International (SRI) will open its first Curaçao resort at the former Santa Barbara Resort property in 2021, company officials announced Thursday. The Dutch Caribbean resort will launch with an initial 350 beachfront rooms and suites at the 3,000-acre site and mark Sandals’ expansion to a ninth Caribbean country.
The new property will feature “key elements” of Sandals’ resort experience, including expansive pools, gourmet dining options and deluxe accommodations, including new River Suites.
Guests will also have access to an adjacent 18-hole Pete Dye championship golf course, two on-site marinas and 38,000-square-feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space. SRI is also planning “a further expansion” of the resort in “coming years,” officials said.
