Sandals® Dunn’s River: Let Life Flow

On the north coast of Jamaica, against the backdrop of the Blue Mountains, lies a magical place, where eight rivers weave through untouched forests and rushing waterfalls wash over the landscape. Handpicked by Sandals® Resorts founder for its pristine and protected beach, moments from Jamaica’s most natural wonder, is Sandals Dunn’s River.

The late Butch Stewart used to tell stories about growing up in Jamaica, selling freshly caught fish to local hotels on a stunning stretch of sand in Ocho Rios. As a boy, he couldn’t have known that one day he’d be opening his own hotel on this beach – but maybe he had a feeling. Because the mystic aura that casts itself over the area is palpable, instilling a feeling of both awe and possibility to all who visit.

Living’s easy – and easier to get to

Sandals Dunn’s River sits on one of most desirable beaches on the island. It is the closest resort to the world famous Dunn’s River Falls and Park, where adventure and exploration take hold. From climbing waterfalls to zip lining across tree tops, everything about this park will take their breath away. Plus, the resort is a quick 30-minute ride from Ian Fleming Airport, named after the creator of James Bond. The new American Airlines flight AA4007, also a reference to MI6’s most notorious agent, takes guests directly from Miami to Ocho Rios in less than two hours.

Bringing the natural beauty of Ocho Rios to you

Dunn’s River is a homecoming of sorts. As one of the last projects Mr. Stewart worked on with his son, Adam, it calls to mind the company’s humble beginnings while also giving guests a preview of where Sandals is going. Some things will never change: we’ll continue to be the most inclusive all-inclusive and we’ll always have the best spot on the best beaches in the Caribbean. But as a Caribbean-born company, Sandals has always dedicated itself to giving guests the best, most authentic experiences in the Caribbean, as much within the resorts as outside of them. Dunn’s River goes above and beyond to ensure that the allure and beauty of Ocho Rios flows through the resort in ways that feel modern and new.

Here, Sandals brings nature to guests. The underground springs that feed Dunn’s River Falls percolate the property. Even the lobby is reminiscent of the tropical jungle that engulfs the resort. This is the “land of wood and water” after all; while guests might feel a world away from where they came, they’ll feel solidly grounded in the beauty of Ocho Rios.

A true taste of Jamaica

Guests can get an authentic taste of Jamaica at every corner, from sampling a variety of small batch local rums and craft cocktails at Dunn’s Rum Club to sipping coffee made from Blue Ridge Mountain beans at Blum, the stylish coffee house serving Jamaican patties and pastries. And they need not leave the resort for some of the best jerk chicken and curried goat on the island. Jerk Shack offers incredible Jamaican home cooking and street food right on the sand.

The sky’s the limit

Spacious, modern and each with its own unique view, the rooms and suites entice guests to stay in for the day. While they can find thatched roof Rondoval™ Suites at other Sandals resorts, only Dunn’s River offers Rondoval Suites with rooftop hideaways. Complete with lush lounge seating and a soaking tub, these swim-up suites also tout telescopes so guests can take a closer look at the night’s sky. They even come with access to a stargazing concierge, for those who appreciate the stars but aren’t quite sure what to make of them. And also a first for Sandals in Jamaica are SkyPool Butler Suites, which provide a spectacular view of the ocean from a private in-room infinity pool several stories high.
