Resense opening 5 star luxury spa in the Nature Isle of Dominica.


By Resense

Geneva, 18 September 2019 – After 4 years of research, detailed design and planning, global wellness company Resense is thrilled to be opening the new Kempinski The Spa at the Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski Dominica in October 2019.

This will be Resense’s second venture into the Americas where they are once again launching a groundbreaking luxury spa & wellness experience in the country.  Dominica, the nature isle of the Caribbean is known for its rich, volcanic soils; lush mountainous terrain and abundant clean water.  Unspoilt and unique, Dominicans live a balanced, healthy and active lifestyle and hence, Dominica is home to the highest number of centenarians in the world, second only to Canada.

Not only do people live long in Dominica, they live well.  Kempinski The Spa Cabrits has been carefully crafted to empower guests to fully immerse in the Dominican wellness experience.


The design approach required a very thoughtful and deft touch.  With views of the jungle and mountainous surrounds, the spa itself is a wellness journey through a sequence of Dominican cabanas, unobtrusive and respectful of their ecological surroundings.  Occupying 1,700 square metres (18,000 square feet), Kempinski The Spa has 5 single outdoor cabanas and 2 Dominican suites considerately placed around a central wellness garden featuring a variety of warming and cooling experiences including an outdoor vitality pool and a Mountain View Sauna.

Instilling a sense of fun with authentic and locally cognisant therapy, the ‘detoxifying mineral bathe’ in the wellness garden invites guests to enjoy the sulphuric mud, rich in essential minerals that both cleanse and reduce inflammation.  Two outdoor cabana suites complete with their own baths & private outdoor lounges offer unobstructed views of the jungle surrounds.

At Kempinski The Spa, wellbeing is personal.  Each and every experience is tailored to the guest to provide an uncomplicated and truly luxury experience which allows the guest to immerse and genuinely connect with their environment.  Hot stone massages utilise volcanic stones from the island, which has the highest concentration of dormant volcanoes in the world.  Scrubs, wraps and treatments have been created from the locally grown organic cocoa, coffee & aloe vera.  Tailored and effective anti-aging facials and treatments harness the regenerative power of local coconut oil.  Guests can relax before and after treatments in the quintessentially Dominican outdoor and indoor relaxation lounges.

Physical activity is a key component to achieving the Dominican sense of wellbeing.  The spa features a 24-hour gym equipped with the best from LifeFitness and a modern outdoor yoga sala where functional fitness training can also be performed.


The island of Dominica naturally enables people to live and be well.  Our Kempinski The Spa creates a unique yet flexible environment that empowers people to fulfil their individual sense of wellbeing utilising the restoring effects of the nature and lifestyle of this unspoilt destination.  — says Emma Darby, Chief Operating Officer - Resense. 

Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski Dominica is located in Douglas Bay on the northwest side of the island with panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea, it has 151 rooms and a number of restaurants offering ‘farm-to-table’ and ‘sea-to-table’ dining.  Activity abounds with onsite water sports, two tennis courts, four pools, a club tailored for children and multiple events spaces for unique and authentic retreats.
