Would you rather stay in the picturesque over-the-water bungalows complete with glass floor views to the ocean or the brand new luxurious rondoval swim-up suites at Sandals South Coast?
That was the topic of debate among several travellers on site at the newly renovated and expanded resort in Jamaica.
The top verdict?
A split stay between the two offering the best for both worlds, naturally.
“Our brand new South Seas Rondoval Village [has] 20 beautifully appointed rondoval bungalows along the world’s longest lagoon, which makes them Sandals’ first swim-up rondovals,” Adrian Whitehead, General Manager of Sandals South Coast, told Travel Courier during an interview on location in Jamaica. “Plunge pools on the outside, spa bathrooms on the inside, immaculately appointed, and comes with our butler service, which is just incredible — and they’re all completely full. That’s the story of our life for at least the next six months from what I can tell.”
Notably, the South Seas Rondoval Village — located on a swim-up river pool with over 17,000 sq. feet of water — isn’t the only new addition to the resort.
There’s also the upgrades to the Dutch Village, which have transformed this section of the property.
“We took the opportunity to virtually demolish it during COVID and put it back together again,” explains Whitehead. “We extended every single balcony, placed a tranquility tub on every single one, gutted every single room, refurbished the inside, modernized it, we made the ground floor from one end to the other swim-up suites, we reworked the Dutch Village pool bar and the beach so the whole boulevard there just looks incredible.”
