BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Friday March 17, 2017 – What started out as an expansion of Sandals Barbados will now end in the opening of a whole new resort.
Sandals Resorts has announced that it will open a Sandals Royal Barbados – its second resort on the island – on December 20.
Sandals chairman Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewarts explained why.
“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.”
Sandals Royal Barbados’ rooms will all be concierge and butler-level suites, including the brand’s signature Rondovals, Millionaire Butler Suites, and Skypool Suites.
Amenities will include a full-service 13,000-square-foot Red Lane Spa, four bars offering unlimited premium spirits and five of the brand’s signature dining establishments including American, French, Chinese-Japanese Fusion, Caribbean and Mediterranean cuisines.
Also, set right next to Sandals Barbados, Sandals Royal Barbados will be a part of the “Stay at One, Play at Two” Exchange Programme where guests will be able to access both resorts’ amenities.
The resort will also debut a 6,000-square-foot conference facility.
