Offering the pinnacle of luxury in Jamaica, soothing new River Suites are set to be unveiled at Sandals Negril Beach Resort & Spa and Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort & Private Island by summer 2007. These new suites, offering the ultimate in amenities and luxury, will be set upon a relaxing lazy river and pool. At Sandals Negril, 25 opulent River Suites, available in two categories including the “Ocean’s Edge One Bedroom River Suite with Private River Entrance” and “ Penthouse Ocean’s Edge One Bedroom River Suite”, will become the resort’s “Sundowner Block.” Ten stunning “St. James River Suites” will soon debut in the appropriately named “St. James Block” at Sandals Royal Caribbean, a resort known for embracing Jamaica’s British Colonial heritage.

The ground floor of the River Suites at both resorts will feature a secluded patio surrounded by lush Caribbean vegetation that opens onto the resort’s lazy river where lovers can dip their toes into the soothing waterway. At Sandals Negril, all suites will have stunning ocean views, and the 12 ground floor Ocean’s Edge One Bedroom River suites will have zero-entry access to the lazy river. Indoors, the suites will feature the ultimate in luxury, highlighted by an expansive living room complete with a 42” plasma television, and a separate bedroom area, with a 37” plasma television. The patio will feature an outdoor dining area, as well as a love seat for the ultimate in relaxation under the warm Caribbean sun.

At Sandals Royal Caribbean, the four ground floor St. James River Suites will have expanded patio areas with lush vegetation, with access to the lazy river just steps away. The suites located on the second-floor of both resorts will offer guests the opportunity to enjoy the relaxing sounds of the trickling water from their ocean view decks as well as the spectacular views of the ocean and lazy river below.

Each extravagant suite is outfitted with custom furnishings and tropically inspired décor, with a spacious bedroom with a four-poster mahogany bed, a marvelous bathroom with marble and hand-cut mosaic tile accents, plus a Jacuzzi tub and his and her vanities. Additionally, the suites will come complete with a Butler Pantry, so that the personal butler who comes with every suite will be able to stock the room with guests’ favorite snacks and drinks.

The lazy river, set beautifully amongst the lush landscape and tropical vegetation on the properties, is the perfect retreat for guests who choose to let their worries melt away in the calming waters. The pool features hand cut glass tile and elegant wrought iron chaise lounge chairs with bamboo accents where guests can lie down to enjoy the sounds of the flowing river under the shade of breezy Caribbean palms.
