Sandals completes renovations at Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort

Sandals Resorts is celebrating the completion of the chic and luxurious renovations at Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort. 

After completing nearly $60 million in renovations, the resort now offers the most compelling and diverse experience anywhere in Jamaica.

On offer are the all-new Riviera Beach Club, featuring chic, lounge-like amenities at both the beach and pool areas; the Riviera Villas, offering the most lush, romantic accommodations on island; exciting new culinary experiences; and a refurbished Red Lane Spa.

“We are thrilled to welcome guests back to the newest and most spectacular resort in Ocho Rios,” said Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, chairman of Sandals Resorts.

“As the premier resort in Jamaica, we want to ensure our guests have the best possible experience, and that means offering the highest-quality amenities in the most pristine location, which is exactly what guests will find at Sandals Grande Riviera.”

Set on one of the most magnificent beaches in Jamaica, Sandals Grande Riviera features three distinct resort areas – the Riviera Seaside, Riviera Great House and Riviera Villas – each with a different ambiance and personality.

As part of the renovation, guests will find refreshing updates in all of the 529 upgraded resort rooms and suites throughout the three resort areas, including the newest and most luxurious suites on Jamaica’s north coast, The Riviera Villas.

For those seeking a romantic escape, guests can choose from private villas boasting new stylised interior tiling with glass and mosaic accents and newly landscaped surrounding gardens or for those holidaying with friends and family, guests can choose from private villas with shared pools, including newly refinished pool decks adorned with new teak patio furniture.

Found tucked in the lush mountainside, these newly renovated Villas now feature updated soft furnishings, perfecting the look and feel of these secluded hideaways.

Sandals Grande Riviera also unveiled a brand-new beachside lounge, the Riviera Beach Club - Jamaica’s most exclusive spot featuring chic white Balinese cabanas, a winding grotto pool and direct access to Ocho Rios’ most spectacular beach. 

Flanked by the Caribbean Sea, the boardwalk area of the Beach Club features a series of romantic fire pits, as well as an upgraded multi-level observation deck offering dining options and secluded escapes for a private tranquil retreat.

For guests who prefer to spend their time at the beach, additional cabanas are available for those in select suites, with butlers available to provide fresh fruit, drinks and fulfil requests from guests.

Guests looking for a little extra pampering can find it at the resort’s newly updated Red Lane Spa, featuring a new relaxing colour scheme and redesigned plunge pools, decorated with Indonesian panelling and coral stone coping.

Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort was recognised as Jamaica’s Leading Resort by the World Travel Awards in 2011.
