St. Lucia is getting a new Ritz-Carlton hotel. According to an announcement by the company, the new luxury property will have “ample” meeting and group space in both indoor and outdoor venues. 

Ritz-Carlton, part of Marriott International, signed a management agreement with Range Developments to open the new, 180-room Ritz-Carlton St. Lucia in 2021 on the southern tip of the island, on the Caribbean southwest coast.

Not only will the hotel be within easy reach of Hewanorra International Airport – which has seen increased airlift catering to luxury travelers in recent years – it also will be in close proximity to the famous twin volcanoes known as the “Pitons.” The Pitons are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Among the hotel’s many amenities will be multiple dining facilities, all with outdoor seating; a spa that includes an outdoor treatment area; and several swimming pools, including one that will be designated as a quiet relaxation area only for adults.

The Ritz-Carlton, St. Lucia is the anchor of a larger development project led by Range Developments, a multi-phase project currently titled the “Black Bay Master Development," set on a total of 180 acres. The project will be developed under the country’s Citizenship-by-Investment program.

The Ritz-Carlton, St. Lucia will be designed and built to the highest standards. The project is estimated to create about 500 jobs on the island during construction, with a similar amount once the hotel is operational.

“We are delighted to see this first step in what will be a major project on the southern tip of the island,” said Allen Chastanet, the prime minister of St. Lucia, in a written statement. “We have maintained that our focus is on enhancing our tourism offerings and we are committed to ensuring sustainable investment and employment in Saint Lucia and particularly in the south. I am elated that we have such eminent partners in this project in what is surely going to be one of the best resorts in the Caribbean.”
