With three decades of providing all-inclusive, couples-only experiences to guests, the 14-property Sandals enterprise has got it down, especially in Jamaica, where there are seven Sandals resorts. Sandals Grande Riviera, on Jamaica’s north coast, recently underwent $20 million worth of renovations. Another $10 million in upgrades is expected early this year. The 529-room hotel is large, which means there are amenities and dining options galore.
Amenities Two Caribbean-inspired Red Lane spas, the new Riviera Beach Club with cabanas, beach access, 18-hole golf course, seven pools, 22 whirlpools and water sports
Dining 15 restaurants, including a sushi bar
Area activities Off-resort excursions include deep-sea fishing, swimming with dolphins, horseback riding, and Jeep and ATV tours.
Wedding perks Free Beautiful Beginnings wedding package with a five-night stay. Sandals Weddings by Martha Stewart is a choice of six wedding themes with color-coordinated palettes, a wedding team and honeymoon amenities, such as breakfast in bed with mimosas.
Rates Double occupancy rates start at $539 per person per night and include meals, snacks, water sports and beverages. (Spa services and golf are extra.)
