Sandals Regency La Toc Golf Resort and Spa in Saint Lucia has become the latest resort in the Sandals hotel chain to re-open following the shutdown brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
Sandals Regency welcomed some 80 guests on Monday August 31, 2020, just over five months after it announced a temporary closure in March 2020.
The arriving guests were greeted by a team of exuberant employees amid a carnival atmosphere, all taking place under the strict guidelines of the Sandals Platinum Protocols of Cleanliness.
The re-opening of Sandals Regency is in line with the commitment given by the World’s Leading All Inclusive Resort chain to work closely with tourism stakeholders in the Caribbean to try and get the sector back up and running, since so many persons including taxi drivers, farmers, entertainers and vendors among others depend on it to make a living.
The reopening of Sandals Regency, along with the Sandals Grande Saint Lucia Beach Resort and Spa which opened seven weeks ago, means that the company has been able to bring close to 1,000 of its team members back out to work.
Meantime Sandals Halcyon Beach Resort and Spa, the third Sandals Resort in Saint Lucia, has been scheduled for reopening in November, 2020.
