Volcanic stones, sulphuric mud, and locally grown aloe vera: Dominican wellness on offer at new Kempinski spa
By Jane Kitchen 01 Oct 2019
The spa is a wellness journey through a sequence of Dominican cabanas, designed to be unobtrusive and respectful of their ecological surroundings
After four years of research, detailed design and planning, global wellness company Resense will open 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. Dominica is known for its rich, volcanic soils; lush mountainous terrain and abundant clean water, and is also home to a large number of centenarians. Kempinski The Spa Cabrits has been crafted to empower guests to fully immerse in the Dominican wellness experience.

“The island of Dominica naturally enables people to live and be well,” said Emma Darby, COO of Resense. “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.”

With views of the jungle and mountainous surrounds, the spa itself is a wellness journey through a sequence of Dominican cabanas, designed to be unobtrusive and respectful of their ecological surroundings.

Occupying 1,700sq m (18,000sq ft), Kempinski The Spa has five single outdoor cabanas and two Dominican suites placed around a central wellness garden that features a variety of warming and cooling experiences, including an outdoor vitality pool and a mountain view sauna.

Designed to instill 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 and private outdoor lounges offer unobstructed views of the jungle surrounds.

Each experience is tailored to the guest to provide an uncomplicated luxury experience that allows the guest to immerse and connect with their environment.

Hot stone massages use 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 and aloe vera.

Tailored anti-ageing facials and treatments harness the regenerative power of local coconut oil. Guests can relax before and after treatments in the 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.

Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski Dominica is located in Douglas Bay on the northwest side of the island, with 151 bedrooms 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.
