Fort Young is regarded as the most established hotel on the island, with an attractive location and good facilities.
The Fort Young Hotel is built on the site of the original French fort, dating back to 1720. The Fort Young Hotel is located on the edge of the capital, Roseau, directly facing the waterfront. The international airport at Melville Hall is a scenic cross-island transfer of 70 minutes. The Ferry Terminal with boats from the neighbouring French islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique, as well as St Lucia, is 3 minutes by taxi or a 5-minute walk.
Fort Young has 71 rooms, all with en suite bathroom.
We particularly suggest the oceanfront rooms and suites for their extra space, style and location.
The hotels’ activities desk can easily arrange a selection of eco-adventures including whale & dolphin watching, hiking tours, ranging from the gentle to the demanding!
Sea swimming roped off area accessed by steps from the jetty.
Car hire is suggested as this will really allow you to discover the island, and particularly visiting the wild Atlantic coast and Carib Reserve. Roseau, the capital, has a ramshackle charm and offers several restaurant options. It is easy to explore with its lively fruit and vegetable market, cobbled streets and rather colourful, frequently crumbling, French- Creole-influenced buildings.
Fort Young is regarded as the most established hotel on the island, with attractive location and good facilities with a great sense of history . The older rooms in the original section of the hotel are perfectly adequate, but for greater comfort, go for the newer, larger ocean front with the waves literally lapping below you – plus good views of a luxury cruise ships that will berth just in front of the hotel several days weekly. During these few hours, the island is almost busy and many clients make the waterfront bar at the Fort Young their choice to sample a local rum punch.
Dominica attracts those who are independent, adventurous and curious, and offers a very different experience to the usual sun and sand holiday offered by the more developed islands. The pleasures here are simple, relaxed and easy going; It is called the Nature island, with the focus on mountains, rivers, volcanoes and forests. It is not the place for the self-important and ultra-demanding shopaholics, although the Colombian Emerald shop within the hotel can be awfully tempting. It is one of the largest islands in the Caribbean, and least populated. Dominicans tend to also live longer which might be a testimony to their diet or their deliberate slow-paced lifestyle.
