Sandals Just Reopened Another Resort in Saint Lucia

By: Alexander Britell - September 1, 2020

Sandals Resorts International has reopened another of its resorts in Saint Lucia, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

This week, Sandals relaunched its Sandals Regency La Toc resort, a 331-room property on a 220-acre estate on the western coast of the island. 

“The travel industry was one of the hardest hit, but we vowed to our core to come back stronger than ever. That resilience now has us beaming with optimism as we continue to safely open more and more of our resorts with the strictest health protocols to give our guests peace of mind,”  Adam Stewart, Deputy Chairman of Sandals Resorts International, told Caribbean Journal in a statement.

The company had already reopened the Sandals Grande St Lucian resort earlier this summer. 

Sandals’ third resort in Saint Lucia, the Sandals Halcyon Beach, is slated to reopen on Nov. 1, according to the company. 

Saint Lucia reopened for tourism in early June, and has been a model for safe tourism reopenings in the wider Caribbean, a sentiment echoed by Stewart.

“Saint. Lucia has also had incredible success in welcoming visitors back to the island, speaking volumes to the efforts made to recover tourism,” Stewart said. “As we begin to turn the corner, we see this renaissance for the curiosity of travel and a demand that has only gotten stronger.”

“We hear daily from our guests about their new-found appreciation and excitement for travel. And as the friction begins to relax more and more, we expect this to grow exponentially,” Stewart said. “People want to get back to doing the things they love, and travel experiences are topping the list. After so much time being pent-up, customers are longing for immersive culture, international cuisine, and the world’s best resorts to which we proudly and humbly rank at the top of the list.”
