The resort’s signature restaurant, Cabrits Market, provides an ambiance of vibrant colors and flavors meant to be indicative of a Creole market. The buffet stations include a variety of international fare, Italian, barbeque, as well as Creole-themed dinner and brunch.
The Kweyol Beach Café offers a mix of Creole dishes, international favorites and home-made ice cream flavors, such as coconut.
Bonsai serves Pan-Asian cuisine as an alternative to the resort’s main restaurant and beach bar. Bonsai offers sushi, sashimi, satays, Thai curries, wok-sautéed dishes and more.
With both indoor and outdoor seating, the Rumfire Bar serves as the place to end the day. The bar’s mixologist prepares both classic cocktails and original creations utilizing local Caribbean rums and dark spirits.
Dominica hosts a variety of flora and fauna, including rare plants, animals and bird species. The island is protected by an extensive natural park system that encompasses three national parks, two forest reserves and the Syndicate Parrot Reserve. Adventure seekers can enjoy eco-trekking on hiking trails, bird watching or observing wildlife in their natural surroundings.
Additionally, Dominica is home to the world’s second largest hot spring and features 365 rivers, cascading waterfalls and black-sand beaches. With ample coastlines and coral reefs, Dominica also offers diving and snorkeling for underwater adventures.
