Turquoise water, white sand, gourmet discovery dining and guaranteed romance.
Here’s a thought. Start planning your honeymoon by making a list of everything you want to experience. Certainly a variety of restaurants and gourmet discovery dining has to be near the top of the list (including premium drinks of course!). Then, consider the activities you’d enjoy. And, don’t forget the romance. Sandals knows how to work romance best. That, plus checking off all those other items on your list, makes their seven locations across Jamaica ideal options for your honeymoon destination. Each resort has the markings of Sandals, but has its own personality and unique location. Sandals is so serious about offering romantic getaways that they created “Love Nests”, luxurious suites that are exotic, elegant, and above all else, private. They include room service and the option of butler service. Some Love Nest suites have a private patio and pool so you can truly escape the rest of the world. They are the perfect indulgence for newlyweds. After checking in to your romantic accommodation, the rest is up to you! Sandals has something for everyone, from adventure to pure relaxation.
Take advantage of some of the clearest turquoise waters in the world with snorkeling (or scuba diving, for a bigger thrill), waterskiing, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, paddle boarding or a trip on a glass-bottom boat. If you’re more of a land lover, take in the action from a comfortable lounge chair on the pristine white sand. Part of the honeymoon is to relax, of course, so take time to unwind with a little pampering. The signature Red Lane® spa experiences will leave you feeling renewed and stress-free. Indulge in a facial, manicure or pedicure, or experience a romantic couples massage.
Choose between the “Scents of Love” massage, which is done by candlelight and based upon your chosen sensory experience, or the “Deep Flowing Water” massage, designed to release muscle blockages and rejuvenate you from head to toe. Sandals locations in Jamaica have up to 16 restaurants, each one with a different type of cuisine: Mediterranean, Caribbean, Asian, Italian, French and more, many featuring island seafood favourites for which Jamaica is famous. And everything can be paired with exclusive Mondavi® wines. However you choose to spend your time at Sandals, don’t forget about the romance and connecting with your partner. Enjoy a snuggle by an outdoor firepit, under the stars. Share a cuddle in a hammock among the lush foliage. Enjoy a secluded candlelit dinner on the beach. Enjoy paradise.
