Sandals® Resorts says its newest all-inclusive resort, Sandals Saint Vincent and The Grenadines, will mark the ninth Caribbean destination and 18th Sandals resort for Sandals Resorts International (SRI) when it welcomes its first guests on March 27, 2024. 

Now open for reservations, Sandals reports that the more than 50-acre resort unlocks an entirely new island experience that invites guests to experience two-story overwater villas, meandering rivers, and other “Sandals Firsts.”

“This resort is a dream more than two decades in the making – from the moment we laid eyes on Vincy, as the locals lovingly call her, we felt this sense of magic and wonder and awe so palpable you could almost touch it,” said Adam Stewart, executive chairman of Sandals Resorts International.

Gary C. Sadler, executive vice president of sales and industry relations for Unique Vacations, Inc. further adds: 

In Saint Vincent and The Grenadines, travel advisors will find a true partner, as her beauty goes far beyond a stunning landscape. Here, visitors will be enveloped by a local culture that radiates warmth and exudes an inspiring joy of life. We are confident that Sandals Saint Vincent and The Grenadines will captivate guests and look forward to working with travel advisors to showcase this untouched destination.”

'Next level" accommodations

Sandals Saint Vincent and The Grenadines will offer 301 rooms and the portfolio’s most expansive suites to date, with Two-Bedroom Butler Villas spanning across the waterfront – a “Sandals First.” 

Interiors throughout feature special biophilic elements and local volcanic materials, and natural views intentionally framing the flora.

Dining: All that's fresh

As part of the new resort's dining offering, Sandals shares that local agriculture will be highlighted across 16 food and beverage concepts. 

As the brand’s first communal-style restaurant, Buccan’s menu of seasonal platters meant for sharing will be complemented by an action-packed open kitchen. 

Imoro, an all-new grab-and-go concept named for the local indigenous word for ‘green,’ will serve healthy bowls. 

Three Jewels, a rum bar (and ode to the flag of Saint Vincent and The Grenadines) will serve Eastern Caribbean rums as well as new creations ranging from zero-proof to spirit-forward. 

Parisol, an open-air beach club and kitchen, will serve small plates near the water before transforming into a high-end evening destination for cocktails and music.

A focal point from the open-air lobby is a 300-foot linear pool surrounded by posh cabanas and swim-up bar access. 

An adjacent crescent-shaped pool invites guests to lounge and swim, while Parisol’s double-crescent infinity-edge pool overlooks the bay.

Built along the riverside, Sandal says the sound of flowing water will surround Red Lane Spa cabanas to connect guests with the outdoors. 

Beyond the sand,  Sandals shares that the destination’s prime location on the Atlantic shelf makes it one of the Caribbean’s most abundant with local fish, with the all-inclusive resort as a gateway to incredible snorkeling and scuba diving and other exploration opportunities.
