Sandals Barbados’ Planned Expansion Will Now Result in a New Hotel

An American cuisine restaurant will be apart of the new Sandals Royal Barbados

Sandals Resorts has announced its second property in Barbados, Sandals Royal Barbados. This all suite resort is available for booking now for stays beginning December 20.

Travel Agent told you about plans to expand the company’s Barbados property last year. In fact, ground has already broken to add an additional 222 rooms to the existing property. 

However, according to Sandals Resorts chairman, Gordon “Butch” Stewart, “After reviewing the scope of the project, we felt that expanding may compromise intimacy, essential to a romantic setting, and possibly service standards, so we established a management team dedicated exclusively to Sandals Royal Barbados and designed the new resort to complement Sandals Barbados, where in Sandals’ style -  guests may ‘stay at one, but play at two.’”
