Sandals Montego Bay Resort Gets New Lease on Life
After undergoing close to four years of renovations, nearly every surface across the 26-acre Sandals Montego Bay -- built in 1981 and the first property within the Sandals empire -- has been updated. Among the more notable changes is a renovated, sun-filled lobby area.
Select premium room categories feature the property's debut swim-up suite options, offering direct access to small heated pools. Updated rooms feature white walls and linens and pops of sea-inspired hues.
The vast majority of accommodations now offer oversized outdoor tubs on their balcony or patio areas.
Among the more notable changes is the property's expansive, sun-filled lobby area. Once topped with a leaky, canvas roof, the space now features a white, vaulted ceiling with skylights as well as open-air ocean views. Groupings of cozy seats give the lobby a living room ambience, a feeling enhanced by the many guests curled up on couches or sitting with their feet propped on coffee tables.
The bright and airy aesthetic extends to the resort's 272 rooms and suites. Guestrooms feature white walls and linens and splashes of sea-inspired hues; the rooms are also outfitted with updated bathrooms and sleek, modern furnishings.

Another highlight is the recently completed Latitudes Over Water Bar, which sits just off a new pier and showcases 360-degree water views. When lit up in the evenings, the space is particularly warm and inviting, with fire pits adding to its charm.
Also of note is the resort's new overwater wedding chapel, which is similarly situated at the end of a long pier. The all-white venue, which debuted in January as Sandals Montego Bay's second on-site chapel, can seat up to 40 guests. It can be booked for $750 per hour.
