Sandals Resorts Announces 3 All New Jamaican Resorts!

Announcing 3 New Resorts

Excellence In Jamaica

We are proud to announce three new resorts coming to Jamaica: Sandals Dunn’s River, Sandals Royal Dunn’s River, and Beaches Runaway Bay. The new Sandals Dunn’s River will receive a top-to-bottom renovation with the adjacent ocean-front land transformed into an additional brand-new resort: Sandals Royal Dunn’s River, a modern luxurious escape featuring 250 lavish rooms and suites. Similar to our resorts in Barbados, exclusive exchange privileges will be available between these adjacent resorts. The all-new Beaches Runaway Bay, located midway between Ocho Rios and Montego Bay, will also be completely re-imagined, featuring over 300 expansive one, two, three and four-bedroom suites. Guests of Beaches Runaway Bay will also have access to Runaway Bay Golf Club and its par-72, 18-hole championship golf course.




“Sandals Dunn’s River holds special meaning to our family because its history is the story of Jamaica’s evolution as a travel powerhouse. 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.”

Re-Imagination And Innovation

Sandals has always been driven by innovation and a passion to make our guests’ vacation all that it can be. Now, Sandals is elevating the all-inclusive experience in Ocho Rios by transforming a newly acquired resort, plus a prime parcel of adjacent beachfront land, into two distinct resort experiences. The expansion plans return the Dunn’s River property in Ocho Rios back to the Sandals family as Sandals Dunn’s River, while the adjacent land will be transformed into a brand-new luxury beach resort, Sandals Royal Dunn’s River.

New Sandals Signature Suites

Sandals Luxury Suite Collection just got a little bit bigger with two brand-new signature suites in Ocho Rios—Sandals first Swim-up Rondovals with Rooftop Terrace and Jamaica’s first Skypool Suites. Our iconic suites-in-the-round not only feature direct access to a river pool from an over-sized patio, but have also received a face-lift—quite literally—with an exposed top deck perfect for soaking up the sun from your Tranquility Soaking Tub™ for two. And romance soars to new heights in our signature SkyPool Suites—luxurious retreats featuring an infinity plunge pool that blends seamlessly with the horizon.

Wellness And Rejuvenation

Naturally available from the depths of Dunn’s River and the Roaring River, water is the inspiration for our new magnificent resorts located in Ocho Rios. Surrounded by banyan trees and limestone, the cascading sounds of water at Dunn’s River Falls produce a calming feeling that is the gateway to relaxation and well-being. Capturing the soothing nature of the falls is at the heart of our all-new resorts, where wellness and nature go hand-in-hand

Natural Spring-Fed Water

Natural Spring-Fed Water

All the water used at Sandals Dunn’s River and Sandals Royal Dunn’s River, including brand-new water elements throughout the resorts, will be sourced from the mineral-rich spring water of the Roaring River. The Dunn’s River Falls are a living testament to Jamaica’s natural beauty and are continuously rebuilt by the sediments in spring water year after year.
