Sandals and Beaches have unveiled plans for three new hotels in Jamaica.
The company will transform two all-inclusive resorts acquired last year – the former Jewel Dunn’s River Beach Resort & Spa in Ocho Rios and Jewel Runaway Bay Beach Resort & Waterpark, plus a parcel of beachfront land adjacent to the Ocho Rios resort, into “three distinct experiences under the Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts brands”.
“Sandals Dunn’s River holds special meaning to our family because its history is the story of Jamaica’s evolution as a travel powerhouse,” said executive chairman Adam Stewart.
“My father grew up on the beach in Ocho Rios and this hotel, the first of its kind when it was built in the 1950s, captured the era’s glamour and sparked his imagination.
“When it became available, we jumped at the chance to bring the hotel back into the Sandals fold.”
