The most comprehensive Sandals resort features luxurious accommodation in two distinct settings.

Set within 100 acres of lush forest, this expansive couples-only resort is split into two different sections. The Riviera Seaside and Ochi Beach Club overlook half a mile of white-sand beach, while the secluded Butler Villas and Great House are located on the hillside above. If you feel like taking some time away from the sweeping private beach or the seven main swimming pools, you can take on the Caribbean’s largest rock climbing wall, which is situated within the Ochi Beach Club. Golfers can take advantage of complimentary green fees at the Sandals Golf & Country Club (caddies mandatory, payable locally). If you're looking to tie the knot in Jamaica then there's even a new overwater chapel which seats up to 50 guests, with superb 360-degree panoramic views and a glass floor aisle.

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to dining at the resort as the 16 restaurants – all of which are all included in the price of your holiday – feature a great range of international, casual and fine dining options. You can choose from authentic Jamaican, seafood, Japanese teppanyaki and sushi at different venues that are dotted around the resort. For afternoon cocktails and pre- or after-dinner drinks, there’s a choice of 11 bars.

The accommodation options are fantastic here, with the Riviera section of the resort offering plush Italian-style villas and suites, decorated in Mediterranean pastels with balconies overlooking a boardwalk and gazebos. Alternatively, for a more tranquil retreat, opt to stay in the Butler Village. Guests in these villas can enjoy luxurious extras such as a personal butler service and semi-private pool.
