Sandals in the Caribbean – Always Innovating

10 Mar

You already know that Sandals Resorts offers adult-only all-inclusive resorts throughout the Caribbean. Did you know that Sandals is still innovating? Did you know that Sandals is still expanding? Did you know Sandals has loads of included activities? Did you know that Sandals lists the premium brands of liquor they serve? And did you know Sandals offers some of the most unique romantic accommodations anywhere? The answers are Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. And yes again.

Innovating? Sandals includes gourmet dining at up to 15 exceptional restaurants per resort. And when you stay in a locale that houses more than one Sandals you can share, as in two resorts in Montego Bay, and even three in romantic St Lucia. Along with that you will find up to 9 bars per resort. Sandals has resorts with private islands and Sandals Resorts are typically located on the most beautiful beach on island, as in Sandals Grande St Lucian or Sandals Whitehouse. Innovative is also serving Guinness and Newcastle Brown in British Pubs, or Asian beers in Asian restaurants. That’s not only innovative, but authentic – the way it should be.

Sandals Expansion. Last year Sandals opened what is perhaps their premier property, Sandals LeSource Grenada. This year Sandals is readying Sandals Barbados, which will be their newest addition to the family.

Sandals Resorts include a wealth of activities – all included. Golf, tennis, racquetball, rock climbing, beach volleyball, basketball on land; and snorkeling, scuba diving, paddle boats, hobie cat sailing, windsurfing, kneeboarding, kayaking, aquatics, glass bottom boats, wake boarding, water skiing, tubing, and much more. Divers will love Sandals top-of-the-line equipment, professional gear, custom 49′ Newton dive boats, and twice daily diving for certified divers.

Everybody in the All-Inclusive market boasts “premium” drink brands. But really? The weird tasting stuff in the mysterious unlabeled purple bottle is really NOT a “premium” brand. Our critique of their premium brands is their love affair with Appleton, a Jamaica pride thing. Appleton is hardly a world-class rum. Sandals needs to expand on their exclusive agreement with Appleton for the sake of their clients. Aside from the mandatory Appleton rum, Sandals serves Johnnie Walker Red & Black Label, Jim Beam, Crown Royal, Seagrams VO, Remy Martin VSOP, Absolut, Stolichnaya, Skyy, Bombay Sapphire, Tanqueray, Jose Cuervo (you can tell they don’t have resorts in Mexico), and Jack Daniels. For the most part – premium brands indeed.

Let’s talk about romantic accommodations. Here are a sampling of Sandals Love Nests: Sunset Bluff Oceanfront 2-Story 1 Bedroom Butler Villa suite w/Private Pool at Sandals L Toc; Italian Swim-up Bi-Level 1-Bedroom Butler Suite w/ Patio Tranquility Soaking Tub at Sandals LaSource Grenada; Exotic Beachfront Rondovals (suites in the round) at Sandals Grande Antigua and Sandals Grande St Lucian; Swim-up Suites at Sandals La Source Grenada, Sandals Negril, Sandals Royal Caribbean, Sandals Royal Bahamian, and Sandals Barbados; the Bay Rock Beachfront Suites at Sandals Montego Bay; and of course the ultimate in privacy – the Romeo & Juliet Villa Suites at Sandals Grande Riviera.
