Westin to feature in Le Paradis

A Westin hotel has been tipped to be the centrepiece in St. Lucia’s new luxury development, Le Paradis. This luxury condominium resort will feature 232 guest rooms, as well as an 18-hole Greg Norman-designed golf course managed by Troon, an international spa with 26 treatment rooms. Future construction includes a 40-slip marina, marina village, five star boutique hotel, upscale boutique shopping and commercial centre. Starwood will manage the hotel and condominiums under its upper-upscale brand, Westin Hotels & Resorts. The hotel is scheduled to open in August 2007.

St. Lucia was recently rated by Oprah’s O Magazine on page 288 of the Fifth Anniversary edition, as first among five must-see places in one’s lifetime. St. Lucia as a destination or second home location has definitely jumped into the top tier.

Nestled in the lush coastal foothills of the east coast of St. Lucia, the 554-acre resort showcases the island’s stunning beauty matched by no other location in the Caribbean. Providing a secluded yet accessible tropical haven and embraced by almost three miles of coastline, Le Paradis boasts small bays and distinctive peninsulas just 20 minutes from the international airport with direct-air access to major cities in North America and the U.K.

St. Lucia’s real estate and hospitality markets have taken off in recent years and are poised for continued appreciation and growth. The pristine east coast of St. Lucia will provide the ideal setting to reward both owners and guests.

“Le Paradis is destined to be the next Caribbean paradise and St. Lucia’s premier luxury development offering the best in resort living,” said Kierron Dolby, Developer and Managing Director of DCG Properties, Ltd. “The Westin name and its strong loyalty base will attract the exact customer we are targeting for guests of the hotel, as well as potential owners of the condominiums.”
