Sandals to open Caribbean’s first over-the-water suites Nov
(CMC)– Sandals Resorts International is pumping US$5.5 million into five of the Caribbean’s first over-the-water suites and the renovation of 14 suites at Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay.
Dubbed Sandals Royal Caribbean Spa Resort and Offshore Island, the suites are scheduled to be opened in November this year.
“We are proud to again be trailblazers in the market, targeting discerning travellers who yearn for luxury with a closer connection to nature,” said Sandals Royal International Chief Executive Officer Adam Stewart.
Located on a private island offshore the main resort, the suites stretch across 1,600 square feet of land and will boast glass flooring, allowing guests to view the ocean and marine life below.
What’s more, the flooring will also light up at nights, allowing continuous views of the ocean. Each suite will feature a private outdoor jacuzzi tub and shower, a hammock, and steps leading from the sundeck straight into the Caribbean Sea.
Other amenities include an authentic Thai restaurant and casual beachfront grill, a pool with a whirlpool and swim-up pool bar, and a private beach.
“The addition of the over-the-water suites ensures that Sandals will be positioned, not just as a leader in all-inclusives, but at the top end of the industry, pushing boundaries and setting new standards,” Stewart said.
While rates have not yet been set, the resort is off to a great start with numerous guests already making bookings.
Sandals and Beaches resorts have earned a worldwide reputation for providing quality holidays, weddings and honeymoons at their more than 20 luxury-included resorts in seven Caribbean islands.
The Jamaican company continues to win multiple awards, including the prestigious World Travel Awards.
