Dream Hotel Group is to bring its distinct brand of luxury lifestyle hospitality to the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia with the opening of Cas en Bas Beach Resort by Dream Hotel Group in 2023.
The latest signing with Edward Wellington, CEO of UK-based resort development company Wellington Estates, marks the group’s first location in Saint Lucia and its second By Dream Hotel Group branded property in the Caribbean, following The Bight by Dream Hotel Group in Turks and Caicos.
Following the sun
Cas en Bas Beach Resort by Dream Hotel Group comprises two contemporary low-rise buildings and features multiple food and beverage venues, including the Ice Bar and restaurant with large, elevated terrace overlooking the pool, and one of the longest swimming pools in Saint Lucia.
The layout of the resort complex has been thoughtfully planned to follow the path of the sun, which passes over the pool through the day, while shielding luxury accommodations from excessive direct sunlight. A mix of sunny and shaded public areas, private terraces and elegant four-poster sunbeds are provided for guests seeking to sunbathe or chill, poolside or on the resort’s white sandy Cabana Beach.
Leisure amenities also include a champagne terrace and rooftop bar, signature restaurant, poolside dining, gym, spa treatments, and a beach bar and grill on the Cas en Bas Beach. The resort also offers a tapas-style wine bar, grab-and-go café, sports bar, business centre and guest services lounge, as well as a dedicated wellness centre and fitness facility available exclusively for Cas en Bas Beach Resort guests.
The boutique condo-resort will feature 90 luxury accommodations, all with spacious, beautifully appointed bedrooms, en-suite bathrooms, expansive living areas and kitchens with premium finishes throughout.
Each unit benefits from full height sliding doors that maximise the natural light and open onto private balconies for an indoor-outdoor tropical retreat. Dedicated concierges will be on hand to assist with guests’ day-to-day requirements before, during and after their stay, including pre-arrival delivery service of essential provisions.
Dream Hotel Group CEO Jay Stein said: “Edward Wellington is the perfect partner to bring our vision of hospitality to life in the beautiful island of Saint Lucia,. It’s an honour to collaborate with like-minded innovators who share our passion for creating new, fresh and authentic hospitality experiences. We look forward to introducing our new By Dream Hotel Group brand of hospitality to guests and locals alike in 2023.”
Wellington Estates’ CEO Edward Wellington commented: “We are delighted to enhance this wonderful island’s tourism in partnership Dream Hotel Group. Our objective is to create a truly world-class, professionally managed resort that offers the finest levels of contemporary island living, and Dream Hotel Group shares in that ambition.”
St. Lucia Minister of Tourism Dr. Ernest Hilaire added: “We are delighted and proud to welcome Dream Hotel Group to Saint Lucia. The new Cas en Bas Beach Resort, which sits in a prime location in the prestigious Cap Estate between the beach and two golf courses, will further elevate the luxury hospitality offering on the island for international homeowners and visitors alike.”
