Sandals Resorts International’s second property in Barbados, the Sandals Royal Barbados, is set to open its doors to guests on December 20th, in time for the Winter Season. The new hotel will offer 222 all concierge and butler-level suites, bringing the company’s number of rooms on the island up to a total of 502.
Located adjacent to the Sandals Barbados, in the St Lawrence Gap area on Dover Beach, the new resort will offer a full-service 15,000-square ft 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.
Other amenities include an extensive crystal lagoon pool complex including swim-up suites, an exclusive barber shop for men and an entertainment pavilion (four-lane bowling alley, living room and games room).
The Sandals Royal Barbados will also debut a 6,000 sq. ft. conference facility equipped with meeting aids such as a projector screen, microphone with stand, basic internet and more.
Commenting on recent developments, Sandals Chairman, Gordon “Butch” Stewart said;
“After reviewing the scope of the project, we felt that expanding may compromise intimacy, essential to a romantic setting, and possibly 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.”
