Guy Harvey Outpost Resorts adds hotel in Caribbean


Dominica’s Fort Young Hotel joined the Expedition Collection of Guy Harvey Outpost Resorts.

A recipient of Trip Advisor’s “Award of Excellence,” the historic hotel in Dominica’s capital, Roseau, becomes the seventh member of the Expedition Collection of Guy Harvey’s growing Outpost system, which covers Florida, the Caribbean, Mexico and the Galapagos Islands.

Nestled on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea and cradled by Dominica’s mountainous landscape, Fort Young’s unique architecture and history provide a combination of old world charm and modern amenities, the company said.

The hotel, which features 71 guest rooms and suites, also offers guests diving, eco-trekking over rivers, valleys and mountains and a range of on-the-water adventure activities, including river tubing and expedition kayaking.

“Dominica is known as the ‘Nature Island’ for good reason,” Guy Harvey Outpost Resorts president Mark Ellert said in a statement. “Having an Outpost here is a strategic complement to our presence in the Galapagos. The ecosystem here is equally unique in its natural diversity, all-around adventure and spectacular diving. Like the Galapagos, the waters around Dominica are protected marine reserve areas.”

The company said scuba diver Neal Watson, recently named Outpost director of dive operations, spearheaded the new affiliation.

“Dominica offers breathtaking experiences of every kind — from walls to reefs, encounters with sperm whales and dolphins, to swimming through the bubbles of underwater volcanic fissures,” Watson said. “All of this comes with practically unlimited visibility that makes for remarkable underwater photography.”
