Swim-up suites feature as part of a multi-million dollar revamp of Sandals South Coast resort in Jamaica.

A 112-room Dutch Village will also be re-designed with direct access to two new expansive swim-up pools.

A modern wedding venue is being added to the garden in the resort’s Italian Village.

The 20 swim-up Rondoval suites will be positioned on a 17,040 sq ft pool – claimed to be the longest in the western hemisphere – and become available along with the Dutch Village from December 10.

The rest of the Sandals Resorts International all-inclusive property is set to reopen on October 1.

Company chairman Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart said: “Sandals South Coast is one of the most beautiful destinations in the uncharted land of Jamaica.

“Our goal is to exceed expectations time and time again, and the new Sandals South Coast will do that and more.

“The resort, which is nestled within a lush 500-acre nature preserve, along crystal blue waters was our inspiration for this incredibly expansive project.

“We can’t wait for our guests to experience these new, luxurious innovations.”

Rates for seven nights in a Rondoval Swim-Up Butler Suite with private pool start at £3,399 per person including return economy Virgin Atlantic flights from Heathrow between May 1–June 27 next year.
