Sandals Grande St. Lucian - Adult-Only Luxury All-Inclusive

Sandals Grande St. Lucian Spa & Beach Resort is easily one of the Caribbean’s most visually beautiful resorts, sitting on its own penincula.  Jay of ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION enjoyed the privilege of invitation to the official Sandals unveiling of Sandals Grande St. Lucian upon completion of the newest sections, inauguration of the new Rondovals, and renovation of the original sections. We say, "Sandals Grande St. Lucian is the closest resort to a picture perfect postcard." Just look at our photos!

 

Lobby View of Sandals Grande St Lucian

 

This resort has received the rare Five Star Diamond Resort by the American Academy of Hospitality Services, and the Green Globe 21, a benchmark and certification program that facilitates sustainable travel and tourism. The list goes on but clearly there are profound reasons why Sandals Grande St. Lucian is so impressive.

 

 

Most importantly, ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION clients provide us with the most positive feedback for Sandals Grande St. Lucian of the three St. Lucia Sandals Resorts. We always solicit this feedback from our returning clients and value their opinions.

Sandals Grande St. Lucian is set on its very own stunning peninsula, surrounded by the Caribbean Sea on one side and beautiful Rodney Bay on the other making it home to the island's calmest waters. The picture-perfect view on the bay side can be described as nothing less than panoramic, faces the gorgeous bay and nearby mountains rising picturesquely out of the Caribbean that feature historic Ft. Rodney atop. The other side offers a panorama of the beautiful Caribbean and the isle of Martinique in the distance. The views are truly worth the price alone, but there is more – so much more.

Mediterranean Village and pool area @ Sandals Grande St Lucian
Most of the 301 rooms face the beach and ocean, a unique characteristic for Sandals resorts. The accommodations run the gambit from the Grande Deluxe Rooms, to Swim Up Rooms, to suites with a private bedroom, to the amazing and romantic beachfront Rondoval Suites, all the way to the famous William Jefferson Clinton Suite, where the former President stayed.

You get the sense that you are living ‘larger than life’ at Sandals Grande St. Lucian from the moment you arrive in the grand three-story lobby where the breezes and panoramic vista of the bay and mountains overwhelm you. Water surrounds you at every turn between the Bay and Caribbean Sea, plus five magnificent pools. There’s an oceanfront lagoon-style pool with secluded corners for intimacy, a smaller heart-shaped pool directly on the beach, one exclusively reserved for scuba certification, and even swim-up lagoon pools where you can swim right up to your suite. And most impressive of all is the main pool with a lively swim-up bar and a soaring tower where you can actually sit inside to enjoy drinks while watching yachts move in and out of the bay, and a romantic sunset each night.

 

 

And yes, everything you have come to expect at a Sandals resort is certainly available at Sandals Grande St. Lucian. Start with an elaborate Red Lane Spa; incredible retail shops (even if your not a shopper); Fitness Center; Tennis pavilion; 8 specialty restaurants including an authentic British Pub and Gordon’s (reserved for Butler level guests); plus the “Stay at One, Play at Three” Program with full exchange privileges at 2 other neighboring Sandals Resorts including complimentary golf and Dine Around program for a choice of 13 additional restaurants. There are even extensive meeting facilities for conferences, conventions and incentive programs.
