Sandals was one of the first to reopen resorts in the Caribbean over the last few months and more will be reopening soon.
In a recent virtual conference regarding the Comeback of Caribbean Tourism, Adam Stewart, Deputy Chairman for Sandals Resorts International, mentioned that they’re seeing strong demand for 2021 and they want to get back to giving people the vacation of a lifetime. Encouraging words for a comeback.
The resorts that had already reopened include Sandals Grande Antigua, Sandals Montego Bay, Sandals Royal Caribbean, Sandals Negril, Sandals Grande St. Lucian, and Regency LaToc, Sandals Royal Barbados, and Sandals Barbados.
Additional protocols and cleanliness standards were added to the health and safety measures already in place to create Platinum Protocols of Cleanliness.
These protocols begin the moment guests arrive at the airport and continue all throughout each property with 18-touchpoints including digital menus and 12 cleaning protocols for suites that even use a UV Led Light to validate cleanliness.
The brand also uses #BackToHappy now that they’re reopening and welcoming guests.
“If there’s an upside to this, it’s seeing the faces of team members and their sheer happiness to be back to work.” Stated Gordon “Butch” Stewart, Chairman of Sandals Resorts. “At the start of the year, travel was more accessible than ever, and as an industry, we were reporting record occupancies. Despite it all, we made a promise that when it was time to return, we would come back stronger and better than ever before.”
