In celebration of the 2012 Olympic season, Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts have been offering our guests an exciting array of cultural festivities and spirited events throughout the island of Jamaica. During the Olympic Games, our resorts are bringing the excitement of London to the islands, with international flag displays, extravagant Olympic ‘stadium’ food delights and more at the resorts' all-new Olympic Villages.
Sandals & Beaches Olympic Villages, the location for the ultimate Caribbean Olympic experience, have been erected at all resorts in Jamaica. The village features life size cut-outs of revered athletes, event broadcasts, and an Olympic-themed fashion show featuring chic, sporty and innovative creations by local designers.
With the overlapping Olympic Games and Jamaica 50 celebrations from August 1 (Emancipation Day) through August 6 (Independence Day), our guests were invited to delve into Jamaica’s rich cultural history by experiencing the heartbeat of its people with folk performances by the Hatfield Cultural Group and other Jamaica Cultural Development Commission award-winning medalists.
We wish all of the athletes in the summer games the best of luck and look forward to cheering them on from our own slice of paradise.
