The First-of-Its-Kind for the Caribbean’s Nature Island, the All-Inclusive, Island-Included Resort Will Give Guests An Immersive Dominica Experience, Inclusive of Unique City, Land and Sea Expeditions that Support the Community
Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort, the “Nature Island’s” landmark, waterfront hotel on the edge of Dominica’s capital, Roseau, has announced the introduction of the Caribbean’s first-ever “All-Inclusive, Island-Included” resort experience. Beyond the offerings of a traditional all-inclusive, like food and beverages, the All-Inclusive, Island-Included experience will give guests access to activities and offerings beyond the hotel — from a lionfish catching expedition, to hiking and exploring some of the island’s best attractions like Trafalgar Falls and Titou Gorge, to enjoying tropical beaches — providing an unrivaled, immersive and memorable Nature Island holiday.
Not only will guests enjoy city, land and/or sea adventures each and every day, but off-property island activities will also include a community touch point — whether it be a sweet treat or cocoa tea from a local restaurant or rum shop, a local arts and craft offering or a cultural experience. By involving independent tour providers and local food and beverage outlets, the new model will cater to guests while also supporting the community at large.
“Fort Young has always been a gateway to Dominica’s incredible sights and landmarks, so it was a natural evolution for us to introduce this All-Inclusive, Island-Included offering,” said Dinesh Kissoon, Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort’s general manager. “We wanted to offer travellers to Dominica a truly seamless, effortless and authentic way to experience the local culture, land and sea unlike ever before. Doing an all-inclusive with island included is a way of engaging our community and gives guests a more robust and immersive experience, creating a more sustainable and symbiotic environment.”

Upgrades are also available to experience even more of the island’s adventures, such as swimming with Dominica’s resident sperm whales, canyoning, night snorkelling, hiking to Boiling Lake, and exploring Kalinago Territory.

The resort is also offering three alternative packages: a breakfast, beverages and island-included package starting at US$286 per person per night (five-night minimum stay); a standard all-inclusive meal plan starting at US$255 per person per night (two-night minimum stay); and a breakfast and beverage plan for US$190 per person per night (two-night minimum stay).

Fort Young Hotel recently unveiled 26 fully refreshed Oceanfront Deluxe Rooms. Replete with panoramic seaside views, exceptionally stylish furnishings and a bright colour palette, the reimagined guestrooms are designed to make guests feel even more warmly welcomed while expressing Dominica’s vibrant spirit. These refurbished rooms are part of the resort’s new master plan that also calls for eight more rooms to be updated this autumn alongside the introduction of a brand-new waterfront spa, 24-hour gym 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.
