Sandals to open new hotel in St Lucia
Sandals Resorts International has announced its plan to add a fourth resort to its award-winning list of properties in St Lucia.
The new resort is set to break ground in spring 2017 on 19 acres of land next to the existing Sandals Grande Saint Lucian Resort and promises a level of unprecedented luxury never before seen on the island.
The newest resort will be called Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia and will boast an exotic infinity-edge sky pool bar offering picturesque views of the island’s beautiful north coast.
The new hotel will also boast 350 rooms and suites inclusive of the exotic SkyPool Butler Suites and all-butler signature swim-up Rondoval Suites, a first of their kind in the chain.
We pride ourselves on continuously raising the bar and Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia will completely re-energise the tourism market in Saint Lucia,” said Sandals chairman, Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart.
“Since we first opened Sandals Regency La Toc in 1993 we have consistently invested millions of dollars to re-imagine our offerings to ensure our resorts and the Saint Lucian destination is among the best in the world and thereby boosting the local economy.”
In addition to the Luxury Included amenities and more quality inclusions that have come to be associated with the Sandals experience, guests at Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia will be wowed upon entry with a contemporary open lobby featuring and a multi-purpose ‘Living Room’ with specialty piano bar, bowling and games, all state of the art.
The resort will also boast Saint Lucia’s first Café de Paris, Sandals’ signature French Patisserie as well as an exquisite Butler Lounge convenient for guests with late departures similar to Grenada's La Source hotel.
To complete the luxury experience, Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia will offer the luxuries of a full-service Red Lane Spa, exciting shopping options in a European style plaza featuring indulgent stores and exhilarating entertainment.
“We are very excited about the addition of this six-Star resort and what it means not just for Sandals but for Saint Lucia,” Stewart added.
“We are thankful for the support we have received in Saint Lucia throughout the years and we look forward to revolutionising the hospitality industry and to giving our guests a new level of luxury," he said.
The new resort will join the existing Sandals Regency La Toc, Sandals Halcyon and Sandals Grande Saint Lucian properties and bring Sandals’ room count in Saint Lucia to over 800, confirming its place as the largest hotel operator on the island, directly employing over 1,300 people.
