Dominica’s Coulibri Ridge Resort Announces Official Opening Date
The Caribbean’s newest sustainable resort, Coulibri Ridge in Dominica will officially open on October 22.
The brainchild of Quebec-born entrepreneur Daniel Langlois, the 285-acre, fully off-the-grid luxury resort features 14 spacious, residential-style suites equipped with full kitchens and boasts an ideal location atop a mountain ridge in the south of Dominica, near the village of Soufrière.
The new property uses solar energy as the main power source along with specially designed wind turbines to have minimal impact on the local flora and fauna. Rainwater is also collected through Coulibri Ridge’s unique roof design and purified by UV light and copper ionization before being routed to guest suites and chlorine-free swimming pools.
Additionally, drains and gutters collect rainwater and gray water can be used to irrigate the resort’s gardens and a small farm due to open in 2023.
As for accommodation, highlights include the Seaview Studio offering 600 square feet of indoor space and a 350-foot terrace with a sofa, hanging chair and two lounge chairs as well as the Morne Fou Loft with 950 square feet of interior space and a 400 -square foot sea view terrace.
Meanwhile, the luxurious Sky Penthouse Duplexes offer 1,000 square feet of indoor space and two terraces, one overlooking the sea, Martinique and the Morne Fou mountain peak, and another overlooking the Sulfur Spring valley.
Four Sky Penthouses even feature outdoor rain showers while three have private infinity pools with spectacular views.
All guests can also enjoy two large infinity pools in addition to a gym, yoga pavilion, spa facilities for private treatments, and two dining areas at Mesa and Vista. Other amenities include high-speed Wi-Fi available throughout the resort and two ocean-view meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 14 people. Additionally, staff members will also take guests to explore the resort’s extensive grounds, including tropical gardens, orchard, and 18th-century estate ruins. Off-grid does not necessarily mean offline.
The resort is celebrating with a grand opening package available for guests staying seven nights by paying just five from November 1 through December 14, 2022. Rates start at $700 per night based on double occupancy.
