Sandals Resorts reaches agreement over two new Barbados resorts
Sandals Resorts International has announced that it has reached an agreement with the government of Barbados to open two new resorts on the Caribbean island. The hotel group will open the Couples Resort in St Lawrence as a Sandals Resort and manage a brand new Beaches Resort that will be built on the site of the former Almond Beach Resort.
Sandals Resorts International just very recently has reached a commercial agreement with the government of Barbados to operate two new beach resorts in the beautiful Caribbean country.
The deal will see the luxury hotel group open the Couples Resort in the beautiful St Lawrence Gap in the parish of Christ Church as a Sandals Resort, as well as manage a new Barbados resort that will be built right on site of the former Almond Beach Resort.
Gordon 'Butch' Stewart, Chairman of Sandals Resorts, stated:
"We are delighted to announce the opening of, not one, but two of our first ever resorts in this wonderful country of Barbados. Barbados and its people are so rich in culture, charm and personality and has been one of the leaders in Caribbean tourism for decades."
"We have been in discussions to bring our award-winning brands to this country for some time and are thrilled that negotiations have now been successfully concluded."
The former Couples property is located on ten acres of land and will open as Sandals Barbados on 6th November, 2013. The new Sandals hotel will honour all existing booking for tourists who have booked Barbados holidays at the Couples Resort.
Sandals Barbados will offer 280 luxury beachfront and garden-view guest rooms and suites and it will feature all of the hotel group's signature Sandals amenities and services.
Speaking about the new Sandals Barbados Resort, Mr Stewart said:
"In the former Couples Resort, I strongly believe that we have acquired one of the most beautiful properties in the entire island and we cannot wait to bring the full Luxury Included experience here."
Sandals Resorts has also reached an agreement with the Barbados government to build a brand new Beaches property on the site of the former Almond Beach Resort in St Peter, Barbados.
Sandals Resorts International owns and operates several luxury Caribbean hotels and resort in destination including St Lucia, Jamaica, Turks and Caicos, Antigua, and The Bahamas.
Barbados is a Caribbean island located in the North Atlantic Ocean, north east of Venezuela. The country is a hotspot for celebrities including Simon Cowell and Cliff Richards who have luxury residences on the island.
The tropical island boasts some of the world's most stunning pink sandy beaches and during holidays to Barbados tourists can play golf on world-class courses, go snorkelling and scuba diving in turquoise warm ocean waters, explore nature reserves such as the Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary, and take excursions to Holetown, Speightstown, and the UNESCO World Heritage site of Bridgetown.
