marriotPrime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has revealed plans of his government to have a Marriott Hotels & Resorts constructed in the north of the island.

He said at the Toucari Village feast on Sunday that negotiations are underway on the matter.

“The Marriott will also want to have a presence in the north of Dominica,” Skerrit said. “There are still negotiations taking place, so we continue to pray that those negotiations will be successful. So that not only Kempinski will be here and Hilton, but we will also have a Mariott Hotel in Dominica.”

The Prime Minister noted that great things are in store for the country.

A 160-room Cabrits Resort Kempinski is presently being constructed in the north of the island. It was also announced last year that Hilton Worldwide will be developing Tranquility Beach Resort in Salisbury. Both are being constructed under the island’s citizenship by investment program.

Marriott Hotels & Resorts is Marriott International’s flagship brand of full-service hotels and resorts. The company, based in Washington D.C., is repeatedly included on the Forbes Best Companies to Work for list, and was voted the fourth best company to work for in the UK by The Times in 2009.

As of September 2013, there were 505 hotels and resorts operating under the brand. The loyalty program is called Marriott Rewards.
