What takes a holiday from good to outstanding? This is a question all travel companies strive to answer, aiming to deliver the ultimate experience for their guests. Taking a holiday to the next level means exceeding expectations and providing that ‘wow’ factor that can’t be found elsewhere. It’s holidays like these that make an impact, we go home wanting to tell others all about having created loving, long-lasting memories we’ll always treasure. One such company striving to offer guests the chance to escape the ordinary on a dream holiday is Sandals Resorts.
Boasting 17 adults-only resorts across the Caribbean where everything is included, from delectable dining and premium drinks to land and water activities such as golf and snorkelling, plus inviting, spacious accommodation, Sandals ensures guests will want for nothing during their stay. And with 40 plus years experience in providing luxury all-inclusive holidays in the Caribbean and having been voted the World’s Leading All-Inclusive Resorts for 27 years in a row, it’s safe to say they know how to provide guests with an exceptional experience.
However, what really takes a Sandals holiday to the next level are the unique and wonderful experiences that make your stay extraordinary.
One of the most important moments on holiday is the first impression of seeing your room or suite for the first time, it sets the tone for the rest of your stay. When the door opens you want to be stunned by a room that blows you away.
There are plenty of incredible options at Sandals that promise to do just that, with one of the most coveted being their Over-The-Water Bungalows and Villas. These stunning suites are the epitome of luxury, suspended over the water with breathtaking panoramic views of the ocean, with glass floor panels for watching the fish swim below. Other luxury features include over-the-water hammocks, an outdoor Tranquillity Soaking Tub and direct access to the sea from your private deck.
The Over-The-Water Bungalows aren’t the only incredible accommodation that Sandals offers. Other impressive options include SkyPool Suites with private plunge pools in their balconies, Millionaire Suites featuring breathtaking views, and exclusively at Sandals’ newest resort, Sandals Dunn’s River, the Coyaba Sky Rondoval Villas. The first of their kind, the Coyaba Sky Rondoval Villas are the ultimate personal sanctuary for couples with spacious, modern interiors, access to a swim-up pool, a private plunge pool and an expansive open-air roof terrace.
And that’s not all, guests staying in these villas can book a personal stargazing concierge to guide you around the constellations via a telescope on your private rooftop, creating the perfect romantic evening under the twinkling Caribbean sky.
As easy as it is to spend all your time in resort on a Sandals holiday, the opportunity to explore the beautiful island it’s housed on shouldn’t be missed, and it’s never been simpler do so than at Sandals Royal Curaçao.
With two ‘Sandals firsts’ guests can experience the life and culture of the enchanting island with ease. When staying in the exquisite Kurson Island Suites and Awa Seaside Bungalows guests have use of a complimentary Convertible Mini Cooper to tour Curaçao in at their own leisure. The second Sandals first is a $250 dine out credit, if you stay in a butler suite you can dine out at select restaurants on the island, delving into Curaçao’s melting pot of cuisines.
While it’s easy to believe private island escapes are reserved for the rich and famous, at Sandals that’s not the case. An amazing Sandals holiday feature sure to impress are their private islands at select resorts; Sandals Royal Caribbean and Sandals Royal Bahamian.
A quick boat ride across the water takes guests to secluded beaches, restaurants, bars, and even spas, offering a luxurious and dreamy desert island retreat. It’s also at Sandals Royal Caribbean’s private island where you’ll find the aforementioned Over-the-Water Bungalows, ensuring you’ll enjoy ultimate luxury and complete seclusion.
Sandals’ extraordinary experiences don’t stop once you’ve settled in your luxurious room or suite, it continues with the land and water activities on offer. If you’re a lover of golf or have maybe always wanted to try, Sandals has you covered, golf is one of the many included land activities you can enjoy on a Sandals holiday.
Sandals boasts some of the most challenging and prestigious golf courses in Jamaica, St Lucia and the Bahamas and with complimentary round-trip transfers from all nearby resorts, plus included green fees, you would be hard pushed to find another holiday company who provides more.
It isn’t only golfers who will be in their element at Sandals resorts though. The waters of the Caribbean are home to some of the world’s most renowned reefs, plus underwater caves, and shipwrecks: a scuba diver’s paradise. Included complimentary scuba-diving is a rarity on holiday and can be an expensive addition, it’s not however if you’re a Sandals guest. One of their most impressive inclusions is their scuba-diving programme.
Whether you’re a complete beginner or a seasoned diver, you can dive at any resort. Certified divers can dive for free up to twice per day everyday (except arrival and departure day) and for beginners you can book onto optional courses and learn to dive while in resort!
Their dive programme has been voted one of the Top 5 Dive Operations in the Western Hemisphere by PADI® and is an incredible included feature that shouldn’t be passed up.
Scuba-diving is just one of a multitude of other water sports Sandals include. Be guided on a snorkelling trip with an expert team and witness a rainbow of tropical fish, sea turtles, rays and other incredible aquatic life. Or take to the waves with a Hobie Cat or try your hand at water-skiing, it’s easy to discover your next favourite hobby when there is no extra cost to try something new.
And when you think there isn’t anything else your Sandals getaway can offer, guests can indulge in their ‘stay at one, play at all’ exchange programme. At certain resorts guests are invited to use the amenities of a neighbouring resort, whether it be for dining, land or water activities or anything else that takes your fancy.
Of course, there are plenty of other ways Sandals Resorts exceeds expectations, especially with new innovations constantly being introduced so you can be surprised and delighted on every trip.
