Five Reasons to put Sandals Royal Caribbean on your travel bucket list

From our largest and most opulent suites, to the very best dining our resorts have to offer, Sandals Royal Caribbean in Jamaica is not one to be missed. Here’s five reasons why you should add this destination to your travel bucket list today!

Luxurious Accommodation

With 232 rooms and suites to choose from, you’re certain to find the accommodation that’s right for you. Whether that’s a regal room with mahogany furnishings, four-poster king-size bed and marble-accented en-suite, or a sleek suite with modern fittings, Tranquility Soaking Tub for two and spa-style bathroom, Sandals Royal Caribbean has something for every taste.

Stay in our newly opened Sandringham building which is situated right on the beach and features two brand new Butler and Club Elite Level room categories. The spacious Beachfront Honeymoon One-Bedroom Walkout Butler Suite with Patio Tranquility Soaking Tub is a true home away from home. It includes separate living and sleeping areas as well as an expansive private patio – perfect for alfresco dining serviced by your very own Butler. With sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea, the Royal Beachfront Club Elite Suite with Balcony Tranquility Soaking Tub offers guests access to the exclusive Club Sandals concierge services and exclusive Private Luxury Car transfers.

For those looking for the ultimate in luxury and opulence, our Over-the-Water Villas and Bungalows are the perfect accommodation to choose. Located on the resort’s private island, these were the first and largest of our overwater accommodations. These are the only villas to offer guests their own, private infinity pool. What better place to enjoy the Caribbean sun than atop the Caribbean Sea? Plus, with your own Butler you’ll find it hard to leave the room!

Private Offshore Island

It’s not just our Over-the-Water Villas and Bungalows you’ll find on Sandals Royal Caribbean’s private island...

Located just two minutes boat ride from the resort, our private offshore island offers you the opportunity to enjoy total seclusion. You can choose to take the Sandals boat which regularly travels between the resort and the island. For the more adventurous, travel on your own sea kayak or sailboat. Getting there is half the fun!

Once on the island, relax on a choice of two white-sand beaches or by the Tahitian-style pool, complete with a swim-up bar which is the perfect spot to meet like-minded castaways. If you’re after something more intimate, our Red Lane® Spa treatments are available to be booked in the privacy of the offshore island meaning you can truly relax to the sounds of the sea as it laps the shore.

If you’re peckish, dine on the fresh grilled specialities at the casual Bamboo Shack or make a dinner reservation at the island’s Royal Thai restaurant and prepare to experience a once-in-a-lifetime taste sensation.

Five Star Gourmet Dining

Ready to tick gourmet food off your travel bucket list? At Sandals Resorts we pride ourselves on offering the very best in gourmet dining, and Sandals Royal Caribbean is no exception! With eight gourmet restaurants showcasing some of the best cuisine from around the globe, you’ll have something new to try for every meal.

Experience the newest additions to our 5-star Global Gourmet dining options at Sandals Royal Caribbean, Spices Caribbean Cuisine and Bombay Club. Open for breakfast, lunch & dinner, Spices serves worldwide flavours during the day and transforms at night to offer dishes infused with popular Caribbean spices like pimento, nutmeg and cinnamon. With a unique collection of aromatic Indian dishes, Bombay Club is the go-to place for scenic views, great times, and exotic fare.

Stay at One, Play at All

Not only will you get to eat at all eight of Sandals Royal Caribbean’s restaurants but, as part of the Sandals Exchange Programme, you can also enjoy the twelve gourmet restaurants at neighbouring Sandals Montego Bay. Why not dine around the resort; starting at Tokyo Jo’s you can enjoy spicy tuna roll and shrimp gyoza before heading on for a Chef’s Surf and Turf at Butch’s Steak & Seafood restaurant. If you still have room, take a stroll over to Café de Paris and choose from their selection of cakes, crepes and more.

With complimentary round-trip transfers between resorts, you can spend as much or as little time at each resort as you like. Spend the day chilling by the pool at Sandals Montego Bay before heading back to Sandals Royal Caribbean for dinner. Prefer the spa at Sandals Montego Bay? No problem! You can book any treatment at either location without any additional costs.

With all land and water sports included in your stay, you can take advantage of the plethora of activities available at both resorts, including kayaking, waterskiing and tennis. You can also extend your diving experiences to exotic underwater playgrounds at multiple dive sites thanks to the Exchange Programme.

Discover Jamaica

As if the unlimited activities, dining options and resort-based fun wasn’t enough, Sandals Royal Caribbean is also the perfect base from which to explore the island of Jamaica. Known for its stunning natural beauty and the hospitable warmth of its people, Jamaica is an island like no other. Filled with rolling mountains covered by lush foliage and lines by endless white-sand beaches, there’s plenty of adventure to be had beyond the resort!

We’ve partnered with the world’s leading Caribbean attractions company, Island Routes, to offer you the very best tours and excursions Jamaica has to offer. Whether you’d like to explore the island by land, sea or air, you’ll be able to find the activity which is right for you. Afterall, why add somewhere to your travel bucket list if it doesn't include any adventure?

Set sail and take in the views of Montego Bay’s coastline on a Reggae Catamaran Cruise where you’ll have the opportunity to snorkel a reef filled with exotic marine life before stopping off at the world famous Margaritaville. If you prefer to stay on dry land, opt for a Dune Buggy Safari and explore the mountains of Jamaica. Or why not take a journey to Nine Mile, the birthplace of Reggae legend, Bob Marley and discover more about the life and legacy of one of Jamaica’s greatest heroes.
