MONTEGO BAY — Sandals Resorts International has confirmed plans to add a fourth resort on Saint Lucia. Groundbreaking for the new Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia – nestled on 19 acres of land next to the existing Sandals Grande Saint Lucian Resort – is set to begin in spring 2017.
With the addition of this new resort, Sandals guests in Saint Lucia will have the option of ‘Staying-at-One, Playing-at-Four’.
The company says the new resort will build on the concept of unparalleled luxury and innovation “which has come to be synonymous with Sandals LaSource Grenada and indeed with the Sandals of the future.” Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia will offer 350 rooms and suites inclusive of the exotic SkyPool Butler Suites and all-butler signature swim-up Rondoval Suites, a first in the chain. It will also boast an infinity-edge sky pool bar with picturesque views of the island’s north coast. The new resort will also feature a high-end entertainment package with a main stage dominated by a 20’ high LED screen, and a mobile DJ party scene.
“We pride ourselves on continuously raising the bar and Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia will completely re-energize 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.”
Resort highlights will also include a contemporary open lobby and a multi-purpose ‘Living Room’ with specialty piano bar, bowling and games; a Red Lane Spa; Saint Lucia’s first Café de Paris, Sandals’ signature French Patisserie; and a Butler Lounge convenient for guests with late departures.
“We are very excited about the addition of this 6-Star resort and what it means not just for Sandals but for Saint Lucia,” added Stewart. “We are thankful for the support we have received in Saint Lucia throughout the years and we look forward to revolutionizing the hospitality industry and to giving our guests a new level of luxury. This resort will set the stage for the continued revolution of the tourism product in the Caribbean.”
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.
