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. Your choice of accommodations is rich and varied, allowing you to customize your vacation to the way you want it. Free WiFi for all guests, occupying Club Sandals or higher categories of accommodation.

Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa allows you to 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.

Complimentary airport transfers to and from the hotel are included in the room rate.

BUTLER SERVICE
Offering the absolute pinnacle of personal service, those who reserve a Butler Suite will enjoy the extraordinary services of a personal butler trained by the most elite guild of valets. From the moment you arrive, every detail is handled with unobtrusive grace, with your butler ensuring that every moment of your stay is beyond flawless.

SPA
Discover a sanctuary for relaxation and rejuvenation at Red Lane Spa, where classic European rituals are reinterpreted with a distinctive Caribbean flair. You'll find a unique sense of tranquility with a selection of exclusive services infused with botanical products, transforming your quest for inner beauty into a journey of endless self-discovery.

DINING
At nine world-class restaurants, a global team of master chefs caters to your endless culinary cravings. From the fiery island dishes of Eleanor's and the stir-fry drama of an Emperor's Feast, to the heart-warming Italian cuisine of Mario's, passions of the palate are served to absolute perfection. And whether you like it spicy, tangy, zesty or sweet... in stunning settings that are on-the-beach casual or white-gloved chic, Sandals Grande Antigua has your mood-of-the-moment covered.

ACTIVITIES
You will find a wide range of activities waiting for you at Sandals Grande Antigua: land-based sports such as tennis, volleyball, outdoor chess and shuffle board, billiards and every board game imaginable. Watersports include sailing, scuba diving, windsurfing, kayaking... and more. At night, the energy level kicks up a notch with stage shows, live performances, opulent beach parties and the lively piano bar.

The Perfect Romantic Getaway - Sandals Resorts have been designed to fulfill and exceed every need and wish that two people in love could ever possibly have. Resort accepts couples only, ages 18 years and older.
