How to choose the best Sandals Resort for your honeymoon or destination wedding

There are many wonderful destinations throughout the world but if an all inclusive resort is on your honeymoon list, your best choice may be a Sandals Resort. No kids are allowed, everything is included from meals to drinks to scuba diving, and romance abounds with beachfront locations, gourmet dining, private pools and luxurious spas. So how do you choose the best Sandals Resort for you?

Let’s start with location – Sandals has 12 all inclusive resorts on 4 Caribbean islands including the Bahamas, Jamaica, St Lucia and Antigua. Your choice of island should consider travel time and airfare, weather and what you’d like to see and do. All of the islands enjoy tropical weather year round but the northern Bahamas can be too cool for a bathing suit in December and more vulnerable to hurricanes in the fall. Jamaica stays in the 80′s year round as do the southerly islands of St Lucia and Antigua and these islands are less troubled by storms.

The shortest flights and lowest fares are usually to Jamaica or the Bahamas, but if time and distance isn’t a factor, St Lucia is rated one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Snorkeling and scuba diving is good throughout the Caribbean. You can swim with the dolphins in Jamaica and the Bahamas, go zip lining or play a free round of golf in St Lucia and Jamaica, and hit the casino in Antigua and the Bahamas. Waterskiing and tubing is offered at Sandals Negril, Sandals Whitehouse and Sandals Grande St Lucian.

Every Sandals Resort includes complimentary watersports such as sailing, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba, land sports like tennis and volleyball and a myriad of activities from beach parties to a work out at the fitness center or a day at the spa. You can even get married at Sandals and weddings are free at all 12 resorts. The basic wedding package includes all the essentials, but a more elaborate ceremony is easy too and Sandals is an outstanding choice for a destination wedding with many extras free of charge.

Once you’ve chosen a destination it’s time to think about which resort is best for you. Are you looking for a casual beach atmosphere with open air dining or a more formal setting under crystal chandeliers? Are you a pool person or a beach person? Is golf or waterskiing on your “to do” list? Would you enjoy resort hopping with dining, drinking and playing privileges at several locations? Do you want to do it all or nothing at all?

Last but not least, every Sandals Resort has about a million (slight exaggeration) room categories with prices starting under $3000 for a one week all inclusive vacation for two to more than $10,000 for a once in a lifetime honeymoon in a fabulous suite with private pool and butler. But whether you choose a garden view room or beachfront villa, every Sandals guest will enjoy a couples only getaway with king beds, fine dining, name brand liquors, activities, entertainment and tips included.
