As we look ahead to brighter days, we continue to work to make your experience stress free — and now we can ease your worries about returning home after your relaxing getaway. We’re very pleased to let you know that we now include a free COVID-19 “Return Home Test” with your 5-night or longer stay with us (for shorter stays, the test fee is $75.00 per person.) If your home state or country has a quarantine protocol and permits “testing out,” this test should get the process started.
Our “Return Home Test” is the Abbot Rapid Antigen Test for detection of COVID-19 infection. Once you arrive in Serenity for your luxury escape, simply advise your butler that you’d like to arrange a “Return Home Test” prior to departure. They’ll make all the arrangements. Medical staff will administer the test on resort and you will receive doctor certified results in hard copy and electronically within 24-hours.
Remember, the “Return Home Test” does not replace Saint Lucia’s testing and entry requirements necessary for arrival on island. Please visit www.stlucia.org/covid-19 for complete details about the latest SAINT LUCIA entry requirements including forms/travel documents.
All arriving passengers in Saint Lucia must have a negative result from a COVID-19 PCR test taken no more than 7 days before arriving in Saint Lucia. In addition, all guests 18 years and older must submit a Travel Registration Form 7 days or more prior to arrival. Please print and travel with a copy of the following:

Due to ever changing circumstances, we are offering our future guests some peace of mind. We understand the uncertainty you may have about making your reservations at this time. Guided by our purpose of care, we want you to feel confident in your future plans and have updated our cancellation policies to provide you with maximum flexibility.
While we make every reasonable effort to provide a safe and sanitary environment and facilities for our guests in accordance with accepted medical guidelines and recommendations, there are no assurances of a completely “virus-free” environment. Aside from our efforts, the safety of all guests and staff is also highly dependent on ALL guests doing their part to act responsibly and respectfully and we ask that all guests be considerate and respectful towards others. In our discretion, guests who do not comply with protocols may be asked to leave the resort.
We work very hard to provide a safe guest environment, but are compelled to advise all guests that the resort does not and cannot guarantee that a guest will not contract an illness during their stay with us, and each guest assumes the risk and effects of contracting the Covid-19 virus. Guests are also cautioned that limited medical facilities and services are available where the hotel is located, which could complicate any illness. Upon check-in, each guest will be required to sign a written acknowledgment that they UNDERSTAND AND ASSUME ALL RISKS associated with the Covid-19 virus, and FULLY RELEASE the Hotel and its affiliated parties from any and all liability or claims relating to Covid-19.
This Assumption of Risk and Covenant Not to Sue shall be LEGALLY BINDING. Should any guest or visitor bring a claim, suit or any other action in violation of this provision, the claim, suit or other action shall be DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE (meaning permanently dismissed) and all costs of dismissal, including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs, shall be borne by the party who wrongfully brought the claim, suit or other action in violation of this Assumption of Risk and Covenant Not to Sue.
Please appreciate that, without this Assumption of Risk and Covenant Not to Sue, it would be very hard for this resort to operate under the current circumstances, and that you are fully informed in making the best possible travel decisions for you and your loved ones.
A copy of the acknowledgment and release is available in advance upon request and guests will be asked to sign a waiver upon arrival on resort.
We look forward to the return of our guests and want you to know that our management and incredible staff have been instituting our Paradise Protection Protocols to ensure the worry-free and relaxing experience you have been dreaming about in Serenity at Coconut Bay. The safety and the welfare of our guests and our tireless staff – our Coconut Bay family – will always be our first priority. It is also the top priority of the Government of Saint Lucia who has announced new Phase One Protocols for visitors including requiring a pre-travel test for COVID-19.
Your Serenity vacation will be as wonderful as ever but it will look a little different as we adhere to Government of Saint Lucia, WHO and CDC operational guidelines during these ever-evolving times. We have evaluated and enhanced our rigorous cleaning procedures putting in place new sanitation and social distancing protocols that will be visible from the moment you arrive at our airport kiosk and will see throughout your stay from Door Seals initialed by your room attendant to a new take-out option should you prefer private dining. There will be electrostatic sprayers, even more hand sanitizing stations, and though hugs and handshakes are not an option for now, our warm Saint Lucian smiles and hospitality will always be yours. These policies, procedures and actions follow the Centers for Disease Control guidelines “Facilities Cleaning and Disinfecting” for COVID-19 and these policies also align with Saint Lucia’s directives. These best practices are performed for the safety of you, our guests, as well as our valued employees. Thank you for your patience, understanding, cooperation and trust.
This is just an overview of our Paradise Protection Protocols and how we are applying all of the various government mandates to our resort for the benefit of your health and safety. Our goal will always be to provide you with a safe and memorable experience. We’ll keep you updated as we approach our reopening and of course if you have a question please don’t hesitate to call reservations at 877-252-0304 /758-456-9999 or email us at email@example.comfirstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep in mind mandates and protocols are fluid and as restrictions are lifted and directives change, we will do our best to keep you advised so regardless of when you plan to visit, you can enjoy our Peace of Paradise.
Due to ever changing circumstances, we would like to offer our future guests some peace of mind. We understand the uncertainty you may have about making your reservations at this time. Guided by our purpose of care, we want you to feel confident in your future plans and have updated our cancellation policies to provide you with maximum flexibility.
