Sandals Resorts International has unveiled plans to open their newest luxury resort in Barbados this winter, just in time for the busy winter season. The hotel group will open the Sandals Royal Barbados to holidaymakers on 20th December, 2017.

The luxury resort will have 222 all concierge and butler-level suites in a variety of categories. These will include the hotel group’s signature Rondovals, Millionaire Butler Suites, and Skypool Suites, and there will be Swim-Up suites in the Crystal Lagoon Pool Complex. Guest staying in the top category suites can also enjoy chauffeured Rolls-Royce transfers to and from the airport.

Sandals Royal Barbados will feature a number of firsts, including the hotel group’s first rooftop infinity swimming pool with Parisienne French restaurant and poolside bar. There will also be the first beachfront glass infinity pool, and the group’s fist gentlemen’s only barber shop.

“Sandals Royal Barbados is progressing as it should and will most certainly be open and ready to welcome its first guests, as promised, on December 20th.”

Stated Adam Stewart, the Chief Executive of Sandals Resorts International.

Facilities at the all-inclusive resort will include a full-service Red Lane Spa spanning 15,000 feet, multiple swimming pools, and an entertainment pavilion with a four-lane bowling alley with Lovers Lanes, a lounge area and a games room. Dining options include four restaurants with American, French, Caribbean, Mediterranean culinary delights, and four bars with indoor and outdoor settings.

Another newbie is The Beach House Resort Shop, which will debut at the new Caribbean resort. The new retail brand will sell resort wear, local crafts and souvenirs, home goods, and more.

William Griffith, the Chief Executive of Barbados Tourism Marketing, explained:

“An established brand such as Sandals inspires great confidence in Barbados as a destination as we promote our island’s diverse, high calibre product offerings around the world.

“We are certain that this latest addition to our product profile will bring even more benefits to our tourism economy and we anticipate that this will augment our marketing efforts in all of our major source markets."

Mr Griffith also added:

“New developments like Sandals Royal Barbados will go a long way to keep our destination fresh and top-of-mind with potential holidaymakers, with the assurance that they will still have a safe and unforgettable holiday. Huge kudos to our friends at Sandals.”

Sandals Royal Barbados will be the second of the hotel group’s properties to open in Barbados.
