Posted By : travelisswell/ 33 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.
