me and a friend enjoyed an outstanding buffet lunch at the Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski Dominica. We had a cocktail before lunch sitting comfortably enjoying the live music which was a perfect accompaniment. The buffet lunch was excellent as the choices were extensive and everything delicious. The staff were very attentive without being intrusive. A stunning view from our table of both the sea and the mountains. Not cheap but very good value for money.
