Sandals Resorts Is Expanding Its Popular Off-Site Dining Program. It supports locally owned restaurants by giving select Sandals guests access to some of the destinations' top dining experiences - all included with their booking.

Sandals will transform two resorts in Jamaica acquired last year—the former Jewel Dunn's River Beach Resort & Spa in Ocho Rios and Jewel Runaway Bay Beach Resort & Waterpark plus a prime parcel of beachfront land adjacent to the Ocho Rios resort into three distinct experiences under the Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts brands.

Sandals' expansion plans return one of Jamaica's most storied resorts, the Dunn's River property in Ocho Rios, back to the Sandals family as Sandals Dunn's River, the same name as when it was originally added to the portfolio in 1990..
