Sandals Resorts International’s (SRI) Sandals Royal Barbados  has broken ground on South Seas Village, which will be home to 66 new suites.

The new expansion is slated to premiere on 1 July this year, and will take the total room count at Sandals Royal Barbados to 338, which includes the brand’s signature Rondoval suites, Skypool and Crystal Lagoon Swim-Up suites and Millionaire Butler suite concepts.

South Seas Village will feature two new wellness-inspired eateries, The Greenhouse Restaurant and Heart & Solcafé, taking Sandals Royal Barbados resort’s restaurant count to nine.

With lush gardens and providing access to the pristine, white sand beach of Maxwell Beach, the property will also feature spacious and bright rooms, high-pitched ceilings and chic furnished light-wood finishes with quartz inlay.

SRI executive chairman Adam Stewart said: “Sandals Royal Barbados is the ultimate indulgent resort for couples who are looking for top-of-the-line luxury. We’ve added more suites, restaurants, and pools to elevate our options which further enhance the already incredible guest experience.

“This news comes on the heels of our recent expansion at Sandals South Coast, bringing the world’s first Swim-up Rondoval Suites to Jamaica and a re-imagined beachfront Dutch Village, as well as new properties in Curaçao and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, marking nine Caribbean islands for the Sandals Resorts International footprint. This moment of unparalleled expansion at Sandals Resorts is something we are proud of, as we continue to raise the bar on the Luxury Included vacation experience and support the region we love so deeply. “

It will feature two freshwater swimming pools tucked away in a tranquil section. One swimming pool will have a full-service pool bar providing newly curated low-calorie cocktails.

While staying at Sandals Royal Barbados, guests will have complete exchange privileges with the neighbouring Sandals Barbados, thereby creating a mega-vacation that includes two all-inclusive resorts for the price of one – 20 total restaurants, 14 bars, 11 pools and five whirlpools.
