Royal By Rex Resorts
Royal Hotel, St Lucia, is a 4-star luxury resort which is set around a mile- long section of Reduit Beach, famed for its glorious golden sands. The hotel's many attractions include award-winning restaurants, a pampering spa and a wide selection of sports and fitness activities.
There are 96 well-appointed, spacious suites offering privacy and comfort. All suites, restaurants and bars are non-smoking areas, although smoking may be permitted in certain outdoor patio areas. Sun decks, parasols and bars, as well as a 100 foot freeform swimming pool, are laid out amidst tropical gardens and landscaped grounds.
The hotel is a 90 minute drive (39miles) from Hewanorra Airport and a 10 minute drive (5 miles) from GF Charles Airport. The capital, Castries, only 6 miles to the south, is an ideal place for shopping and absorbing some of the island's heritage. Reception staff will be happy to organise taxis or car hire.
The large luxurious cream and pink marbled entrance foyer is stunning, as is the grand staircase leading up to another three floors. Mainly neutral colour schemes, with splashes of color, continue throughout, adding to the feeling of calmness, relaxation and quality. In the guest-suites this decor is enhanced with Caribbean-style touches as well as natural wood furniture and fixtures.
Restaurants and Bars
