Saint Lucia was one of the first destinations to relaunch tourism when the island reopened its borders at the beginning of June, and it’s open to tourists including those from the United States.
What you’ll find in Saint Lucia are many resorts with widely spaced accommodations ideal for social distancing, and strong safety protocols for hotels, transportation, and attractions.
All travelers to Saint Lucia must submit a pre-arrival travel registration form and proof of having received a negative COVID-19 PCR test within seven days of arrival on-island. Visitors must have reservations at (and confie to) a hotel that has been certified as compliant with Saint Lucia’s COVID-19 safety protocols in order to be admitted into the country. (See more on the island’s policies here). Happily, Saint Lucia’s diverse hotel stock specializes in resorts you’ll never want to leave.
So where can you stay if you’re planning to visit? Here are the resorts that have received COVID-19 certification and are open right now.
Ladera: Three-walled suites 1,000 feet above the beach and with spectacular views of the Piton mountains make a stay at Ladera seem otherworldly — in other words, the perfect place for escape. Just 37 rooms means plenty of elbow room for guests.
