Silks Hotel

Hatton Garden, Marigot, St. Andrew, Dominica

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

French taste transformed this 17th-century mansion and former rum distillery into one of the most posh hotels on the island. The idyllic, romantic getaway is surrounded by 1.4 acres of gardens. Common areas and rooms are elegant and plush with a regal blend of African and Creole decor. The romantic tower room, which begs for a Juliet to call up a Romeo, is part of a two-level suite that includes a four-poster bed and bathroom with hand-painted French tiles. The only downside to the facility is the lack of bathroom amenities—soap is supplied. Though the fare at the hotel's restaurant is limited, it is well presented, quite good, and now open to the public. A kayak and a bamboo raft are available for guest use. The property was renovated in 2007, and a small wine cellar was added. For an additional fee, you can get a car and driver.

PROS

  • one of the most luxurious lodgings on the island
  • close to the airport
