A Sandals Legacy Resort!

Plan a trip to Sandals Dunn River Resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and wake up to the intoxicating rhythm of reggae music surrounded by the smell of freshly brewed local coffee from the Blue Mountains. Your to-do list for the day includes soaking up the Caribbean sun, drinking a cocktail made with local rum, and indulging in mouth-watering jerk dishes. The resort is a five-star, all-inclusive property located on the island's north coast, surrounded by an abundance of rushing waterfalls and forests with meandering rivers. Handpicked by the founder of Sandals Resorts, the allure of this magical island paradise will pull you in and guarantee an unforgettable vacation.

Sandals founder Gordon "Butch" Stewart personally selected the location of the brand new Sandals Dunn River Resort, which opened in May 2023. The resort was the last project Stewart was personally involved in before passing in 2021. Stewart grew up on the shores of Ocho Rios, Jamaica. He spent his early days selling fish to local resorts and playing on the island's pristine beaches. In a way, Sandals Dunn River Resort was the culmination of the tourism giant's legacy.

Stewart's Jamaican roots are infused into every aspect of the resort. The water that flows through the resort comes directly from the natural reserves of Dunn's River Falls. The resort's modern design encapsulates stunning views of the surrounding rainforest and Caribbean Sea. The SkyPool Suites feature a balcony-wide pool with impressive ocean views. The Coyaba Sky Rondoval Villas, the first of their kind, features an oversized swim-up pool and a breathtaking open-air terrace. The Tufa Terrace SkyPool Butler Suites have an apartment feel and are decorated with art by local artists. In addition to the 260 state-of-the-art room accommodations, Sandals Dunn River Resort offers 12 specialty restaurants, nine bars serving premium liquors, and a culinary concierge desk ready to assist with guests' special dietary requirements.

Designed for couples, Sandals Dunn River Resort is an unforgettable honeymoon destination. The resort's pristine stretch of white sand beach is perfect for a hand-in-hand sunset stroll. The Sky Villa Rondoval Suites offer couples a private rooftop hideaway and soaking tub, providing unparalleled intimacy and romance. Furthermore, Sandals Dunn River Resort guests enjoy full exchange privileges with Sandals Ochi Beach Resort, meaning access to a total of 28 restaurants and 20 bars. Couples can explore the natural wonders surrounding the resort, take yoga classes at the open-sided pavilion, or enjoy a round of golf at the nearby Upton Estate Golf and Country Club. The resort's award-winning Red Lane Spa offers Caribbean-inspired treatments and features a hidden pool perfect for a private swim. 

Known as Jamaica's "capital of adventure," Ocho Rios offers countless opportunities for cultural immersion, exploration, and discovery. A short ride from Sandals Dunn River Resort lies the famous Dunn River Falls, breathtaking 180-foot-high and 600-foot-long mountain waterfalls made from tufa terraces with lagoon pools formed by freshwater springs cascading onto the Caribbean Sea. With so much to do, having a travel expert in your corner is vital when visiting Jamaica. Contact a Fairy Godmother Travel Agent today and start planning your dream Sandals vacation today!
