TRAVEL NEWS (press release) 15 July 2022: On the north coast of Jamaica rivers meander through lush forests to cascade into refreshing waterfalls. This exuberant natural beauty is the backdrop for the brand new Sandals Dunn's River resort, which opens its doors next May.
Just last month, Sandals Resorts celebrated the opening party of Sandals Royal Curaçao, a luxury resort on the beautiful Santa Barbara Estate on Curaçao. The successful luxury-included hotel chain announces a further expansion of its portfolio on the island where it is rooted, Jamaica. Located in Ocho Rios and inspired by Dunn's River and the falls of this river. All this under the motto 'let life flow'.
Sandals Dunn's River
Sandals Dunn's River distinguishes itself with completely new types of suites and exclusive restaurant and bar concepts. The Tufa SkyPool Butler Suites are nothing short of spectacular, suites with glass-paneled plunge pools that create an infinity effect with the Caribbean Sea. The culinary offer is worldly and with 12 restaurants very extensive. From the authentic Jerk Shark to L'Amande – a restaurant leaning on French culinary traditions but surprising because of the combination with Jamaican dishes and all in a chic setting. Greek, Asian, Italian, South American cuisines: the best in the world can be found in this beautiful place in Jamaica. And everything is included.
Nine bars offer enough variety to enjoy another beautiful day with a cocktail in hand, of course all inclusive. At the hip and sophisticated Dunn's Rum Club, the island's specialty is shaken and stirred into authentic Jamaican cocktails, expertly blended with other locally sourced ingredients such as coconut. Play a game of Jamaican dominoes and the experience is complete. The best place to catch the gentle sea breeze is Ocarina, the first rooftop bar of the Sandals resorts in Jamaica.
Let Life Flow
The many water features in the resort originate from natural springs. The resort features the largest swimming pool in Jamaica, shaped like a meandering river. The pool has a glass edge that extends into the sand, creating the effect “water meets sand meets ocean”. It is one of five refreshing pools to cool off under the warm Jamaican sun. Red Lane Spa at Sandals Dunn's River will be one of Sandals' most luxurious spas, capturing the essence of Jamaica. The sound of the Dunn's River and Roaring Waters River flowing into the spa's pools completes relaxation.
