Sandals has announced plans to add a fourth resort in St Lucia.
Work on the Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia property is scheduled to begin in the spring across a 19-acre stretch of land next to the hotel operator’s existing Sandals Grande Saint Lucian Resort.
Sandals said the resort will include 350 rooms and suites.
An opening date for the property has yet to be announced.
The new addition will join the current trio of Sandals resorts in the Caribbean destination consisting of Sandals Regency La Toc, Sandals Halcyon and Sandals Grande Saint Lucian.
Upon its completion, Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia will bring the company’s room count in the destination to more than 800 – solidifying its place as the largest hotel operator on the island.
Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, Sandals chairman said: “We pride ourselves on continuously raising the bar and Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia will completely re-energise the tourism market in Saint Lucia.
“Since we first opened Sandals Regency La Toc in 1993 we have consistently invested millions of dollars to re-imagine our offerings to ensure our resorts and the Saint Lucian destination is among the best in the world and thereby boosting the local economy.”
He added: “We are very excited about the addition of this six-star resort and what it means not just for Sandals but for Saint Lucia.
“We are thankful for the support we have received in Saint Lucia throughout the years and we look forward to revolutionising the hospitality industry and to giving our guests a new level of luxury.
“This resort will set the stage for the continued revolution of the tourism product in the Caribbean.”
