Sandals Jamaica South Coast, Royal Caribbean and Montego Bay
We’re celebrating the launch of Aisle to Isle by Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts, the go-to luxury getaway providers for Honeymoons, holidays and destination weddings in the Caribbean. With such a big rise in Couples opting for destination weddings and elopements, we were keen to bring you a feature series which looks at Aisle to Isle, the wedding experience and ideas for your own destination wedding, as well as exploring some of the most beautiful luxury resorts, and things to do in Jamaica!
Today we’re exploring three luxury Sandals resorts in Jamaica, Sandals Montego Bay, Sandals South Coast and Sandals Royal Caribbean. Fine Art Photographer, Sarah Hannam, was there to capture the essence and atmosphere of the island and these lavish hotels – we could certainly get lost in her pictures of over water suites, delicious food, chic interiors and of course – the incredible beaches! First let’s explore Sandals South Coast!
SANDALS SOUTH COAST
We couldn’t wait to see their beautiful new over the water bungalows, perfect for honeymoons and such a blissful way to enjoy the scenery of the white sandy shores and turquoise waters. If you’re thinking about planning a destination wedding you’ll love that they have a new over the water chapel and one of their stylish bars sits over the lapping shore – so there’s plenty of ways to to feature this in your wedding day. Sarah tells us about the South Coast Resort and we absolutely wish we were there!
“Sandals South Coast felt like a small town with shops, restaurants of all kinds and a beautiful long beach full of water sports, hammocks and great cabins to relax in. We had a packed schedule of presentations from the Sandals weddings team with beach and garden ceremonies, amazing outdoor banquets and being treated as though we were the guests at a wedding – my favourite evening was the formal dinner we had by the water’s edge – every Wednesday evening should be like this! I spent a few hours at one of the new luxury sea bungalows, each with their own terrace facing out to sea and cleverly positioned so no terrace is overlooked by other bungalows. A swim in the sea followed by a little champagne and antipasti on the sun deck made for a perfect afternoon.”
SANDALS MONTEGO BAY
Set on Jamaica’s North Coasts largest private white sandy beach, the Montego Bay Resort is magnificent hotel and really close to lots of fantastic things to see and do on the island! I just love the far stretching sand and crystal clear waters here, but also the glamorous pool scene! The resort has beautiful newly renovated suites and brand new villas with outdoor tranquility soaking tubs. Paradise! Sarah tells us more about her visit; “The Sandals Montego Bay resort is smaller and has a very Ibiza cool kind of style. The resort has beautifully manicured gardens and even its own chapel, making it perfect for brides wanting a destination wedding where everything can be managed in house with the Sandals team, who are so passionate about giving couples a really individual non-cookie cutter wedding.”
SANDALS ROYAL CARIBBEAN
Now you just know it’s going to be amazing when they have Jamaica’s only private offshore island and Sandals Royal Caribbean has so many swoon-worthy points! With beautiful swim-up crystal lagoon suites with their blissful tranquility outdoor soaking tubs for two, and even exclusive over the water butler bungalows at the private island! You just can’t go wrong! You can relax, drink in the views and enjoy an enormous option of 20 restaurants for dinner. There are so many dreamy, romantic moments to be had at the Royal Caribbean.
