10 luxury inclusions when you stay at a Sandals Resort

Sandals are the world’s only 5-star luxury-included® Resorts and even better, they offer more quality inclusions than any other luxury beach escape. Renowned as the resorts made for love, it’s no wonder that Sandals are considered one of the most romantic holiday resorts on the planet. Below shows you just a selection of what’s included when you stay at a Sandals Caribbean Resort.

1. A luxurious room or suite

You’re spoilt for choice with accommodation at Sandals Resorts. From spectacular Over-the-Water Villas and dramatic cliffside suites with 180-degree views to lavish Skypool Butler Suites with infinity-edge plunge pools and unique Rondoval Suites.

2. 5-Star Global Gourmet cuisine 

Sandals Resorts offer up to 16 speciality restaurants per resort and as many as 23 cuisines from around the world. Also with the ‘Stay at One, Play at All’ exchange privileges, you can dine at the nearby Sandals resorts as well. You literally won’t need to dine in the same restaurant twice (unless you want to!).

3. Premium brand spirits included

At Sandals Luxury Included® resorts you can enjoy unlimited pours of your favourite tipple around the clock. Their bars are open from early in the morning until late at night. All their rooms are stocked daily with beer and wine, plus their Club and Butler suites include a variety of spirits.
