Comfortable Luxury Re-invented.

Hotel the Champs

In November 2008 Hans and Lise opened the doors of Hotel The Champs.
A 5-room hotel where breakfast is included in the room rate with a restaurant on the side of the building.
9 years later the owners Hans and Lise decided to start renovations works: all rooms got a new wood work and the bathrooms were upgraded.
A pool was added into the garden. New beds, mattresses and pillows ordered, a plan designed for a new leisure area.
Unfortunateley Hurricane Maria blew the restaurant and old leisure area in the air.
One year later 2018 we received the new beds, mattresses and pillows to ensure the comfort of our rooms. We renovated the kitchen and set up a new restaurant area on the top floor.
And a new plan was born: we are now building 2 new rooms at street level (easy access) with a panoramic view, a huge leisure area on the middle level.
The pool deck is extended and a Jacuzzi added to give our guests a relaxed and luxury feeling.

Proprietors Lise and Hans like to do their best to make their guests really happy. For that they need to go the extra mile but that is no problem because there are no traffic jams along the extra mile.

Our Story

Back in 1994 while still living in the Netherlands, we (Lise and Hans) put our common dreams paper: Living and working in the Caribbean.
We made this our 10-15 years goal.
During our journey towards this goal we explored some other countries while moving slowly towards a sunny climate.
Our first stop was in Paris where we improved our French and enjoyed the big city live. After 6 years we decided was time to move to Barcelona in Spain.
In Barcelona we learned how it is to live close to the sea and we enjoyed the outside life and the nice temperatures.
We stayed 8 years and end 2006 we planned our big move.
After visiting many islands in the Caribbean we immediately felt at home on our first day in Dominica.
The sun, the sea, the nature and the friendly people. To be able to wear flip flops and shorts 365 days a year feels very relaxing.
In November 2008 we opened the doors of Hotel The Champs.
10 years later November 2018, 1 year after Hurricane Maria hit the Island, we are still here building 2 extra rooms and a big leisure area.
