Two of our top all inclusive resort recommendations are Sandals Grande Riviera and Sandals Emerald Bay. You might think because they are both Sandals Resorts; that they are both similar. Not so fast my friend. They both have "Sandals" in the name. Both are couples only all inclusive resorts; and both come with the "Luxury Included®" program. That's where the similarities stop.
Sandals Grande Riviera is located in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. This is our top recommendation for an all inclusive Ocho Rios Honeymoon. Jamaica is easy to get to from anywhere and thousands of guests arrive daily. Ocho Rios is an island explorer's paradise. You can visit waterfalls, swim with dolphins, bobsled, ride horses, bike down the blue mountains, shop duty free, and we'll just stop there, but you could explore this area for a month and not see and do everything. Ocho Rios is also very affordable.
Sandals Emerald Bay is located in the Exumas, part of the Bahamas. Most people think of the Bahamas as Nassau and Freeport, the bigger cities where the cruise ships stop. The Exumas consist of over 360 small islands that are nothing like the bigger cities where most persons take their Bahamas Honeymoon. The Exumas are not the easiest place to fly to. A day with more than 100 persons arriving is a big arrival day. The Exumas are paradise for anyone who loves white sand beaches and crystal clear blue water. These islands are off the beaten path and in the past have mostly just been enjoyed by yacht owners and sailing enthusiasts. Not only is Sandals Emerald Bay our #1 all inclusive Exuma Honeymoon recommendation, the resort is also the only all inclusive in the Exumas. Almost any tour here will involve the water and a boat. The Exumas are not for bargain hunters, this island is more for couples looking for a unique exotic escape.
