The Sands - Maxwell Christ Church, Barbados
The Sands is located on the lively south coast of Barbados. Surrounded by nightlife, great eateries, top class restaurants such as Champers and Tapas beach bars and sports bars.
Shopping is less than a quarter mile away, supermarkets are also a walk away.
Banking and municipal buildings are located just to the west but again are within easy walking distance.
The Grantley Adams International airport is only a ten minute drive away.
All of these amenities and yet when walks through the modern buildings and past the clean lines of the pool one is greeted by the azure waters of the south coast and the wonderfully broad and deep beach speckled with coconut trees to relax under or to climb up and grab a snack.

This development offers everything a holiday maker or investor would want, is backed by a PROVEN development team and management company and offers remarkable value rarely seen on island.

The original property, constructed as a ‘condo-hotel’ in the early 1970’s, was bought by the Palm Hotel Group in 2005 and operated as an all-inclusive 130-room hotel until it ceased trading in 2010.

Located on 2.48 acres (107,930 sq ft), the Sandy Bay beachfront is widely acknowledged as one of the very best locations in Barbados.
SBH construction and refurbishment plans will see the hotel extensively renovated to deliver a stylish 4* Resort-Residences Property, operated and managed by a highly acclaimed hotel management team.

The resort will offer a well balanced and flexible accommodation mix; comprised of Studio, One and Two-Bedroom Apartment Units. It will also include two restaurants, a beachfront bar, spa, gymnasium and fitness facilities, plus; owners and guests will enjoy well-appointed reception, concierge and communal lounge and business centre facilities.
