And it won’t be the brand’s last.
Earlier this year, Sandals Resorts International (SRI) announced a new partnership with Marriott International, Inc. to bring AC Hotels by Marriott to Kingston, Jamaica.
This is the first partnership between the hospitality companies and the first time SRI will manage a brand it did not create. The new AC Hotel in Kingston, Jamaica, the partnership’s debut project, is slated to open winter 2019.
According to SRI CEO and Deputy Chairman Adam Stewart, the AC Kingston will offer 220 rooms, a 10,000-square foot conference center and full service restaurant.
As far as the AC Hotel San Juan Condado goes, the hotel will have a 9,000-square-foot rooftop terrace, where the hotel pool, fitness center, yoga flex space and the signature AC Kitchen and Bar will invite hotel and local guests to enjoy views of the city and ocean.
The pool area includes a spacious deck with plenty of seating, where guests may relax and enjoy poolside service. The AC Kitchen will serve European-inspired breakfast each morning featuring freshly baked breads, artisan cured meats, selection of yogurts and cereals, seasonal fruits and local specialties. Tapas, beverages and signature cocktails will be offered daily, along with live entertainment on weekend nights.
For groups and meetings, the hotel offers the AC Meeting Room located in the lobby area, which can accommodate 24-40 people depending on room set up, as well as two boardroom-style "Media Salons" that can seat up to seven people each.
The meeting spaces are furnished with comfortable chairs and tables and audiovisual support can be arranged through the hotel’s sales department. The rooftop and AC Kitchen can also be reserved for weddings, receptions and special events of all kinds.
