While attending Sandals Star Awards this fall I had the opportunity to visit the gorgeous new Sandals Grande Antigua Resort and all I can say is wow!
When I visited Sandals Antigua two years ago, I fell in love with the long stretch of powdery white sand and the Rondovals (individual round, bungalow style accommodations) have been popular with honeymooners for years.
That said, the original section of the resort, now called the Caribbean Grove, had a somewhat unexciting pool and very few guest rooms had an ocean view. Another concern was the almost total lack of shade for those with lily white Seattle winter skin…
That has all changed with the opening of Sandals Grande Antigua Mediterranean Village. Everything about the new section is designed to impress. The huge new oceanfront pool is stunning with a center waterfall feature and there are lots of tented cabanas with comfy lounge chairs scattered about.
Every room in the Mediterannean Village has a patio or balcony and most have a 180 degree view of the clear turquoise ocean beyond the pool. Suites are luxuriously furnished with 4 poster king beds, plasma tv’s, whirlpool tubs, private pools and more.
There are now 9 restaurants to choose from and 8 bars including Sandals’ signature swim up pool bar. You’ll find a lovely spa, beautifully manicured grounds and lots of space to enjoy a relaxed and luxurious honeymoon or vacation for two. And if you decide to go, don’t forget to arrange some special extras like a private dinner on the beach or a bubble bath strewn with rose petals and bedroom lit by candles.
Sandals is for couples only and it’s impossible to miss the romance. I’ve been to all 17 Sandals & Beaches Resorts so call or visit my Sandals site when you are ready to go!
