1 Sandals Montego Bay and Sandals South Coast, Jamaica

The original Sandals resort is defined by its reggae pulse. At Montego Bay, guests experience tropical delights and deep relaxation as they soak up the resort’s five-star treatment. The best bit? You can island-hop to Sandals’ beautifully refurbished South Coast Resort. Here you can enjoy the island’s colourful marine life through the floor of your tropical palace: one of Jamaica’s first ever over-water suites.

Sip a glass of ice-cold rosé on Antigua’s most stunning beach, Dickenson Bay. Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa has been voted the World's Leading Honeymoon Resort, so it’s all about feeling regal here. Talc-soft sand, warm, crystal-clear waters and the dramatic volcanic landscape make this the most romantic and well-known Caribbean destination. This exotic escape is truly fit for a king.

3 Sandals Royal Barbados, Barbados

Discover an infinity pool that extends into the sea, cabana sunbeds, as well as Skypool, Swim-Up and Millionaire Suites. Then there are the resort’s signature Tranquility Tubs for private al fresco bathing and, of course, Sandals’ Butler Elite service. This is the royal treatment Sandals has become famous for. Oh, and don’t forget to book in a little extra: a couple’s massage at Sandals Red Lane® Spa, which was voted the island’s best hotel spa in 2015. Get ready to sit back, relax, and enjoy being pampered like a princess.

4 Sandals Grande St. Lucian Spa & Beach Resort, St. Lucia

It’s said that the twin peaks of Les Pitons, the island's most iconic natural landmark, pair off as beautifully as two people in love. And that sums up the magic of this exquisite Caribbean island. Sandals Grande St. Lucian enhances the innate romance of this island. Set beside the calmest waters in Saint Lucia, a honeymoon here is as tranquil as it is enchanting. Request a room that looks out at the magnificent surrounding volcanic terrain, and sip on a cocktail as you enjoy those breathtaking views.

5 Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa Resort & Offshore Island, Bahamas

We love this adults-only paradise. Sandals Royal Bahamian is pure luxury, with a private island sitting offshore from Sandals’ main Bahamian resort for added exclusivity. It’s perfect for those seeking more privacy. But what really sets this couples-only retreat apart from others is the wealth of exciting activities on offer. With the best snorkelling in the area and an extensive list of water sports to take part in, you and your partner will feel like kings of the sea.
