Sandals Whitehouse Construction Well Under Way

With an average year-round hotel occupancy rate of 85 percent across its six Sandals properties in Jamaica, the opening of Sandals Whitehouse, planned for autumn 2004, looks set to attract even more spa-goers to the picturesque Southern Coast of Jamaica.

“Our occupancy numbers show there is a demand for more rooms in Jamaica promising the Sandals quality. We are delighted to bring the undiscovered Southern Coast into the Sandals family and look forward to guests enjoying this true jewel,” said Gordon “Butch” Stewart, Chairman and CEO of Sandals Resorts International. “The quiet side of the island offers numerous natural attractions and lush tropical fauna bringing the mountains and sea together harmoniously as only Jamaica can do. We look forward to offering a Sandals playground like no other.”

Sandals Whitehouse will offer 360 rooms, including 54 luxurious suites, all of which will have oceanfront views, king-size, four-poster mahogany beds and Jamaican artisan-crafted furnishings. The extensive spa facilities at the property will include: The Sandals Signature Spa, offering a host of a la carte services and total treatments; hot and cold plunge pools; a beauty salon; four freshwater swimming pools, with one dive training pool; three whirlpools; and a state-of-the-art air-conditioned fitness centre with juice bar and aerobics room.

Located on the virtually untouched South Coast and 90 minutes from the Donald Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, Sandals Whitehouse is set on 45 sprawling acres of wooded forest at Parker`s Bay, Westmoreland. The resort lies on a large, private white-sand beach with over half a kilometer offering sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea surrounded by tropical greenery and landscaped courtyards.
