Words are definitely not enough to fully describe Dominica and its very own charm and characteristics. Everyone that visits Trafalgar Falls or Titou Gorge for the first time will definitely agree. It is an island that needs to be experienced to see the variety of natural attractions and untouched nature. Kempinski Dominica nestles perfectly into the picture and is the ideal location to unwind and to start exploring the island. We look very much forward to showing guests our resort and this fabulous "Nature Island", said Russel Storey on his new role.
