Sandals to open all-inclusive resort.

The 404-room Sandals Royal Hicacos Resort & Spa will open Jul. 16 in Varadero, marking the second Cuban property to be managed by Sandals Royal Resorts of Jamaica. Company officials say the Royal Hicacos will be the first five-star, all-inclusive "couples-only" resort in Cuba.

Among other amenities, it'll boast four gourmet restaurants, five bars, a nightclub, three swimming pools, three tennis courts, a fully equipped fitness center and spa, and an array of water sports including water-skiing, diving and sailing. Sandals already has 10 resorts--in the Bahamas, Antigua, Jamaica and St. Lucia--while a subsidiary, Beaches, runs an all-inclusive family resort in Varadero.

The Royal Hicacos is geared toward European tourists, with 7-night packages costing 1,299 [pounds sterling] per person; similar packages for Beaches Varadero start at 949 [pounds sterling] per person. The new resort is splashed all over Sandals' U.K. website at www.sandals.co.uk--but interestingly, not a word about it appears on the hotel chain's U.S. website at www.sandals.com.
