#1 - Sandals Grande St. Lucia

For a honeymoon celebration, St. Lucia is our all time favorite destination and the Grande is our #1 pick for the best Sandals resort for a honeymoon. This island is truly magical and will captivate your mind, body and soul. Here towering mountains and fern-frilled jungles bring about a complete sense of relaxation and the location of this resort feels secluded and exclusive. At Sandals Grande St. Lucia they build upon this feeling and have created a resort that will give you the ultimate honeymoon vacation experience. Sandals Grande St. Lucia offers panoramic bay views nestled in a protected bay with sailboats and yachts docked in it's calm waters; best of all it’s on one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. It offers an endless number of restaurants, recreation and amenities along with some of the BEST diving you’ll do anywhere in the Caribbean. And with the free inter-Sandals shuttle service, there are up to 27 restaurants and numerous beach options available between the three Sandals resorts in St. Lucia.


Note… because of its unique position on the northern side of the island, getting to Sandals Grande St. Lucia can be a bit bumpy and the transfer time is approximately ninety minutes. If this a concern we recommend a helicopter transfer to the George F.L Charles Airport which is only about 15 minutes away from the Grande. Even if you’re comfortable with the drive, this transfer to the north is one that you’ll remember for a lifetime!

Why is Sandals Grande St. Lucia our #1 pick for the Best Sandals Resort for a honeymoon?

  • From the breathtaking views in the lobby as you exit your transfer, this resort a true representation of paradise. It's something that's hard to photograph or even write about however, when you're there you feel it from the moment you arrive.

  • While the resort is beautiful, the amazing people who work at Sandals Grande St. Lucia make this an exceptional destination.

  • The food is world-class and there are twelve restaurants to choose from including one of our favorites “Gordons on the Pier”. The chef is attentive to strict dietary needs and will be more than happy to create a meal plan for any Vegan’s, vegetarians or anyone with allergies.

  • The rooms, while not super modern as compared to the brand new Sandals resorts are well appointed and the Caribbean beachfront suites have spectacular views of Rodney Bay.

  • The Red Lane Spa at Sandals Grande St. Lucia features a rare amenity in that it includes a eucalyptus steam room. All guests have access to it but is rarely used so make sure to visit and enjoy this experience!

  • The main pool hosts a swim-up bar where all the activity takes place. The playmakers will keep you entertained but if you’re looking something more relaxed there are secluded retreats and quiet pools around the resort.

  • The Beach is beautiful as is the ocean that surrounds it. If you’re into snorkeling you can swim with fish and coral right around the main pier.

  • There are plenty of lounge chairs around the pools and on the beach.

  • Non-motorized watersports are all included so if you're into sailing, scuba diving, kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boards, it's all available.

  • The dive team is exceptional as is diving in St. Lucia. From beautiful coral reefs to seeing the pitons from the ocean after completing your surface interval it'll give you a true sense of appreciation for nature.

  • While we believe Sandals Grande St. Lucia is the best resort on the island we love getting off property and visiting the other resorts. As a guest of the Grande, you stay at 1 and play at 3. Best of all there is complimentary shuttle service both to and from Sandals Regency LaToc and Sandals Halcyon.

  • New to Sandals Grande St. Lucia are the overwater bungalows which are perfect for a honeymoon celebration. If you’re looking for an exclusive experience, these are for you! Contact us today for more information.

Additional considerations and tips about your honeymoon at Sandals Grande St. Lucia:

  • The resort transfer takes approximately 90 minutes through windy, sometimes narrow roads. It is a scenic drive but for those who are prone to car sickness, we'd recommend the helicopter transfer which reduces the transfer time down to about 15 min (plus a short drive to the Grande).

  • Dinner reservations are required at a few of the restaurants. If you’re in Club Level, contact your concierge as soon as you arrive to make your reservations as they tend to fill up quickly. If you are in a butler category, consult with your butler so they can do it for you. Those in the Luxury category, there is a food and dining representative in the main lobby who will assist you making your reservations.

  • All of the beaches in St. Lucia are public so there will be a few vendors selling tours but they are friendly and a "no thank you" is enough to let them know you’re not interested. If you are interested, there are some good ones include the Simon Says & Joe Knows tour.

  • Guests are able to walk to the village and to Pigeon Park. You can climb Pigeon Mountain for $7.00. The spectacular views are well worth it. Wear Sneakers!

  • Sandals Grande St. Lucia and Beach Resort is a great place to relax and get enjoy time together. If you're looking for something truly unique for your honeymoon our travel blog "Planning the Perfect St. Lucia Getaway" highlights our trip between Sandals Grande & Stonefield Estates.
