What makes a Sandals honeymoon so unique?
The 15 Sandals Resorts are located in Jamaica, two different islands of the Bahamas, St. Lucia, Antigua, Grenada and a brand new resort opening in Barbados in January 2015. The Sand Lady loves Sandals for Honeymooners because they are adults-only, couples-only resorts on the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. The Sandals resorts are also all-inclusive resorts. You won’t have to leave for anything! Just sit back and relax with your new hubby on the beach or in the shade.
What all is included in a Sandals honeymoon?
Included in your dream honeymoon are transfers to and from the resort and airport, your beautiful room, unlimited food, unlimited drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic including premium brand liquors, beer, wine and champagne), complimentary wifi, water sports like snorkeling, scuba, water skiing, knee boarding, tubing, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddle-boards (and much more!), daily and nightly entertainment within the resort, all taxes, and you can even include your flights if you would like! So literally, your package includes everything you could possibly need during your stay! No need to worry if you forgot something or left something out of the budget. Just show up on your honeymoon and play as much or as little as you want: it is all paid for.
What is a favorite story from a honeymoon you have helped to plan?
“I recently had a groom who was SO sympathetic to how much time and energy the bride had put into creating their perfect wedding celebration with friends and family. He wanted to surprise his bride with their honeymoon, and he wanted to ensure that they had plenty of romantic time alone to totally relax and reflect together. We booked a super romantic suite in St. Lucia with a private pool and Sandals exclusive Butler Service. The butler service is one of my highest recommendations for honeymooners. It takes any potential stress or planning out of the on-resort experience. He knew that having their own team of butlers would allow her to let go of the “cruise director” (pardon the pun) role and just relax and refocus. He even called me at the last minute to arrange a helicopter transfer from the airport to the resort because he wanted to ensure that she felt like a princess from the moment they arrive on island. I made sure the on-resort staff knew that this couple wanted to focus on relaxation time together. For dinner their first night, their butler set up a candlelight dinner at sunset by their private pool on the bluff. Needless to say, she was wowed and they got the romantic time alone that he wanted!” – Sand Lady Robbie
What is an advantage to working with The Sand Lady over booking and planning your own honeymoon?
The Sand Lady will help select a resort and package that is perfect for your preferences. She will also take care of making the booking for you and handling all of the details. There is never any fee for her services. Your package will be the same price no matter whether you book through her or any other source. Sandals guarantees their prices and they train her and pay her to make their booking and to provide personal service all the way through travel and return. The Sand Lady is highly focused on providing personalized service. They will meet with you in person always and are highly available – nights, weekends, or whenever! They believe couples shouldn’t trust a big investment like a honeymoon (emotional and financial investment) to the internet. If something does happen to go wrong, you may want to have an agent to call rather a customer service number. Additionally, when a couple does have a firm budget, The Sand Lady will advise them on which rooms/resorts are going to maximize that budget, and they make sure that everyone gets the best combination of promotions and discounts available to them. They also advise you on how to save money by flying from different airports or utilizing different days of the week for travel. In short, The Sand Lady will work with you from start to finish to ensure a dream honeymoon for you and your hubby-to-be!
