St. Lucia Gets Ready For Coco Palm

Coco Palm, St. Lucia’s newest four-star boutique hotel is being touted as ‘the perfect fusion of Creole tradition and contemporary design.’ The 83-room hotel will formally open September 17th and is the second of two properties opened in the last two years by Coco Resorts with an emphasis on Caribbean Chic.Coco Palm is owned and operated by Allen Chastanet, a Caribbean travel industry veteran who helped launch Chris Blackwell’s Island Outpost group of boutique hotels in the mid-90s.

Chastanet created Coco Palm by extending the South Beach lifestyle hotel concept to St. Lucia. His vision is to offer travellers hassle-free check-in, faster service, around the clock attention and whatever extra effort it takes to make every single guest feel valued.

“I have surrounded myself with people who not only share my vision but share my passion and knowledge of the industry,” explains Chastanet.

“An enormous amount of thought and attention went into every detail in creating Coco Palm. When you look at the rates you will be amazed at level of service, the stylish modern amenities, and the truly authentic Caribbean details.”

Affordable room rates start at just $125 per night, now through December 15.


The trademark of Coco Palm is its “Hosts,” individuals who are dedicated to a specific floor with the aim of personalizing each guest’s experience. The “host” simplifies the check-in/check-out procedure by eliminating the traditional registration desk and greeting each guest upon arrival.

“After a long day of travelling, arriving at even the speediest check-in desk can seem like a chore. That is why at Coco Palm, check-in is done at your leisure, by an attentive team of hosts, available throughout your stay,” explained Chastanet.

All rooms include modern amenities such as air conditioning, DVD players, Wi-Fi, Direct TV, CD players, cordless phones and walk-in showers.

A large swimming pool surrounds the hotel and guests who book Coco Palm’s Swim-Up rooms can literally dive into the pool from their terrace.
