Nature’s PlaygroundFound between Guadeloupe and Martinique, the lush, unspoiled island of Dominica is the Caribbean’s hidden gem. Unexposed to mass tourism, the island attracts both eco-adventurers and those simply wishing to disconnect from everyday life. Surrounded by Cabrits National Park, Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski Dominica has been designed to preserve the natural balance between land and the sea, whilst ensuring a modern contemporary guest experience.
Dominica is the land of a variety of flora and fauna, including many rare plants, animals and bird species. The island is protected by an extensive natural park system that encompasses three national parks, two forest reserves and the Syndicate Parrot Reserve. Adventure seekers can enjoy eco-trekking on countless hiking trails, bird watching or simply observing wildlife in their natural surroundings.
Dominica is additionally home to the world’s second-largest hot spring and features 365 rivers, one for each day of the year, as well as cascading waterfalls and, of course, breath-taking beaches, ranging from sugar-white to black volcanic sand. With ample coastlines and coral reefs, Dominica also offers world-class diving and snorkelling for underwater adventures that feel out of this world.
