Roseau, Dominica – (February 12, 2018) Principals of the Anichi Resort and Spa hosted Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and members of his Cabinet in a ground breaking ceremony for the 120 room property to be built in the northern town of Portsmouth. This boutique property will be operated by Trust Hospitality under the Autograph Collection Hotels brand of Marriott and is expected to open in late 2019.

 According to Alick Lawrence, CEO of Anichi Development, “This ground breaking ceremony is particularly relevant post Hurricane Maria, as it shows the resiliency of our people while instilling trust in the economic climate and hope in the tourism industry in Dominica.”

Mr. Brock Hochhalter represented Marriott at the proceedings, and Mr. Michael Register represented Trust Hospitality.

The project is funded from the real estate component of Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program. Thus far, three of the approved hospitality projects under the real estate component of the CBI program have begun construction. In addition to Anichi Resort and Spa, the Cabrits Resort Kempinski, Dominica with 160 rooms and the Jungle Bay Resorts and Spa with 120 rooms are both expected to begin welcoming guests in early 2019.
