Sandals Dunn's River Reservations Now Open for Arrivals Beginning May 24, 2023

After the opening of the brand new Sandals Royal Curacao, Sandals Resorts announced that reservations are now open for the wholly re-conceptualized and fully renovated Sandals Dunn's River in Jamaica beginning May 24, 2023! 

The company unveiled what's next for this adults-only, all-inclusive favorite: from first-of-its-kind suite designs to jaw-dropping and NEW restaurant concepts and bars. Beloved by couples since its initial addition in 1991, Sandal's Dunn's River will return as a brand new resort design to embrace the essence of Jamaica. With 260 rooms and top-to-bottom restoration, Dunn's River is going to be the new favorite, I think.

"Today is marked with very special intention, as we accept reservations for Sandals Dunn's River in honor 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." - Adam Stewart, Executive Chairman of SRI

Sandals & Beaches Resorts are always some of my favorites, because you know you are going to have a luxury experience that's also all-inclusive. Everything including gourmet dining, alcohol, water sports, and entertainment are included in your hotel rate. Once you get a taste of all-inclusive, you may never go back!
