At Sandals®, luxury is an expectation delivered on a silver platter

Sandals has always treated romance like the greatest of luxuries, creating all-inclusive resorts that defy expectations. They’ve been rewarded for their innovation with accolades and awards from all corners of the travel industry. But there are so many elements that go into providing guests with extraordinary vacation experiences, something they manage by staying on the cutting edge. For Sandals, water is the inspiration for everything.

The Caribbean is renowned for its impossibly blue, crystal-clear seas, and from its humble beginnings, Sandals capitalized on that by building their resorts on the best beaches with the calmest waters. In the years since, Sandals has created the most innovative designs and cutting-edge amenities inspired by water. Their Over-the-Water Villas and Bungalows were the first of their kind in the Caribbean, offering “sea-through” glass floors and expansive decks with over-the-water hammocks and infinity-edge plunge pools. They put pools in the sky in their SkyPool suites and placed living rooms in pools, while their Over-the-Water Wedding Chapels have brides literally walking on water.

They even placed their restaurants, up to 16 per resort, at water’s edge—from the white-glove elegance of a restaurant suspended above the sea or casual dining with toes in the sand. Their 5-Star Global Gourmet™ program is as spectacular as the view, elevating epicurean cuisine to an art form, and it’s all included and all unlimited. Every tasty morsel is created by internationally trained chefs who use fresh, top-quality, and farm-to-table ingredients. It’s all perfectly paired with unlimited pours of Robert Mondavi Twin Oaks® wines, selected exclusively for Sandals.

Guests can stretch out on overwater hammocks with 360-degree water views at Latitudes Overwater Bar, just one of many bars at Sandals. They’ve raised the bar on bars and even put one on the roof and inside our pools. There’s even a 1920’s-style Speakeasy bar, The Rabbit Hole, where it takes a secret word to gain entry. Premium brand liquors are always included and unlimited, because Sandals believes that when every detail is carefully considered, guests can taste the quality.

For those who come to Sandals with a bucket list, Sandals will turn it into a “to-do” list. Sandals includes every water sport under the sun, from sailing and snorkeling to paddleboarding and windsurfing. They even include motorized water sports like waterskiing and daily scuba diving for certified divers. In fact, Sandals is the only resort group ranked a top five dive operation in the western hemisphere by PADI®.

There are endless diversions on dry land, too, from tennis on courts lit for night play to endless rounds of golf on award-winning courses, including a championship course edging the sea designed by World Golf Hall-of-Famer Greg Norman. On land and on water, Sandals includes it all, even top-brand equipment and professional instruction.

Of course, any resort is ultimately judged by its accommodations, and Sandals has certainly gone above and beyond when it comes to the luxury and amenities found in their Love Nest Butler Suites®. These sumptuous havens are unparalleled, more connected to the sea and open to the sky than anywhere else in the Caribbean. Guests can find their bliss in the Over-the-Water Villas and Bungalows, and in Rondoval Suites-in-the-Round with plunge pools right on the patio. There are private villas with retractable glass walls and 180° views as far as the eye can see; and suites where guests can swim right to their patio from lagoon-style swimming pools.

In every Love Nest Butler Suite®, butlers provide guests with flawless personalized attention, knowing perfection just isn’t enough. Butlers trained by the Guild of Professional English Butlers handle everything from ensuring a smooth private check-in and unpacking their luggage, to making dinner reservations and delivering freshly prepared refreshments and treats on the beach. Guests staying in the top-tier suites at Sandals Royal Barbados and Sandals Royal Bahamian even receive a red-carpet welcome with complimentary VIP Luxury Transfers from the airport in a chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce or Mercedes-Benz.

Sandals continues to transform the all-inclusive vacation into a privileged 5-star experience like no other, carefully considering every detail that earns them their stars and makes them a brand everyone can trust.
