Luxury hospitality network Fairmont is expanding in the Caribbean. The southwest coast of Saint Lucia, a leading upscale destination in the Lesser Antilles, is the new home for a new resort built by Fairmont. Expected to open in late 2019, the 120-room luxury hotel with 40 private residential villas will be situated on 25 acres and 1,870 feet of beach front on the southwest coast of Saint Lucia, a leading upscale destination in the Lesser Antilles. Fairmont Saint Lucia at Sunset Bay will join Caribbean and Mid-Atlantic sister properties Fairmont Royal Pavilion in Barbados, and Bermuda’s Fairmont Southampton and Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, A Fairmont Managed Hotel.
Fairmont Saint Lucia at Sunset Bay will be the island’s southernmost luxury resort, boasting spectacular views and access to Saint Lucia’s natural landscapes, palm-fringed beaches, magnificent waterfalls, miles of unspoiled rainforest and the majestic Piton Mountains.
The award-winning architects and designers of WATG and Wimberly Interiors will create a luxurious Caribbean experience unrivalled on the island. The project will fuse contemporary design with preservation and enhancement of the natural landscape, conserving micro-ecosystems of small mango groves and lush mountain streams, protecting the beach from tidal erosion, and investing in mature landscaping instilling a sense of privacy.
Built into a natural amphitheater, each of the 120 guest rooms and suites and 40 residential villas will offer unobstructed views across the bay. The resort will feature four restaurants and bars; a 9,000 square foot Fairmont spa; outstanding pool facilities including a main resort pool, children’s pool and adult pool with cabanas; private marina with moorings for deluxe yachts; and approximately 10,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and function space.
From the mountains to the sea, the Fairmont experience will include adventure activities such as paddle surfing, mountain biking, and hiking to discover spectacular nature trails; pampering poolside or at the spa; and connecting with local culture in the nearby fishing village, the source of many local foods and ingredients featured on resort menus.
For guests looking for a more permanent secondary home or getaway retreat, Fairmont Saint Lucia at Sunset Bay will offer 40 private Fairmont-branded residences.
