Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa 

Where everything is possible

This exceptional couples-only resort offers a beautiful setting, outstanding facilities and incredible choice.

Experience a stylish blend of Caribbean and Mediterranean at this expansive resort which features two ‘villages’. The traditional Caribbean Beachfront Village is lined with pathways winding through seaside gardens of coconut palms, tropical vines and vibrant hibiscus. Inspired by Europe’s elegant plazas and grand villas, the modern Mediterranean Oceanview Village has elegant open spaces with manicured lawns, beautiful pools and a chic French patisserie.

Why we love Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa

  • It offers two resort experiences in one: the laid-back charm of the local-style beachfront and the chic Mediterranean area beyond

  • It’s on a spectacular silky-white beach where you can relax in the shade of a private cabana complete with a personal attendant

  • There’s an impressive selection of activities on land and at sea, including scuba diving, which is free for certified divers

  • You can eat your way around the globe at the 11 restaurants, each offering fine cuisines including Italian, Asian and Caribbean
