Experience Sandals Royal Bahamian and Sandals Emerald Bay: Island Hop!

Click here for a slideshow of Sandals Emerald Bay

Can’t decide if Sandals Royal Bahamian or Sandals Emerald Bay is the best resort for you?  Not a problem.

Sandals all inclusive resorts has the perfect solution:  Island Hop, at their expense!  That’s right, you can fly into Nassau, about 15 minutes from Sandals Royal Bahamian, spend 4 nights, then fly to Sandals Emerald Bay, a short 40 minute flight, and spend 4 more nights, and the inter-island airfare is free for the 2 of you!!

Sound too good to be true?  It’s true!  And, Companions Fly Free from your gateway city to the Bahamas is also available!  Just book your flights with Sandals, and your companion flies for free!  How much better can it get?  Well, just let me give you some of the high points of each resort.  You’ll be glad that you don’t have to choose between the resorts.

Sandals Royal Bahamian is a beautiful resort with its own private island.  It is one of the larger resorts with 403 rooms, but at Sandals, that means a total with full occupancy of only 806 guests.  At Sandals, guests are all adult couples looking to have lots of quality time together, whether that be lying by the pool or the beach by themselves, or participating in group activities with other couples.  There are 2 main pools at Sandals Royal Bahamian, one of which is unofficially the quieter pool, and one where all the pool games take place.  The Private Island is just a short boat ride away, and gives you access to another pool, a barefoot café called Café Goombay, and a more private beach, with beach beds.  There are 10 restaurants at Sandals Royal Bahamian, and 9 Bars, including swim-up bars at the pools.


Because Sandals Royal Bahamian is near the city of Nassau, it’s easy to take the bus into the straw market, or enjoy the upscale shopping in town.  A water taxi will take you over to Paradise Island to the Atlantis Casino!     Or if you prefer to do your gambling a little closer to the resort, Crystal Palace is a very short bus ride away.

Of course, water sports are all included at Sandals Royal Bahamian, and those who choose to participate in snorkeling and SCUBA will enjoy all of the underwater sights.  Off the resort are many excursions, which are available at an extra cost.  Are you adventuresome?  How about diving with the sharks? A little less adventuresome?  Swimming with dolphins or deep sea fishing are very popular options.

Sandals Emerald Bay is the newest resort in the Sandals family.  Opening just last year, it has quickly become the showpiece of Sandals Resorts.  This is the perfect destination to relax after your busy time at Sandals Royal Bahamian.  Sandals Emerald Bay is on one of the most beautiful beaches you can imagine.  I have included additional pictures, so be sure to check them out.

Sandals Emerald Bay is smaller than Sandals Royal Bahamian, with only 183 rooms.  All of the rooms at Sandals Emerald Bay are suites with either concierge or butler service.   Even though the resort is smaller, there are plenty of restaurant and bar options:  5 of each!  The Drunken Duck, an English Pub, is one of the most popular. There are 3 swimming pools with whirlpools, and a beautiful Red Lane Spa.   The Greg Norman designed, 18 hole, Oceanside golf-course, has been featured on the Golf Channel’s Big Break program

Being able to combine Sandals Royal Caribbean with Sandals Emerald Bay creates the perfect opportunity for a wedding and honeymoon.  You could get married at Sandals Royal Caribbean with friends and family, and then fly away to your honeymoon at Sandals Emerald Bay.  Sounds heavenly, doesn’t it?

Sandals offer for free inter-island flights is a limited time offer, so please don’t hesitate if this sounds like the ideal vacation for you and your significant other!
