An official release issued by Hilton Worldwide has announced that Hilton’s Curio brand will debut a hotel in Dominica and is expected to open in 2018.
The release went on to say:
“The property will encompass a gated community of 60 one- or two-bedroom villa suites built in 15 new buildings along the Dominica coastline, accessible by a private beach path and surrounded by the luscious greenery of the country’s indigenous forest. It will include a pool, two 1,200 square-foot meeting and event spaces, a wellness center and gym.
The Tranquility Beach Resort Dominica will be perched along the shores of Salisbury on the west coast of the island, which is known for its natural surroundings, creole cuisine and dive sites of coral reefs and crystal-clear waters.”
Dianna Vaughan is the global head of Hilton’s Curio brand. She said:
“When considering properties for the Curio brand, we consider the interesting places travelers want to visit and how they want to experience them. In that regard, the Tranquility Beach Resort Dominica will be a perfect marriage of a remarkable location with a connection to the identity, people, culture and energy of the area.”
Dominica will benefit from the marketing of the Hilton brand and the fact that guests of the Tranquility Beach Resort from 2018, will earn Hilton HHonors® Points and Miles for each night stayed at the hotel.
Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, reacting to the news indicated that “the hotel will be financed under the Citizenship by Investment Programme of the Commonwealth of Dominica.”
