INNOVATIVE LUXURY TRAVEL
Sandals® Resorts presents 16 unique escapes across six Caribbean islands, where guests can relax in tropical beauty and enjoy an intimate escape with luxury at every turn. A desire to constantly innovate and provide more for the guest has made Sandals an industry pioneer. Next-level luxury has arrived!
OVER-THE-WATER BUNGALOWS AND VILLAS For those who desire a completely unobstructed view of the Caribbean Sea to share with their special love, Sandals Over-the-Water Bungalows and Villas are the premier choice. With plenty of ways to enjoy the clear water, from suspended hammocks to private pools and Tranquility Soaking Tubs™ for two in the seclusion of a personal verandah, these dreamlike escapes are the absolute most secluded spots available. Whether guests want to spend breakfast in bed watching nature swim under glass floors or embrace nightfall on the deck, Sandals Over-the-Water innovations are the new standard for five-star luxury.
UNPARALLELED BUTLER SERVICE When booking a top-tier suite, guests get the royal treatment from a personal butler that cares for every desire with the utmost attention to detail. Sandals butlers are trained to the highest level of excellence by the Guild of Professional English Butlers, an organization with deep heritage and pride for the art of service. Butlers can fulfill and exceed any request – from drawing a hot bath to bringing you drinks by the pool or reserving a spot on the beach. Merely responding to requests isn’t the height of a Sandals Luxury Included® Vacation. Once a butler learns his or her guests’ preferences, they’ll receive surprises, like specially made desserts or custom cocktails throughout the day – serving as a reminder that they’re in paradise.
INFINITY-EDGE SKYPOOLS Sandals has taken the phrase “the sky is the limit” to heart with this newest creation – infinity-edge pools that blend seamlessly into the horizon. Guests can float in private waters just steps from where they sleep. The glass-edge pools offer some of the best views possible, where couples can appreciate clear skies or vibrant sunsets free from all cares.
PREMIER BAR CONCEPTS If there’s a better way to enjoy unlimited premium spirits or endless pours of Robert Mondavi Twin Oaks® wines, you can count on Sandals to create it. As the leader in revolutionizing the Caribbean with beachfront and swim-up bars, the brand continues to challenge what’s expected. From the Latitudes Overwater Bar at Sandals South Coast, featuring hammocks for two hanging over the waves to The Rabbit Hole, a 1920’s inspired speakeasy at Sandals Ochi, guests can sip the most nuanced drinks at unique locales.
SANDALS ST. LUCIA GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB AT CAP ESTATE Tee off at Saint Lucia’s first 18-hole championship course. Spanning over 6,700 yards with tight greens and winding fairways, even the most experienced golfers will be challenged to stay under par. Playing through a game at Sandals St. Lucia Golf & Country Club at Cap Estate means expertly calculating and precisely measuring each swing. But it’s not all hard work – taking in the island’s beautiful scenery between strokes is effortlessly rewarding.
OVERWATER WEDDING CHAPELS Saying “I do” is one of the most important events in a couple’s journey. That’s why Sandals has created the most romantic way to celebrate the start of forever: chic, intimate chapels set over the Caribbean’s bluest waters. At Sandals Grande St. Lucian, wedding guests can witness two become one with a breathtaking backdrop – verdant, rolling mountains in the distance or watch calm waters join blue skies at Sandals South Coast. One thing is certain – Sandals Over-the-Water Serenity Wedding Chapels are gorgeous spots for couples to declare their love.
BRAND FIRSTS AT SANDALS ROYAL BARBADOS The visionaries of Sandals have created a true masterpiece with the new Royal Barbados property – debuting some brand firsts. This all-suite resort is home to Lovers Lane, a 4-lane bowling alley complete with a craft beer bar serving 19 varieties, and a rooftop pool and bar offering sights of white-sand shores and crystal waters. All signature suites are available here, so the best of Sandals can be indulged in. Whether guests desire the convenience of a swim-up pool at their patio or the luxury of a secluded, gardenlike Rondoval, it’s all waiting to be explored. Booking a Luxury Included® stay means couples get a private paradise to enjoy pure romance. The latest Sandals innovations have only made it easier to indulge in the Caribbean’s beauty.

EAT, PLAY, STAY IN
Golden orange sunsets, soft white-sand beaches, vibrant aqua-blue skies, swaying coconut palms—Punta Cana has all of the right ingredients for paradise perfection. Not only is it the fastest growing tourist destination in the Caribbean, it’s also the largest single destination for golf. If you are looking to surprise your partner with an all-inclusive resort stay for the holidays, or possibly a romantic beach getaway for some rest and relaxation, this is the place for you. To make your visit as easy as possible, here are some quick tips to help you plan an authentic and unforgettable Punta Cana getaway.
At Simon Mansion, a consistently top-rated restaurant inside the Hard Rock Hotel, you can feast on fresh seafood options like ceviches and tartars, as well as Asian-inspired delicacies like charred edamame and crispy sesame rice. For exotic cravings, head to Passion inside the stunning Paradisus Punta Cana. Here, famed Spanish chef Martín Berasategui delivers a tantalizing marriage of Mexican, French and Spanish flavors with dishes such as Kobe steak, warm lobster salad and liquid Brie cheese spheres decorating the menu. For an authentic taste of the Dominican Republic, head to Nam Nam in the quirky Plaza Sol Caribe Shopping Center and order a bowl of tres leches ice cream or a rich, coffee-spiced cake topped with juicy guavas.
While many of Punta Cana’s impressive beaches belong to resorts, Bávaro Beach is open to everyone. And a good thing too, since everyone loves visiting this slice of Caribbean heaven to swim and snorkel in the crystal blue waters. Boat rides are also plentiful, so hop on a sunset sail or fishing expedition to enjoy a view of the island that will leave you speechless. For an immersive experience into the island’s wild interior, visit HorsePlay Punta Cana, a 300-acre plantation home to lush walking trails, a treetop course and horseback riding paths. Adventurous types flock to the river tour to dash through rushing rivers on horseback then fly through the trees on a zip line.
Located on the island’s eastern-most coast, Zoetry Agua Punta Cana is rated highly by travel agents and with good reason. Not only will you enjoy a wealth of luxurious services and gourmet dining through their Endless Privileges® philosophy, but the cane-thatched suites with hardwood floors and natural stone accents just might inspire you to remodel your own home when you return. Overlooking one of the 10 best beaches in the world, the Barceló Bávaro Palace has enough room for the entire family, including spacious family suites with separate rooms for parents and children.
