Sandals Royal Barbados opened in December of 2017 with 222 suites and will open another 50 rooms as part of the South Seas Village in October, giving the chain the largest room count - 552 - of any single hotel in Barbados.

General Manager of the resort, Ferry Zievinger, explained that these new hires will be assigned to all areas of the resort:

“We are pleased once again with the quality and positive attitude of the Barbadian workforce who attended our recent job fair and particularly those who have now joined the team.

“These new persons will be placed in every area of the resort from administration to operations and aim to fill the needs of our guests. We are talking bartenders, cooks, front office, watersports - you name it we have added in these departments.”

The new employees learned about the history of the company, its operational procedures and heard from various departmental heads as to what makes Sandals unique and so globally successful during orientation. And one of those new employees, Anica Maynard, felt inspired by the experience:

“It was warm and welcoming especially our two trainers. They had me feeling inspired regarding the hotel's way of developing the team members and the session also emphasized the way the team members should respect each other.”
