IHG signs InterContinental resort on Dominica island

IHG Hotels & Resorts has signed a new InterContinental Hotels & Resorts property on the island of Dominica. A conversion and renovation of an existing resort, InterContinental Dominica Cabrits Resort & Spa will mark the brand’s third Caribbean resort hotel upon its planned spring reopening.

Located along Douglas Bay on the island’s northwest side, the 151-room resort will offer four outdoor pools, a spa, a fitness center, a business center and beach access, as well as 8,500 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor meeting space, four on-property restaurants and beach and swim-up pool bars.

IHG will lead the resort’s renovations alongside owner Range Developments, a hospitality investment and development company with more than a decade of experience serving the eastern Caribbean. Beyond this property, Range Developments also is developing two IHG-branded resorts in Grenada, Six Senses La Sagesse (projected to open in the fourth quarter) and InterContinental Resort La Sagesse (projected to open in Q1 2025).

“We’re pleased to collaborate with Range Developments and local government leaders to expand our presence in the Caribbean and introduce our latest IHG-branded resort property within an emerging travel hot spot,” said Alex Kuhl, VP, development lifestyle, luxury & premium brands, IHG Hotels & Resorts. “The alignment of the natural wonder of Dominica and the inspiring design, authentic experience and personalized service that define InterContinental Hotels & Resorts will undoubtedly make this property a must-visit destination for local and global visitors and a model for resorts throughout the region.”

Mohammed Asaria, managing director, Range Developments, added, “InterContinental Hotels & Resorts has established an unparalleled legacy in the luxury hospitality space, and one that represents an ideal fit for travelers who take both a sense of curiosity and expectations for a memorable stay with them to Dominica. InterContinental Dominica Cabrits Resort & Spa will offer experiences that suit play, adventure and relaxation, and we look forward to extending our relationship with IHG to bring this stunning property to life.”
