Sandals Resorts Unveils Renovated Jamaican Resort

Sandals Resorts has re-launched its resort in Jamaica, Sandals South Coast. Formerly known as Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa, the reimagined Luxury Included resort unveils recent renovations that embrace and incorporate the natural beauty of the 50-acre property’s beachfront setting. 

The multi-million renovation project includes an expansion of Sandals Resorts’ new over-the-water concept: an addition of 12 overwater bungalows accessible via a heart-shaped pier; Sandals’ first dedicated over-the-water bar called Latitudes complete with hammocks suspended above the Caribbean Sea; a floating, ocean-based swim up bar called Bar-Tender; and an over-the-water wedding chapel with breathtaking 360-degree views and a glass-floor aisle – a grand entrance to the wedding chapel via boat is available. 

Additional completed renovations include upgrades to the resort’s existing five restaurants as well as four new 5-Star Global Gourmet dining options: Sushi on the Sand; Beach Picnic, an option for romantic picnics on the beach; Jerk Shack, with open-air seating and rustic vibe that serves authentic jerk dishes; and Schooner’s, which serves Caribbean fare.

The Italian Riviera, formerly known as the Italian Village, which was completed this month, houses 112 rooms and suites with upgraded room categories including:

  • Italian Beachfront One Bedroom Butler Suite – The Love Nest Suites are located on the first four floors of the Italian Riviera and have a spacious master bedroom with a handcrafted four-poster king-size bed and large smart TV.
