If you thought last year’s slate of new hotels in the Caribbean was impressive, you’re in for quite the treat in 2019.
The region is welcoming a remarkably diverse collection of hotels and resorts this year, from luxury small-island boutiques to gleaming new all-inclusives.
The biggest star for 2019? What seems to be the Caribbean’s newest hotel hotspot, Dominica, which has three hotels on this list (along with a signfiicant renovation of a fourth hotel, the Fort Young)— sending a big message to the travel world a little more than a year after last year’s storms.
We’ve put together a list of our favorite new debuts for 2019, including some properties that launched at the very end of 2018 and others that are coming on stream in the months ahead.
Where will you be checking in next?
Cabrits Resort Kempinski Dominica Easily the most exciting new property set to open in 2019, this will be Kempinski’s first hotel in the English-speaking Caribbean, following its 2017 debut of the spectacular Gran Hotel Manzana in Havana. The new Dominica hotel, which will be set outside Portsmouth on the northern tip of the island, will have 160 rooms, a spa and sweeping gardens, among other amenities. Another reason to be excited? It’s the latest project from Range Developments, responsible for the stunning Park Hyatt St Kitts.
