Sandals to open renovated Bahamas resort in January

Sandals Resorts International (SRI) is to reopen the Sandals Royal Bahamian on January 27, 2022, after a multimillion-dollar revamp.

The all-inclusive resort in Nassau, in the Bahamas, will feature more than 200 fully renovated rooms and suites, plus new river suites.

New additions include the Island Village – with butler-style villas, each named after an island in the Bahamas, and with their own private pool – and a secluded private island, Sandals Barefoot Cay.

The new Coconut Grove lounge area offers live music and entertainment, and three food trucks.

Adam Stewart, SRI executive chairman, said: “From an entirely new village of pastel-coloured private villas and Coconut Grove, our innovative new outdoor lounge and entertainment area, to our offshore island that has been transformed to a romantic hideaway, every moment, every point of guest touch and experience embodies this beautiful destination.”

Plans for the revamped resort began almost three years ago and are part of a larger strategy across the organisation, to “authentically reflect the unique Caribbean destinations where Sandals Resorts operates”.

Sandals Royal Bahamian will offer five new restaurants when it opens in January: La Plume for French cuisine; traditional British pub The Queen’s Pearl; Kanoo for Caribbean cuisine; Butch’s Island Chop House for steaks, fish fillets and seafood; and fresh sushi spot, Soy.

In total, the resort will offer 13 dining options.
