As a top Sandals travel agency and specialists in adult only all inclusive vacations, we are often asked “Which is the best Sandals Resort?” and our travel agents usually answer “that depends”. Why? Well let’s take a few examples –
Couple #2 (more on Couple #1 below) is looking for a tropical destination where they can relax and get some sun. She wants to work on her tan by a beautiful pool, but he is worried he’ll be bored. Their budget has been stretched by the wedding so they are hoping to spend $2-3K on a honeymoon including accommodations, meals and drinks. If they can get a room with an oceanview or private pool all the better, but if push comes to shove they’d rather splurge on activities, a spa treatment or perhaps a private beachfront dinner.
The best Sandals Resort for this couple might be Sandals Grande Riviera with its fabulous pools and swim up bars, chic new beach club, and ultra affordable butler village. Complimentary activities at the resort include snorkel trips, golf, rock climbing, scuba diving, sailing, kayaks, tennis and more. Nearby activities include ziplining, swimming with the dolphins, river rafting, ATVs and horseback riding. This adult only all inclusive resort has more than 15 restaurants and starts around $2500 per couple for a 6 night tropical honeymoon including everything you can eat, drink and do at the resort.
Couple #3 is all about the beach. They want a beachfront room just off the sand and a great ocean view. They’d like to walk barefoot on the beach, try stand up paddle boarding, waterski, swim, snorkel, sail and kayak. In the afternoon they’d enjoy a hammock for two or book by the beach and at the end of the day they’d like to dine under the stars near the ocean. Sandals Whitehouse or Sandals Grande St Lucian might be the best resort for this couple and Sandals Emerald Bay has an incredible beach if waterskiing isn’t important and you travel at the right time of year.
Couple #4 wants to go somewhere exotic. They’ve been on a Caribbean cruise which stopped in the Bahamas and Jamaica so they want to try something different. They’re also worried about the weather because their destination wedding is in August and they heard that is hurricane season. They’ve fantasized about Tahiti but don’t think they have the budget for an overwater bungalow on Bora Bora so we’d want to discuss affordable options in the South Pacific such as a Fiji honeymoon. But we might also suggest one of six Sandals Resorts on St Lucia, Grenada, Antigua or Barbados. These islands are farther south and less likely to be affected by tropical storms and hurricanes.
The beautiful island of St Lucia looks a lot like Bora Bora with dramatic mountain peaks called the Pitons and lush tropical rainforest fringed with long stretches of pristine beach. The largely undiscovered island of Grenada has some of the Caribbean’s best beaches plus waterfall hikes and serene, green interior. Antigua adds the opportunity to swim with the rays, picnic on a deserted motu or dance, dine and watch the sun go down from Shirley Heights. And while no Sandals Resort has an overwater bungalow (yet) you’ll find beachfront bungalows and villas with spectacular views and private pools at Sandals La Toc, Sandals Grande Antigua, Sandals La Source and Sandals Grande St Lucian.
Couple #5 is limited on time but wants to be pampered with a few days in the sun. They both enjoy gourmet food and a bit of nightlife, she’s into spas and he’s an avid scuba diver. The best Sandals Resort for this couple might be Sandals Royal Bahamian. There are nonstop flights from many U.S. gateways so travel time is minimal. There are numerous restaurants and foodies enjoy dining options ranging from the elegant Baccarat and Crystal Rooms to an authentic Bahamian restaurant on a private island and wood fired pizzas by the pool. Nightlife at the resort includes a lively pub, theme nights and a piano bar plus there are big name entertainers at Atlantis Resort and several casinos nearby. The Red Lane Spa offers everything from wraps to signature massages to aromatherapy and the Bahamas are known for excellent snorkeling and scuba diving.
