Sandals Resorts has announced plans to expand its five-star Royal Plantation brand with the 2010 opening of the 130-unit Royal Plantation Dragon Bay in Port Antonio, Jamaica.The opening will follow a US$100 million expansion and high-end redevelopment programme, scheduled to begin early 2009. Sandals has owned the property and site of the Dragon Bay Hotel for several years. The property will market itself as a spa with a hotel. Accommodations will include new construction on the site of the former hotel and villa units of the bluff side of the resort. Five or six styles of guest accommodations will be offered, from one-bedroom suites to five-star treehouses.
