There are many reasons why a holiday in Jamaica is a must: the beauty, the vibrancy and culture, the people, not to mention the food and the gorgeous white-sand beaches… And where better to stay on this island than at a luxury all-inclusive, Sandals Resort? Luckily, there are seven Sandals resorts in Jamaica to pick from, including their newly opened Sandals Dunn’s River Resort.
If you are unfamiliar with Sandals there are two words that sum up who they are and what they do, ‘luxury’ and ‘all-inclusive’. Sandals has been leading the way in all-inclusive luxury, exclusively in the Caribbean for over 40 years. They have accolades by the handful to back-up that statement, including being voted the World’s Leading All-Inclusive Resorts for 27 years in a row at the World Travel Awards.
There are 17 Sandals couples-only resorts across the Caribbean where everything is included, from gourmet dining with cuisines from all over the world, to land and water activities like beach volleyball and paddle-boarding. Plus, you will find glorious beaches, expansive pools, innovative accommodation and unlimited premium liquor to enjoy. So, when Sandals guarantee you a blissful getaway it’s hard not to believe them.
Sandals Dunn’s River is the latest resort to offer the Sandals Luxury Included® experience. This newly opened resort invites couples to slip into peaceful tranquility and forget the stresses of everyday life in a tropical haven. It is unsurprising that guests feel their worries melt away, especially after being shown their room, with luxurious sanctuaries awaiting guests here.
Some of the most spectacular suites include the beautiful Coyaba Sky Villa Swim-up Rondoval Butler Suites and the Beachfront Skypool Suites. These accommodations take luxury to a whole new level, both with instant pool access from either a private balcony Skypool or a wide, swim-up river pool. Their expansive size and stylish interiors could make you question leaving your room at all, and with private outdoor space in both, (a whole open-air terrace atop the Coyaba Sky Rondoval Villas) you can see why you wouldn’t!
However, you would be greatly missing out not to venture beyond your room, because, like all Sandals resorts, Sandals Dunn’s River has so much on offer. Whether you like your holidays action-packed or relaxation filled Sandals Dunn’s River is completely accommodating.
There are a plethora of land and water activities at your fingertips, from the likes of kayaking, Hobie Cats, tennis, a fitness centre and even scuba diving*, to name a few. Golf lovers are also in luck, because with green fees and transfers included for the nearby Upton Estate Golf & Country Club, a premier 18-hole golf course that’s recognised as one of the finest courses in Jamaica by Golf Digest and Frommer’s Travel Guide, you won’t suffer holiday golf withdrawals. The only hard part is deciding what and how much to do!
Then of course, for days when doing nothing is required, the resort offers a stunning private white-sand beach with crystal clear, turquoise waters, alongside a choice of five pools and two river pools to lounge around to fulfil that need.
Good food is always something we consider when choosing where to holiday and neither Jamaica nor Sandals resorts fall short on that area.
At Sandals Dunn’s River your taste buds will be more than satisfied with 12 gourmet restaurants to try, all serving an assortment of cuisines from Asian to Greek or French to Jamaican and all included. Be sure to try some local flavours on your trip too, available in resort at The Jerk Shack restaurant or Dunn’s Rum Bar. Then for those sunset drinks or cocktails around the pool, unlimited premium liquors and expertly crafted cocktails are served at nine bars, including a swim-up bar.
If you’re still looking for more at Sandals Dunn’s River, guests of this resort can enjoy complimentary exchange privileges with nearby Sandals Ochi. The ‘Stay at One, Play at Two’ privilege means guests can experience the restaurants, beach, pools and every other amenity on offer at Sandals Ochi with round-trip transfers also available to take you to and from the resorts.
Beyond Sandals Resorts, Jamaica is home to a magnificent landscape of rolling mountains, large white-sand beaches that line the coast, lush tropical foliage, cascading waterfalls and streaming rivers that crisscross over them all.
There’s roughly 19,000 acres of tropical rainforest in Jamaica filled with vivid flowering vines, luscious greenery, fascinating wildlife, (30 species of birds alone) and beautiful flora and fauna. Many trails run through the rainforest and guided tours are readily available providing an amazing, memorable opportunity to completely immerse yourself in the environment.
With Sandals Resorts a variety of adventure tours can be booked with local tour company Island Routes at an extra cost from the desk in resort ahead of arrival, Jeep rides, catamaran cruises, a Dunn’s River Falls experience and more are all on offer.
The rhythmical sounds of reggae melodies float across the island and are just one of the clear indicators to the vibrant yet laid-back Jamaican culture. The people themselves are genuinely friendly and always hospitable. Jamaica is truly a country you don’t want to miss off your bucket list.
Sandals all-inclusive Jamaican getaways aim to embody the very spirit of this enchanting island and immerse you in the warm hospitality and wonders that the nation has become renowned for.
