Honeymoon Heaven with Sandals Resorts

From our photo shoot by Sandals Negril Photographer 

First comes Love.  Then comes Marriage.  Then comes a Honeymoon at one of the most picturesque and heavenly Sandals Resorts!!

When I get calls from honeymoon clients, my first recommendation is always one of the 15 spectacular Sandals resorts sprinkled throughout the Caribbean.  There is a Sandals resort for every type of honeymoon couple and it’s my job to narrow down the choices so my couples come back refreshed, reinvigorated and ready to begin their new life as Mr & Mrs.  And so far, Sandals honeymoons have never disappointed!  Why you might ask?  That’s because of their luxuriously romantic settings, 5 Star Service , 5 Star Gourmet Dining and endless included activities to keep even the most restless of clients delighted and fulfilled.

And what about social distancing in this age of Covid-19?  Well, Sandals already had that covered!  Their intimate resorts are already set up for romantic couple experiences so social distancing clients was a breeze for the resorts.  Plus, their Sandals Protocols of Cleanliness™️  assure clients of a safe and healthy honeymoon.

So what’s included in a Sandals’ Honeymoon?  Well let me tell you!


First, there is an array of accommodations to fit almost every budget and desire, but I highly recommend for honeymooners, Sandals’ Butler suites, with private butlers whose aim is to make their honeymoon the most romantic and special experience of their newly married lives.  These butlers are trained to anticipate your needs even before you know you have them, as I experienced on my last Sandals’ vacation.    Sandals offers up to 4 categories of room types at any Sandals resort ranging from luxury, club (concierge), Butler and their most intimate category, the Butler LoveNest Suites.  


Imagine starting your new life together nestled into your amazingly comfortable King Size bed, overlooking your private patio with your very own plunge pool and lounging area, or better yet, your very own over-the-water bungalow, far away from the rest of the guests.  Doesn’t that sound amazing?  Your butler brings your meals to you, sets up your beach loungers including a cooler of your favourite beer or cold waters and anything else you might desire, 24 hours a day.  I can give you more information on these rooms and services so be sure to contact me at the link provided!

Meals at Sandals are a culinary delight no matter which resort you choose for your honeymoon.  You can travel the “world” throughout your selected resort with 5 Star Gourmet meals prepared by internationally acclaimed chefs with a variety of restaurant experiences and sizes.  For a fee you can also arrange for a romantic candlelight dinner for two beachfront or garden side.

Toasting to your new life together on a Sandals Honeymoon, you will find a large variety of bars to choose from, such as the unique over-the-water Latitudes° and Rooftop bars at certain resorts, swim up bars, pubs and piano bars at every resort and even a “speak easy” bar at Sandals Ochi where a password is required to get inside.  As part of your 5-Star Service at a Sandals bar, you’ll find premium liquors and wines, with the majority of these all-inclusive, including 6 different Robert Mondavi wine selections.  You can choose to sip a cocktail fireside by one of the many fire pits on resort, or make new friends around one of the lively evening bars.  Butler suite guests’ butlers will bring your favourite fruity drink to you beachside under a palypa.  So many choices… so little time!

Honeymooners at a Sandals resort can decide to snuggle in a hammock beachside or lounge poolside with a good book, or head to the Sports Center to grab a kayak, paddle board or Hobie cat to get out on the water for some romantic fun.  For those certified Scuba Diving couples and snorkelers, there are complimentary dive/snorkel trips included daily and at specific resorts you can also head behind the boat to waterski, wakeboard or tube.  Specific resorts also offer water trikes, windsurfing and snuba* (*for a fee).  Not Padi certified for diving?  You can take a 3 hour course to enjoy 1 complimentary open dive and if you think you’d like to enjoy more than the one dive, you can train online ahead with their e-learning program* and complete your training with the Padi instructor on location to enjoy certification all over the world.

For active honeymooners there are a variety of land and fitness activities available during Sandals’ stays.    Choose between tennis, golf, fitness classes, rock-climbing and beach and lawn games to name a few.  Sandals Royal Barbados even has an indoor bowling alley for rainy days in Paradise.  If you desire, you will never be bored on vacation which is great for couples who need a relaxing setting, but also need to be active.

Every Sandals Resort has numerous land activities available
Nothing says post-wedding relaxation like spa treatments at Sandals’ Red Lane Spas, where many honeymoon couples enjoy a relaxing couples massage.  As your travel agent, I can assist you in planning this special event prior to your arrival so all the details are set for you before you step foot on island.  I’m also available to help you prebook your spa treatments, special events (like the candlelight dinner above) and your Island Route tours to explore the destination.  These items are additional in cost and also make great wedding gift or bride/groom’s gift ideas.  Just reach out to me prior to departure to set up these up or have your guests reach out to me for assistance.

Some honeymooners choose with their Sandals honeymoon to do something called a “Honeymoon Hop”, where they split their honeymoon between a couple of Sandals locations either within the same island (where there are multiple resort locations, like in Jamaica or St. Lucia) or they do a short island-hop to neighbouring islands, like between Antigua, Grenada and Barbados.   Some Sandals’ destination wedding couples choose to marry on one resort and honeymoon on another.  (You can read all about Sandals’ weddings on my previous post).  Lots of opportunities to enjoy more of Sandals’ 5-Star Luxury!

With so many options available, it’s important for Honeymooners to have a Certified Sandals Specialist like myself available to help narrow down which Sandals Resort location is the perfect choice for their special first vacation as a married couple.  That’s what I’m here for and what I love to do for honeymoon couples!

Sandals isn’t just for honeymooners though.  It is also the perfect suggestion for a special milestone birthday, anniversary or couples getaway with friends.

If you or an engaged couple you know are looking for a romantic location for a honeymoon or milestone couples getaway, you can reach out to me for my expertise in choosing the perfect Sandals for your vacation needs.  
Before I go though, let me give you some last minute information on some honeymoon/anniversary PERKS:  
Wedding couples celebrating your honeymoon within 30 days from your wedding date, we can, with a copy of your marriage license or wedding invitation, request a Sandals Honeymoon Package for you, that includes:  sparkling wine upon arrival, first evening special turndown service and a decadent breakfast in bed for a morning of your choice!  
And because Sandals is all about love, they have a special Anniversary gift for couples looking to celebrate their wedding anniversary with the gift of a free anniversary night, available on 7 night or more bookings in either a Club or Butler suite room.  Again, this must be booked within 30 days of your anniversary date with proof of your wedding license so dust that baby off and call me to get your Sandals’ anniversary trip booked!  This is a great idea for honeymooners to make a Sandals vacation an annual event – don’t you think?  We can even set you up with a layaway plan to help you budget for your honeymoon or anniversary trip!
Contact me at https://linktr.ee/shawkes_vacationdreammaker and I will be thrilled to assist you and provide the details you need for the honeymoon (or anniversary) of a lifetime with a honeymoon at Sandals Resorts you won’t regret!

Until next time,
