Dominica’s latest luxury eco-resort has opened over the festive season; Coulibri Ridge is a dramatic design, set on a hillside with spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea.
Coulibri Ridge has 14 rooms, ranging from studios to duplex suites, all of which have views of neighbouring Martinique and custom kitchens and recycled furnishings. Three of the suites have their own private plunge pools.
It is the latest addition to Dominica’s growing portfolio of luxury hotels, that includes Secret Bay, the Cabrits Kempinski and the Pagua Bay House, among others.
Coulibri Ridge is set on a 200-acre site, with two pools, two dining rooms, a spa, a yoga pavilion, a conference room and property-wide, complimentary Wi-Fi.
It’s the brainchild of Daniel Langlois, a Canadian software entrepreneur who became wealthy in film industry animation and special effects used in films like Jurassic Park.
The project has been in conception for several decades, with the idea of creating a self-sustainable, green resort. It is completely off the grid, using solar energy as its main source of power.
The opening of Coulibri Ridge is particularly well-timed, following the recent launch by American Airlines of the first-ever nonstop flights from the United States to Dominica.
