The Royalton Saint Lucia Resort and Spa has created over 800 permanent jobs.
The grand opening of the Royalton Saint Lucia Resort and Spa took place last Thursday evening.
Tourism Minister Hon. Dominic Fedee said the opening of the newly-constructed US$250 million Royalton Saint Lucia Resort and Spa is an expression of investor confidence in Saint Lucia. He added that Saint Lucia is especially proud to have such a resort as part of its hotel product.
“I want to begin by offering my own congratulations to this project and to ask you to join me in congratulating the team on a job well done. Now, we have a little more to sell when we go [on promotional tours].”
The luxury resort boasts 1183 suites for families as well as adults only. Guests will have access to exclusive beach areas, 12 thematic bars, a night club and a business and convention center.
Chief Executive Officer of the Royalton, Stephen Hunter, said his personal interest in Saint Lucia dates back 20 years when his father operated a hotel resort on the island.
“As a young man I have spent many Christmases in Saint Lucia, and like anybody that spends time here, I fell in love with the island and, of course, its people.”
Prime Minister Hon. Allen M. Chastanet all welcomed the significant investment that the resort is making to the local economy.
“To invest US $250 million, we here in Saint Lucia have the deepest appreciation for what you have done.”
The Royalton Saint Lucia Resort and Spa has created over 800 permanent jobs. The resort is located at the former site of the Smuggler’s Cove Resort, at Cap Estate.
