Two new high-profile all-inclusive hotels are coming to the island of Saint Lucia.
The properties, part of a larger hotel project called Canelles Resort, will include two Apple Leisure Group subsidiary AMResorts’ brands: Dreams and Zoetry.
Together, the two hotels will comprise 330 rooms, along with an adjacent real estate component with 380 residential units.
The two hotels will include eateries, bars, conference centers, a spa, children’s clubs and entertainment areas.
Dreams is AMResorts’ high-end family-friendly all-inclusive brand, while its Zoëtry hotels offer more of a boutique wellness-focused experience.
The project, which was first announced in 2017, is slated to break ground later this year, the company told Caribbean Journal.
“Saint Lucia is a beautiful vacation destination,” said Ying Jin, chief executive officer of Caribbean Galaxy, the developer of the project. “WE are delighted to partner with Saint Lucia and with AMResorts to make this stunning resort a reality.”
It’s one of two projects in the region for Caribbean Galaxy at present, along with the in-construction Ramada by Wyndham St Kitts, which is slated for completion this September.
The new projects are part of a rapid regional expansion for AMResorts, which has more than 10,00 hotel rooms in its pipeline.
They also add to a burgeoning hotel pipeline in Saint Lucia, from Range Developments’ Black Bay project to a new Courtyard Marriott in Castries to a Hyatt-branded 400-room hotel coming to the northwest of the island.
