Cabrits Resort Kempinski is a first real property object approved by the government of Dominica within its passport program. The project has a high potential since this is the only high-profile hotel in Dominica. The resort is located in Douglas Bay and surrounded by the Cabrits National Park. The opening is scheduled for the second quarter of 2019.

The developer responsible for the project already has a track record of several successful projects, among which is Park Hyatt St. Kitts. The hotel opened its doors on November 1, 2017, and is considered one of the best resorts in the Caribbean. Its annual yield is 5-6%.
