Virgin Holidays View
The most exquisite resort to ever call the Caribbean home, Sandals Royal Plantation, quite simply redefines luxurious island escapism. Sitting on a bluff overlooking, not 1, but 2 silky sand twin-cove beaches and the shimmering Caribbean, the intoxicating sanctuary grants each of its 74 sumptuous suites heart-stopping views of the ocean and exclusive Butler Service. Bask blissfully on spectacular glorious golden-sand coves, where you can spend countless hours soaking in the sunshine and sipping on 'mangosas' delivered by unobtrusive Beach Butlers or unwind with a relaxing treatment in the exclusive Red Lane® Spa*.
