Luxury and Romance in the Caribbean


Have you ever heard of the Sandals Resort chain?

If you have, then you can attest to what I’m about to share. And if you haven’t, well let me fill you in!

The multiple award winning Sandals Resorts, an adults-only all-inclusive chain of family owned luxury resorts, started with one resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and has now grown to 7 locations in Jamaica, 3 locations in St. Lucia, 2 locations in Bahamas, and one in Antigua, Grenada, and Barbados.  It has now become one of the most well known and award winning hospitality companies in the WORLD.

Over the years they have perfected the romance in couples’ vacations, and have earned the motto: “Once you go Sandals, you never go back”. They have room categories so spiffy that can include butler service, your own swim up infinity pool, room service, and tranquility soaker tubs right inside your room, or on your patio.

Their romance dial is turned up so high they often host destination weddings, honeymoons, anniversaries, and vow renewal trips. With any of these types of trips they have an entire team dedicated to working with you to create your dreamy day, and will work with you in advance to ensure all the details are ironed out. Some of their vow locations are absolutely breath taking.

There are tonnes of ways to spend your day while visiting any of the properties, including a visit to their Red Lane Spa for a relaxing treatment, golf on one of their prestigious courses, scuba diving, nightly entertainment, and even a private romantic candlelit dinner for two on the beach at sunset.

I’ve noticed that they are so innovative they are always changing and improving the properties and amenities to keep their clients happy.  Something I am SO unbelievably excited about is their first ever over-the-water villas that are set to open in November at the Sandals Royal Caribbean located in Montego Bay! This is the first of it’s kind in the Caribbean, and actually they are almost sold out for 2017, and are already booking for 2018. Crazy, right? It includes Butler Elite Service, 24-hour room service, a tranquility soaking tub, glass floors in your bedroom, over-the-water hammock for two, and a private infinity pool. I bet now I’ve peaked your interest! Honestly though, I can’t wait to visit these...

In addition to being a cutting-edge resort chain, Sandals is also a proud contributor to giving back through their very own organization. The Sandals Foundation represents a way for them to give back to the communities through initiatives that support, uplift, and improve the lives of the Caribbean people focusing on communities, education, and environment. 

I was also fortunate enough to hang out with one of the Canadian Business Development Managers, Robert Smith, and ask him why he thinks Sandals stands out from the crowd. Take a look:

So now that you’ve heard only a smidgen of what they have to offer, I’m sure you’re wondering how to get there, or which resort to choose, right? This is where I come in! Fortunately, I’ve been given the opportunity to not only experience a vacation at Sandals, but also to visit a number of their properties.  I’d be glad to answer any questions you have, or give any feedback.

Thanks for reading, and don't forget to start saving for your next vacation. :)
