Upscale, Up-Market Flagship Boutique Accommodation
Dominica is keenly interested in investment that will suit the island’s image and natural offering as the Nature Island. This is important as the foundation of the island’s tourism industry is its natural features and appeal to visitors. Our visitor satisfaction survey results list peace and tranquility, the island’s natural beauty, the availability of many soft adventures, and the lack of overcrowding as some of the many reasons why people choose Dominica. It is no wonder that the up market boutique type accommodation provides a complementary fit to the discerning visitor who chooses Dominica as his vacation experience.
Dominica’s definition of an up market boutique accommodation is simple. These are accommodations which embrace sustainable development, focus on green technology where possible, pay attention to the environment and construct in a manner which does not impose on the environment. The up market boutique accommodation focuses on personalized service to guests. Whilst we tend not to restrict the quantum of number of rooms for an up market accommodation, we believe that if the elements of the definition are used as a guide then the right number of rooms would be constructed.
We invite up market accommodation such as villas, resorts, cottages, guest houses and other type of accommodation. We note that the classification of accommodation keeps changing and therefore whilst we have made mention of a few, this is by no means exhaustive or limited to the aforementioned.
Dominica’s topography allows for up market accommodation to be constructed throughout the length and breadth of the island. We however, place emphasis on ensuring that all architectural plans conform to the requirement of the relevant agencies. With the extensive network of road and the continuous rehabilitation of the same it is easy to get around the island.
The Government of Dominica offers a very generous fiscal incentive package for investment in this area. These include the waiver of import duty on building materials, hotel equipment and furnishing, operational vehicle and a tax holiday on profits generated from the investment. We ask that you visit Dominica and explore the various opportunities throughout the island.
