Take it easy on holiday this year at luxury all-inclusive resort from Sandals Resorts, and take the stress out of planning and budgeting
With its abundant natural beauty and laid-back way of life, it’s no wonder that Jamaica provides the perfect tropical haven for holidaymakers looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and switch to island time for some much-needed respite. 
When it comes to where to stay to enjoy the most relaxed of holidays, there is arguably no better option than a luxury all-inclusive resort. These types of holidays afford you every luxury you could wish for, while taking all the stress out of planning and budgeting, with all meals, drinks and activities coming as part of the package. When looking for a luxury all-inclusive resort in Jamaica, look no further than Sandals Resorts, the Jamaican family-owned company that has been calling the island home for more than 40 years. With seven resorts in Jamaica to choose from, here’s a selection of the top picks you should consider for your next trip.
One of the most exciting resort openings in Jamaica this year is the all-new Sandals Dunn’s River. This luxury all-inclusive resort opened its doors on 24 May and welcomed guests to enjoy a resort inspired by the natural beauty of the falls it is named after. Owned previously by Sandals Resorts before its closure in 2010, the newly reopened resort has been completely reimagined, with a whole host of unique Sandals’ firsts that are sure to impress. 
Among the new features are some seriously luxurious suites, including the Coyaba Sky Villa Swim-Up Rondoval Butler Suites with Private Pool Sanctuary that boast roof terraces complete with a bathtub, as well as a private pool on the other terrace located below. In addition to the incredible accommodation, guests will be able to enjoy new restaurant and bar concepts, with 12 restaurants serving up Caribbean, French, Japanese and many other cuisines, as well as Sandals’ first ever rum bar. As well as being able to enjoy all the amenities of this resort, guests will also benefit from exchange privileges and complimentary transfers to nearby Sandals Ochi, allowing the use of all the facilities there too, and granting access to a total of 28 restaurants, 20 bars and 13 pools.
Beach lovers should make Sandals Negril their resort of choice. Located on Negril’s famous Seven Mile Beach, the pristine white sand stretches on as far as the eye can see, fringed by swaying palm trees and gently lapping waves. If you want to see some spectacular sunsets, simply take a stroll down the sands on any given evening of your stay and witness the amazing colours that streak the sky. Eager to dive into the calm, warm waters? Try your hand at one of the many water sports that come included in a stay at Sandals, such as snorkelling, kayaking and even scuba diving for certified divers.
Beyond the beach, this resort has so much more to offer. Laid-back luxury is the name of the game here, evident in the beachfront swim-up suites that put both the pool and the sea right on your doorstep, and the generous pours of premium spirits whenever you order a cocktail at any of the bars, a favourite of many being the swim-up bar. When you’ve worked up an appetite, you’ll find seven fine-dining options available to satiate you, all included of course.
Those looking for a mix of unrivalled luxury and the desert island experience should look no further than Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay. This resort is home to the iconic Over-the-Water Villas and Bungalows on the resort’s own private island, which is reached in a few minutes from the main resort by boat, ensuring complete peace and seclusion. The Over-the-Water Bungalows boast ultra-luxurious amenities, including overwater hammocks, steps down into the Caribbean Sea, spa-style bathrooms, the service of a personal butler and so much more, while guests opting for a stay in the Villas will enjoy all those features, plus a private pool. 
Even if not opting for a stay in the Over-the-Water suites, there is so much more to enjoy at this resort. Guests can enjoy unlimited fine dining at nine restaurants, including a Thai restaurant located on a private island, as well as unlimited premium drinks at six bars, not to mention inclusive land and water sports. Guests staying here also enjoy exchange privileges with Sandals Montego Bay, granting access to even more amenities.
