A major new hotel development is coming to the island of St Lucia, the country’s government announced.
The island’s Reduit beach will be redeveloped and become the home of a dual-branded project including a luxury five-star branded Curio by Hilton hotel and a traditional Hilton hotel.
The property will include a total of 500 rooms; 350 rooms assigned to the Hilton, and 150 assigned to the Curio by Hilton.
Work on the property is slated to begin in the final quarter of 2017, according to a government statement.
The new project is part of a major hotel development wave in St Lucia that should add 2,000 new rooms to the island’s hotel stock in the next four years.
