MONTEGO BAY — Beaches Ocho Rios has officially reopened its doors following a temporary closure due to the global pandemic.
Situated on 22 expansive acres in the heart of Jamaica and boasting 222 rooms and suites, Beaches Ocho Rios has long been regarded as a favourite getaway for families and friends. And now with the Beaches Platinum Protocols of Cleanliness in place, guests can be assured their getaways will be safe and worry-free.
“Families have been through a lot over the past year. From navigating virtual school and work simultaneously to being away from loved ones, the Beaches team is here to give them the vacation they have been dreaming of,” said Adam Stewart, Executive Chairman of Sandals Resorts International.
“With both vaccinations and confidence in travel trending upward, families can now choose between three Beaches Resorts, which all feature the highest levels of health and safety, and all of the activities and amenities that make for an unforgettable vacation experience,” he added.
Enhanced health and safety measures are now in place across all guest touchpoints at the resort, from the moment guests arrive through to the full resort experience, including all watersports and land sports activities, gourmet dining experiences, the Red Lane Spa and more. Beaches Ocho Rios is home to Pirates Island Waterpark, seven 5-Star Global Gourmet restaurants and five pools, and is located adjacent to the Sandals Golf & Country Club.
Further reinforcing its commitment to worry-free travel, Beaches Resorts is also providing all guests departing back to Canada, the United States and the U.K. with complimentary on-site COVID-19 testing to help meet global travel requirements.
Beaches Resorts enjoys some of the highest guest return rates in the industry, said Stewart, thanks to initiatives like the Book with Confidence program, which automatically adds travel protection plan insurance to a reservation when booking now through Aug. 31, 2021, for travel until Dec. 31, 2022.
Sandals Resorts also announced last July that a new Beaches property is coming to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the eighth island in the Caribbean for the brand. Taking over the currently closed Buccament Bay Spa and Resort, the new property will undergo extensive renovations to become the fourth Beaches resort within the portfolio. An opening date has yet to be announced.
