The Coulibri Ridge Resort is scheduled to open in doors this month, as the development of the resort comes to an end.
This new resort is part of the Government of Dominica’s commitment to building a Dynamic Dominica through sectors such as tourism.
According to the Minister for Tourism, International Transport and Maritime Initiatives, Hon. Denise Charles, the construction of the Coulibri Ridge Resort, along with six other new accommodation sites in Dominica “is expected to result in a total investment of approximately nine hundred and fifty million ($950,000,000) E.C dollars; create four hundred and seventy (470) construction jobs and create seven hundred and ninety-one (791) permanent jobs during operations of these accommodations.”
Located in Petit Coulibri in the Soufriere Constituency, Coulibri Ridge Resort is an intimate eco-resort with fourteen spacious air-conditioned studios and duplex suites, ranging in size from nine hundred and thirty square feet (86 m2) to one thousand, five hundred and fifty square feet (144 m2).
All the residential units have been built with large terraces with exceptional sea views of Martinique to the south and are equipped with custom kitchens and furnishings. Seven of the fourteen suites also have an additional north facing terrace offering views of the Sulphur Spring Valley; and of those seven, four have an outdoor shower garden and three have a private pool.
Conceived with the goal of achieving true sustainability, the resort was carefully researched and implemented to minimize impact on the environment, from the off-grid alternative power technologies to the methods of harvesting pure rainwater, filtered on site, collected in large underground cisterns and delivered via energy efficient systems throughout the resort. This falls in line with the Government’s goal of building the world’s first climate resilient nation.
Minister Charles, who is also Parliamentary Representative for the Soufriere Constituency, went on to say that “Dominica has exciting days ahead” adding that “this new property will take tourism in Dominica to the next level.
