“Which Sandals Resort would be best for my Honeymoon?” This question is always on our top 10 list of frequently asked questions.
Not every honeymoon or every honeymoon couple is alike, so we can’t answer that by simply saying, “Sandals Grande St Lucian”, which is our #1 most popular all inclusive honeymoon resort. The grande is not the best for everyone. This Sandals Resort is active and lively, modern and is located on one of the most alluring islands in the Caribbean, St Lucia. The beach during the day is always humming with water sports activities and the swim up pool bar is always interesting to say the least by mid afternoon.
If you prefer a small intimate classic Caribbean resort that is quieter and you prefer to read or walk on the beach, you would be much happier at Sandals Halcyon in St Lucia. But, maybe you want a resort that has a variety of atmospheres. At Sandals Regency La Toc in St Lucia, you get a high energy almost spring break atmosphere at the main pool, but the property is very spread out and has a quieter pool and a super quiet pool also. The resort also has a great spa area and a golf course on property.
We have only talked about the 3 resorts in St Lucia. We have 12 more. Remember the 3 resorts in St Lucia have full exchange privileges and transfers are included. Stay at one and play at 3. St Lucia honeymoon packages are great for couples looking for a more exotic island.
If you are limited by time and can only go for 3 to five nights, you may not want St Lucia, because the flights are longer and there are less schedules to choose from. The best flight times and prices are usually to Jamaica or the Bahamas.
Now we’ll give you a few categories and maybe one of these will apply to you and help you to narrow your search. Remember all 15 Sandals Resort are couples only all inclusive resorts. This creates a very romantic atmosphere and is one of the biggest reasons why i always recommend Sandals Resorts for your honeymoon.

Best Small and Intimate Sandals Honeymoon Resorts
Sandals Royal Plantation is the ultimate choice for small and luxurious.
Sandals Halcyon is intimate and classic Caribbean.
Sandals Carlyle Inn is almost like a bed and breakfast within walking distance of the hip strip.
These 3 are the most intimate by far, but all the Sandals Resorts have quiet places for couples to enjoy each other.
Best Beach for your Sandals Resort Honeymoon
Sandals Grande Antigua sits on Antigua’s best beach and this island is all about the beaches.
Sandals Emerald Bay in the Bahamas has the sugar white sand to along with Exuma’s crystal clear water.
Sandals Negril on the west coast of Jamaica is located on 7 mile beach and has amazing sunsets.
Sandals Whitehouse has 2 miles of beach is this beach is very private.
Sandals Grande St Lucian sits in a bay on the best beach in St Lucia.
All Sandals honeymoon resorts have nice beaches, but these are the best in my humble opinion.
Best Sandals Resort for Golf
Sandals Grande Riviera is 15 minutes from the golf course, but transfers and greens fees are included.
Sandals Royal Plantation is 16 minutes from the golf course, but transfers are included with your greens fees.
Sandals Emerald Bay has a Greg Norman designed championship course on property.
Sandals Regency La Toc St Lucia has it’s golf course on property, which is just a 9 hole executive course.
Best Priced Sandals Resorts
We try to encourage you to dream about what you want for your honeymoon and think about price last. Budgets are a reality however and we respect that. Again, airfare to Jamaica (MBJ) and to the Bahamas (NAS) is the least expensive. Resorts in Jamaica are also always the least expensive. So, if you go on price alone, Jamaica honeymoons win. We recommend
Sandals Grande Riviera has amazing affordable rooms for such a great resort.
Sandals Montego Bay is a great value for the lively crowd.
Sandals Royal Caribbean is perfect for rest and relaxation.
Don't forget that best price and best value are not the same. Jamaica is not a good value for a couple that books a Sandals honeymoon to Jamaica and then is not excited. Please make sure you choose a destination that excites you. Looking forward to your honeymoon vacation is a big part of the journey:)
We hope this helps you a little. If you just can't pick one, pick two. Island hopping is the latest craze with Sandals honeymoon couples. You can easily hop between the 2 resorts in the Bahamas, which are extremely different. You can also easily hop between St Lucia, Antigua, Barbados and Grenada.
