Royalton Saint Lucia Swim Out Room Tour
Swim out rooms are located on the ground floor of buildings 1-8 at the resort. They are a similar layout to the Ocean view rooms with the exception that instead of a balcony you have a patio with 2 chairs, 2 loungers in the pool, and your swim out pool.

Ultimate Guide to Choosing Your Room at Royalton Saint Lucia
Ok, now that you know the differences between the various areas of the resort including the Diamond Club, Hideaway and standard resort rooms. And we have shown you room tours of the Ocean View rooms and Swim Out rooms it is time to explore each of the 8 buildings on the Royalton Saint Lucia grounds.
Royalton Saint Lucia Building 1 – Diamond Club, Hideaway (Adults Only)
Royalton Saint Lucia Building 1 – The rooms in this adults only building are stunning as they look over the inlet that the resort is situated on. I don’t thinking there is a room with a bad view in the whole building. This building is located next to the Hideaway lobby and steps from the beach, Dorado restaurant. The ground floor offers swim out rooms. If you want to stay in the building you need to be a Hideaway by Royalton Saint Lucia guest AND diamond club.
Royalton Saint Lucia Building 2 – Hideaway (Adults Only)
Royalton Saint Lucia Building 2 is an adults only building with 12 swim out rooms on the ground floor. This building has a total of __ floors and is located next to the Hideaway lobby. It is just a few steps to the beach or the Hideaway exclusive pool and bar.
Royalton Saint Lucia Building 3 – Hideaway (Adults Only)
Royalton Saint Lucia Building 3 is the 3rd adults only building, and I would say offers the best views if you are not in the Hideaway Diamond Club building 1. The angle of this building gives a great view of the beach and water especially from the higher floors. There are also swim out rooms on the ground floor. This is the “farthest” Hideaway building from the beach, but that means that you are only about a 2 minute walk away from the beach.
Royalton Saint Lucia Building 4
Royalton Saint Lucia Building 4 offers swim out rooms on the ground floor and all other floors have rooms with balconies to enjoy the beautiful St. Lucia weather. This is one of 3 standard resort buildings, meaning if you are not staying in Diamond Club or Hideaway this is one of the building options for you.
Royalton Saint Lucia Building 5
Royalton Saint Lucia Building 5 offers swim out rooms on the ground floor and floors 1 through _ have balconies with 2 chairs so you can take in the beautiful sunsets. From building 5 you will have views of the entire resort including pools, and waterline. Building 5 is next to the main resort building where you will find many of the restaurants, buffet, coffee shop and concierge office.
Royalton Saint Lucia Building 6
Royalton Saint Lucia Building 6 is the final of the 3 standard resort buildings at the resort.
