With its magnificent landscapes giving rise to a rich history that flavors the island’s culture, Antigua is truly a Caribbean utopia. And there’s no better place to experience it than at Sandals Grande Antigua.
Continually voted the “Caribbean’s Most Romantic Resort” at the World Travel Awards, Sandals Grande Antigua is found on Antigua’s most famous beach on Dickenson Bay. There are 365 beaches on Antigua—one for each day of the year—but Dickenson Bay offers the most protected beach on the island. It’s harbored by a mile-long reef, which creates always-calm, crystal-clear cerulean waters perfect for paddleboarding, windsurfing, snorkeling, lazy swims, and sailing. Sandals offers all of these water sports.
In fact, nobody offers more land and water sports than Sandals, including scuba diving for certified divers and tennis courts lit for night play. They even include top-brand equipment and professional instructors. But that’s just the beginning of the story.
Two Vacations in One
At Sandals Grande Antigua, two villages overlooking this spectacular stretch of coastline provide guests with two distinctive experiences. The Six Star Diamond Award-winning Mediterranean Oceanside Village evokes the sense of being on the Italian Riviera, with towering colonnades and an oceanside piazza lined with restaurants and boutiques. It’s also where the island’s largest zero-entry pool—with a swim-up pool bar—is found, just steps from the beach.
Of course, Sandals is known for their utterly romantic Love Nest Butler Suites®—and the Mediterranean One-Bedroom Butler Villas are the ultimate in luxurious accommodations. These sumptuous retreats edging the beach are lavished with luxurious appointments: king-sized four-poster canopied beds, separate living rooms that open to spacious private patios with plunge pools and whirlpools. And every day and night, pampering is provided by a private butler who’ll serve refreshments by the pool, prepare candlelight bubble baths complete with sparkling wine, and make sure every part of your client’s stay is perfect.
The Caribbean Beachfront Village embodies the quintessential charm of the island. Nestled within the resort’s fragrant tropical gardens, the village is dotted with romantic firepits, hammocks, hanging love baskets for two, and garden pools. Guests are surrounded in luxury in gingerbread-trimmed cottages appointed with a contemporary West Indies flair, and Sandals unique luxury suites-in-the-round—the exotic Rondovals—featuring 20-foot conical ceilings, private plunge pools, and the services of a personal butler. In the Caribbean Beachfront Village, everything is just steps from the sea.
5-Star Global Gourmet™ Dining and a Chic Nightlife
At Sandals Grande Antigua, dining is far more than just a meal; it’s a delectable 5-Star Global Gourmet™ experience. Culinary masterpieces are created by internationally trained chefs at 11 specialty restaurants, and every morsel is perfectly paired with unlimited pours of Robert Mondavi Twin Oaks® wines.
Marios serves up a taste of Italy with mouthwatering dishes from the Lombardia region, while Bella Napoli’s wood-fired pizzas offer a casual option right on the piazza. The Drunken Duck takes guests to the heart of England, where scrumptious pub fare is served alongside an impressive selection of ales and liquors. Kimonos serves up the perfect balance of Asian flavors and entertainment, where teppanyaki meals are entertainingly prepared right before guests eyes. Those looking for Caribbean fare will find it at Eleanors, overlooking the beach, and at Barefoot by the Sea, where seafood is served right on the beach, toes in sand. At every venue, the ambience is as authentic as the dishes.
With unlimited premium liquors served at seven bars and lounges, and refreshing cocktails delivered to you by the pool and on the beach, every day and night becomes a celebration at Sandals Grande Antigua. Guests can dance to island rhythms with an uninhibited freedom or join beachfront bonfire parties where dramatic fire-eaters light up the night. They can party all night or find a quiet spot for a romantic interlude around a chic firepit. The night goes on for as long as they want it to, offering everything from the slightly wild and exotic to the modern and lively. And when staying at a resort where everything is included and unlimited, they’re never ready for it to end.
