The All-New Sandals Grande Riviera in Jamaica

We recently received an update on Sandals Grande Riviera Beach Resort in Jamaica. it was sent to us by Mr. Gary Sadler of sandal Resorts, and we felt compelled to share it with you:

I’m thrilled to introduce to you Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica – the newest resort in Jamaica.   Certainly many of you are familiar with this resort as Sandals Ocho Rios, but the transformation has been of such a grand scale, the enhancements so impressive, we had to give it a new name.    

Three distinctive vacation experiences await you:  an oceanfront garden oasis called the Riviera Seaside, the hill-top Great House and Riviera Villas, and the hip new Ochi Beach Club.  

Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort is very close to my heart; my connection to the hotel is personal.  As you may know, I began my career at this hotel, and I’ll let you in on a little secret: it is by far my favorite resort.  And I remain absolutely amazed by the transformation the resort has undergone, especially on the Riviera side.

Who better to head up the $60 million expansion than General Manager Brian Roper, one of the resort’s first general managers.  He knew the resort best and had dreamed of what it could become.  Back then, I worked for Brian at this very resort and although he had many opportunities to fire me, I’m very glad he didn’t! Together we take great pride in this new resort and it is a pleasure for me to personally present it to you now – bigger and better than ever. 

I invite you to now take a journey through the photos below. You’ll see the resort like you’ve never seen it before.  

Already Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort has been named one of the top hotels in the Caribbean by Condé Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice Awards, and just recently TripAdvisor has awarded it a Certificate of Excellence. 

But you must experience it for yourself.  Make it a priority to enjoy your next vacation at Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort.  Then start enjoying the newest and hottest resort in Jamaica – the resort that offers more than any other in Jamaica.
