Ground broken on multi-million dollar "Sandals Barbados Phase II" expansion project

Construction of the expansion of Sandals Resorts International’s Dover Beach property in Barbados has officially started after ground was broken earlier this month. The resort’s “Sandals Barbados Phase II” expansion project is scheduled to be completed by November, 2017.

The multi-million dollar project will add 222 guest rooms and suites to the all-inclusive resort in Barbados, bringing a total of 502 rooms available to holidaymakers. This will make it the largest Sandals resort in the Eastern Caribbean.

Sandals Barbados Dover Beach has been open for two years, and the expansion is underway to keep up with the demand of increasing visitors, following successful occupancy levels so far at the property. According to Richard Sealy, the Minister of Tourism, at least 20,000 of the 590,000 visitors travelling to the island nation in 2015, stayed at Sandals Barbados.

The luxury resort is situated on the south side of Barbados, on the site of the former Couples Resort in St Lawrence. Guests can choose from three accommodation categories, including Ocean Village, Crystal Lagoon Village and Caribbean Village with swim-upriver suites and suites with private butler service.

Facilities at the Caribbean hotel include a modern fitness centre, the brand’s signature Red Lane Spa with six treatment rooms, a collection of gourmet restaurants, and an amphitheatre that overlooks the beautiful Dover Beach.

The “Sandals Barbados Phase II” will also bring an array of new upscale facilities to the site. These include seven swimming pools, five restaurants, a new spa and wellness centre, an entertainment centre with a main stage for concerts, and a new conference and meeting facility which spans 10,500 square feet.

Situated in the North Atlantic Ocean, Barbados is an island nation that has become a popular destination for the rich and famous. The island is home to a variety of hotels, apartments and accommodation options that cater for all ages and all budgets.

The country boasts some of the Caribbean’s most picturesque natural landscape, including powder-soft white sandy beaches, thriving nature parks, and the cobalt sea with thriving coral reefs where divers and snorkelers can swim alongside colourful and diverse marine creatures.

Some of the island’s leading tourist attractions include the Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary, and the historic towns of Holetown, Speightstown, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site and capital of Barbados, Bridgetown. During their stay, holidaymakers can shop in Bridgetown’s high end boutiques, wander around traditional craft markets, visit museums and art galleries, or take a stroll up to the 17th Century Garrison.
