Sandals Resorts Unveils Plans for Reimagined Sandals Royal Bahamian in Nassau - Opening January 2022

Updated: Nov 21, 2021

Following a multi-million-dollar transformation, Sandals Resorts International (SRI) revealed plans for its completely reimagined all-inclusive resort in Nassau, Bahamas, the all-new Sandals Royal Bahamian. Designed to celebrate the easy-going spirit of the Bahamas with locally inspired experiences and a thoughtful approach to luxury, Sandals will open its renovated resort for the winter season beginning Jan. 27, 2022.

“We’re dialing up the luxury and leaning into the easy-going spirit of the Bahamas to deliver an incredible and authentic experience that, as we like to say, makes love come easy,” said SRI Executive Chairman Adam Stewart. “From an entirely new village of pastel-colored private villas and Coconut Grove, our innovative new outdoor lounge and entertainment area to our offshore island that has been transformed to a romantic hideaway, every moment, every point of guest touch and experience embodies this beautiful destination. We can’t wait to welcome guests back to Nassau and to the new Sandals Royal Bahamian.”

According to Stewart, plans for the reimagined Sandals Royal Bahamian have been in the works for nearly three years and are part of a much larger strategy across Sandals to authentically reflect the unique Caribbean destinations where it operates in design, product offerings and style of luxury service. The reimagined Sandals Royal Bahamian will feature:

All-New Suites & Island Village: Sandals Royal Bahamian has elevated its array of accommodation options with the addition of the brand’s iconic river suites in the freshly named East & West Bays, including more than 200 fully renovated rooms and suites and the all-new Island Village. The new pastel-colored village was inspired by the Bahamian archipelago and features butler style villas each named after an island in the Bahamas with their own private pool.

Coconut Grove: A new addition to the property is Coconut Grove, an expansive lounge area extending Bahamian beach vibes to the center of the resort both day and night. Shaded by coconut palms, the new setting boasts chic seating options, live music and entertainment, views of the sea and three all-new food trucks. Guests can grab a sweet treat or coffee at Sweets n Tings, indulge in locally inspired Bahamian fusion cuisine and fresh seafood at Coco Queen, or opt for an Italian classic at Bahama Mamma Mia.

A Private Island Hideaway: Deserted beaches and colorful coral reefs await at the resort’s secluded private island, Sandals Barefoot Cay. Couples can sail to the island hideaway and spend the day reconnecting on the quiet shores featuring a beach bar, whimsical seating, outdoor shower and new restaurant, Aralia House, serving up fresh seafood from boat to table and authentic Caribbean delicacies.

Early Check-Ins & Traditional Evening Ritual: For early arrivals, Sandals Royal Bahamian welcomes early check-ins with its new programming, The Breakaway. Upon arrival, a dedicated hostess will lead guests to the relaxation lounge with a signature cocktail in-hand so they can freshen up and head straight to the pool while the check-in process is taken care of. At sunset, couples can participate in a traditional conch blowing ritual said to welcome love and good fortune. The ritual is accompanied by rake and scrape music and Bahamian cocktails with a sea breeze.

New Dining Options: Sandals Royal Bahamian will introduce five new restaurants when it opens this winter, including La Plume for French cuisine; a traditional British Pub The Queen’s Pearl; Kanoo for cuisine celebrating the Caribbean region; Butch’s Island Chop House for hand-cut steaks, fish fillets and seafood prepared to order; and fresh sushi spot Soy. The all-new Sandals Royal Bahamian will boast a total of 13 dining options.
