A few months back we were lucky enough to spend a week relaxing on the beautiful beaches of Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay, Jamaica for our 5th wedding anniversary.   While there, we chatted with Mr. Gerald Christ the General Manager, who invited us into his office to show us the brand new design plans for the soon-to-be-built overwater bungalows.  Here is what we've learned since then. A little preview of these amazing suites to "soon come":

Where Will The Sandals Overwater Suites Be Located?

The location has been debated by many for months as Sandals has announced they'd be breaking ground to being building.  But Mr. Christ confirmed to us that the bungalows would be built on the quiet side of the island, where the current "clothing optional" section is located.

What Will The Sandals Overwater Suites Look Like?

The overall layout will include 5 bungalows plus a 24 hour Club Sandals lounge so that guests are not "alone on the island" all night.  Each bungalow will have everything from private floating decks, to infinity pools, as well as over-water hammocks and interiors that will rival some of the best suites Sandals has to offer.  The design underwent some last-minute changes due to the trade winds that hit the island, but all is well to move forward now.

*1600 Square feet of space with maximum privacy
*Glass flooring in the living room, allowing you to see the marine life below (lights will illuminate the water under the bungalow at night).

Good news!  Work has already begun.  A dredge barge was brought in to break ground on November 1st and the bungalows are scheduled to be ready for guests by November 15th 2016

How Much Will These Suites Cost?

At the moment, pricing for these suites is coming out to around $20,500.00 for a full 7 nights all-inclusive (land only) for 2 adults. This cost covers the suite, all meals, drinks, transfers, gratuities, etc. The pricing includes current Sandals discounts which are always subject to change. The suites will come with Club Level and personal Butler service as well. You can book it with a non-refundable $1,000 down. That will hold the room and dates you'd like until final payment is due 45 days prior to check in.

Will The Price Of The Suites Go Down?

There isn't talk about the price lowering anytime soon, but of course with new deals and promotions they price could lower at any point. However, the good news is Sandals is now building 12 new "overwater bungalows" with less bells and whistles than the "overwater villas" shown above. 

These new bungalows will have many of the same features such as the outdoor sitting areas, outdoor soaking tub, glass flooring, and interior design. The difference will be that they won't have a private plunge pool and will be much smaller in size. The plan is to build about a dozen of them at Sandals Royal Caribbean and if we're lucky maybe we'll see them come to other Sandals Resort locations in the future.

The suites will become available to book on September 13th, 2016 and will be available for guests to stay in from February 1st, 2017 and beyond:
