Most Amazing Pools – Sandals Royal Barbados, Barbados
Sandals Royal Barbados is the newest Sandals resort and wow, what an amazing place it is! Its décor throughout is modern and chic. The atmosphere here is sophisticated and laid back, which is a perfect combination for a honeymoon. The beach is superb but the highlight of Sandals Royal Barbados must be its swimming pools. There is not just one but in fact two breath-taking infinity pools here. Our favourite infinity pool is the one that is on the rooftop simply because you get great panoramic views whilst sipping on a cocktail in the pool. The other infinity pool is on the beachside and has its own swim-up bar, which we cannot complain about either.
Has The Best Beach – Sandals Emerald Bay, Bahamas
When it comes to powdery white sand beaches, turquoise waters and snorkelling, you will not find it better than at Sandals Emerald Bay in the Bahamas. This is one of the best Sandals all round and is proven with the many awards that it has received over the years. The beach is one of the best you will relax on as after all, it is what the Bahamas are famous for. If you want to enjoy the beach views but be by the pool, that is not a problem as the swimming pool is spectacular and right on the beachfront. The beach is made even better by the unbelievably clear, turquoise waters that makes it a great spot to do some snorkelling.
Greatest For Scuba Diving – Sandals Grenada, Grenada
You can enjoy scuba diving at all the Sandals resorts and is in fact included in the all-inclusive package for those that are scuba certified. However, the resort that guests seem to love the most for scuba diving is Sandals Grenada. There is a good mix of dive sites around this island plus lots of coral reefs that are full of life. As a result, you have plenty of chances to spot fishes of all varieties, turtles, octopus, nurse sharks, barracuda and more. Whilst in Grenada, you should not miss out on discovering the world’s first Underwater Sculpture Park as it is an experience like no other.
Most Romantic Resort– Sandals Grande Antigua, Antigua
Antigua is known as the romantic island of the Caribbean so it is only right that Sandals have kept up with this tradition with their resort in Antigua. This has been proven by being voted as the Most Romantic Resort in the World! The location of Sandals Grande Antigua is on one of the best of the island’s 365 beaches, Dickenson Bay. We love the charming seaside garden oasis of the Caribbean Beachfront Village and then stepping into a realm of chic sophistication where European grandeur unfolds from the hillside to villas-by-the-sea at the all-suite Mediterranean Oceanview Village.
For The Best Nightlife – Sandals Ochi, Jamaica
If you both like to party and make new friends, Sandals Ochi is an ideal resort to do just this. Relax and sip on your favourite cocktail during the day, sing at the piano bar in the evening before going out when you are in the mood for a party! The reason why I think that Sandals Ochi has the best nightlife is because of the speakeasy bar, The Rabbit Hole. A 20s inspired bar with the super talented resident singer Mama, it is an amazing experience taking you back in time. To enter, you have to even get a secret password that changes each day just like the old speakeasy bars in the 20s. Sandals Ochi also boasts 16 different restaurants so if you want to take it a little easy one night but still be sociable, there are plenty of dining options to do just this.
