The Caribbean island where nature is king
Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski Dominica
Discover your Caribbean paradise at this gorgeous resort, where a treehouse-style spa and gorgeous ocean views are only two of the many wonders you'll experience.
Old world charm meets contemporary style in the waterfront Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort – something of a Dominican stalwart.
Boiling Lake, found on the Caribbean island of Dominica, is a flooded fumarole from a volcano - the second largest of its kind in the whole world. Measuring a whopping 200 feet wide, the lake is shrouded with vapour and the surface of the water furiously bubbles as the molten magma brings it to the boil below the surface. Breathtaking, beautiful, and not to be missed, Boiling Lake is a true natural gem.
The hike to Boiling Lake is both intense and rewarding. It’s best to hire a guide to lead you on your trail - not only for safety and supervision, but for information. Your hiking guide should be able to provide you with all the fascinating details you need about the Boiling Lake and the flora and fauna surrounding it.
Papillote Tropical Gardens
Papillote Tropical Gardens are a feast for the senses with a cornucopia of bright and fragrant plants spread over 10 lush acres. Budding botanists and full-blown nature obsessives will be able to lose themselves in the exotic trees, shrubs, and blossoms - from bamboo to bromeliads and begonias.
It’s not just thriving and colourful plantlife that visitors at the Papillote Tropical Gardens have the pleasure of witnessing. You will also have the chance to encounter vibrant birds, butterflies, frogs and lizards. Alternatively grab a bite to eat at the Rainforest Restaurant or soak in the natural hot pool.
Poz Restaurant & Bar
Kick back and relax at Poz Restaurant & Bar at Calibishie Gardens, which is named after the owner’s ‘poz-itivity’. Welcoming and ambient, you’re invited to unwind over a long meal of Cajun, Creole, and Caribbean fare. Dive into a hearty bowl of callaloo soup, crank up the heat with curry served with rice and peas, ensure you stop to sample some super-fresh seafood, or simply opt for a refreshing fruit juice or cocktail.
There is even a small swimming pool next to the open pavilion dining area, ideal for both adults and children to cool off before or after their meal. Absolutely one of the most popular restaurants on the island for its friendly service and lively atmosphere, we recommend you make a table reservation in advance to avoid waiting.
