Sandals Royal Caribbean welcomes first Over-the-Water Villas

Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort & Private Island in Montego Bay, Jamaica, has welcomed its first guests to experience the brand’s flagship Over-the-Water Villas.

At the same time, Sandals has announced the development of additional Over-the-Water suites at new locations throughout the region.

Citing unparalleled demand and a drive toward continued innovation, the suites will be unveiled at select Luxury Included resorts throughout 2017 and 2018, including 12 additional Over-the-Water Bungalows at Sandals Royal Caribbean slated to open in March 2017.

“I have always said that being out on the water is where I am happiest, and with these suites, guests can experience a direct link to the Caribbean Sea,” said Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, chairman, Sandals Resorts.

“Being first is nice, and as a category leader we’ve enjoyed a lot of firsts – but what is more important is that we continue to evolve, continue to innovate, continue to upend the notion of what an all-inclusive can be and of course, continue to exceed the expectation of our guests.”


The first of their kind in the region, the recently opened Over-the-Water Villas at Sandals Royal Caribbean convey an intimate connection to the Caribbean Sea and represent a new level of innovation for the Luxury Included company.

Each of the five villas has a different design, representing the Feng Shui elements: Wood, Water, Fire, Earth and Metal, illustrated through unique elements from warm wooden pendants and underwater art pieces to mirrored and metallic accents.

Merging the interior and exterior spaces through multiple expansive glass doors, couples can admire the majestic beauty of the ocean from their private infinity pool, over-the-water hammock, glass floor panels or the suite’s stylish king-size beds made from teak and adorned with soft Egyptian linens and plush pillows for the ultimate sleep.

Beyond the views, guests staying in the newly debuted Villas have access to unparalleled services and exclusive amenities from 24/7 butler service to personalised in-room dining, private yoga classes and direct resort access via a “Royal Duffy” luxury boat.

Located on the northern shores of Jamaica, Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort & Private Island is a mere ten minute drive from Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport.
