Sandals Antigua Grande Resort & Spa - Adult-Only Luxury All-Inclusive

Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa has been voted “The World’s Most Romantic Resort” many times, but with the addition of the Mediterranean Village on one of Antigua’s most beautiful beaches, Sandals Grand Antigua is a treasure of Caribbean All-Inclusive luxury, complete with Butler service is you so desire.

 

Lobby View of Sandals Grand Antigua

 

ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION was there when Sandals opened the doors on the new Mediterranean Village and the incredibly romantic Beachfront Rondovals and we continue to experience the evolution with every return. The resort is conveniently only 15-minutes from the airport and your stay includes transfers. And there is a casino right next door.

 

Antigua may boast having a beach for every day of the year (365 in total), but Sandals Grande Antigua boasts having the longest and arguably most beautiful beach of all, on Dickenson Bay,

including a mile-long reef and constant cooling trade winds. The resort is basically two distinctly different sections, The Caribbean Grove is the original and set in lush tranquil gardens highlighted by bougainvillea; the new Mediterranean Village, is the home of luxurious suites all with ocean views.

 

Mediterranean Village @ Sandals Grande AntiguaThe original Caribbean Grove winds on paths beneath towering coconut groves through gardens of tropical flowers. Along the way quaint colorful cottages and the original Rondovals (suites in the round featuring 20' conical ceilings) make up the accommodations that encircle an exclusive Red Lane® Spa. The new European inspired Mediterranean Village is magnificent. Every luxury suite overlooks the largest zero-entry pool in the Eastern Caribbean, the white sand beach and faces the Caribbean Sea. The buildings are beautiful and the accommodations must be seen to be believed. Be sure to check out our exclusive pictures. And of course, the brand new Luxury Ocean Villa Suites complete with personal butler service, a long list of romantic amenities and private pool are the highlight of the resort.


Sandals Resorts have always showered guests with an abundance of unique and diverse gourmet restaurants. Sandals Grande Antigua now has 11 amazing restaurants with varied cuisine and 7 bars, including an authentic English Pub, to wet your taste buds with the latest Caribbean concoctions. There are also Theme Nights, Late Night Buffets, Nightly Shows, Cocktail Parties, six pools, and plenty of both Land and Water Sports. And let us not forget the Red Land Spa.

 

 

Jay French @ Sandals Grande AntiguaULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION recommends Sandals Grand Antigua Resort & Spa for many reasons including the fact that Antigua is home to some of the Caribbean’s most beautiful beaches, including Dickenson Bay, which it sits on. There are a tremendous variety of room and suite categories to fit several different budgets and requirements from Deluxe Garden Rooms in the Caribbean Grove to the luxurious new suites in the Mediterranean Village all the way to the romantic Butler served Beachfront Rondovals.
