SANDALS Royal Bahamian Undergoing $20 million Improvements
Speaking about the improvement going on at the Sandals Resort located on Cable, it’s General Manage Patrick Drake, said the resort was looking forward to the opening of its refurbished 60-year-old building and further increasing its foothold on the all-inclusive market in the region.
“Everybody is going after a diminishing market,” he said. “If you’re not at the top of the stream, obviously there is no future at the bottom. At the top of the market is still where it’s at, and if you’re going to give that sort of commitment then you have to have a product to back it up.”
And Sandals Royal Bahamian is “backing it up” as the resort is hosting more than 1,000 travel agents from across the US and Canada, to a free familiarization trip to the resort.
A bet that is already paying off according to Mr. Drake, as agents who have been a part of the earlier visits are already making booking for their clients.
Sandals Royal Bahamian is also expected to benefit from the increased airlift that are now coming to the Bahamas. “With airlift coming in from so many destinations we are seeing quite a nice international mix,” said Mr Drake.
And our Bahamas Wedding Planner at Bahamas Destination Wedding are certainly looking forward to participating in Sandals Royal Bahamian weddings once the renovations are completed.
