Summer Sanctuary and Winter Warm-Ups

2703Summer is mainly a time for relaxation and rejuvenation after a long and bitter winter. Wouldn’t you like your own private island, somewhere to retreat, a sanctuary far away from the reminders of ten-foot snow drifts? Sandals gets you. The Sandals Royal Caribbean Spa Resort and Private Island offers a blissful getaway in Montego Bay with a private, off-shore abode, perfect for ultimate indulgence. The resort immerses guests in the splendor of the British Empire with lush gardens, roaming peacocks, afternoon tea, and an entertaining game of croquet along with the lure of Bali with pool and beach activities on the private island.

2684Enjoy a culinary adventure with flavors from around the world, fitting everyone’s taste and preference. Your palate will enjoy the scrumptious options from France and Italy to the Caribbean and Thailand. This Sandals also has an authentic English pub on site, which would be perfect for World Cup watching! Five bars with unlimited drinks, including Beringer Wines and Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum, help ease you into utter relaxation, and if you’re searching for romance, then a candlelight dinner is the perfect setting, whether it’s on the beach, garden, or your suite’s terrace. But wait. There’s more! With Sandals’ Dine Around program, you have the choice of 19 restaurants at Sandals Royal Caribbean, Sandals Montego Bay, and Sandals Carlyle.

Relaxation comes in many forms. Become one with the water with activities such as canoeing and kayaking, sailing, riding aquatrikes, tubing, paddle boarding, snorkeling, scuba diving, and more. You’ll find fun in six soothing pools and five whirlpools, including two swim-up pool bars. To keep on your workout routine, there’s a state-of-the-art fitness center, complete with aqua-fit courses, workout machines, and Cybex equipment. For evening entertainment, you won’t want to miss the amphitheater, piano bar, chocolate buffet (hmm…), Jamaica Jamboree, and more!

Of course, when winter returns, you’ll want to escape the Polar Vortex. (We’ll never forget that term, will we?) If you haven’t heard, Sandals Barbados will reopen in only 215 days on January 28, 2015.
