CORONAVIRUS – COVID-19 NOTICE OF CLOSURE
Dear Valued Partners and Guests,
Given the current global pandemic due to Covid-19, Coco Palm’s number one priority is the wellbeing of our valued guests, our Coco Family and the citizens of Saint Lucia. We are guided by the Government of Saint Lucia which has announced the closure of its airports to all incoming commercial and private flights effective March 23, 2020 through April 5, 2020. For the latest advisory from Saint Lucia, please use the link https://www.stlucia.org/en/covid-19/
We are asking guests to amend their holiday to a later date rather than cancel with a special offer for a future stay. However, should you prefer to cancel completely, our Reservations team are working to assist with any bookings made directly with Coco Palm in amending your travel dates. Please contact our team on firstname.lastname@example.org or on (758)456 2800. If your booking is through a travel agent or a third party, please contact them directly.
Our Marketing team are in communication with our travel partners planning for life after Corona with offers and rates made available through 2021 to welcome you and your loved ones as a valued guest of our Coco Palm Family. Your continued support and kind messages will help our Team and beautiful island of Saint Lucia recover together.
