Apple Leisure Group Expands Caribbean Footprint with Two New Resort Management Deals in St. Lucia



NEWTOWN SQUARE, PA (November 9, 2017) – Apple Leisure Group® (ALG) subsidiary AMResorts® today announced that the company will bring two of its luxury, all inclusive resort brands to St. Lucia. These contracts mark the company’s entry into the island, and expand Apple Leisure Group’s rapidly growing resort management portfolio to its ninth country. With 16 properties in the development pipeline, ALG will have more than 60 open resorts across Mexico, the Caribbean, Costa Rica and Panama by 2019.

“The ALG family of companies has a deep-rooted relationship with the Caribbean,” said Alex Zozaya, CEO of Apple Leisure Group. “We are invested in joining projects that bring tourism to the region, creating jobs and driving an economic stimulus.”

The resorts will form part of the new luxury resort and residential community Canelles Resort and Residences at Honeymoon Beach, which is being developed by Infinite Property Group, Ltd., a subsidiary of Infinite Holdings, Ltd. Located on 209 acres on the southeast coast of St. Lucia, the project will also feature an 18-hole Nicklaus Design Golf Course and Club and luxury condominiums and villas upon its completion in 2020.

“This project is the perfect example of how the ALG team works closely with owners to bring their vision to fruition, as our partnership with Infinite Holdings will create an all-inclusive experience that is unlike anything in our portfolio,” said Javier Coll, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of Apple Leisure Group.

A major driver of business to the Caribbean, ALG is responsible for delivering every two out of 10 travelers to the region, and has 21 resorts across the Dominican Republic, Curaçao, and Jamaica.

“St. Lucia is an easily accessible slice of paradise, with non-stop flights available from several major gateways in the U.S. and Canada year-round. Recognized as one of the world’s most beautiful islands, the destination’s unique mix of award-winning beaches, lively culinary scene, rich culture and natural beauty make it the perfect fit for our portfolio,” said Gonzalo del Peon, President of AMResorts.
