The Sand Lady from Royal Travel

The Sand Lady is a Preferred Sandals agency. In our 20+ years experience with planning honeymoons and destination weddings, we have developed a process for helping you select the perfect Caribbean resort for your vacation. We make it our job to understand your expectations and ensure that your trip exceeds them… all within your budget and at no additional cost to you.

1. What about your company or services makes you stand apart?

Expertise and Personal Service. We have more than 20 years experience planning honeymoons and destination weddings. We only sell resorts and travel products that we have personally visited, and we visit them often. We have developed a process for helping an engaged couple define their dream honeymoon. Then, we recommend a resort that will exceed their expectations and stay within their budget. We work with a lot of couples who have not traveled much – or at all. We take them step-by-step through planning the trip, and we handle all of the details for them. We help them secure a passport if needed, and we prepare them for each step of the travel process. We have successfully delivered our services when a couple returns from their honeymoon and tells all of their friends and family what an amazing experience it was and how simple we made it for them.

2. Describe the kind of couple who would have the most success working with you.

Any couple who wants to plan a very special honeymoon and wants and expert to assist them. Most brides wouldn’t order the wedding gown without first seeing it in person. And even if your DJ says he can decorate a cake, you probably won’t hire him to do that. Don’t trust your honeymoon to a cheap Internet site or someone who is not a travel professional. It is an important investment! Let me be your personal honeymoon designer.

When Zac and I got engaged, we felt very overwhelmed with all of the many choices, vendors, and decisions to make regarding our big day. We decided to do a destination wedding, and that was even more nerve racking in a way because planning a wedding in another country for a large group sounded terrifying. We were very fortunate to have found Robbie. We ended up choosing Sandals Ochi for our wedding and honeymoon. Over the course of 6 months, Robbie must have talked with 50 different family members and friends who were interested in making the trip. On top of that, she took care of the entire wedding, she prioritized what I needed to get done, and made all of this look effortless. I would highly recommend Robbie to anyone who is interested in a destination wedding or who is needing to plan a honeymoon. I promise you won’t be disappointed. We will be using Robbie again for our anniversary stays.

We worked with Robbie to set up our dream honeymoon for our wedding in 2017. We first met with Robbie at the Pink Bride convention in Knoxville and then went to a presentation at a local restaurant where we were completely sold on the Sandals experience. Robbie accommodated us by staying after hours to meet with us and help plan our Honeymoon to Jamaica. Throughout the experience Robbie was knowledgeable, friendly, and great to work with. She made the entire process easy for us, and we are so excited for our first Sandals experience. I absolutely recommend Robbie for your Sandals booking, and if we like our trip as much as I think we will, Robbie will definitely be someone I work with in the future.

My husband and I just got back from Sandals Antigua and had the absolute best honeymoon! It was such a beautiful place. I met RuthAnn aka The Sand Lady at a bridal show last year and she was such a big help in selecting our Sandals resort, room and amenities. She was always quick to respond to all of our questions. We met with her a few times to discuss options, pick up travel vouchers, etc… I would recommend RuthAnn to any bride getting married and looking for a great honeymoon. All of her suggestions were spot on and I really do believe we had the best room in the whole resort!!! We will definitely be returning to Sandals and hope to work with RuthAnn many more times in our future!

Robbie was a dream come true from the beginning of our planing, all the way through our flight home from our amazing honeymoon! Choosing a destination and a room was extremely overwhelming at first because of the many options, but Robbie made it simple for us by matching our interests and our budget to the perfect resort. She has visited every Sandals property personally, so she knew exactly what to recommend for us! I was especially impressed when she sent our flight and check in information to us so that we had everything that we needed in one spot, ready to go. The entire travel process was organized and stress free. Not to mention the exquisite treatment that we received during our stay in beautiful Montego Bay. I highly recommend Robbie and a Sandals honeymoon destination!

We absolutely had the time of our lives on our honeymoon at the Grande Riviera resort in Jamaica in August. We relaxed in the beautiful, mahogany furnished Butlers Lounge complete with food and drinks upon arrival to the resort. We were treated like royalty from the moment we first arrived, when we first met our butler he said “this week, you are my king and my queen”. The food was delicious- we were there for over a week and did not even get to eat at every restaurant available because there is so many options. The water activities, swim up bars, and activities throughout the day gave us plenty of stuff to do. Our butlers were great and gave us top notch service, going as far as showing up to bring us our favorite drinks by the pool and snacks to our room. It was the most fun and relaxing week, which was much needed after being busy planning our wedding. The weather was perfect and it was not crowded in the least. We are so excited to hopefully be coming back in the near future. Robbie Phillips was incredible at arranging our entire trip. Our flight, reservations, and transfers were all set up, scheduled, and mailed to us. I was defiantly recommend her to anyone who is interested in going to Sandals; I provided her contact info below. It was a totally worry-free honeymoon and we are ready to return!

We went and met Ruth Ann for a dinner and presentation. It was well presented and they answered all the questions we asked. After putting the deposit down, we would put payments periodically through Ruth Ann and she was always there and asnswered all questions within a few hours. She was a pleasure to work with and I would do it again! Thanks a lot, the honeymoon was beyond perfect!
