Two Saint Lucia Resorts Offer Canadians Free PCR Tests

The Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa and Serenity at Coconut Bay are expanding their Paradise Protection Protocols and are now offering free Return Home PCR testing for Canadian guests staying 7-nights and longer.

The offer takes effect on Nov. 21, 2021; for shorter stay guests, the properties offer the option of purchasing the test for US$150 per person.

Canadian guests can arrange for their Return Home PCR Test on arrival with the Front Desk at Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa or with their butler at Serenity at Coconut Bay.

The test will be administered at the resorts by a medical professional and doctor certified results are provided within 24-hours. The PCR Test does not replace Saint Lucia’s testing requirements necessary for entry.

And to further provide guests with a safe, simple and worry-free getaway, the resorts also include free travel insurance with stays of 5-nights or longer, for bookings made through Dec. 31, 2021 and travel through Sept. 2, 2022, whether they are made direct with the resort, with a travel agent or tour operator.

The insurance program covers medical and quarantine expenses as well as travel protection for international arriving guests. Guests staying fewer than five nights have the option to purchase the insurance within 24 hours of arrival on resort for US$39 per person.

Mark Adams, president and CEO of Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa and Serenity at Coconut Bay, said that: “As travellers ourselves we know first-hand how difficult it can be to juggle the testing required, particularly return home tests when you’re unfamiliar with how to make arrangements in your vacation destination.”

Adams continued: “We are one of the few Saint Lucian resorts covering the cost of testing and have worked diligently to offer on-site PCR testing for our Canadian guests to ease the stress and the expense that goes along with meeting all travel requirements.”
