The Sandals brand is doing it again. After a very successful opening of their newly appointed overwater bungalows at their Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Sandals is now almost ready to open up their Sandals Grande St. Lucian Resort overwater bungalows. At the moment, the rooms are available for booking, though guests won't be able to stay in one until mid May. This news comes shortly after Sandals Resort International announced that they are in the planning and construction stages of their Sandals South Coast Jamaica overwater bungalows.

Each of the 9 overwater Honeymoon Butler Bungalows feature an entertainment system, a large 4-poster king size bed, Wi-Fi and the combination of both a butler service and 24 hour room service. In addition, guests will also find the necessities such as air conditioning, a coffee and tea maker, an iron and ironing board alongside various luxury items that include slippers, his and her robes, a Red Lane Spa amenity kit, a make up mirror and a pillow menu. But it doesn't just stop there. Proving their commitment to providing the best of the best, Sandals also offers a living room, a tranquility soaking tub, a refrigerator outfitted with water, juice and various sodas, a private outdoor shower, a bar filled with premium liquor and a glass floor cutout that provides a view of the underwater world without having to get wet.

Booking is now available for arrival dates starting May 15, 2017

The announcement of these overwater bungalows first came in 2012, but construction on those never began. Suddenly in early 2017 Sandals announced that the overwater bungalows are being built and that bookings are accepted for dates starting May 15, 2017. Room rates start at US$2,239 per night for two people, all-inclusive.


Currently, Sandals Grande St. Lucian Resort offers a large assortment of land based rooms for guests to choose from, along with various dining options, activities, amenities and nearby explorations. In addition, the resort plays hosts to a luxury spa that offers treatments catered to both women and men. Due to their location on the Gros Islet, each and every room offers views of the volcanic mountains surrounding the area.


Some of the activities included in your stay are snorkeling, scuba diving, knee boarding, table tennis, windsurfing and more. On-site, guests will also find a fitness center with various fitness activities, a boutique to shop at for goodies to take back to friends and family members, nightly entertainment and private cabanas.


Dining options are nearly endless with 12 different restaurants to choose from alongside a few different bars, one of which is pool side. The restaurants themselves cater to those who enjoy a wide arrangement of choices by offering a different cuisine at each one. If you prefer Italian one night, you’ll want to head over to Dinos Pizzeria Italiana restaurant. If the next night you’d prefer seafood, then The Mariner Seaside Bar and Grill or The Jerk Shack will serve as great options.


Those traveling to the Caribbean in search of a romantic destination vacation will find plenty of romance on-site with private cabanas to enjoy, luxury amenities in each and every room, couples treatments at the resort’s spa, sunsets cruises and of course, the resort’s newly built over the water wedding chapel.

    1. Yes, if you arrive from another country you’ll need a passport to enter Jamaica, even if you are a Jamaican citizen. You don’t need a passport to enter Puerto Rico if you are American, but unfortunately there are no overwater bungalows there. Sorry. -Roger

    1. Rute,

      You’ll want to contact Sandals about this. They have a phone number on their website. -Roger

  1. Yes they are being constructed, I have a friend who is working on the environmental side of the project and I have seen pictures of them under construction, can’t give a finish date though.

    1. Dianne,

      It turns out they just announced that they plan to offer them as of November 15, 2016, which is great news. Thanks for the update. -Roger

    1. Shadi,

      We haven’t heard anything new, unfortunately. I was even in Montego Bay last summer and heard nothing. These Caribbean overwater bungalows never seem to get going, although the ones in the Riviera Maya area will open on September 1, 2016. -Roger
