In honour of the late, legendary Gordon “Butch” Stewart’s birthday, Sandals Resorts International (SRI) on June 6 began accepting reservations for the fully renovated Sandals Dunn’s River in Ocho Rios. The resort will welcome guests on May 24, 2023.
“Today is marked with very special intention, as we accept reservations for Sandals Dunn’s River in honour of our founder and my late father, Gordon “Butch” Stewart’s birthday — just a small homage to him that we know will make him smile,” said Executive Chairman of SRI, Adam Stewart.
“This was an extraordinary project and the last I worked on with him as his final masterpiece. He handpicked this location more than three decades ago for its white-sand coastline, cool breeze, azure waters and its close proximity to the destination’s archetypical falls. It will not only serve to breathe new excitement into a corner of Jamaica loved and cherished by so many, but it will set a new standard of luxury for tourism right here in our backyard with a next-generation resort worthy of its nostalgic past.”
The wholly reconceptualised and fully renovated Sandals Dunn’s River is making its long-wished-for return to the Sandals portfolio. It does so in spectacular fashion with first-of-its-kind suite designs, exclusive restaurant concepts and bars, and entirely new ways to experience Jamaica’s natural wonders. Beloved by couples since its initial addition to the all-inclusive resort company’s portfolio in 1991, Sandals Dunn’s River will return as a brand new resort, reclaiming its edge as the pinnacle of Sandals luxury.
The all-new 260-room Sandals Dunn’s River is undergoing a thoughtful, top-to-bottom restoration — designed to embrace the essence of Jamaica, its curving rivers, lush forests, and majestic banyan trees — with amenities, accommodations and culinary concepts brought forward by the brand’s uncompromising quest for innovation.
“Ocho Rios is the place where my father grew up, where he first learned to fish and felt the breeze blow along the West-facing beach and where he first saw the pure joy of the island on the faces of visitors,” said Stewart. “Here along Jamaica’s North Coast, he witnessed a blossoming tourism industry and became aware of how to please and serve a new Caribbean customer. Every touch point at the new Sandals Dunn’s River is designed to do that and more.”
