Sandals Ochi Beach Resort

Adam Stewart, son of Sandals founder Butch Stewart, has been on a quest to revamp the Sandals brand for the younger global traveler that seeks a broad and enriching experience rather than just an open bar. Looking at top hospitality resorts on the exclusive island of St. Barths and the French Rivera’s St. Tropez for elegance and inclusive trends for luxurious retreats, Stewart has implemented many new amenities and experiences.  After a $60 million investment Jamaica’s Sandals Grande Riviera Resort is now Sandals Ochi Beach Resort. Build amid 100 lush and beautifully landscaped acres Sandals Ochi Beach Resort is home to 529 villas, luxury styled rooms and suites. Decorated in a modern plantation style, with mahogany furniture, the earth-toned décor, complete with stone, tile and marble accents is tropical in feeling and luxurious by nature.  A variety of accommodation options are available for guests including villas at Butler Village, which offers guests the opportunity to stay on the hillside of the St. Ann Mountains in a quiet and private setting. The attentive butlers will handle every request with excellence including arranging private dinners and making reservations. The suites and guest rooms at the Great House Village offer the guest a more traditional resort vacation. Perched on the hill and overlooking the sea below, the expansive swimming pool is stunning and there are restaurants overlooking the pools and a swim-up bar that gets lively in the afternoon. Down the hill and across the road, the Riviera Seaside Village offers guests immediate beach access, complete with a hot new beach club, private pools, water sport activities, and waterside dining.

At Sandals Ochi Beach Resort the beach experience includes the Ochi Beach Club where DJs and music enliven the cove beach experience. There are upgraded accommodations, and even more dining options including seven new Gourmet Discovery Dining options.

“Sandals Ochi Beach Resort is a game-changer for the all-inclusive resort experience in Jamaica,” said Gordon “Butch” Stewart, chairman of Sandals Resorts, during our stay at the festive opening. “With this re-launch, we’ve not only enhanced the resort but did so with the reimagined guest experience in mind, solidifying Sandals Ochi as Jamaica’s most comprehensive resort in the region.”

Like other Sandals Resorts the couples experience is important. There are lovely spots for private dinners, and all the restaurants will help guest celebrate a special occasion.
