Sandals Royal Bahamian reopens following a multi-million-dollar transformation

The award-winning, Luxury Included® Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort and Offshore Island welcomes its first guests today following a $55 million dollar renovation, the first of a series of milestones in this commemorative 40th anniversary year for the Sandals Resorts brand.

Situated on 15 sprawling acres, the 404-room Sandals Royal Bahamian embraces the easy-going spirit of the Bahamas from the pastel pink of the flamingo to the vibes of traditional Junkanoo. From basking in new Beachfront Swim-Up Butler and Club Level Suites to trying new culinary concepts at a choice of 13 restaurants, guests can enjoy a combination of authenticity and luxury at Sandals Royal Bahamian.

With great offers available now for holidays in 2022, 2023 and 2024, and room options to suite every taste, travel agents can book their clients’ holidays to the all-new Sandals Royal Bahamian today. Holiday prices can be secured and guaranteed now with a £175 per person deposit, with the full balance due 71-days before departure.


"The new Sandals Royal Bahamian encompasses a new era in travel, inviting our guests in love to connect with the vibrant culture, natural wonders, and authentic traditions of the beautiful Bahamas — and in turn, reconnect with each other,” said Sandals Resorts’ Executive Chairman, Adam Stewart. “We have a long history in the beloved Bahamas and it’s simply one of the most beautiful places on Planet Earth. It’s what lured our founder and my father, Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, to this illustrious setting over 26 years ago. We’ve added special elements throughout the resort to impart his legacy to the setting we’ve created here. Our new Butch’s Island Chop House restaurant and adjacent Mr. B’s bar, for example, both give a nautical nod to his love for the sea, and even his iconic blue and white striped shirts served as the aesthetic inspiration. At Sandals Royal Bahamian, we honour our celebrated past, while surprising our guests in entirely new ways.”

An Island Village Painted in Pastels, Swim-Up Suites and More

The new Island Village is comprised of standalone villas named after remote Bahamian cays, which represent the provincial Bahamas in pink, blue and white accents with striped awnings. Butler Villa Suites each have private pools and outdoor Tranquility Soaking Tubs™. The refreshed East and West Bay accommodations offer a dynamic array of room and suite categories, including beachfront Butler Suites in the East Bay, where a new Infinity Swim-Up pool ends where the sand begins. The West Bay has an entirely new zero-entry Swim-Up pool, whilst the Penthouse Love Nest Butler Suites showcase panoramic ocean views from a private balcony. Neutral colour palettes and wood furnishings create a modern and chic design, which beautifully accentuates the bright blue Caribbean Sea.


Savouring the Bahamas and Beyond

Sandals Royal Bahamian elevates Nassau’s culinary scene with 13 fresh restaurant concepts. Guests can feel the rhythm of the music and savour Pan-Caribbean spices at Kanoo – short for Junkanoo – with a new “Brasserie 30” à la carte lunch menu. Inspired by the alluring feathers of the national bird, La Plume serves exquisite French cuisine in a modern atmosphere. Additional temptations include steak and seafood specialties at Butch’s Island Chop House, hearty British fare at The Queen’s Pearl, Southern Italian favourites at Tesoro, and the freshest sushi at Soy. Three eclectic gourmet food trucks will delight guests with sweet treats and coffee at Sweets n Tings; locally inspired Bahamian fusion and fresh seafood at Coco Queen, and a new twist on Italian classics at Bahama Mamma Mia. New signature cocktail menus create the perfect opportunity to toast to new romantic experiences, such as the Glass Flask Banana Bread Old Fashioned at the new Mr. B’s

Tropical and Trendy: The All-New Coconut Grove

Resort life dances to a new beat with the addition of Coconut Grove, a lush and expansive beachfront lounge shaded by coconut palms, perfect for daytime lounging. Coconut Grove offers a base for the new food trucks, which are open from 11am – 11pm, chic seating options plus live music & entertainment into the late evening hours.

A Private Island Hideaway

Deserted beaches and colourful coral reefs await guests at the resort’s secluded private island, Sandals Barefoot Cay, located just one mile from the shore. Couples can sail aboard the resort’s new Love Runner boat and spend the day reconnecting on the quiet shores featuring a pool bar with swings, an infinity-edge jacuzzi, outdoor shower and new restaurant, Aralia House - serving up fresh seafood and authentic Caribbean delicacies.

Red Lane Spa

The resort’s Red Lane® Spa welcomes guests back to three serene locations: the Main Spa, the Day Spa and the Offshore Escape – Zen Garden on Sandals Barefoot Cay. Spa facilities include two saunas and two steam rooms, plus two new couple’s rituals in celebration of Sandals’ 40th anniversary: Love & Trust, and Forever in Love.

Exclusive Wedding Inspirations

Three brand new and exclusive wedding ‘inspirations’ capture the authentic Bahamian vibe for brides and grooms. The Conch Pearl Wedding utilises the signature pink spiral shell as an accent, whilst the shoe-optional Barefoot Wedding is set directly on the sand at a variety of resort locations, including the private island. The Bahamian Wedding is set in a lush tropical garden, accompanied by the sounds of a Bahamian gospel choir. A customary conch blowing ritual will conclude special guest events and weddings at the resort, welcoming love and good fortune.
