Sandals Relaunches Bahamas All-Inclusive After $55 Million Renovation

By: Alexander Britell - January 27, 2022

Sandals Resorts International has officially relaunched its Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort on Nassau’s Cable Beach. 

The 404-room property, set on a 15-acre site, has reopened following a dramatic $55 million renovation. 

“The new Sandals Royal Bahamian encompasses a new era in travel, inviting our guests in love to connect with the vibrant culture, natural wonders, and authentic traditions of the beautiful Bahamas — and in turn reconnect with each other,” said Sandals Resorts Executive Chairman Adam Stewart. “We have a long history in the beloved Bahamas and it’s simply one of the most beautiful places on Planet Earth. It’s what lured our founder and my father, Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, to this illustrious setting over 26 years ago.”

The new-look resort has a host of upgrades and new additions.

That includes everything from a new Butch’s Island Chop House restaurant and Mr. B’s bar; new beachfront swim-up butler and club level suites and “entirely new” concepts from 13 restaurants. 

The resort has also added the “Island Village,” a group of standalone villas named after Bahamian cays, each with private pools and outdoor Tranquility Soaking Tubs. 

Sandals has refreshed the property’s East and West Bay accommodations, including new beachfront Butler Suites with swim-up pool access. 

The culinary changes range from La Plume, a French eatery, to Kanoo, short for Junkanoo, which features “pan-Caribbean spices.”

Sandals Royal Bahamian is home to its own private offshore island, rebranded Sandals Barefoot Cay, accessed by a new boat called Love Runner. 

The island has a pool bar with ocean swings, an infinity-edge jacuzzi and a new seafood restaurant called Aralia House. 

The relaunch is timed with Sandals’ ongoing celebration of the company’s 40th anniversary. 

“At Sandals Royal Bahamian, we honor our celebrated past, while surprising our guests in entirely new ways,” Stewart said. 

Sandals Royal Bahamian is one of two Sandals all-inclusives in The Bahamas, along with Sandals Emerald Bay in Great Exuma. 

“I am extremely delighted to see the expansion of the Sandals brand and the reopening of the Royal Bahamian property,” said Bahamas Prime Minister Philip Davis. “Not only does this translate into jobs for our people but it further diversifies our tourism product and hotel inventory as we are rebounding from this pandemic. So far the numbers have been encouraging and no doubt with the Sandals Royal Bahamian property back, we expect the growth to continue. I salute Adam Stewart for continuing his father’s visionary leadership.”
