Sandals South Coast's new Latitudes over-the-water bar

Sandals Resorts has announced the re-launch of Sandals South Coast in Jamaica, formerly known as Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa.

Located in Jamaica’s South Coast region, the 50-acre beachfront property recently underwent a multi-million renovation project to “incorporate the natural beauty” of the region.

“With this re-launch, we have brought our most innovative ideas and concepts to absolutely reimagine the guest experience,” said Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, chairman and founder of Sandals Resorts International. “The results further embody the beauty of the region embracing the incredible beach and water this resort boasts nestled within 500 acres of nature preserve.”

The upgraded and rebranded resort featues Sandals’ first, dedicated over-the-water bar called Latitudes, where guests can enjoy their cocktails in hammocks suspended above the Caribbean Sea; a floating, ocean-based swim-up bar called Bar-Tender where guests can enjoy cocktails right in the ocean; and an over-the-water wedding chapel with breathtaking 360-degree, panoramic water views and a glass floor aisle. Brides and grooms also have the option to arrive to the wedding chapel via boat.

Additional completed renovations include upgrades to the resort’s existing five restaurants, as well as four new five-star Global Gourmet™ dining options: Sushi on the Sand; Beach Picnic, an option for Butler guests to have a romantic picnic on the beach; Jerk Shack, an open-air dining option serving authentic jerk dishes; and Schooner’s, which serves Caribbean fare.

All accommodations at Sandals South Coast are ocean-facing allowing guests to maximize their enjoyment of the beach. The Italian Riviera, formerly known as the Italian Village, which was completed this month, houses 112 rooms and suites, featuring upgraded room categories including Italian Beachfront One Bedroom Butler Suites, Italian Beachfront Club Level Walkout Junior Suites, Italian Beachfront Club Level Junior Suites and Italian Honeymoon Beachfront Rooms.

To celebrate the re-launch, Sandals Resorts is offering a free ‘Lover’s Rock Catamaran Cruise’ for guests who book a minimum six-night stay at Sandals South Coast for travel beginning now.
