As Sandals Resorts International (SRI) continues its development of resorts across the Caribbean, the hotel chain has broken ground on the expansion of Sandals Royal Barbados, just in time for the summer season.

According to release from SRI, the renovated resort will premiere on July 1, 2021, with Sandals Royal Barbados’ South Seas Village adding 66 new suites and bringing the total room count to 338.

“Sandals Royal Barbados is the ultimate indulgent resort for couples who are looking for top-of-the-line luxury. We’ve added more suites, restaurants, and pools to elevate our options which further enhance the already incredible guest experience,” said Adam Stewart, executive chairman of Sandals Resorts International.

“This news comes on the heels of our recent expansion at Sandals South Coast, bringing the world’s first Swim-up Rondoval Suites to Jamaica and a re-imagined beachfront Dutch Village, as well as new properties in Curaçao and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, marking nine Caribbean islands for the Sandals Resorts International footprint. This moment of unparalleled expansion at Sandals® Resorts is something we are proud of, as we continue to raise the bar on the Luxury Included® vacation experience and support the region we love so deeply,” he added.

A new beginning

Upon completion the new facilities at the Barbados resort will include the brand’s signature Rondoval™ suites, Skypool and Crystal Lagoon Swim-Up suites, and Millionaire Butler suite concepts; two new wellness-inspired eateries, The Greenhouse Restaurant and Heart & Sol café, bringing the resort’s impressive restaurant count to nine; and two new relaxing pools.

Guests staying at Sandals Royal Barbados will also have full exchange privileges with the neighbouring Sandals Barbados, creating a mega-vacation that includes two all-inclusive resorts for the price of one — 20 total restaurants, 14 bars, 11 pools and five whirlpools. 

Sandals Royal Barbados is now accepting reservations for these accommodations for arrivals beginning July 1, 2021.
