Desperate for a bit of rest and relaxation somewhere extra special, just you, your loved ones and a cocktail or two? We feel you. Where better for a little taste of paradise, away from the stresses of your 9-5, than the Caribbean? If you fancy taking your pick from the very best of the Caribbean, our Sandals and Beaches Resorts collection was chosen for precisely that reason.
Named the World’s Leading All-Inclusive Resorts for 20 years running, our Sandals and Beaches Luxury Included® Resorts, and Grand Pineapple Beach Resorts are truly the Caribbean’s finest. We’ve perfected them with you in mind. From Antigua to the Bahamas, from Jamaica to St Lucia, Sandals holidays have something to offer every kind of traveller and holidayer. We guarantee it will be a holiday to remember.
Antigua's beaches are some of the most beautiful in the Caribbean with fine white sands lapped by clear turquoise waters.
With so many from which to choose, it's always possible to find an uncrowded spot to yourself - in general, secluded beaches are more the norm than the exception. Those seeking active water sports should try the vast swathes of Dickenson Bay, Runaway Bay or Jolly Beach, all on the west coast and close to St John's. Also close to the capital are the unspoiled sands of the Five Islands, including Deep Bay and Galley Bay, home to nesting sea turtles.
Across on the east coast, Long Bay Beach is popular for snorkelling and Half Moon Beach boasts beautiful fine soft pink sands and wonderful cooling breezes.
Over 200 pristine white sand islands and 700 cays make up the Bahamas.
The climate is mild year-round, the beaches are excellent and there's plenty to do. One day you can be snorkeling, the next feeding sharks! You can even swim with dolphins - the highlight of many a Bahamas holiday. New Providence is home to Nassau and famous Cable Beach. Grand Bahama has a more laid-back feel with miles of incredible south-facing beaches. The Abaco Islands are larger but less populated, making them ideal for a back-to-nature experience. The Bahamas is known as 'the sailing capital of the world', and hopping aboard a yacht is certainly a great way to explore its hidden coves and deserted beaches!
Experience post-card perfect white sandy beaches and the emerald seas of Barbados.
Sandals Barbados Resort and Spa is the latest addition to the Sandals portfolio, located in St Lawrence Gap on the bustling South Coast of the island.
Barbados offers a culture that is steeped in history and that will make a lasting impression, with art, restaurants and plenty of activities this island has something to suit all tastes!
Christopher Columbus once claimed that Jamaica was the "fairest island that eyes have beheld" and we're sure you'll agree
Discover beautiful sandy beaches, hidden coves, verdant landscapes, gushing waterfalls, deep lush valleys and majestic mountains. One of Jamaica's most popular natural attractions, Dunn's River Falls, located near Ocho Rios, is a stunning 600 foot waterfall which cascades down to the beach.
Boasting some of the Caribbean's loveliest mountain scenery, the volcanic island of St Lucia is covered in lush vegetation.
Mix the stunning natural scenery of St Lucia with near-perfect weather, total relaxation and plenty of fun and you’ll have the perfect recipe for a very special holiday in the Caribbean.
St Lucia has lots of sandy beaches, a scenic mountainous landscape and thick lush rainforests.
Sandals & Beaches hotels
So much more than all-inclusive, our Sandals resorts are Luxury Included®. The very best locations, world-class facilities, the finest gourmet dining and impeccable service are just some of the ways we’re taking all-inclusive to the next level.
We know it’s the little things that take luxury to the next level. Our Sandals resorts are carefully kitted out with those extra special touches like your very own private pool, a world-class selection of restaurants and bars and fitness centres and spas. Plus, some rooms are two-storeys, for the ultimate home-away-from-home experience. Of course, every Sandals guest is waited on hand and foot by their own personal butler, so your every need will be catered for throughout your stay. Honeymooners, delight in the special extras we’ll shower you with.
Speaking of honeymoons, we do romance well at Virgin Holidays. Let’s get one thing straight: our getaways and retreats are perfect for everyone; our Sandals family holidays in particular are expertly crafted to suit families of all shapes and sizes (if we do say so ourselves), and groups of friends will relish their stay, too. That being said, if there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that our holidays make for the ideal getaway for two people in love, and we’ll utterly spoil you both from the second you land.
Our Beaches resorts are so much more than hotels: The fabulous Beaches Ocho Rios resort boasts its own spa, golf resort and waterpark, as well as 6 restaurants so you’re never out of dining options. Sporting activities aren’t exactly sparse, and our Sesame Street® themed kids club’ will keep the little ones happy while you make the most of the beautiful location (and the peace and quiet!) Taking teenagers with you? Our Beaches Negril resort may just be the answer to your prayers: if the white-sand beaches and watersports don’t do it for them, we’re willing to bet the Scratch DJ Academy® and Xbox® Play Lounge will. Adults can make the spa their sanctuary, or head straight for the bar.
Also in Jamaica, enjoy some sun and some culture to boot in our spectacular Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort and Private Island. Whether you’re lazing by the sea on the resort’s private offshore island or sipping cocktails by your private lagoon-style pool, it’ll feel like two holidays in one, both of which will be entirely unforgettable.
Stay at the Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort and Offshore Island, Bahamas and bask in the dreamy, picture-perfect ocean-front setting in all of its aquamarine waters and pristine beach glory. A honeymooner’s haven. Foodies, head to our fabulous Sandals Grenada Resort & Spa in Grenada, which has been appropriately nicknamed the “Spice Isle”. Every room and suite is to die for, but if you’re looking to really treat yourself, upgrade to one of the Millionaire, Rondaval or Skypool suites. Luxury does its own talking.
We could go on for days about all of our wonderful luxury Sandals & Beaches resorts, but instead, why not let the pictures speak for themselves?
