Sandals St. Vincent and the Grenadines officially opens

Sandals Saint Vincent and the Grenadines opened its doors on March 27.

The opening marks Sandals Resorts’ eagerly anticipated introduction to the largely undiscovered Eastern Caribbean destination of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, where – enveloped by a mountain backdrop – the brand’s 18th all-inclusive resort offers an unrivaled sanctuary where guests can commune with nature, foster wellness, and cultivate lasting connections.

Sandals Saint Vincent and the Grenadines offers 301 rooms and suites across 50 acres.

“With its dramatic blues and incredible beauty, the Caribbean sea was meant to be explored. But at more than a million square miles, it was also meant to be discovered,” said Adam Stewart, executive chairman of Sandals Resorts International. “Sandals Saint Vincent unveils a little-known wonder we are proud to bring forward, not only for its show-stopping beauty but for the warmth and grace of its people. There is a joy here that pulses throughout and beyond 32 incredible islands. Sandals Saint Vincent was designed to honour that spirit, encouraging carefree exploration, pampered relaxation, and deep connection.”

About the property

Sandals St. Vincent offers guests access access to a 300-foot linear pool that connects the flora-framed lobby terrace to the horizon. Along the way, cabanas and cocktails invite guests to loll the day away, with three other pools surrounded by vegetation.

Innovative and thoughtful touches extend across each of the resort’s exquisitely appointed rooms and suites, where guests are welcomed with a refreshing, in-room signature cocktail of rum and coconut water.

At the heart of Sandals Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is the destination itself – bold, bountiful and richly colourful – with opportunities for exploration infused into nearly every touchpoint.

Guests of Sandals St. Vincent and the Grenadines will also enjoy:

  • Red Lane® Spa, offering treatments that harness the natural minerals found in volcanic sand to exfoliate and detoxify
  • Guided kayak experiences to Buccament Bat Caves
  • Rental bikes available to book
  • Interactive classes and tastings
  • vibrant festivities, from sunset parties on the beach to rum sensory experiences and movies under the stars
  • Sandals’ unlimited scuba diving program.

Two-storey villas

A pioneering concept for the brand, the Vincy Overwater Two-Story Villas will feature expansive spaces spanning two stories above the sea, as well as dedicated villa perks including an exclusive table at Buccan. Beachfront Villas offer a tranquil retreat just steps from the sand.

Insideguests are met with warm neutrals, organic textures, locally-sourced volcanic materials and pops of cool blue to create a harmonious connection with the island’s natural surroundings.

Many of the resort’s suites also feature elevated amenities –  from a dedicated media room and private pool to a personal fitness room with exercise bikes, yoga mats and a library of fitness classes. The brand’s signature butler service adds an additional level of luxury, with butler-level room guests treated to memorable moments.

From Harvest to Hearth and Beyond

Eleven culinary concepts – five novel to the brand – showcase the island’s bountie.

Guided by a lush jungle pathway and the spark of glowing embers, guests will find Buccanan immersive family-style, open-air culinary journey and the region’s first-ever solid fuel restaurant.

The cooking style, done in local clay yabba pots, becomes a centerpiece of the experience, turning local cedar and sustainable sources like coconut husks into coal as chefs rely on ancient culinary techniques to create a menu highlighting local ‘Vincy’ ingredients with seasonal platters designed for sharing.

Scrimshaw taps into the island’s abundant access to fresh seafood from its coveted location on the coastal shelf, starring curry conch fritters with a liquid centre; scallops with pickled, locally grown peanuts; and a vegan roasted pumpkin with lemongrass-tofu puree, spiced pumpkin seeds and red onion relish.

A sophisticated cocktail menu carries the narrative with the Scrimshaw Martini, finished with a dash of MSG for a unique umami experience to accompany fresh seafood dishes; and the Gin Tonica, a botanical excursion in a glass adorned with citrus wheels, rosemary pimento vermouth, and lime.

Parisol, an open-air beach club and kitchen, invites guests to salute the morning sun with smoothies that incorporate the viral superfood, sea moss; naturally gluten-free cassava flour pancakes; and locally loved ‘Bakes’ with salted fish and guava jam.

Day time bites are to be savored by the sea: from the tuna & charred cucumber aguachile to the snapper, skipjack, conch or lobster – served grilled, steamed or fried – accompanied by lemongrass rice and ginger cabbage slaw.

Imoro, a Sandals First ‘grab-and-go’ concept, is named after the Arawak term for ‘green,’ serving up healthy, veggie-focused bowls.

Vincy evenings come alive after the stunning sunset. Vibing to the beat of a curated selection of hand-picked vinyls, Three Jewels rum bar celebrates a quintessentially local Caribbean spirit, with a selection of 32 rums inspired by the destination’s 32 islands within 32 miles; more than two-thirds of the menu hones in on Eastern Caribbean distilled rums – one of five jovial bars around the resort.
