Adults-only Barbados

Our verdict:

There are plenty of family-friendly all-inclusives in swanky Barbados, but only two for couples only. Sandals Barbados opened in January 2015 on the iridescent white sands of Dover Beach in the lively south of the island. Upping the ante even further, Sandals Royal Barbados opens in December 2017

Sandals Barbados says

Introducing our newest Caribbean destination, the thrilling island of Barbados. This vibrant and exotic island is now home to two stunning Sandals resorts – Sandals Barbados which opened in 2015 and the brand new Sandals Royal Barbados, which opened in late 2017.

  • 17 restaurants
  • Free weddings
  • Rooftop pool

Located in the spirited St. Lawrence Gap area, both resorts are mere steps from Barbados’ best beaches and offer the ultimate in five star luxury.

The first couples-only resort in Barbados, Sandals Barbados gives you the chance to unwind to the relaxed calypso beat, enjoy the sun and surf or simply lounge in your sumptuous suite. Explore an impressive array of international cuisines, including Indian, Caribbean and Japanese, as well as enjoying free and unlimited land and water sports.

Set to be the most exclusive all-inclusive to date, Sandals Royal Barbados boasts all the luxuries one would expect from a Sandals resort, as well as so much more. This all-suite resort includes several Sandals firsts, such as a four-lane bowling alley, men only barbershop and the first rooftop pool and bar.

Barbados is made for lovers, with its stunning natural beauty and long tradition of hospitality and, as you might expect from Sandals, our Luxury Included® prices mean that virtually everything and anything you might want on your honeymoon is included in the price.

If you want to tie the knot, an exclusively-designed wedding garden and free wedding and honeymoon packages are available.
