New hotel developments expected to bring 1,000 rooms to Saint Lucia


New hotel developments expected to bring 1,000 rooms to Saint Lucia

The Saint Lucia Tourist Board has announced the addition of several new hotel products that will add more than 1,000 new rooms to the island’s inventory in the coming years.

“This hotel boom adds much-needed inventory to meet the demands of our key source markets,” said Minister for Tourism Dominic Fedee. “Tourism growth remains a priority in 2017 as well as developing new island experiences and events for travellers. We are optimistic that this will be a year of tourism expansion.”

The Royalton Saint Lucia, slated to open in Feb. 2017, is a 352-room hotel located on a private cove in Cap Estate. Serenity at Coconut Bay, a new adults-only, all-suite resort in Saint Lucia, is scheduled to welcome guests in spring 2017, featuring a private enclave of 36 suites with plunge pools and butlers. The Harbor Club on the Rodney Bay Marina will feature 115 four-star accommodations with a choice of suites and a number of amenities including two restaurants; it’s scheduled to open in Sept. 2017.

Sandals has also announced plans for the construction of the brand’s fourth property on Saint Lucia, Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia. The new hotel, nestled on 19 acres of land next to the existing Sandals Grande Saint Lucia, is set to break ground in spring 2017.

The Pearl of the Caribbean, meanwhile, is to occupy a 700-acre site on the south end of the island at Beausejour, Vieux Fort, with the initial phase of construction on the $2.6 billion project expected to begin in 2017. Its first phase will include 200 hotel rooms and a spa, with up to 500 villas potentially to be added as construction continues.

Island hotels adding rooms to their inventories include Fond Doux, Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort, and Sandals Halcyon Beach Resort & Spa.
