“Sandals Royal Barbados is progressing as it should and will most certainly be open and ready to welcome its first guests, as promised, on Dec. 20,” said Stewart, adding that the new resort is a “game changer” for the company.

Sandals Royal Barbados will offer 222 concierge and butler-level suites, including the brand’s signature Rondovals, Millionaire Butler Suites and Skypool Suites, along with an extensive Crystal Lagoon Pool Complex including Swim-Up Suites.

Amenities will include the brand’s very first gentlemen’s only barber shop, a full-service 15,000 square foot Red Lane Spa, four bars offering unlimited premium spirits and five signature dining establishments including French, Caribbean and Mediterranean cuisines, as well as new American and Asian-fusion concepts.

Anticipation is high for the new resort, says William ‘Billy’ Griffith, CEO of the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (BTMI). “An established brand such as Sandals inspires great confidence in Barbados as a destination as we promote our island’s diverse, high calibre product offerings around the world. We are certain that this latest addition to our product profile will bring even more benefits to our tourism economy and we anticipate that this will augment our marketing efforts in all of our major source markets.”

New developments like Sandals Royal Barbados will go a long way to keep Barbados fresh and top-of-mind with potential holidaymakers, with the assurance that they will still have a safe and unforgettable holiday, said Griffith: “Huge kudos to our friends at Sandals.”

Sandals Royal Barbados will also introduce the brand’s first-ever rooftop infinity pool, complete with La Parisienne French restaurant and a poolside bar, as well as an entertainment pavilion featuring a four-lane bowling alley, living room and game room that Stewart says were designed to foster on-demand entertainment, available as the customer wishes.
