Sandals Resorts is a company that offers all-inclusive retreats for couples. Its properties are upscale and can be found in the sunny Caribbean. Typical facilities include numerous restaurants, an array of bars, beautiful swimming pools, state-of-the-art fitness centers, and luxurious spas. Of course, the guaranteed location on an idyllic beach might just be the best thing when it comes to Sandals properties. It only gets better when you consider how comprehensive the Sandals all-inclusive program is.
At most all-inclusive resorts, guests often have to pay extra for activities such as motorized watersports activities and multiple scuba diving sessions. This isn't the case at Sandals Resorts, however. Top-shelf drinks are also included in the upfront rates, which is relatively uncommon in the industry, and depending on which Sandals resort you choose, including unlimited golf can be a possibility. It's these kinds of things that help to set the chain apart from other hotel brands. There's also the company's exchange program. If another Sandals Resort is close to the resort that you are staying at, you can zip on over and use the facilities. Free transfers are even provided on most occasions. If nothing else, it can be fun to check out the beach atmosphere at another resort.
Sandals Resorts Bahamas
Of the resorts that the Sandals brand has to offer, two are found in the Bahamas. They are the Sandals Royal Bahamian and the Sandals Emerald Bay. As is true of all Sandals properties, both of these Bahamas retreats enjoy immaculate beachfront locations and offer a lot in the way of elegance and comfort. Among the highlights when it comes to the Sandals Royal Bahamian in particular is the fact that it offers trips to a small island found just offshore. On this island is a hip beach club, not to mention some exceptional beaches. At the Sandals Emerald Bay, the relative isolation and seclusion of the resort is among the most alluring attributes.
Jamaica is home to the most Sandals Resorts. There are seven total properties in the country, and they are all situated on idyllic beaches. One of the best things about there being so many Sandals Resorts in Jamaica is the fact that guests who choose to stay at one can play at all the others on the side. The change of scenery can help to keep things fresh, and it can be fun to see what another property's restaurants have to offer. The Sandals resorts that are found in the Montego Bay area are especially close to one another, so it doesn't take long to make the transfer.
Sandals Montego Bay
The Sandals Montego Bay is one of the Sandals properties that calls the Montego Bay area home. A fine example of a Sandals property in general, this resort offers laid-back Caribbean elegance, not to mention butler service, so guests can truly live the good life. When the urge to get active sets in, strolling along Jamaica's longest private beach is among the options for things to do. Other activities that can be added to the agenda include diving, water skiing, swimming in one of four pools, sailing, and kayaking. It's not all about watersports, however. On dry land, it's possible to play some beach volleyball, some tennis, or some billiards, among other things. Spa treatments can also be enjoyed during a stay at the Sandals Montego Bay, and they are about the only things that cost extra. It's living made easy, especially when you also consider the tasteful and well-equipped guest units. No less than seventeen different room and suite categories are available, so guests should have little trouble finding their ideal lodging fit.
The Sandals Negril is one of the other Sandals properties that call Jamaica home. Found on Seven Mile Beach, this sprawling, oceanfront resort certainly has beach enthusiasts covered. Complementing the beach are lovely and expansive grounds that feature things such as pools and walking trails. Six restaurants combine to offer a variety of interesting dining options, and guests can indulge in all kinds of fun activities when they're not indulging in good food. Taking a ride on a glass-bottom boat, swimming up to a poolside bar, and playing some shuffleboard are just some of the ways to keep busy. In the guest units, four poster beds add to the elegant edge, as is true in all Sandals guest units, and guests also have things such as plasma TVs and air conditioning at their disposal.
Antigua and St Lucia round out the destinations where Sandals Resorts can be found. There are four different resorts between Antigua and St Lucia, and they include the Sandals Grande Antigua resort and spa. Known for being especially romantic, the Sandals Antigua sits on renowned Dickenson Bay and offers some amazing guest units. Among these guests units are exotic suites that have their own private plunge pools.
