What can be more perfect for your socially distanced vacation than a beach location? The fresh air, cool ocean breeze, and beautiful turquoise water found in the Caribbean make for a perfect location for your escape. Throw in weather that is perfect practically 100% of the time for outdoor dining and perfect rooms for your socially distanced vacation!
Sandals Resorts are adult-only, couples-only luxury all-inclusive resorts. Because these resorts were made specifically for couples in love, they perfected the socially distanced vacation concept long before there was a need for it. Each of their resorts are large and offer many private areas on resort, perfect for a socially distanced vacation or honeymoon.
Sandals Resorts have made cleanliness and safety their #1 priority. Their Platinum Protocol of Cleanliness include several preemptive cleanliness measures to better guarantee guests the peace of mind to be confident in their vacation experience.
There are 15 Sandals Resorts in all located on 5 Caribbean islands. These resorts include countless different room categories which are all unique. Many of the rooms also cater to a socially distanced vacation. Here are my top 4 rooms perfect for your socially distanced vacation!
#1: Over-the-Water Villas and Over-the-Water Bungalows
Found at: Sandals Royal Caribbean, Sandals South Coast, and Sandals Grande St. Lucian
Over-the-Water Bungalows and Villas offer the ultimate socially distanced vacation experience. For starters, there are only a very limited number of these spaced apart over the water. Your very own personal butler is there to handle every detail of your vacation. With beautiful water views, the ocean at your feet, and your very own plunge pool (Villas Only), you will not want to leave your room!
Found at: Sandals Grande Antigua, Sandals Grenada, Sandals Grande St. Lucian, and Sandals South Coast
Rondovals are one of the most unique room categories found at Sandals Resorts. These cottage-in-the-round are each their own separate buildings. Each of them features a private plunge pool which is the perfect place to cool off during your socially distanced vacation!
#3 Rooms with Private (Plunge) Pools
Found at: Sandals Negril, Sandals Ochi, Sandals Regency La Toc, Sandals Halcyon Beach, Sandals Grenada, and Sandals Grande Antigua
The pools at Sandals Resorts are large and perfect for a socially distanced dip. If you would prefer to err on the side of caution though, consider a room with either a private pool or a private plunge pool.
#4 Private Villa
If you would like your very own villa, check out the three-bedroom Villa Plantana located on the quiet East Beach at Sandals Royal Plantation! Not only do guests here have gourmet restaurants mere steps away, the villa includes a butler, full villa staff, and 24-hour room service! Guests staying here have the ability to use their very own private pool for the ultimate socially distanced vacation.
Honorable Mention: Villa Residence with Private Pool at Beaches Turks & Caicos
While not technically located at a Sandals Resort, I had to mention the Key West Beachfront Four Bedroom Butler Villa Residence with Private Pool. These are literally villas situated directly on the beach at Beaches Turks and Caicos. This is a family friendly resort, and, at 75 acres, the largest of the 3 Beaches Resorts. This resort is comprised of 5 different villages. The Key West Village features 3 & 4 bedroom villas and feels like a home away from home.
