Love is in the air (and water) at Sandals South Coast. Their new tagline is "Sandals Sexy South Coast". It is the perfect romantic getaway for honeymooners, destination weddings, vow renewals, anniversaries or for any couple who just wants an escape together.
I recently spent four nights at this lover's paradise on a FAM trip (as a guest of Sandals). Here are 5 reasons why I think Sandals South Coast won't disappoint you.
Sandals South Coast is located on the southern coast of Jamaica and used to be known as Sandals Whitehouse. This 5-star, all-inclusive, adults only resort is nestled in a 500-acre nature preserve on a gorgeous 2 mile stretch of white sand beach. Could you ask for anything more? Well, actually, yes you can. All the rooms are beachfront!
Sandals resorts are synonymous with outstanding service and luxury included. They were recently voted one of the top 10 all-inclusive resort brands by Brides magazine, plus Sandals South Coast won the 2017 World Travel award for the Caribbean's leading honeymoon resort. Impressive, but take it from someone who just returned from there(🙋), this is why I think it is the perfect romantic getaway.
1. Beautiful Beach
Most of the people who know me, know that I can't resist a beautiful beach. I absolutely loved walking this gorgeous, uninterrupted 2-mile stretch of beach. There is such a calming serenity and peace.
Did I mention you can view both the sunrise and sunset at Sandals South Coast?
I witnessed couples sharing romantic sunset dinners and perfectly orchestrated photoshoots. Day or night this beautiful beach enhances romance!
2. Incredible Inclusions
Sandals takes all-inclusive to a whole new level. They offer the most romantic getaways with more quality inclusions than any other luxury beach resort. Tipping is even included (with the exception of butlers and spa employees).
You won't be lacking for land or water activities to share with your partner.
Water Sports include:
- Glass Bottom Boat
- Pool Volleyball
- Paddle Boarding
In addition to the water sports there are 4 pools, 4 whirlpools and 2 swim up bars. You will be able to choose the one that fits your need for play or relaxation. The main pool is the largest in Jamaica.
So maybe, heaven forbid, you're not a water lover or you love the water, but need a break. There are a variety of fun land activities to enjoy, including:
- Pool Tables
- Table Tennis
- Board Games
- Day & Night Tennis
- Lawn Chess
- Bocce Ball
- Beach Volleyball
- Fitness Center
The nightlife at Sandals South Coast is top-notch. Every evening is something new and different. They have theme nights, individual musical instrument performances, a Piano Bar and a multi-level amphitheater. My favorites were the saxophonist, the steel drum band and the chocolate bar! YUM!
3. Creative Cuisine
Where are my foodies? Sandals South Coast has 9 extraordinary gourmet global dining options. The chefs use fresh ingredients and the presentation is superb. They are very food allergy conscious too. There were so many dining choices I didn't even get to sample them all.
The ones I did try were exceptionally delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed my shrimp dinner at Bayside, my cheese gnocchi at Guiseppe's paired with a Mondavi merlot, my sushi at Sushi on the Sand (by the way I am not a sushi lover, but I was impressed) and my omelette breakfast at Eleanor's.
My favorite spot was Cafe de Paris where they serve the best made-to-order crepes. I also happen to be a coffee snob and the famous Blue Mountain coffee they serve is top notch.
4. Overwater Options
Sandals South Coast has three of the most innovative new overwater amenities out there, all created with romance and love in mind.
First, is their new Over-the-Water Wedding Chapel. This unique and picturesque venue features stunning 360-degree, panoramic water views and a glass floor aisle, so you can truly be walking on water on your special day.
Next up is Sandals first ever over-the-water bar, Latitudes. This place is the bomb! Not only does it offer premium spirits, it has fun overwater hammocks and there is no better place to cuddle up with your honey and watch the sunset. Kudos to Sandals for dreaming up this gem!
Last, but not least, Sandals will be opening over-the-water butler bungalows in December 2017. There were still under construction while I was there, but if they are anything like the others they have recently opened they are going to be the ultimate love nest suites.
5. Rest, Relax, Reconnect
Sandals is a tropical paradise where you and your love can escape everyday stress and reignite your passion and love. There are a multitude of places to rest, relax and reconnect with each other. From intimate spa treatments, to cozy firepits andcabanas by the pool or beach, take the time to catch your breath, get pampered and fall in love all over again! 💕
