Sandals Dunn’s River: Let Life Flow

On the north coast of Jamaica lies a place where meandering rivers and cascading waterfalls wash over the landscape. It’s here, against the backdrop of the famed Blue Mountains, that a spectacular new beachfront resort rises from the echoes of the past to redefine luxury for the modern age. Introducing Sandals Dunn’s River, where life and love come naturally.

This captivating new resort in Ocho Rios is designed to embrace the essence of Jamaica, the land of wood and water, as it’s known, with rolling rivers and lush landscapes. And, with every luxurious amenity found here—the most sumptuous suites and accommodations, 11 gourmet restaurants, nine bars, and five alluring pools—it’s the perfect destination for weddings and honeymoons.

At Sandals Dunn’s River, every wedding is designed to make dreams come true, bringing a couple’s vision for their perfect wedding to life. Every moment is carefully planned with help from a dedicated team of wedding professionals, from the ceremony to the reception, and from pre-wedding festivities to post-wedding activities and excursions for guests. What makes this wedding experience even more extraordinary is that, once the vows are exchanged, the honeymoon begins for the newlyweds and their guests get the vacation of a lifetime.

Every day at Sandals Dunn’s River is designed to be different, something made entirely possible with the endless options when it comes to activities and amenities. Let’s start with its location on a pristine beach near one of Jamaica’s most famous natural wonders: Dunn’s River Falls. Hike through the 180ft tall waterfall with your loved one, and immerse yourselves in the lush surroundings, and take in the moment with natural swimming pools hidden along the path.

Of course, the sea offers its own invitation to newlyweds and their guests. Watersports are always included at Sandals. That includes self-propelled activities like kayaking, windsurfing, and paddleboarding. But there’s a whole new world to explore beneath the way, and Sandals also includes scuba diving for certified divers.

For those who prefer to keep their feet on land, there are lots of options there, as well. Golfers will love the complimentary green fees at the nearby Upton Estate Golf & Country Club, with 18-holes of narrow fairways, miniscule drop-off greens, and amazing views of the mountains and the sea. And those looking just to relax beneath the sun after so much wedding and honeymoon planning can float their time away at five incredible pools, two of which are meandering river pools that wind their way around the resort.

By this time, newlyweds and their guests have worked up quite an appetite, and Sandals elevates dining into an unforgettable culinary experience at 12 mouthwatering restaurants.

This epicurean voyage around the world takes guests from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean and to the far reaches of Asia. They can go Greek at Edessa, a sophisticated restaurant where Greek-inspired cuisine meets the Caribbean in a relaxing venue overlooking the aquamarine sea. Italian specialties are served with amore at Cascata, while L’Amande highlights the traditions of France’s finest dining establishments. Those with a taste for the exotic flavors of Asia will find them at Banyu and at Hanami’s sushi bar.

Like at all other Sandals, drinks are always on the house at Sandals Dunn’s River, with unlimited pours of premium brand liquors served around the clock at nine new bars that range from the signature swim-up bar to a rooftop lounge and a sultry jazz lounge. The very first Sandals rum bar, The Sandals Rum Club, makes its debut at Sandals Dunn’s River, serving cocktails made with Jamaican rums and artfully mixed with locally sourced ingredients like coconut creme made from home-grown coconuts and fresh island sugar cane.

Sandals has always taken romantic honeymoon suites beyond the imagination, and that certainly holds true at Sandals Dunn’s River. Newlyweds can step onto their balcony and into an infinity-edge plunge pool while casting their gaze on an endless horizon in the SkyPool Suites, which are making their Jamaican debut here. And Sandals has raised the roof on the swim-up Rondovals concept. Perched along a winding river pool with private plunge pools and Tranquility Soaking Tubs™ for two, some even offer luxurious rooftop decks.

At Sandals Dunn’s River, every day is transformed into something extraordinary, and you can help your clients make their wedding and honeymoon dreams come true and bring them closer to what matters most — each other.
