A New Vision of Luxury

November 25, 2016 | By |

Sandals has created new room categories across Jamaica that transform your home-away-from-home into an oasis of spectacular design and elegant comfort with the best views in the world.

 

Sandals Royal Caribbean

From Britain to Bali — exotic adventures in Jamaica

Three new room categories take your vacation to the next level. Over-the-Water Villas hover over the sparkling sea. Romeo & Juliet Suites elevate the romantic getaway. And the new Windsor Beachfront Club Level Rooms directly on the beach transform your vacation into a royal experience. All three rooms feature a Tranquility Soaking Tub for two.

 

Sandals Ochi Beach Resort

Jamaica’s most dramatic luxury all-inclusive resort

This resort captures the true soul of Ocho Rios and celebrates the lush beauty of its rolling mountains and picture-perfect coastline with a new adventurous spirit. It’s a fusion of the French Riviera, with the laid back rhythms of a Jamaican beach resort. Be sure to try the Caribbean’s first speakeasy, the Rabbit Hole.

 

Sandals Negril

A little bit exotic. A whole lot of chic.

Sandals Negril epitomizes the laid-back cool that made Negril the exotic playground it is today. The new Sunset Loft Suites are open and spacious and breathe chic, contemporary design. And the Caribbean Beachfront Walkout Grand Luxe Club rooms and Caribbean Oceanview Luxury Rooms mean the beach life is always near at hand.

 

Sandals Montego Bay

Over-the-Water Villas and Bungalows

November 25, 2016 | By |

Innovative, luxurious and a first of their kind in the Caribbean, Over-the-Water Villas and Bungalows at Sandals Royal Caribbean are changing the all-inclusive game. Perched on a deck floating above turquoise waters, these villas deliver an unforgettable vacation.

Sarah Hartman is Director of Interior Design at Hospitality Purveyors, Inc. She tells how these villas came to be and what makes them so spectacular.

 

What was your design inspiration?

The inspiration was simple but dramatic — to have a chic interior that would open completely to the outside. Colours, feel, everything is all very natural.

 

Were environmental concerns incorporated into the design and production?

Absolutely. The location was chosen in a place that would least disturb the environment. We also added coral gardens under the villas to build up the natural environment further.

 

How did you incorporate Jamaica’s natural beauty?

The rustic feel of the exterior, allowing the natural colours of the sea to repeat throughout, and a large patio that brings the outside in.

 

What are the most exciting features of these villas?

Everything! These villas have so many amazing amenities. Glass floors to view sea life below, a private Infinity Pool, a Tranquility Soaking Tub, and a hammock made for two set right out over the sea.

 

How do you think private boat transfers, butler service and 24-hour room service complement the experience?

Couples will never have to leave their villa, unless they want to! Imagine breakfast served to you as you gaze out to the Caribbean Sea. Sandals private offshore island is adjacent to the villas so lots of options there as well.

 

How does it feel to see these villas come to life?

This project is a designer’s dream come true. It’s truly been a magical experience to watch these villas come alive. I can’t wait for guests to enjoy them.
