Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort has welcomed its first guests following a $55m renovation.

Sandals Executive Chairman Adam Stewart said: “The new Sandals Royal Bahamian encompasses a new era in travel, inviting our guests to connect with the vibrant culture, natural wonders, and authentic traditions of the beautiful Bahamas — and in turn, reconnect with each other.

“We have a long history in the beloved Bahamas and it’s simply one of the most beautiful places on planet Earth. It’s what lured our founder and my father, Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, to this illustrious setting over 26 years ago.”

The resort’s new Butch’s Island Chop House restaurant and adjacent Mr B’s bar have been designed in honour of the Sandals founder.

Also new are…

Island Village

The new Island Village is comprised of standalone villas named after remote Bahamian cays, which represent the provincial Bahamas in pink, blue and white accents with striped awnings. Butler Villa Suites each have private pools and outdoor Tranquility Soaking Tubs.

The refreshed East and West Bay accommodations offer a dynamic array of room and suite categories, including beachfront Butler Suites in the East Bay, where a new Infinity Swim-Up pool ends where the sand begins.

The West Bay has an entirely new zero-entry Swim-Up pool, whilst the Penthouse Love Nest Butler Suites showcase panoramic ocean views from a private balcony. Neutral colour palettes and wood furnishings create a modern and chic design, which beautifully accentuates the bright blue Caribbean Sea.

New food concepts

Guests can feel the rhythm of the music and savour pan-Caribbean spices at Kanoo, with a  new a la carte lunch option, while La Plume serves exquisite French cuisine in a modern atmosphere.

Additional temptations include steak and seafood specialties at Butch’s Island Chop House, hearty British fare at The Queen’s Pearl, Southern Italian favourites at Tesoro, and the sushi at Soy.

There are also three gourmet food trucks: Sweets n Tings; Coco Queen and Bahama Mamma Mia. New signature cocktails are on the menu at the new Mr. B’s. 

Beachfront lounge

The new Coconut Grove is a lush and expansive beachfront lounge shaded by coconut palms, where guests can find the new gourmet food trucks as well as live music and entertainment.

Private island hideaway

Deserted beaches and colourful coral reefs await guests at the resort’s secluded private island, SandalsBarefoot Cay, located just one mile from the shore.

Couples can sail aboard the resort’s new Love Runnerboat and spend the day reconnecting on the quiet shores featuring a pool bar with swings, an infinity-edge jacuzzi, outdoor shower and new restaurant, Aralia House, serving up fresh seafood and authentic Caribbean delicacies.

Red Lane Spa

The resort’s Red Lane Spa welcomes guests back to three serene locations: the Main Spa, the Day Spa and the Offshore Escape – Zen Garden on Sandals Barefoot Cay. Spa facilities include two saunas and two steam rooms, plus two new couple’s rituals in celebration of Sandals’ 40th anniversary.

New wedding options  

Three brand new and exclusive wedding ‘inspirations’ have been added, including the Barefoot Wedding set directly on the sand at a variety of resort locations, including the private island and the Bahamian Wedding, accompanied by the sounds of a Bahamian gospel choir.

Holiday prices can be secured with a £175-pp deposit, with the full balance due 71 days before departure.

Agents can book online or by calling the call centre on 0808 164 3459 or agency sales enquiries on 0207 590 0210.
