Saint Lucia to See “Significant Increase” in Hotel Room Stock

Saint Lucia is projecting what Prime Minister Allen Chastanet calls a “significant increase” in the island’s room stock over the medium term. 

The island’s growing hotel pipeline is headlined by the estimated $300 million Canelles Resort in Micoud, a project by the Galaxy Group that will included a residential component and a pair of hotels managed and branded by Apple Leisure Group’s AMResorts. 

That’s along with the new Cabot Links Saint Lucia, a luxury golf destination resort project at the northern tip of the island in Cap Estate from the developers of Canada’s renowned Cabot Links. 

That project will consist of a 50-unit hotel, along with residential plots for single-family homes and a championship  golf course; work has already begun on-site for the development of the golf course, with hotel work expected to launch later this year. 

Notably, the course is the brainchild of arguably the hottest team in course design right now, Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw.

And then there’s the Pearl of the Caribbean, the resort centered around the island’s new thoroughbred racing track in Vieux Fort at the far south of Saint Lucia. 

Developers will be building a 250-room “three to four” star hotel, including a casino, a hotel school and food and beverage concepts. 

That project is awaiting final approval from Saint Lucia’s DCA. 

And a new Courtyard by Marriott hotel project is coming to Saint Lucia, Caribbean Journal Invest has learned. 

The estimated $42 million project will be set on 41,979 square feet of land northwest of the Duty Free Shopping Complex at Pointe Seraphine in Saint Lucia’s capital, Castries. 

The 140-room-and-suite project will include a swimming pool, a fitness center, food and beverage concepts and rooftop terraces. 

Developers have already submitted their final drawings to Saint Lucia’s Development Control Authority, according to Prime Minister Alan Chastanet. 

“We expect significant progress to be made this year and in the medium term” on these projects, Chastanet said this week.
