Two new Sandals resorts.
TWO NEW SANDALS RESORTS. Gordon "Butch" Stewart, chairman
of Sandals and Beaches Resorts, unveiled details of two new Sandals
Resorts at a June 30 press conference in New York City. Set on 50 acres
of lushly wooded headland at Parker's Bay in the parish of
Westmoreland, the 360-room Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa
(to open in Feb. 2005) is the first resort development in the uncharted
South Coast region of Jamaica. When Sandals Grande Ocho Rios Beach &
Villa Resort opens in Dec. 2004 it will become the largest of the
Sandals Resorts, offering 529 rooms and suites. Sandals has a total of
12 couples-only properties, including seven in Jamaica, three in St.
Lucia, one in Antigua and one in Nassau, Bahamas. Details: 1-800-SANDALS
