Sandals Adds Celestial Experience At Its Newest Resort

To celebrate the summer solstice, Sandals Resorts has announced its very first Stargazing Concierge at the completely reimagined Sandals Dunn’s River in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

The luxury all-inclusive resort company is inviting guests to embrace this planetary new offering included with a stay in the resort’s new Coyaba Sky Villa Swim-up Rondoval Suites.

The recently debuted Sandals Dunn’s River ushers in a new era of hospitality and many ‘Sandals Firsts,’ including the brand’s first open-air rooftop suites complete with state-of-the-art telescopes to now the debut of Sandals’ first Stargazing Concierge.

Guests who reserve a stay in a Coyaba Sky Villa Swim-up Rondoval Suite for travel beginning July 1, 2023, will be met with their very own Stargazing Concierge, a complimentary new Butler service offering. Upon request, the Stargazing Concierge will arrange bespoke stargazing experiences for couples to enjoy on their private rooftops.

Beyond creating a romantic respite under the stars, the Stargazing Concierge will also help guests identify constellations and meteor activity in the Caribbean sky. To commemorate their trip, Sandals is providing couples staying in the villas with a complimentary custom star map of their personal stargazing experience, created by The Night Sky.*

The new stargazing service offered by Sandals is research backed. Earlier this year, a recent survey conducted by the Sandals Institute of Romance cited that the vast majority of couples (80%) want to prioritize romance this year, with beach vacations (67%) and secluded places (57%) being the preferred settings for connection.

Deryk Meany, General Manager at Sandals Dunn’s River, said: “We are constantly listening to our guests and looking for additional ways to give them that ‘stellar’ stay. Creating the perfect cozy Caribbean evenings – from moonlit cocktails to wine and cheese pairings to  decadent dessert offerings under a canopy of stars, creates a new moment to relax and connect while staying with us.”

Offering unmatched views of the Ocho Rios skyscape, the Coyaba Sky Villa Rondoval Suites reinvent the state of romance and luxury with private soaking tubs, a sun-lounging area, and direct access to a sprawling river pool. Guests checking in to Sandals Dunn’s River will also delight in 12 Global Gourmet™ restaurants – with 10 concepts entirely new to the Sandals brand – as well as nine bars, including Dunn’s Rum Club, where the island’s signature libation is shaken and stirred into authentic, expertly mixed craft cocktails. Located on a stunning stretch of white sand beach, the 260-room resort welcomes guests to a remarkable luxury all-inclusive experience on Jamaica’s north coast.
