Jamaica-based hotel chain Sandals Resorts International has announced the development of its first-ever Swim-up Rondoval Suites and reimagined Dutch Village at Sandals South Coast, while unveiling renovated rooms at Sandals Royal Caribbean.

The all-inclusive Sandals Resorts today officially unveiled the swim-up Rondoval Suites and completely reimagined 112-room beachfront Dutch Village at its Jamaican escape, Sandals South Coast, located in Whitehouse, Westmoreland. In addition to the resort update, Sandals announced a second resort upgrade as Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay officially unveiled its renovated poolside rooms across its Caernarvon and Arundel buildings.

The company said the first-ever Swim-up Rondoval Suites at Sandals South Coast are Jamaica’s newest and most secluded luxury accommodations, with each suite featuring zero-entry swim up access, a private plunge pool, and an outdoor Tranquility Soaking Tub for two.

This is in addition to the Sandals Resorts’ new signature Serenity Swing with scenic views.

The suites are in the brand new South Seas Village situated on one of the longest swim-up pools in the western hemisphere at 17,040 sq. ft.

Fully renovated Dutch Swim-Up Village

To round out Sandals South Coast’s portfolio of romantic upgrades, the secluded Westmoreland retreat also debuted the fully renovated Dutch Swim-Up Village, setting the scene for modern relaxation inspired by the sea. The new village boasts 112 magnificent, beachfront rooms with outdoor Tranquility Soaking Tubs for two.

The free-standing tubs come with a separate shower in select categories and direct swim-up pool access for select rooms, offering a romantic escape.

Continuing the renovation momentum, Sandals Royal Caribbean also unveiled a sweeping array of enhancements with the renovation of 36 rooms across its Caernarvon and Arundel buildings for guests to enjoy.

Located in the resort’s Caribbean Village and joining the new Sandringham building introduced earlier this year, Sandals said the newly renovated poolside rooms feature custom furniture and Tranquility Soaking Tubs for two. There are also new bathrooms and more enhancements that completely update and modernise the rooms, offering guests the most luxurious accommodations possible.

Complemented enhancements at Sandals Royal

Additional enhancements at Sandals Royal Caribbean include developments to the South Pool and surrounding area, including a new Jacuzzi, new cabanas with outdoor fans and lighting, and a new outdoor shower. 

The announced renovations come on the heels of three recently introduced restaurant concepts at Sandals Royal Caribbean, including Spices – which brings Pan-Caribbean favourites to the table for an authentic island restaurant experience; Bombay Club – which offers authentic Indian cuisine from dishes like Butter Chicken, to delicious vegan and vegetarian options like Aloo Gobi; and La Tavola – which allows guests to share in the comfort, cuisine and camaraderie found in an Italian dining environment.

These enhancements add to each resort’s already cutting-edge architectural design features, including the intimate and lavishly designed Over-the-Water Bungalows at both Sandals South Coast and Sandals Royal Caribbean, as well as the sought-after Over-the-Water Serenity Wedding Chapel, brand-new Wedding Garden venue and Latitudes Overwater Bar at Sandals South Coast, offering guests numerous vacation choices.
