Offshore Escapes Give A Unique View of the Caribbean


Taking an ordinary Caribbean vacation with your loved one seems limiting when you find out the two of you can escape to a private island.

Although other resorts may claim to have the best private island retreats in the Caribbean, they cannot touch the experience that comes from the Sandals private island in Jamaica.

If you’ve ever stayed at a Sandals all-inclusive resort, you know about the top-tier accommodations, service, and amenities. The bottom line is that when it comes to private island getaways, Sandals all-inclusive resort just offers more than others can give.

The Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort and Private Island provides an experience like none other. From the minute that you arrive, the Georgian-style resort with a unique blend of the Far East and British colonial touches lets you know you’re in for luxury. Nestled in a secluded cove and teeming with gold-colored sand, this property is beyond stunning from an aesthetics standpoint.

Only after checking in will you realize just how exquisite this resort actually is. Along with seven main swimming pools, this private island escape offers tastefully designed and decorated rooms, all with peace and relaxation at the forefront.

Included are spa-style bathrooms, elegant bed linens, top-of-the-line technology, and the best customer service imaginable. During your stay, you and your guest can spend as much or as little time as you want enjoying watersports, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and more outdoor fun.

All of these incredible amenities guarantee the perfect offshore escape, but there is something else worth noting.

As an exclusive private island, you never have to worry about crowds. While you can certainly spend time visiting with other guests while walking around the island or at the swim-up bar, the vast size of the property coupled with how the accommodations are laid out allow you to remain as isolated as you want. You can feel like you're completely alone on your own island or you can socialize. It really just depends on your preference.

After a busy day in the sun, enjoying watersports or exploring, you can enjoy a delicious meal prepared at one of the on-site restaurants, or you can go back on land to dine at one of the additional 20 restaurants associated with other nearby Sandals properties. You have this same opportunity for cocktails by choosing an on-site bar or one of five located off-site.

The Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort and Private Island is an “adults-only” private island dedicated to providing guests with the experience of a lifetime. Regardless if you stay in one of the traditional rooms or suites or choose a newer over-the-water villa, you will find it difficult to leave once your time is up.

If you plan to visit the Caribbean as a newly married couple, to celebrate an anniversary, or perhaps you and your loved one are rekindling a romance, this is the perfect destination. It's the perfect mix of luxury, adventure, and relaxation for anyone looking to unwind from the hustle of life outside the Caribbean.

This island is both exclusive and private, and throughout your stay, you will appreciate the attentive staff and the host of exceptional amenities, including a swim-up pool from your private terrace, butler service, a private “Tranquility Soaking Tub” on your balcony or terrace, and more.
