InterContinental Hotels & Resorts to take over Cabrits Resort & Spa from Kempinski, deems Dominica new “hotspot”

Cabrits Resort & Spa

Cabrits Resort & Spa is set to change management in March of this year, following a periodical review.

The Range Development-owned facility will be transitioning from the direction of Kempinski Hospitality to the auspices of InterContinental Hotels & Resorts

Managing Director of Range Developments, Mohammed Asaria, remarked, “InterContinental Hotels & Resorts has established an unparalleled legacy in the luxury hospitality space, and one that represents an ideal fit for travelers who take both a sense of curiosity and expectations for a memorable stay with them to Dominica.”

The resort and spa, which boasts 151 rooms, four outdoor pools, an expansive spa, fitness center, and onsite business accommodations, amongst other amenities, will be undergoing renovations and upgrades in preparation for the new direction.

Meantime, reports are that all Dominican employees will be allowed to keep their jobs through the change of management.

Branded as “the world’s first and largest international luxury hotel brand”,  to date, 19 of InterContinental Hotel &Resorts’ 208 open global properties are based across South and Central America, as well as Mexico and the Caribbean.

Additionally, four regional hotels are among the 84 properties, in total, under development by the company.

Alex Kuhl, Vice President, Development Lifestyle, Luxury, & Premium Brands, IHG Hotels & Resorts, expressed his hopes for the collaboration: “We’re pleased to collaborate with Range Developments and local government leaders to expand our presence in the Caribbean and introduce our latest IHG-branded resort property within an emerging travel hot spot.”

    So kempinski is out, kempinski and mohammed always had their escape, get out of dominica plan anyway. The food was not all that, the bar closed early, with limited drink choices, the gift show was always closed, they turned off the air conditioner at the reception desk, the pool bar was always empty, there is no dominican in the senior management, higher paying position. There was a local dominican price for the room, which was never advertised or told to locals. But intercontinental, will be leaving in a few years too also,this property is on its way to become a motel 6 or a red roof inn. with NEP workers

      Indeed IHG is headquartered in the UK. Major shareholders are city institutions, Hedgefonds and insurance companies. The Chinese government might hold shares but could not be described as major shareholder. Infact they haven’t declared any major holding in this company.
