Exclusive: RockResorts Looking to Open More Caribbean Properties

Although no timetable is set, Gary Thulander, managing director of RockResorts' The Landings property in St. Lucia, recently told Travel Agent that the St. Lucia location may be just the beginning of a series of RockResorts to soon grace the Caribbean. Thulander says The Landings, St. Lucia, slated to open in December, will be the first RockResort in the Caribbean in 13 years. After the 231-suite property opens its doors, two more Caribbean RockResorts might follow. Thulander says RockResorts is looking into building in Turks and Caicos and Dominica. He also notes that RockResorts are also looking into possible properties in Costa Rica and Honduras. "We targeted places that were unspoiled," Thulander told us,"places that still had that authentic Caribbean feel." All RockResorts offer a 10 percent commission. The Landings, St. Lucia will offer agent incentives and fam trips as the opening approaches, Thulander notes. Although The Landings, St. Lucia is still in the process of hiring a reservations manager, agents can stay updated by writing to Thulander [email protected].
