Two Sandals Hotels Push Reopening Dates due to Matthew
Following a thorough assessment this weekend of its Bahamas-based resorts, Sandals Resorts International (SRI) recently announced that Sandals Royal Bahamian, located in Nassau, will postpone its originally scheduled October 14 re-opening and will remain closed until October 25.
Sandals Emerald Bay, located in Exuma, which requires more extensive repairs than initial estimates, will officially close and reopen on December 15. The resort company originally released a statement to the media saying that the property would not have to close.
According to Tammy Gonzalez, CEO of Unique Vacations, Inc. (UVI), an affiliate of Unique Travel Corporation, worldwide representatives of Sandals Resorts, UVI is working closely with clients affected by the closure of the resorts.
“We recognize the inconvenience this presents, but we are committed to delivering the quality Sandals experience our guests expect and deserve,” said Gonzalez in a written release. “When we reopen, it will be right.”
