The Government of Dominica and Vital Developers Limited have signed an agreement for the construction of a 5 Star Quality Eco-Resort under the Common Wealth of Dominica Citizenship By Investment (CBI) programme at Providence, Laudat in the Roseau Valley.
The ceremony took place yesterday at the Ministry of Finance Conference Room.
Developer of the Sanctuary Rain forest Eco Resort & Spa, Alexander Berenstain, said the 72-room facility will be built with a hurricane and earthquake proof design.
“The resort itself will consist of 72 rooms. It will be separate units so, it will blend perfectly in the nature and the Roseau Valley area,” he said
Berenstain added, “It will be kind of a unique development because besides being eco- friendly, because it will be built in the rain forest, we will preserve all the nature of it and will save as many trees and vegetation as possible. All their structures will be blended to the environment…”
He said when they started to develop this project, although Hurricane Maria had not yet hit Dominica, it was already designed to withstand category 5 hurricanes and earthquakes of 7.o magnitude.
