Sandals Resorts International will open its first resort on the Caribbean island of Curacao.
It will take over the Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort.
This will mark the ninth island destination for the brand in the Caribbean region.
The new Sandals Curacao will initially include 350 rooms and suites stretched along the Spanish Water Bay and the Caribbean Sea, with a further expansion planned in the coming years.
Beginning in 2021, conceptual plans for the resort include adding key elements for the signature Sandals experience, including new expansive pools, a variety of five-star Global Gourmet dining options and "lavish accommodations", including newly constructed River Suites.
Guests will also have access to the neighbouring 18-hole Pete Dye championship golf course, two onsite marinas and 38,000-square-feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space - the largest on the island.
The resort will add more than 1,200 local jobs, comprised of 800 new team members, and 400 local tradespeople and craftspeople.
Roald Smeets, director of the Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort, said: "Sandals’ position as both a hotel operator and owner, with the ability to attract regular scheduled airlines from North America, distinctly marks it out from other hotel groups.
"We found its impressive plans for the site and dedication to building the profile of Curacao as a world-class tourism destination particularly compelling.
"Its future investment into the community will reinvigorate the tourism market."
Sandals Resorts International deputy chairman Adam Stewart, added: "Each time we expand, we bring with us the full potential of our 40-years in hospitality.
"The new Sandals Curacao embodies our philosophy of forward-thinking and looking through a new lens.
"It is a promise not only to our guests but to our team members for continued innovation. Curacao is a place to be discovered, and we are so proud today to become part of this community."
