Breaking News - Press Releases

Sandals Resorts International (SRI), parent company ofSandals Resorts, Beaches Resorts and Grand Pineapple Beach Resorts, is pleased to announce the purchase of LaSource Resort in Grenada for an undisclosed sum. The agreement to acquire the resort was successfully reached after ongoing discussions with the Government of Grenada and represents the brand’s first property in this Eastern Caribbean country.

Sandals Resorts Chairman, Gordon “Butch” Stewart commented, “After looking to expand here for more than a decade, we are delighted to confirm the acquisition of our first ever resort in Grenada and are incredibly proud to have found the perfect location to add to our brand. We are confident that guests will continue to be impressed by our tradition of exceeding expectations through innovation and unwavering service, which has become our standard across the Sandals Resorts brand. We are eager to make our debut and share with guests not only the beauty of our new resort, but to share the beauty of Grenada, its culture and its people.”

The property, which is located on the exclusive Pink Gin Beach and surrounded by the azure waters of the Caribbean on three sides, will become Sandals LaSource Grenada Resort & Spa and will open following certain enhancements customary to the Sandals Resorts brand. Once complete, the resort will have added nearly 100 rooms to offer a selection of 200 guestrooms, private cottages and bungalows, many of which will be concierge and butler-level suites, including the brand’s signature Rondoval suites. According to Stewart, each of the resort’s “magnificently-appointed” luxury accommodations will be “extremely spacious” and all will feature room service.

The resort’s enhancements will also include some of the brand’s signature dining establishments such as the beachfront Neptunes, the delectable gourmet pastries and coffee creations of Café de Paris, authentic Caribbean and Creole cuisine at Spices, and other popular restaurants with Japanese, Italian and French influences. Other amenities will include an expansive new infinity pool and swim-up bar; a fully-equipped fitness center, a full-service Red Lane® Spa, plus a number of entertainment lounges including a library and piano bar.

The newly announced property will be the fourteenth Sandals Resort in the Jamaican-based company’s portfolio. Stewart credits the government of Grenada not only for their investment in the Sandals brand, but also for their effectiveness in bringing this partnership to fruition. “This has been nearly a 12-year search to grow our roots in the Spice Island. It is our distinct pleasure and honor to foster the expansion of tourism to this jewel in the Caribbean,” Stewart said.

Sandals Royal Caribbean Welcomes Prince Harry!


Sandals Resorts International's (SRI) Chairman, Gordon 'Butch' Stewart, greets Prince Harry of Wales with a smile as SRI's CEO, Adam Stewart, looks on.

Members of Jamaica’s Defense Force welcomed Prince Harry of Wales to the island recently with an honorary 21-gun salute. The Prince visited the island as part of the Diamond Jubilee tour in honor of Queen Elizabeth II as she celebrates 60 years on the throne.

With hype still buzzing in the air about the Prince’s stylish blue suede shoes and epic race with Olympic Gold Medalist, Usain Bolt, he was a hit, to say the least!

The prince, who made earlier stops in the Bahamas and Belize, received a warm welcome from the Jamaican people, as many gathered just to catch a glimpse of Princess Diana’s heir. During his trip to Jamaica, he also stopped off at 18th century plantation house, Good Hope, and visited Sandals Royal Caribbean’s Private Island in Montego Bay for a Jamaica Night soiree held in his honor.

 Hoffman Estates, Illinois – On December 9, 2011, Sandals Resorts International invited Mitchell Lange to join the inaugural class of the exclusive Chairman’s Royal Club. In keeping with the company’s longstanding tradition of support and recognition of its travel agent partners, a select group of top travel agents who have continuously produced results and showcased loyalty to the resort brand have been invited into the Chairman’s Royal Club.
