Posted By : travelisswell/ 39 0

Just because you’re in the Caribbean doesn’t mean you can’t dine around the world.

Sandals Resorts is always innovating the all-inclusive experience, and they know how important food is to their guests.

You can find all you can eat style food seemingly everywhere in the Caribbean, but the 5-Star Global Gourmet dining program from Sandals is on a completely different level.

It is, after all, the number one all-inclusive dining experience.

With up to 16 inimitable restaurants per resort and as many as 21 unique culinary concepts, travelers can truly treat their taste buds to an unforgettable experience.

Enjoy a level of quality, variety and creativity that is unrivaled anywhere in the Caribbean. Plus, you can dine anytime and anywhere you want at the resort. The perks of feasting at an all-inclusive resort sure are good.

Sip on drinks with premium-brand spirits and exclusive Robert Mondavi Wines at no extra cost as well. Sandals has as many as 11 bars per resort, so you’ll never go thirsty!

Enjoy barefoot dining on the beach, on an offshore island or in an overwater bungalow.

Private fine dining in one of the world’s most romantic places is definitely a fantastic way to celebrate a honeymoon or anniversary.

Do you love Italian, Asian, French, Caribbean, Indian, or British pub style food?

What about fresh seafood from a seaside restaurant?

Or perhaps you prefer a meaty steak?

Sandals has it all.

The 5-Star Global Gourmet dining program is designed to give Sandals’ guests the best food experience possible.

So, if you want pizza late night after partying on the beautiful beaches of Jamaica, Saint Lucia, Bahamas, Antigua or Grenada, they’ll make it happen.

Another amazing feature of this dining program is that they cater to guests with food allergies and or special dietary requirements as well.

If you need gluten-free food or are lactose intolerant, the team at Sandals will work to make sure all your food is safe for eating.

It all goes back to ensuring guests are treated well throughout the duration of their stay. And treating your taste buds to unique and delightful flavors from around the world is an absolute must.

Just because you or your client is on vacation doesn’t mean the workout routine should suffer.

At Couples Resorts, guests can indulge while also finding numerous ways to remain an active lifestyle. These all-inclusive luxury properties in Jamaica feature stunning views as well activities to keep you moving.

Whether you’re staying at Couples Negril, Couples Swept Away, Couples Tower Isles or Couples San Souci, here are some fun ways to stay active.

Stay Fit

Couples Resorts feature fully equipped fitness centers, as well as land sports like tennis and golf.

Another great way to stay active is through watersports.

Barefoot Elegance: How Couples Stands Out in Jamaica

Posted By : travelisswell/ 76 0

Despite the emergence of an array of new brands and products among all-inclusive resort properties, Couples Resorts stands out among the pack as the only brand whose very name is synonymous with the clientele it accommodates: couples seeking romantic getaways where they can create memories that will linger far beyond the vacation’s end.

In all, the brand has four Jamaican properties: two in Negril (Couples Negril and Couples Swept Away) and two in Ocho Rios (Couples Tower Isles and Couples Sans Souci). Guests enjoy 24-hour gourmet dining and unlimited premium-brand spirits and complimentary Wi-Fi, plus special activities including a sunset catamaran cruise excursion, water skiing, Hobie Cat sailing, golf, tennis, non-motorized water sports and unlimited PADI-Certified Scuba diving.

Couples Q&A

What distinguishes Couples Resorts from the other all-inclusive properties and brands?

Couples Resorts defined the all-inclusive experience in 1978 and we are constantly refining it. From our founding, our intent has been to deliver a level of barefoot elegance, amazing cuisine and almost limitless inclusions designed to delight and surprise our guests day in and day out.

Our product is so unique and occupies a niche within Jamaica’s product offerings that is very appealing—to our first-time guests, our large percentage of repeat guests and to me. We are not the largest, nor do we want to be. We offer an experience, a way of life that is truly Jamaican. We are authentic to our core. All we have to do, as a sales and marketing team, is provide the exposure. As one of the prior Jamaica Advertising campaigns stated, ‘Once you go, you know.’ Find someone that has experienced Couples first-hand and you’ll see the delight in their eyes.

Whether you are the GM, the president of a large tour operator, a travel agent who works out of the home or the front desk agent who welcomes a guest to a property, our goal is to deliver an amazing experience that is above anything ever anticipated. Everything that we do must be focused on the guest experience, which in turn produces a product that is second-to-none.

How does Couples Resorts work with travel agents?

From our founding, the success of the Couples brand has been directly tied to the success of thousands of travel agents across the globe. Travel agent partnerships are a key part of our DNA. And with one of the most attractive agent incentive programs in the industry, we are working on future initiatives that will be even more rewarding.

In your view, what are Couples Resorts strong selling points—in terms of what guests will enjoy most?

Family—which may seem like an odd reply. We pride ourselves by saying, ‘We never have guests, we have family.’ Our property teams and countless guest volunteers work year-around to give back to the country of Jamaica through medical missions and adopting schools. Lee Issa, our chairman, with the soul of Jamaica pumping through his veins, is on property every day for hours, mixing and talking to countless guests. Our staff has developed countless bonds through the years with thousands of guests, each time welcoming them back by name.

How would you describe the typical Couples guest in terms of demographics and vacation styles?

First and foremost, our guests are anything but typical and range across all demographics. We have many guests from many walks of life, and they all come together for ‘One Love’ of Jamaica, and its people and a resort experience that is unique and unmatched … to celebrate a marriage or renew vows—the list goes on and on.
