~Luxury Included® Resort Undergoes Renovations and Re-Launches as Sandals South Coast ~
MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica, – December 12, 2016 – Sandals Resorts announces the re-launch of its award-winning resort in Jamaica, Sandals South Coast. Formerly known as Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa, the totally reimagined Luxury Included® resort unveils recent renovations that embrace and incorporate the natural beauty and bounty of the 50-acre property’s stunning beachfront setting in Jamaica’s South Coast region.
“With this re-launch, we have brought our most innovative ideas and concepts to absolutely reimagine the guest experience,” says Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, Chairman and Founder of Sandals Resorts International. “The results further embody the beauty of the region embracing the incredible beach and water this resort boasts nestled within 500 acres of nature preserve.”
This multi-million renovation project includes Sandals’ first, dedicated over-the-water bar called Latitudes, where guests can enjoy their cocktails in hammocks suspended above the Caribbean Sea; a floating, ocean based swim up bar called Bar-Tender where guests can enjoy cocktails right in the ocean; and an over-the-water wedding chapel with breathtaking 360-degree, panoramic water views and a glass floor aisle. Brides and grooms will have the option to make a grand entrance on their special day by arriving to the wedding chapel in style via boat.
Additional completed renovations include upgrades to the resort’s existing five restaurants as well as four new 5-Star Global Gourmet™ dining options: Sushi on the Sand; Beach Picnic, an option for Butler guests to have a romantic picnic on the beach; Jerk Shack, an open-air seating and rustic vibe dining option which serves authentic jerk dishes; and Schooner’s, which serves Caribbean fare.
All accommodations at Sandals South Coast are ocean-facing allowing guests to maximize their enjoyment of the beach and waters including some of the most memorable sunsets in Jamaica.
