A Guide To What’s New In The Caribbean

From hotel openings and fun ways to soak up the sun to the return of popular carnival festivals after a two-year hiatus, here’s an overview of the latest travel news out of The Caribbean.

Taking colour inspiration from the island’s Morne Trios Pitons; the Sisserou parrot and its Creole culture and Kalinago heritage, Dominica has launched a new brand identity complete with a new logo. The new brand is designed to better position Dominica as a competitive tourism destination.

“Dominica is frequently confused with the Dominican Republic so we needed to create a distinction in the mind of potential visitors,” said the Hon. Denise Charles, Minister of Tourism, International Transport and Maritime Initiatives.

Known for its natural, wellness, and adventure attributes, Dominica is showing signs of continued recovery in terms of visitor arrivals and cruise ship visits.

Colin Piper, CEO of Discover Dominica Authority, pointed out that the current cruise season has had 103 ports of call visits, a significant increase over 2019/20 with 85 calls.

Set among 200 acres, Coulibri Ridge is the newest property in the destination. The off-grid eco-resort features 14 units with large terraces with magnificent sea view of Martinique.

Also under construction are Anichi Resort and Spa, a 128-room property part of Marriott’s exclusive Autograph Collection and Tranquility Beach Resort – Curio – A Collection by Hilton, a luxury contemporary 73 room villa and condo suites resort, with an anticipated opening in 2023.
