Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa


Voted "World's Most Romantic Resort" 12 years in a row, Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa beckons with two extraordinary vacations in one on Antigua's best and most famous beach, Dickenson Bay. Cooling trade winds soothe the soul as you immerse yourself in a seaside garden oasis graced by majestic palms at the authentic Caribbean Grove. Savor the sophistication of a fine European Hotel in the Six-Star, all-suite Mediterranean Village.

Awaken your most sensual side in an exotic Rondoval with its soaring 20-foot conical roof and spacious circular floor plan; or languish in the luxury of a 1400 square foot Mediterranean villa — both with private plunge pool and your own butler. Unwind in the East Caribbean's largest pool (one of six). Celebrate the high art of food and drink with world-class faire and intimate settings at nine restaurants and eight bars including an English pub. A night out on the resort is really like a night out on the town. Whether you're dining on classic Italian, sumptuous sushi, or a sizzling steak, Aphrodite presides over every meal as you share the most romantic vacation of a lifetime. Two perfect worlds in one grande resort all designed for love.
