Sandals Resorts International is continuing its rapid Caribbean expansion with another major project in Barbados.
Sandals is planning to open a new Beaches Barbados in the summer of 2020, Sandals Chairman Gordon “Butch” Stewart confirmed to Caribbean Journal through a spokesperson.
The Beaches Barbados project will be a dramatic transformation of the island’s Almond Beach Resort near Speightstown.
Construction is projected to begin in September 2018, according to the company.
It would become the fourth Beaches-branded resort in the Caribbean, along with properties in Turks and Caicos and Jamaica.
Sandals is also readying the debut of the new Sandals Royal Barbados all-suite resort, slated to open Dec. 20.
That property will include 220 suites, along with a 15,000-square-foot Red Lane Spa, four bars and five restaurants.

October is right around the corner which means REGATTA TIME. Yes, the 35th annual interline regatta. Lisa and I have been there the last 3 years and this year will be no different. To say that this is a party is an understatement. Theme parties just about every night. Oh yeah, and there is yacht racing too. Below the picture of the catamaran is the contact information from the Moorings which sponsors the regatta. If interested, check it out.
