Sandals to Open New Resort in St. Lucia
Sandals is expanding in the Caribbean with a major new property: Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia.
The property, which Sandals is billing as a “six-star” resort, will break ground next to the existing Sandals Grande Saint Lucian Resort in Spring 2017. It gets its LaSource name from Sandals’ Grenada resort.
The 350-room-and-suite resort will feature some of the brand’s latest innovations, like an infinity-edge sky pool, SkyPool Butler Suites and all-butler swim-up “Rondoval Suites,” a first for the chain.
The resort will also include a main stage with a 20-foot 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,” promised 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.”
Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia will join the existing Sandals Regency La Toc, Sandals Halcyon and Sandals Grande Saint Lucian properties, bringing the company’s room count in St. Lucia to more than 800.
“We are very excited about the addition of this 6-Star resort and what it means not just for Sandals but for Saint Lucia,” Stewart said. “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.”
