Sandals Resorts International, the Caribbean’s leading luxury all-inclusive resort company, announces the grand opening of its second resort here, the all-suite Sandals Royal Barbados. Featuring 222 concierge and butler-level suites, including Sandals’ signature Rondoval, Millionaire Butler, Skypool and Crystal Lagoon Swim-Up suite concepts, the all-new build also introduces three new restaurants, the brand’s first rooftop infinity pool, gentlemen’s barbershop and a four-lane bowling alley.
“Every new resort we develop stands on the shoulders of what came before. We keep getting better and better and for us, right now - Sandals Royal Barbados is a game changer,” said Gordon “Butch” Stewart, chairman and founder of Sandals Resorts International. According to Stewart, Sandals Royal Barbados was designed to complement the adjacent Sandals Barbados, with guests staying at either property having the opportunity to enjoy the amenities of both.
Recognizing the importance of food and beverage to the vacation experience, Sandals Royal Barbados introduces three new 5-Star Global Gourmet signature restaurants - American Tavern, for casual dining in an industrial, modern setting; Asian- fusion Chi, with design inspired by traditional tea rooms and Butch’s Steak and Seafood, a traditional a la carte steak and seafood house. Along with Caribbean, Mediterranean and the French restaurants, Sandals Royal Barbados offers six new restaurants in total, bringing the number of unique dining options available for Sandals Resorts’ guests in Barbados to 17.
The resort also introduces Sandals Resorts’ first rooftop entertainment complex. An oasis featuring stunning 360-degree ocean views, an infinity edge pool with chaise lounge seating, live music, great food and drink including La Parisienne for French bistro fare and the incredible cantilevered cocktail lounge, “Raising the BARbados,” the expansive space says Stewart, “was designed to delight.” In all, Sandals Royal Barbados will feature five bars including the first beer garden, the Lover’s Lane Bar, featuring a selection of international, local and craft beers.
Opportunities available to guests up on the roof are matched by a new, on-demand approach to entertainment at the ground level with the introduction of an all-new entertainment pavilion, featuring a four-lane bowling alley, living room and game room. Other exclusive amenities here include the brand’s very first gentlemen’s only barber shop, a full-service 15,000 square foot Red Lane® Spa, and for guests in select top category suites, Sandals Royal Barbados will also provide private chauffeured Rolls-Royce airport transfers.
Also new to Sandals Resorts and debuting here, The Beach House Resort Shop, a new retail brand curated to bring together the elements of the Caribbean featuring sophisticated resort wear, home goods, local craft and provisions.
For meetings, events and special celebrations, Sandals Royal Barbados offers extensive outdoor and indoor space including The Royal Lawn and a 6,000-square foot conference facility with state-of-the-art technology and in-house catering and event-planning services.
Rates for Sandals Royal Barbados start at $251 per person, per night based on double occupancy. For more information, call your favorite travel agent, 1-800-SANDALS or go to www.sandals.com.
