Sandals Barbados expansion project changed to become second separate luxury resort

The expansion of the Sandals Barbados Resort has now been changed to create a completely new resort. Sandals Royal Barbados will be built in place of the expansion of the existing resort and is due to open in December, 2017.

The Chairman of Sandals Resorts International, Gordon “Butch” Stewart, explained that new resort in Barbados will complement the existing one. Facilities at both luxury resorts will also be accessible for all Sandals guests.

“After reviewing the scope of the project, we felt that expanding may compromise intimacy, essential to a romantic setting, and possible service standards, so we established a management team dedicated exclusively to Sandals Royal Barbados and designed the new resort to complement Sandals Barbados where, in Sandals’ style, guests may stay at one but play at two.”

Stated Mr Stewart.

Accommodation at Sandals Royal Barbados will be 222 butler-level and concierge suites, including the luxurious Rondovals, Skypool Suites, and Millionaire Butler Suites. The suites will feature an indoor dining table, writing desk, sofa, smart TV, a butler pantry, fully-stocked wet bar with premium spirits, balconies with a Tranquillity Soaking Tub for two, and bathrooms with Carrara marble vanity stations with backlit mirrors, freestanding bathtubs, and separate showers with frosted-glass.

During their stay, guests can enjoy access to onsite facilities including multiple swimming pools, four bars, and five dining venues with diverse American, French, Chinese-Japanese, Mediterranean, and Caribbean culinary delights. There will be a 6,000-square-foot conference facility, and guests can enjoy replenishing treatments at the 15,000-square-foot Red Lane Spa with its upscale facilities and therapies.

Sandals Barbados is located 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. The resort also boasts a Red Lane Spa, several gourmet restaurants, and an amphitheatre that overlooks the pristine Dover Beach.

Sandals Resorts International was founded in 1981 following the launch of its first resort in Jamaica. The group owns and operates numerous all-inclusive luxury hotels and resorts across the Caribbean, in tropical island destinations such as St Lucia, Jamaica, Turks and Caicos, Antigua, Grenada, and The Bahamas.
