Both of Sandals Resorts International’s properties in Barbados are open once again, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The all-inclusive company has reopened both its Sandals Barbados and Sandals Royal Barbados resorts, the company confirmed, with both properties welcoming back guests this week.
The reopenings in Barbados are the latest in a broader Caribbean relaunch for the brand, which has now reopened eight of its properties across the region.
Sandals Barbados has a total of 280 rooms; the larger, all-suite Sandals Royal Barbados includes 552 suites, with amenities like the company’s first-ever rooftop pool and bar.
Both are located in the energetic St Lawrence Gap neighborhood on Barbados’ south coast.
“The pandemic has certainly impacted travel and tourism in unprecedented ways but as we continue to open more and more of our Luxury-Included resorts, our optimism for the future continues to grow stronger than ever before,” Adam Stewart, Deputy Chairman of Sandals Resorts International, told Caribbean Journal. “Our valued guests are happy to be back on our beaches and our dedicated team members share that same sentiment of being so very happy to be back to work, doing what they love. After months of preparation, Sandals Royal Barbados and Sandals Barbados are officially open to welcome guests and of course, health and safety are top of mind.”
Both properties have relaunched under the company’s new Platinum ,Protocols of Cleanliness, “in place to ensure that our guests can vacation with the utmost confidence,” Stewart said.
“After spending so many months pent-up inside, the sun, sand, and our 5-star service are ready to be enjoyed as we welcome guests back home to the Caribbean,” he told Caribbean Journal.
