ADVENTURE ALWAYS AWAITS IN JAMAICA. ALWAYS.

Pristine beaches and secluded escapes aren’t the only ways to fill one’s days in Jamrock. Culturally rich and mesmerizingly beautiful, Jamaica is a preferred playground because fun is just as easy to find outside the comfy confines of a Sandals Resort, if you know where to look…

Black River, Ys Falls & Appleton Estate Rum Tour

Crossing paths with a crocodile or a chestnut-bellied cuckoo is par for the course while you drift down the Black River, a long, lazy waterway flanked on both sides by dense and vibrant tropical vegetation. Unspoiled and spectacular, the river run gives way to the natural wonder of YS Falls, spilling seven waterfalls into tranquil pools all seductively girded by lush forest. After that, it’s on to a luscious lunch and a tour of the world-renowned Appleton Estate — where welcome samplings of some of the very finest rum ever aged is assured.

Island Routes Reggae Sunset catamaran cruise

Experience the magic of the MoBay coastline from the casual comfort of the Island Routes Reggae Sunset Cruiseliner. You’ll even have time to stop in Margaritaville, literally! Made famous by Jimmy Buffet’s hit, this liquid locale comes complete with water trampolines, floating obstacle courses, and a 12-story waterslide designed to drop you right into the Caribbean drink. Dry off back aboard with DJ-spun music and savoury snacks as the setting sun disappears over the ocean horizon.

MINI routes

Jamaica ToursTake the wheel of a MINI Cooper for some mega fun with a local guide: your backseat chaperone will show you all the hidden gems of Jamaica. Pit stops for traditional island snacks, both sweet and savoury, between quick scenic road trips taking you from markets and monuments to expansive beaches and refreshing waterfalls, slots this Island Routes adventure high on every traveller’s to-do list. Buckle in to see, taste and touch all the authentic stuff that puts the Rock on the map.

Sandals: the Top Caribbean Resort

December 5, 2018 | By |

HOT WHITE SAND. COOL BLUE SEA. BIG GREEN HEART.

Jamaica Sandals

Ever the iconic getaway for lovers—and the reason Jamaica’s been burned into the mind of every wanderer as a coveted paradise—Sandals truly has no equal.

Consistent culinary excellence through their 5-Star Global Gourmet™ program; singular Over-the-Water resort design merging ocean bliss with architectural beauty; and a generous spirit exemplified by their Stay at One-Play at Six resort policy—Sandals has emerged as a hallowed holiday hideaway.

Recognizing that cocktails don’t have to be toxic for Mother Earth, Sandals was the first all-inclusive to pair up with Oceanic Global and commit to skipping plastic straws to save the sea. The mindful mega-brand is also part of the scientifically rigorous EarthCheck program.

Unsurprisingly, they’ve been voted the Caribbean’s Leading Hotel Brand for the 25th year in a row by the World Travel Awards. If their pristine properties are any indication, the next quarter century will shine just as bright for this 5-Star, beachfront hotel chain where fun and luxury are always included…

Sandals South Coast

ALL BEACHFRONT. ALL LUXURY. ALL ON JAMAICA’S SOUTH COAST.

Sandals South Coast

Want to get rocked to sleep by warm, salty sea breezes and an oceanic lullaby? Silly question. Sandals South Coast’s new Over-the-Water Bungalows are living monuments to the jaw-dropping, natural beauty of the Caribbean Sea; and they manage, almost magically, to soothe and restore any traveller who slumbers within. Once rested, you’ll be sprightly enough for a day-long playdate spent trading time with sun, sea and sand—this is Jamaica’s premier all-beachfront, all-oceanview resort.

Sandals  Montego Bay

A TRUE BEACHFRONT RESORT ON JAMAICA’S LARGEST EXCLUSIVE WHITE-SAND BEACH.

The flagship of escapist, adults-only fun and the first of its kind, Sandals MoBay pampers every Club and Butler guest right from the runway all the way to their reef-protected beachfront resort and back again with luxe BMW transportation. Once there, authentic Jamaican fare can be had seaside at the Jerk Shack, or if sipping above the waves is more your cup of relaxation, there’s the new Latitudes Overwater Bar. Ever evolving, more eateries and amenities are being added all the time. Those about to take the plunge would do well to keep the upcoming Over-the-Water Serenity Wedding Chapel in mind.

Sandals Ochi

TRENDY WHEN YOU WANT IT, PRIVATE WHEN YOU DON’T.

Switching between sun-dappled days and the quiet comfort of an oceanside cocktail club come nightfall is a cinch with a quick hop over to the Rabbit Hole, the Caribbean’s very first speakeasy bar. Just make sure you get the secret password before stepping into the past to tipple a little while watching live entertainment. Nestled in the heart of Ocho Rios’ rolling hills and flawless seascapes, it’s plain to see why this Sandals setting is the top honeymooners’ retreat of the Caribbean.

Sandals Royal Caribbean

BRITAIN TO BALI –  ADVENTURES IN JAMAICA.

