Dominica, Dubai Firm Sign Agreement on Kempinski Hotel Project

Read the full article online at CJ.

On Feb 18 there were several posts going around Facebook, Dominica News Online and Dominica Vibes giving details about the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that was signed that morning.

Not every project becomes a reality in Dominica, so I'm inclined to say, Seeing is Believing. When I see the first hotel guests checking in to this ultra-luxury Kempinski hotel, then I will believe that it is a reality.
In the meanwhile I will stay clear of discussions regarding the Economic Citizenship program that seems to be the magnet to pull in these big investments. Good luck Dominica, it will be a blessing for tourism to get this hotel, but will I be able to see it???

Oh yeah, for your info, Dr Lennox Honychurch
has indicated that this hotel will come in the south-east corner of Douglas Bay at Tane-Tane.
