Sandals Resorts International is planning a major renovation at its Sandals Royal Bahamian resort in Nassau, Caribbean Journal has learned. The property will undergo a multimillion-dollar renovation project ahead of its planned November 4 reopening, according to the company.
The renovation will include a “reimagining” of more than 200 rooms and suites at the Cable Beach-area resort. That’s along with the addition of river suites, along with “several new features and facilities,” according to the company.
The property will remain closed “so as not to intrude upon the guest experience.”
The move comes as Sandals marks the 25th anniversary of its entry to The Bahamas.
“Sandals Royal Bahamian has a storied past and played a starring role in the history of Bahamian tourism, hosting rock stars and royalty, and we pledge our continued commitment to this captivating island,” said Sandals Resorts International Executive Chairman Adam Stewart. “We honor and celebrate our partnership with this great destination, looking forward not only to reopening this fall, but to the future, when together, Sandals and the Bahamas will continue to exceed our guests’ expectations.”
The property has been closed amid the pandemic.
The company said guests with reservations at Sandals Royal Bahamian during its closure will be accommodated at the “available Sandals resorts location of their choice,” including Sandals Emerald Bay.
The company also said it would be assuming all airline change fees.
The other Sandals-branded resort in The Bahamas, Sandals Emerald Bay in Great Exuma, is currently open and welcoming guests. Sandals also owns the Fowl Cay luxe resort, also in Exuma, which reopened last summer.
Sandals will reopen two more resorts, both in Barbados, next month.
