A Guide To Caribbean Wedding Destinations

If your dream is a wedding in the sun, it doesn't get better than the Caribbean. Enter Sandals, an adults-only, luxury collection of all-inclusive beach resorts spread across seven islands. Ideal for both weddings and honeymoons, its 16 properties offer everything from ceremonies on private beaches to five-star restaurants. Here’s what Sandals’ romantic Caribbean getaways have to offer – plus, your chance to get a free wedding...

Created in partnership with SANDALS


From waterfalls and palm forests to pristine sandy beaches and striking sunsets, Sandals’ seven island destinations showcase the best of the Caribbean. Guests can choose from St Lucia, Barbados, Grenada, the Bahamas, Jamaica, Antigua and – as of June this year – Curaçao. Whether you’re looking to book a wedding, a honeymoon or both, here’s just some of what Sandals offers brides and grooms.


Couples can pull together their dream day from a huge range of options and venues, with a team of personal wedding planners on hand to help bring your event to life. From seating and cocktails to music and entertainment, each venue has all the foundations in place. The team will also take care of the smaller details, so couples can rest assured everything will be taken of before their arrival on the island. Case in point: a team of document specialists will make sure the legal part of the process is made as simple and stress-free as possible.

Best of all, when couples stay for three nights or more, the wedding itself will be included in the cost of the holiday. And when couples stay for seven nights or more, they’ll get up to $1,500 worth of extra perks, such as a room upgrade, photographer or candlelit dinner. The cost-free wedding elements include an eye-catching ceremony venue (on a beach, in an over-the-water chapel or in a lush garden), bouquet, boutonnière, tableware, wedding cake and a honeymoon breakfast in bed. With the essentials taken care of, any investment couples choose to make will go towards customising the big day with personal touches and fun extras.


Get married life off to the perfect start with a free honeymoon package, which is included for those who get married on the resort or stay within 30 days of their wedding date. A Sandals honeymoon offers couples more ways to spend time together, with unlimited dining at up to 16 restaurants per resort, a large selection of land and water sports to learn, and access to the best suites. Whether high on a cliff top overlooking the sea, at the edge of a pool or right on the beach, these romantic, private hideaways are ready-made for honeymoons.


When it comes to setting the stage for your big day, location is always critical. Sandals provides some of the most beautiful backdrops you're likely to come across. From private white beaches in Jamaica to swim-up suites in Barbados, here are some of SL’s favourite Sandals destinations for weddings and honeymoons…


Sandals Grande St Lucian

Framed to the west by Rodney Bay – which boasts the calmest waters in St Lucia – and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, this magnificent resort showcases panoramic views, volcanic mountains and a sheltered mile-long beach. We love the look of the over-the-water bungalows. Suspended over the Caribbean Sea, the wood-panelled accommodation gives way to a glass floor to make you feel like you’re sleeping on water. But it’s the outdoor space that really impresses – imagine an over-water hammock, outdoor shower and huge tub on a private patio.

WEDDING HIGHLIGHT: An intimate ceremony on the over-the-water wedding chapel.

HONEYMOON HIGHLIGHT: Those memorable views – ideal for photo opportunities.

Sandals Grenada

For a romantic getaway for two, head to the all-inclusive Sandals resort in Grenada. On Pink Gin Beach, this couples’ resort has private plunge pools, cascading waterfalls and 257 beautiful rooms and suites spread over four villages. We suggest booking one of the SkyPool Suites, which have private infinity pools and a butler service. For something more lowkey, opt for one of the Pink Gin Beachfront Rooms which come with a balcony or patio. There are ten restaurants, plus six bars and a range of outdoor swimming pools and whirlpools. Guests can also soak up the Caribbean vibes on the beach, relax at the spa or take advantage of inclusive scuba diving trips. 

WEDDING HIGHLIGHT: A beachfront ceremony at sunset.

HONEYMOON HIGHLIGHT: A dip in one of the SkyPool Suites’ private pools.

Sandals Grande Antigua

Sandals Grande Antigua is on the island’s most famous beach, Dickenson Bay. It’s actually two resorts in one: the Caribbean Beachfront Village, a charming seaside garden filled with palms; and the all-suite Mediterranean Oceanview Village, which mixes European grandeur into the Caribbean hillsides. We love the look of the seaside rondovals at the Beachfront Village. There are 11 restaurants on the resort and scuba diving is a speciality.

WEDDING HIGHLIGHT: A wedding breakfast in the beautifully manicured European Wedding Garden.

HONEYMOON HIGHLIGHT: Experience two great resorts in one.

Sandals Montego Bay

Montego Bay is the original Sandals resort. Embracing the best private white-sand beach in Jamaica, this romantic location offers the perfect backdrop for weddings and honeymoons. The calm, reef-protected beach is ideal for every type of water sport and guests can book into 12 restaurants, each serving authentic regional cuisine. Those looking for an extra-special honeymoon should look at booking one of the private seaside suites, which comes with a butler and is just steps from the sea.

WEDDING HIGHLIGHT: The secluded wedding chapel, surrounded by fountains and greenery.

HONEYMOON HIGHLIGHT: The new beachfront Super-Luxe Butler Suites.

Sandals Royal Barbados

Sandals Royal Barbados is a new all-suite, all-inclusive resort in St Lawrence Gap. The resort features a number of Sandals firsts, including a rooftop pool and bar and a four-lane bowling alley. Some of the best accommodation on the island includes the striking Skypool Suites (which come with an infinity-edge plunge pool that blends into the horizon), Swim-up Suites, and Millionaire Suites, which come with a dedicated butler. Elsewhere, there are nine restaurants and a large spa.

WEDDING HIGHLIGHT: The Sky Terrace, where couples can get married beside a rooftop pool overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

Sandals Royal Bahamian

This resort was once a favourite of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Today it offers two ocean-front colonnaded pools overlooking the sea, ten fine-dining restaurants and an award-winning Red Lane spa. Highlights include the new River Pool Swim-up Suites with butler service, two white-sand beaches and – for an extra special touch – exclusive VIP airport transfers in either a Rolls-Royce or Mercedes-Benz.

WEDDING HIGHLIGHT: Saying ‘I do’ in a gazebo perched over the Caribbean Sea.

Sandals Royal Curaçao

Later this year, Sandals will open on the beautiful Dutch-influenced island of Curaçao. Famous for its vibrant culture, pristine beaches and coves, Curaçao is home to 65 spectacular dive sites and exotic marine ecosystems. Spread around 3,000 acres on Spanish Water Bay, Sandals Royal Curaçao is a romantic getaway with 350 rooms and suites – including Awa Seaside Bungalows with private pools and Kurason Island Suites overlooking a heart-shaped pool – and a two-level infinity pool. There will also be Mini Coopers available for guests to use. While wedding details are still under wraps, anyone looking to book a honeymoon this year should give this new site a look.
