Saint Lucia Hotels Launch Free Testing for Travelers

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - January 15, 2021

A number of hotels in Saint Lucia have launched free antigen (rapid) testing for qualified guests, following the announcement of the new CDC rule requiring testing for returning travelers to the United States. 

So far, 18 hotels on the island are now offering the free option, including Anse Chastanet; all five Bay Gardens properties; Calabash Cove; Caille Blanc; Cap Maison; Coconut Bay Jade Mountain; Ladera; Marigot Bay; Sandals Resorts in Saint Lucia; Serenity at Coconut Bay; Sugar Beach – A Viceroy Resort; Stonefield Villa Resort and Ti Kaye. 

Travelers can make appointments for the tests once they arrive on the island, or through their hotel. 

More Saint Lucia hotels are expected to add the program in the coming weeks. 

The new CDC protocol requires all travelers to the U.S., including Americans returning from trips abroad, to show proof of a negative test within 72 hours before their return.
