Sandals has officially launched its new resort project in St. Lucia. The company held a mid-June launch event for the new Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia, which will be the fourth Sandals Resorts International property on the island.
The more than 330-suite resort gets its name from Sandals’ LaSource Grenada property, representing an expansion for the LaSource sub-brand, one of the company’s most innovative resorts. It will include over-the-water bungalows, along with Sandals’ Skypool, Rondoval and swim-up suites.
Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia will be located along Pigeon Island Beach, adjacent to Sandals Grande Saint Lucian.
The resort, which will break ground later this year, will introduce new culinary concepts including the American-inspired “Tavern,” Greek restaurant “Eros” and a noodle shop, among 10 total restaurants.
Guests will have access to the three other Sandals resorts on the island.
Crucially, Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia will be the first Sandals property to have continuous winding river pools surrounding every room block, all with unobstructed access to the main pool.
The resort will also have a rooftop infinity-edge sky pool, along with two additional pools including a 9,000-square-foot, curved-glassfronted infinity pool with a swimup bar and an adjacent fire pit lounge area.
Other additions include an entertainment facility with a fourlane bowling alley, game room, living room and bar.
It’s the latest in a wave of activity for the company in St. Lucia, where it recently debuted new overwater bungalows and purchased the island’s only 18-hole golf course, the Saint Lucia Golf Club.
