Three Hot Luxury All-Inclusives
Here’s a trio of luxury all-inclusives for every market, from the nightlife-loving Millennial to the spa-loving Baby Boomer.
Sandals Royal Caribbean
Sandals’ first-ever over-the-water suites are set to open this month at Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Perhaps the two best features of the five “Over the Water Private Island Butler Villa with Infinity Pool” rooms are the floating water hammocks and glass floors.
Each bungalow villa has a smart TV, a large ceiling fan and bathrooms with his-and-hers sinks and a walk-in rain shower.
Private patios have extended sun decks, two outdoor showers, sun loungers and a bistro table set for two. Couples also have access to a private butler, water taxi service to take them to and from the resort and 24-hour room service.
Note: The positive booking response to the first wave of bungalow villas in Sandals has prompted the company to build 12 more over-the-water bungalows.
We hear the new “Over-the-Water Private Island Butler Honeymoon Bungalow” room category is available now for arrivals beginning February 1, 2017.
These additional over-the- water bungalows will also have glass vision floor panels and lit water so guests can enjoy underwater views at any time.
Hint: These rooms are almost identical to the “Over the Water Private Island Buder Villa with Infinity Pool” rooms except they are a bit smaller and do not have infinity pools. Instead, these bungalows include a private outdoor soaking tub.
Tip: Guests can also arrange for in-room dining in the bungalows and villas.
Luxury travel advisors with special room requests can reach out to Kitanya Mirander, sales manager.
Bungalow villa guests can opt to have treatments in their room or on the sun deck, or they can take a water taxi back to the hotels indoor spa, which houses five treatment rooms and two cabanas each on the mainland of the resort and the hotels private island.
Hint: Luxury Travel Advisor was told the best treatment here is the “Scents of Love Couples Massage.” During this treatment, the therapist will guide couples through a romantic candle-lighting and warm oil-massage ritual based on their chosen sensory experience. Note: Couples can choose from different indigenous aromas of the Caribbean.
To customize the best spa treatment for guests, advisors should get in touch with Dorothea Gordon, spa manager.
Travelers heading to Sandals Royal Caribbean can book a flight to Sangster International Airport, which is five minutes away. This is also where A-listers will find the nearest helipad. Luxury private transfers to Sandals Royal Caribbean can be arranged.
For private pickups and all other inquiries, advisors should connect with Dezreen Reid-Stewart, the hotels head concierge.
