Hilton Worldwide Debuts in Dominica with Addition of Tranquility Beach Resort to Curio – A Collection by Hilton™
Resort Welcomes Visitors to the Pristine Natural Beauty of Commonwealth of Dominica on the Caribbean Coast
MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Worldwide (NYSE: HLT) today announced that the Tranquility Beach Resort Dominica will join Curio - A Collection by Hilton, a global set of remarkable hotels hand-picked for their distinctive character and personality, appealing to passionate travelers seeking local discovery. The Tranquility Beach Resort Dominica, Curio Collection by Hilton, is expected to open in 2018.
The property will encompass a gated community of 60 one- or two-bedroom villa suites built in 15 new buildings along the Dominica coastline, accessible by a private beach path and surrounded by the luscious greenery of the country's indigenous forest. It will include a pool, two 1,200 square-foot meeting and event spaces, a wellness center and gym.
"We want to create a hotel destination that highlights Dominica's breathtaking scenery and dedication to preserving the immensely rich landscape," said Ian Edwards, Sunstone Inc., a Corporation of the Commonwealth of Dominica.
The Tranquility Beach Resort Dominica will be perched along the shores of Salisbury on the west coast of the island, which is known for its natural surroundings, creole cuisine and dive sites of coral reefs and crystal-clear waters.
"The new-build will echo the region's natural setting and provide guests with unmatched views of the Caribbean Sea," said Neil Freeman, partner, Sunstone Inc.
Dubbed "The Nature Island of the Caribbean", Dominica is a rugged landscape of blue-green slopes, waterfalls, and volcanic mountain peaks covered in tropical rain forests rising almost 5,000 ft. The island is home to one of the largest boiling lakes in the world at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Morne Trois Pitons National Park, just a short drive from Salisbury.
"When considering properties for the Curio brand, we consider the interesting places travelers want to visit and how they want to experience them," said Dianna Vaughan, global head, Curio - A Collection by Hilton. "In that regard, the Tranquility Beach Resort Dominica will be a perfect marriage of a remarkable location with a connection to the identity, people, culture and energy of the area."
