    Sandals Resorts Changing the Game with New Resort Enhancements

    Sandals Resorts Changing the Game with New Resort Enhancements

    Sandals Resorts is a game changer. Touting the reputation of setting the standard for all-inclusives, Sandals Resorts has appropriately coined their own distinct category – Luxury Included – and they are working hard to live up to their standard. With such an elevated distinction from their competitors, there is always an anticipation of ‘what’s next’ when it comes to Sandals Resorts. Whether it’s a new dining concept added to the repertoire or unlimited watersports for a true Caribbean experience, with Sandals Resorts, innovation is constant.

    With the recent openings and enhancements of Sandals Ochi Beach Resort, Sandals LaSource Grenada Resort & Spa and Sandals Barbados, the travelling world saw that Sandals Resorts new direction can be described in one word – chic!

    Through these three resorts, Sandals launched a new trendy design palate of trendy features with romance at the forefront, including fresh marble finishes and on-balcony tranquility soaking tubs. Anticipating high guest expectations and the new luxury benchmark for Sandals, it wouldn’t be right for only three of the brand’s 15 resorts to enjoy the splendor of innovation, so the enhancements continue! Enter Sandals Negril Beach Resort & Spa and Sandals Montego Bay.

    So, just what is to be expected from Sandals Resorts’ newest enhancements? Well, the Coconut Blocks at Sandals Negril, which consist of 64 rooms and suites, are currently undergoing a complete transformation. The building is expanding to allow for more spacious guests rooms and bathrooms, along with other new amenities and features – all receiving the new Sandals chic stamp of approval.

    Guests of the butler- and concierge-level suites will experience all new patios with beautiful coral stone floors, outdoor bathtubs and dining tables to relax and unwind. The butler suites are being transformed into newly designed loft suites with a unique, contemporary floating staircase that connects the first and second level. Both the butler and concierge suites will receive brand new comfortable, modern furniture, smart TVs, built in bars and more.

    Additionally, all of the standard rooms are being expanded in size and redesigned. These rooms will be completely refurbished as well with new furniture, smart TVs, soft goods and bathrooms.

    At the brand’s flagship resort, Sandals Montego Bay, guestrooms will receive a fresh new look with new bathroom flooring, tiles and porcelain vanities. All countertops and shower benches will be redone with Carrara Marble, and the furniture will receive tweak wood finishes.

    These upgrades come as part of Sandals Resorts International’s (SRI) continued evolution of its brands.  With investments slated to continue to be unveiled throughout the year, SRI has built a reputation for creating timeless vacations through exceptional service and amenities. Get excited, these resorts are luxury personified with accommodations that are the quintessential nest for two people in love.
