Sandyport Beach Resort Reopens November 16, 2020

Nassau, Bahamas, 11 November 2020- TripAdvisor’s #1 ranked Nassau Resort and Travellers’ Choice award winner, Sandyport Beach Resort, is once again welcoming both international and local guests back for some island time at the seaside resort from Monday, November 16th.  By design, the popular Family Island-style resort is social-distancing compliable with its single and multi-bedroom suites and studios attractively spread along the canals and Lagoon Beach in Sandyport.

Bahamian residents and international guests can enjoy a choice of beautiful, well-appointed hotel rooms and 1, 2, and 3-bedroom suites all individually air-conditioned at the adult and kid-friendly pool areas and the Lagoon Beach just a short stroll from the Resort’s Ocean Beach.  Unique features include kitchen facilities in the suites along with open-plan living and dining room and a Jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom.

General Manager Vernon Moss explained that because the property is built not unlike those in the Family Islands, everything is already well spaced out.

“Our resort is designed for peace of mind. It is low density with 72 rooms and suites housed in six colorful villas along the canals at Sandyport. So we don’t have a need for elevators or interior corridors and every room or suite has its own external entrance. We offer the convenience of mobile check-in, so you can minimize the time and interaction of conventional check-in processes and simply pick up your key. Guests can also mobile check-out, with no need to stop at the front desk.

The Blue Sail Restaurant and Bar located on the resort’s ocean beach is a beautiful outdoor spot with breath-taking views of the ocean. Fun and relaxation are not limited to the resort alone. Guests are also steps away from the picturesque Olde Town and nearby local food and beverage favorites such as Twisted Lime, Spritz, The News Café, and Bon Vivants Café and Cocktails - all within a short walk.   Many of the island’s favorite activities and attractions are also reopening from Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas, Sandy Toes (November 25th) and Dolphin Encounters and collect guests from the resort.  All guests returning to the property will undergo temperature checks.

Sandyport Beach Resort has a tried and proven Ministry of Health-certified Clean and Pristine Health and Safety Plan that meets, and exceeds, the guidelines and recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, and Ministry of Health.     

Assistant General Manager Cheralda Arnett noted that the resort’s July reopening was a testament to the success of its Health and Safety Plan and underscored that despite these measures, Sandyport Beach Resort’s record of hospitable charm remains at the forefront. 

She continued: “We put a lot of thought into our safety measures. We were sure not to take away from the ‘Sandyport Beach Resort’ experience. Instead, we maximized on our well-established Family Island-feel of the resort. Our sun, sand, sea, and amazing hospitality are all here as we look forward to welcoming everyone as they are ready.”

Sandyport Beach Resort, winner of “Loved by Guests” award, is paying extra attention to all aspects of cleanliness. From handwashing hygiene to Environmental Protection Agency-recommended cleaning product specifications, guests can be assured that their rooms, suites, and common areas are kept at the highest standard of clean.
