Sandals Resorts International has completed the reopening of its two all-inclusive Barbados resorts: Sandals Barbados and Sandals Royal Barbados. 

The two resorts officially relaunched this week, meaning the company has now reopened all of its resorts in the Caribbean, with the exception of Sandals Royal Bahamian in Nassau, which is currently in the midst of a renovation project.

Sandals Barbados has a total of 280 suites, while the adjacent Sandals Royal Barbados has a total of 552 rooms. 

The dual-resort complex is home to some unique features for Sandals, including the company’s only rooftop pool and bar and the first-ever Sandals with a four-lane bowling alley, among other touches. 

Sandals Royal Barbados is actually getting bigger, with an expansion project set for completion on July 1. That will add 66 new suites to the resort’s South Seas Villas.

Both are located in the St Lawrence Gap on the always-energetic southern coast of Barbados. 

“It has been too long since guests have been able to experience our incredible Bajan hospitality at Sandals Barbados and Sandals Royal Barbados,” Ramel Sobrino, General Manager for Sandals Barbados and Sandals Royal Barbados, told Caribbean Journal. “The reopening of these two award-winning hotels ahead of the summer season is not just a testament to our industry-leading protocols but to our guests’ continued trust in our brand; and that’s something we never take for granted.”

Sandals was the first major Caribbean resort company to reopen amid the pandemic when it began its regional relaunch in June of last year. That move paved the way for many of the region’s tourism reopening. 

“We look forward to welcoming our guests back ‘home’ this week and soon, expanding our footprint with the introduction of our newest suites and wellness-inspired eateries at Sandals Royal Barbados,” Sobrino said.
