Sandals Ochi Beach Resort, Sandals Resorts’ largest and Jamaica’s newest resort, marked its official grand opening on June 1, 2015. Following a multi-million dollar renovation project, the completely redesigned resort debuted a fresh, modern design aesthetic along with seven uniquely new Gourmet Discovery Dining options, a fresh, trendy Ochi Beach Club, reinvented resort entertainment, upgraded luxurious accommodations and more.
Previously known as Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort, the completely renovated resort was rebuilt to offer a dynamic beach experience complete with stylish beach club vibes and innovative culinary concepts.

Its Gourmet Discovery Dining program offers a complete immersion into the flavors of other cultures. Among these restaurants, Sandals Ochi Beach Resort is debuting new concepts for the entire brand including Southern, tapas and a speakeasy bar.

Guests will experience a whole new level of luxury at Sandals Ochi Beach Resort with completely renovated rooms to suit any style or budget. The resort also expanded its butler service by introducing the All-Butler Village. All suites located in the Village are now serviced by expertly-trained butlers to not only tend to guests’ every need throughout their stay, but to anticipate their every need. With this increased full-service VIP treatment, more guests can vacation like celebrities from the moment they arrive. These Love Nest® Dream suites and villas create the ultimate private romantic retreat for couples with pools, balconies, luxurious bathrooms and amenities. In addition to the renovation of its Love Nest® Dream suites, the resort reinvigorated its luxury private villa blocks built for couples to travel with friends in tow.
Sandals Ochi Beach Club, Jamaica’s trendiest, most exclusive hotspot, received a restyling with new furniture and a chic deck lounge designed for seclusion and scenic views. Sandals Ochi Beach Club is a stylish beach party by day and the hottest outdoor lounge in the Caribbean at night. With a beachfront pool, swim-up bar, the Caribbean’s largest rock climbing wall and 10 waterside restaurants to choose from, guests will never want to leave.
The resort now boasts a new style of landscaping throughout including updated furniture, new lighting, Zen ponds and signature fire pits for guests to enjoy a romantic evening. With more pools than any other resort in Jamaica, totaling 105, guests can cool off during the day at the newly renovated Oasis Pool or Main pool. When guests arrive to the Great House, formerly known as the Manor, they’ll experience a beautiful revitalized porte cochere area that welcomes guests in style. To make getting around the resort even more convenient for guests, a new transportation hub called The Hop has been added where guests can grab a jitney ride and be down by the beach in a matter of minutes. Additionally, the conference room received a fresh, new look with new drapes, tile and carpet in the corridor.
Sandals Ochi Beach Resort is set on over one hundred pristine acres of lush rolling hillside and tropical gardens on the beautiful North Coast of Jamaica. Nestled between the verdant St. Ann’s mountains and the Caribbean Sea, the resort boasts 529 rooms and suites, 16 restaurants, two luxurious Red Lane® Spas and nearby access to one of the Caribbean’s finest golf courses, Sandals Golf & Country Club.
