Sandals South Coast Reviewed for 2024

Set amid a 500-acre wilderness preserve, this all new re-imagined adults only resort is the perfect combination of European charm and all-beachfront accommodations. Formerly Sandals Whitehouse, Sandals South Coast features the newest design and amenity standards for the Sandals brand. It offers guests an over-water bar with loungers, heart shaped over-the-water Bungalows and for those looking at an exclusive destination wedding experience there is an over water chapel with a glass floor. All guest rooms and suites feature patios or balconies that overlook a gorgeous white-sand beach and are well appointed with four-poster beds and large bathrooms. At Sandals South Coast you can dine at nine extraordinary restaurants that have been created to deliver authentic regional specialties from Italian, Asian and Mediterranean, to Caribbean, Jamaican and more. If you’re wanting to have an active vacation, the activities and inclusions are endless and with Sandals it’s all included! At Rivage Travel, we love this resort and love sending our clients here. The beach is private and its proximity makes it feel like you’re isolated from the rest of the world while still being connected to many of the modern amenities we’re used to.
