Canada’s Cabot to build resort, golf course on Saint Lucia

INVERNESS, NS — Cabot, Canada’s premier luxury golf resort and residential community, says it plans to develop, manage and operate a new master planned resort community in Saint Lucia, marking the brand’s first international property.

Located on Point Hardy, a 375-acre peninsula at the northern tip of Saint Lucia, Cabot Saint Lucia will offer a golf club, residential community and resort.

Cabot already has Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs in Nova Scotia. The company says this new Caribbean property will include Cabot’s third golf course and second resort in its expanding portfolio.

“Mike Keiser and I have long-awaited the perfect opportunity to expand the Cabot brand internationally,” says Ben Cowan-Dewar, CEO and Co-founder of Cabot Links.

“With the tropical allure found in Saint Lucia and the magnificent ocean views from every corner of this spectacular site, we feel honored to be involved with such a special property within an incredible country.”

The crown jewel of the luxury resort, he says, will be the 18-hole Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw designed golf course, Cabot Point, with sweeping Caribbean Sea views and including seven holes that play directly along the ocean.

“Our goal is to create a golf course with a sense of enjoyment and interest to complement and hopefully equal the site’s overwhelming natural beauty,” says Coore, Co-principal of Coore & Crenshaw. “If we can accomplish that goal, we believe Cabot Point could become one of the Caribbean’s most sought out courses. Ben Cowan-Dewar and Mike Keiser have certainly found another spectacular property for golf.”

Plans include a 50-suite boutique hotel, three restaurants, boutique retail shops, Cabot Spa and clubhouse. There will also be privately-owned townhomes. Residents and guests will have access to an array of activities including a sports facility, a full-service beach club and excursions with the Cabot Saint Lucia Explorers Team.

“We’re thoughtfully planning an unparalleled experience that will celebrate one of the world’s top destinations by providing guests and residents once-in-a-lifetime encounters at every turn supported by well-appointed amenities and sustainability efforts,” said George Punoose, Principal of Cabot Saint Lucia. “Cabot Saint Lucia plans to fully accentuate the rich local culture and the island’s extraordinary offerings so that all members and guests get to experience the beautiful country to the fullest.”

Cabot Saint Lucia will break ground on phase one of development in the summer of 2019 with golf play slated for 2021.
