Interesting Facts

During the 2012 renovation, an idea was floated to convert the Balmoral Tower top floor fitness center into an ultra suite. However, Gordon "Butch" Stewart, founder and Chairman of Sandals Resorts, squashed the idea stating the fitness center and its magnificent views should be preserved for all guests of the resort to enjoy.

Just outside Sandals Royal Bahamian entrance, catch the #10 Bus for $1.25 to take you to Bay Street tourist and shopping area. From Bay Street cruise port area, take the water ferry for $4 to Paradise Island and the Atlantis Resort.
