MONTEGO BAY — Sandals Royal Bahamian is getting a multi-million-dollar makeover in celebration of Sandals Resorts International’s 25th anniversary in the Bahamas.
The award-winning hotel, spa and private island located in Nassau will unveil several new features and facilities, including the addition of iconic river suites and the refurbishment of over 200 rooms and suites. It will remain closed while construction is underway and will reopen ahead of the winter season on Nov. 4, 2021.
“Sandals Royal Bahamian has a storied past and played a starring role in the history of Bahamian tourism, hosting rock stars and royalty, and we pledge our continued commitment to this captivating island,” said SRI Executive Chairman Adam Stewart. “We honour and celebrate our partnership with this great destination and are looking forward not only to reopening this fall but to the future when, together, Sandals and the Bahamas will continue to exceed our guests’ expectations.”
Guests with reservations at Sandals Royal Bahamian during its closure will be accommodated at the available Sandals resort of their choice, including Sandals Emerald Bay in Great Exuma, should they wish to keep their reservation in the Bahamas. Sandals Resorts will assume all airline change fees.
In addition to the reopening of Sandals Royal Bahamian, this year will also see the renovation of the brand new Sandals Curaçao, formerly the Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort, marking the company’s first property in Curaçao. Sandals also recently announced its expansion to St. Vincent and the Grenadines with the acquisition of Buccament Bay Spa and Resort. After a complete transformation, it will become the fourth Beaches Resorts property within SRI’s portfolio. An opening date has yet to be released.
