Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort, a landmark waterfront hotel and dive resort in Dominica, is debuting 60 new rooms, named the Fort Collection. The brand-new Fort Rooms are part of Fort Young’s expansion and enhancement plan, and are concurrent with the seaside resort’s 30th-anniversary celebration. Located in the newly restored historical Fort section of the property, the new rooms are available for booking now, with guests able to stay as early as mid-October 2020. The addition of these new accommodations brings the hotel’s total room count to 100.
The Fort Collection includes:
- Fort Mountain View: These 28 rooms offer either two doubles or one king-sized bed, with balconies facing the mountains.
- Fort Ocean View: These 32 large and well-appointed rooms offer either two doubles or one king-sized bed, with balconies overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
This resort’s Fort section will also include a number of new enhancements and amenities. In addition to the new Fort Rooms, in 2020 the hotel will open a fitness center with eco-friendly equipment, a business center, a new bar and lounge, a 200-seat conference room, a 250-seat sun deck for weddings and other events and three new meeting rooms. The hotel will also refresh its 40 existing Oceanfront Rooms with upgraded furnishings, bathrooms and amenities.
Following Hurricane Maria in 2017, Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort launched several property enhancements, including the addition of Jacko’s, a poolside bar; an expanded boardwalk with waterfront shops and Warner’s Bar; a relaunched Palisades Restaurant; and a new dive operation, Fort Young Dive, which runs daily dives departing directly from the hotel’s shores.
Situated on the waterfront, Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort is the island's only downtown hotel, affording guests proximity to the island’s vibrant culture, cuisine, activities and top attractions like Trafalgar Falls, Middleham Falls, Freshwater Lake, segments of the Waitukubuli National Trail and diving.
