Hyatt Hotels Corporation says the Hyatt affiliate has entered into a management agreement with the Indian-based TTS Resorts Limited for the first Hyatt-branded hotel on the island.

The Grand Hyatt St Lucia will be located on the southwestern corner of the island in Sunset Bay, Choiseul and will be situated on more than 23,000 square feet of “dynamic, state-of-the-art gathering spaces designed to handle events of any size and kind.

“Tourism development is a key driver of economic growth and a priority for the island of St Lucia, and we are thrilled to collaborate with the team at TTS Resorts LTD. to bring the iconic Grand Hyatt brand to one of the Caribbean’s most popular tourist destinations,” said Camilo Bolaños, vice president of development and real estate.

“Set to be the premier luxury resort in St Lucia, the new Grand Hyatt hotel is expected to provide both leisure and business guests with superior service within a multicultural backdrop of dramatic architecture, innovative restaurants, luxury spa and wellbeing facilities and sophisticated meeting spaces,” he added,

The resort will encompass two hilltops that will provide a view of St Lucia’s two famous volcanic spires, Gros Piton and Petit Piton, which are designated a World Heritage Site and will be less than 30 miles from the hotel.

Grand Hyatt St Lucia follows a significant planned expansion of the Hyatt brand footprint in the Caribbean, including similar hotels in Cayman Islands, Turks & Caicos, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic.