Garnering top honours as Jamaica’s leading resort, the Royal Caribbean remains the very zenith of idyllic, tranquil isolation. How idyllic? Private island idyllic. Tucked away offshore on a secluded sandbar in Montego Bay, no desire goes unsatiated here. Of course, luxury private BMW transport service is also included for all Club and Butler guests. And yes, those dreamy Over-the-Water Bungalows and Villas live here too.

Sandals Negril

THE LONGEST AND BEST STRETCH  OF NEGRIL’S SEVEN MILE BEACH.

Sandals Negril

Arguably the coolest hot spot for  sun-hungry satisfaction seekers, Sandals Negril stacks stylish  two-story Villas against a breath-stealing backdrop of lush tropical forest right on the cusp of a 7-mile stretch of unparalleled powdery-white, turquoise-blue perfection. With sea mist making your wake-up calls and the ocean as your front yard, spend your down time lazing in a beach lounger or water skiing on the surf. Here, your days, like your nights, truly belong to you.

Sandals Royal Plantation

AN ALL BUTLER, ALL SUITE,  ALL OCEANVIEW BOUTIQUE RESORT.

This is where luxury truly lives. An exclusively small batch of ocean-facing, beachfront suites all serviced 24 hours a day with white-gloved care by attentive butlers. Grand, manicured gardens punctuated with roaming peacocks and the only champagne and caviar bar in Jamaica make this an opulent oasis like no other. Its ranking on Trip Advisor’s Top 25 Luxury Hotel list is well deserved. Oh, and the beaches have butlers here too, so a Caribbean cocktail while wavelets lap your toes isn’t out of the question.

Sandals Montego Bay: The Hottest Resort in Jamaica

September 17, 2018 | By |

New. Hot. Authentic.

Sand so silver-white it shimmers. Crystalline aquamarine seascapes that look like they were filtered by cosmic forces. Lush and verdant tropical forest canopies. The finest (and spiciest) flavours in the Caribbean. People as warm as the Jamaican sun—both of which will leave a golden X on your heart, forever. There is truly no place like Jamaica.

Stay in Montego BayNestled in the northwest of all its life-affirming wonder is the quintessential luxury sanctuary for lovers. Is it romantic? Well, there’s a proper Love Nest Suite®, if that’s any indication. No other resort does sensual, adults-only experiences better than Sandals®—unsurprisingly, their Montego Bay hotspot, where it all started, is no exception. And good news, paramours! This flagship escape is now fresher, more fabulous and, if you can believe it,
hotter than ever.

Restaurants Montego BayA Day in MoBay at Sandals
Luxury shuttles with select rooms will usher you from the airport to a premier, private beach of pure powder and incredible accommodations in mere minutes. Every possible all-inclusive amenity is yours here—even full-access play passes to Sandals Inn and Sandals Royal Caribbean, should a playcation from your playcation be in order.

Luxury Suites SandalsSink into the Tranquility Soaking Tub™ for two, and watch sun meld with seascape, or swim right up to your room in brand new luxury suites, while the Butler Elite service easily attends to your every whim with white-gloved precision, 24-7.

If you manage to leave your bed for some flavour instead, your taste buds will have unlimited entry to impeccable eateries, some of which will have you savouring authentic Jamaican fare right on the beach while your sand-buried toes curl in ecstasy. If that’s not enough gustatory goodness, there are three more restaurants on the way.

There’ll also soon be an Over-the-Water Wedding Chapel for next-level nuptials. Have your sacred vows consecrated by the sanctity of the sea and consider that every Sandals Resort allows you access to the signature “Aisle to Isle” program, with plenty inspirations to design your celebration of love so it’s as unique as you are. Your gathering would be incomplete without a little media magic? The new fully stocked multi-media conference centre will easily seat 300 guests for any event.

Weddings Sandals Montego Bay

Sunup is fun up at Sandals

From ultra-fun tubing and serious snorkelling to satisfying sailing and playful paddle boarding, Sandals Montego Bay offers a gateway to the calm, reef-rich waters that define the Caribbean. Still, energy-intensive activities are as plentiful here as lazy days spent relaxing in restorative rays of sunshine.

Scuba Diving Montego BayWant a massage seaside? Done. Or melt your stress indoors at the signature Red Lane® Spa offering mindful self-care and welcome rejuvenation—body, mind and spirit. Of course, four freshwater pools are yours at all times if you’d rather soak your troubles. You’ll also enjoy unlimited access to three soothing whirlpools should your brand of stress need something of a twist. Landlubbers seeking leisure activities can hit the courts, shoot hoops or shoot pool, play board games or challenge each other (or other couples) to prestigious, high-stakes ping-pong matches.

Pool Sandals Montego BayTypical day at Sandals Montego Bay – Sundown, live it up

If you want to go extra and glow up come sundown, after-hours parties are always going off between the sand and the stars at Sandals. So are weekly theme nights in the wildly fun carnival style—fire breathers, more epic eats and fanned, feather headdresses colour midnight-blue skies as music fills the ocean air. For expertly poured cocktails, there will soon be Latitudes Overwater Bar, where you’ll walk, or dance, on water as you sip the night away. Of course, darts and a dram of whisky will complement everything on tap at The Cricketers Pint, a proper English pub where freshly pulled conversation is available every evening.
