Adam Stewart As the dynamic Deputy Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sandals Resorts International, the world's leading resort company, and The ATL Group, Jamaica's longest standing automotive and appliance distributors with recently expanded region-wide operations, Adam Stewart is one of the most successful and admired entrepreneurs of our time. Despite being one of the most prominent young businessmen in the world, Stewart remains a proud Jamaican and citizen of the Caribbean dedicating much of his time to elevating the region he calls home.

In 2009, Stewart founded the Sandals Foundation with the aim of uniting the region under one common goal: to lift its people through education and protect its delicate ecosystem. The Sandals Foundation harnesses the resources, talents, partnerships and awareness behind the Sandals Resorts brand to tackle a myriad of issues affecting the Caribbean. In 2013, Stewart was named as an Ambassador of the Caribbean-SickKids Paediatric Cancer and Blood Disorder Project. The not-for-profit collaboration between Canada's renowned Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and various institutions across six Caribbean islands works to provide the best possible management for paediatric cancer and to improve outcomes for children affected by cancers and serious blood disorders in the region.

MEDIA INFLUENCERS Underlining his reputation as a staunch advocate of education, Stewart established an internationally-accredited private sector educational institute, the Sandals Corporate University/ ATL Academy of Excellence. Launched in early 2012, the Sandals Corporate University pushes the boundaries of distance learning in the Caribbean with over 4,100 team members enrolling in the University to date, and the resorts themselves reaching new levels of excellence.

In 2016, Stewart received the Order of Distinction (Commander Class) for outstanding contribution to tourism and the hotel industry. The Order of Distinction is a national honour conferred by the Government of Jamaica upon citizens who render outstanding and important services to the country. Additionally, he was appointed a member of Jamaica’s Economic Growth Council and a member of the Board of Directors of the Port Authority of Jamaica by Prime Minister, The Most Honourable Andrew Holness. Within the local community, Stewart continues to serve as ambassador to the University of the West Indies, helping to promote higher education in Western Jamaica and throughout the island and region at large.

SANDALS ROYAL CARIBBEAN OVER-THE-WATER VILLAS

Sandals Royal Caribbean is to debut the Caribbean’s first-ever Over-theWater Villas at in Montego Bay, Jamaica , citing unparalleled demand and a drive toward continued innovation. “I have always said that being out on the water is where I am happiest, and with these suites, guests can experience a direct link to the Caribbean Sea,” said Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, Chairman and Founder of Sandals Resorts. The first of its kind in the region, the Over-the-Water Villas at Sandals Royal Caribbean convey an intimate connection to the Caribbean Sea and represent a new level of innovation for the Luxury Included® company. Each of the five villas has a different design, representing the Feng Shui elements: Wood, Water, Fire, Earth and Metal, illustrated through unique elements from warm wooden pendants and underwater

art pieces to mirrored and metallic accents. Merging the interior and exterior spaces through multiple expansive glass doors, couples can admire the majestic beauty of the ocean from their private infinity pool, over-the-water hammock, glass floor panels or the suite’s stylish king-size beds made from teak adorned and so Egyptian linens and plush pillows for the ultimate sleep. Beyond the views, guests staying in the newly debuted Villas have access to unparalleled services and exclusive amenities from 24/7 butler service, trained in accordance to the exacting service standards of the Guild of Professional Butlers, and personalized in-room dining to private yoga classes and direct resort access via a “Royal Duffy” luxury boat. www.sandals.com.

Greeted in Style

The Villa Experience

It is said that one never gets a second chance to make a first impression. And for this reason, the villa experience begins as soon as guests step of the plane in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Guests are greeted by name and taken to the exclusive Sandals airport lounge. From there, a luxury private transfer to the resort awaits – a mere 10 minute drive from the airport. As guests arrive to Sandals Royal Caribbean, they are welcomed by their own personal butler, trained in accordance to the exacting service standards of the Guild of Professional Butlers, and whisked to the privacy of their Over-the-Water villa for the check-in process via a quick boat ride on a luxury ‘Royal Duffy’ transfer.

From floating water hammocks to glass floors, these five Tahiti-style private villas deliver an immersive journey of the Caribbean's finest turquoise waters and rich marine life. Merging the interior and exterior spaces through multiple expansive glass doors, couples can admire the majestic beauty of the ocean from their private infinity pool, either of their two outdoor showers or the suite’s stylish kingsize beds made from teak adorned and so Egyptian linens and plush pillows for the ultimate sleep.

From arranging private dinners and romantic surprises to accompanying guests on shopping trips to Montego Bay’s Hip Strip and select Island Routes adventures, butlers connect with villa guests via smart phones, allowing for easy access via call or text options. Butlers are also available to assist in transporting guests from resort to villa 24/7 via a “Royal Duffy” luxury boat.

The villas’ connection to nature offer an immediate sense of calm, with the so waves of the ocean audible and visible throughout the suites.

Beyond the resort’s many restaurants, villa guests have access to a unique culinary experience. A 24-hour room service menu is offered, including a ‘Wake me Up’ menu serving a variety of coffee and teas, as well as a selection of fresh pressed juices and organic smoothies. The exceptional villa dining experience extends to the evening with access to a private chef - exclusive to the five villas who can personalize a romantic meal.

Jamaica, land of wood and water, as well as the Feng Shui concept of harmonizing the magnificent natural environment with the interior space were the ultimate inspiration for the five villas. Each of the five villas have a different design, representing the Feng Shui elements: Wood, Water, Fire, Earth and Metal. These design perspectives are illustrated through unique elements in each of the suites from warm wooden pendants and underwater art pieces to mirrored and metallic accents.

KINGSToN Considered the pulse of Jamaica and, by most accounts, the pulse of the Caribbean, Kingston is a city rich in culture, nuance and history. As the foundational bedrock of reggae music, Kingston has built on that legacy and continued to broaden its scope and relevance both at home and abroad. Boasting gorgeous beaches, a vibrant nightlife, market and duty free shopping and savory cuisine, the home of reggae music icon Bob Marley is much more than just a cultural museum.

It is a dynamic, surprising and profound forum where commerce, culture and natural wonders are in constant rotation. There’s always something to discover in Kingston. The Spanish Court Hotel, centered in the heart of new Kingston is no more than 45 minutes away from the airport and it’s convenient location makes it only 5-10 minutes away from some of Kingston’s best restaurants and clubs. www.spanishcourthotel.com
