Sandals Resorts International has added 48 luxury suites to its Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort & Private Island in Jamaica.

The rooms complete renovation work at the resort in Montego Bay, which started in December 2019. They bring the total number of rooms at the resort to 280.

Three new restaurants have opened at the resort as part of the overhaul and 36 rooms across the Caernavon and Arundel buildings have been refurbished last year. New cabanas, fans, lighting, an outdoor shower area and jacuzzi have also been added to the South Pool and surrounding area.

The 48 suites can now be booked for stays from December 15, 2021. They are made up of two room types and are located in a new four-storey Cheques building in the resort’s Caribbean Village.

There are 12 Crystal Lagoon hideaway swim-up club level junior suites with ‘patio tranquility soaking tubs’ and 36 Crystal Lagoon hideaway junior suites with ‘balcony tranquility soaking tubs’. Seven nights all-inclusive at the latter, including return flights, cost from £1,935 for selected dates between September 1 and October 21, 2022, booked by April 6.


The 12 junior suites on the ground floor offer swim-up pool access from a private outdoor patio for the first time for club level guests at the resort. The suites are fitted out with a king-size bed, fully stocked in-room bar, and a bathroom with shower.

The other 36 suites are on floors two to four and offer garden and pool views from private balconies which include a ‘tranquility tub’ for two, private curtain and bistro dining set. The rooms offer a large seating area and high definition smart TV.

Guests staying at the new suites will have access to the Club Sandals lounge and concierge services, which handle private check-in and all-day room service.

The British-inspired resort, famous for its over-the-water bungalows and villas, offers nine five star restaurants, a spa, water sports and an exclusive private island.
