Sandals Resorts International (SRI) commemorated its venture into Curaçao during a special ribbon cutting ceremony held at the newly opened Sandals Royal Curaçao – the 16th property in the Sandals Resorts portfolio. The resort officially opened to guests on June 1, 2022.

Today marks a dream decade in the making as Sandals Resorts officially becomes part of the story of Curaçao,” said Adam Stewart, Executive Chairman of SRI. “It’s a great honor to now share this incredible destination with the world with its eclectic melting pot of culture, vibrance and stunning beauty. Today is also bittersweet as I wish my father and our late founder, Gordon “Butch” Stewart, could have been here to see this dream of our family’s become a reality.”

From experiential driven, off-site programming, to locally inspired resort experiences, to unique and impactful community and environmental development programs, the 351-room Sandals Royal Curaçao, and its unique approach to tourism, was saluted by attending dignitaries who recognized its progress and island impact so far.

During his remarks, Stewart introduced the Sandals Foundation’s newly formed partnership with the Netherlands’ AFC Ajax soccer team to launch Future Goals – a program that turns fishing nets sourced from the ocean and recycled plastic waste into soccer goals for children.
