Hello! I hope your week is going well. I'm so happy it is finally Friday, but I do have a jam packed weekend ahead of me. I think it will be just as fun as it is busy though, so that totally makes it ok. :) I'm excited to share another Sandals resort that I visited with you. Today's resort has a completely different feel than any other Sandals property, but I totally love it!
Sandals Inn, formerly known as Sandals Carlyle, is a quaint little resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica. This bed & breakfast-esque resort is perfect for anyone looking for a charming, quiet, and reserved vacation, yet you can stay at Sandals Inn and play at Sandals Royal Caribbean and Sandals Montego Bay during the day. Sandals offers complimentary shuttle service between the three resorts, so you can take advantage of the amenities of all three. I'll be sharing more on those other two properties soon, but for now more on Sandals Inn.
This resort is located in the heart of Montego Bay, just a short walk down from the "Hip Strip", an area that features shopping and popular bars and restaurants. The resort features 4 room categories, all with complimentary 24 hour room service, leaving something for everyone. Sandals Inn is across the street from a small public beach, so you can still get those ocean views, but you can also shuttle to Sandals Royal Caribbean and Sandals Montego to take enjoy their private beaches. However, even if you want to stick around the resort, there is plenty to enjoy. The resort has 3 restaurants and 2 bars, a beautiful pool and whirlpool, and a stunning courtyard area where you can hear the sounds of the ocean.
I have added a stay at this sweet little property to my bucket list, and if you are into nice & quiet, you should too! Take a look at my photos of the resort below, and if you're dying to book a stay you can view more information on my Sandals Resorts site, and you can book your own trip there. But if you would like more one-on-one care, I would love to help you personally, just contact me. Wishing you a wonderful weekend. See you back next week!
Hello again! I hope you're having a beautiful Saturday morning. I've spent the last couple of days sharing about my stay at Sandals Ochi. I've shared the resort and the beautiful rooms, and today I want to wrap things up on Ochi with the stars of the resort, the pools & beaches! This stunning resort has a LOT of property which means there are tons of pool & beach options. With over 100 pools and 3 separate beach areas, there's something to pique every mood.
You've gotten a sneak peek at the beach from the photo above, and yes the water really IS that blue, but today you'll get to see a closer look. The largest pool at the resort is in the Great House area of the resort, and showcases the famous Sandals look, with the tower above the pool. This area is close to restaurants, and offers beautiful poolside cabanas.
Isn't that stunning? Even at night there is a beautiful view of the pool from one of the Great House restaurants. Along with this pool, there are many others scattered throughout the property, including one perfectly overlooking the ocean. Hello, swimming sans the salt water!
Now that you've seen a few of the gorgeous pools, let's skip to the beach! Like I mentioned, there are 3 beach areas at Sandals Ochi. There is Ochi Beach Club, which offers a party atmosphere with games, hoppin' bars, and more right on the beach, a "lounge" beach I call it, which offers a blocked offer area of the ocean where you can float away without literally floating away, and Honeymoon Beach, which is a quieter area where some of the water sports are located as well as candlelit dinners on the beach. Between the Ochi Beach & "lounge" beach areas there are also the Sandals' boats for water sports, a promenade with fire pits & seating, perfect for catching a sunset, and local artisans selling anything from shoes to paintings to conch shells. Now be prepared for photo overload of the gorgeous water!
I like to warn people that this resort is very large, however that means there is even more to keep you entertained during your stay. Sandals Ochi is a stunning resort, and truly hope you've enjoyed this first hand account of the resort. You can view more information on my Sandals & Beaches Resorts sites, and you can book your own trip there. But if you would like more one-on-one care, please contact me. I would love to help with your dream trip! I'll see you back next week with more on Sandals & Beaches Resorts in Jamaica.
Welcome back! I hope you enjoyed yesterday's post on Sandals Ochi Resort in the beautiful Ocho Rios, Jamaica! I'm excited to be back again with more details on the beautiful rooms offered at Ochi. There are 20 room categories at Sandals Ochi Resort including rooms, suites, and private villas, one of which was featured on The Bachelor (and I saw it with my own eyes!!). With so many room options, that leaves something for everyone--any occasion and many price points, it also helps that Sandals is always offering amazing deals on its resorts, making that famous Romeo & Juliet Suite from The Bachelor a real life possibility for your vacation!
During my stay at Sandals Ochi, I was lucky enough to enjoy the Butler Village Oceanview One Bedroom Poolside Villa Suite atop the Butler Village "mountain". Though it was aways from the ocean, it was a beautiful suite with quick access to the beach via shuttle & a semi-private pool. The smaller pool at the villa served 3 other suites (so 4 in total), but I never saw another soul around! So it could essentially be super private. I loved that this suite was nestled on a hillside among the trees and greenery, yet still had a view of the ocean in the distance. Here is a look at this fab villa suite.
A very similar villa to the one above is the Butler Village One Bedroom Poolside Villa Estate Suite. The pool for these villas serves 2 rooms rather than 4 like above. Here's a quick shot of the pool area.
I've saved "the big one" for last, the Butler Village Honeymoon Romeo & Juliet One Bedroom Suite with Private Pool, featured on a one-on-one date episode of The Bachelor. Ben Higgins & JoJo Fletcher stayed in this sweet little love nest, nestled on the hill at Sandals Ochi. This villa pulls out all of the stops, including a butler, just for you, that leaves no detail untouched! These villas include a living area, bedroom & bath, both separated by a stunning courtyard with a private pool. Take a look at this stunning room, and the beautiful touches left by the villas' butler.
If you're more into being close to the beach, Sandals Ochi still has plenty to offer! With a second section in The Caribbean Riviera area, Ochi many beachfront options. Even though Ochi is a large resort, this allows for rooms with tons of privacy and some among the action close to the beach. I've shared photo overload on Sandals Ochi, and still have a bit more to share tomorrow. So check back then for views of the amazing pools and stunning ocean & beach views.
You can view more information on my Sandals & Beaches Resorts sites. You can book your own trip there, or if you would like more one-on-one care, please contact me. I would love to help with your dream trip!
Welcome back! Time certainly got away from me yesterday with an afternoon dentist appointment. But the numbing finally wore off, and I'm excited to share more of my Jamaican adventure with you! As I mentioned the other day, I jet setted off to Jamaica at the end of August for an exciting training with Sandals & Beaches Resorts. I had an amazing, albeit tiring time touring several of their properties. It was so exciting to see these resorts in person, and get a better idea of where I'm sending my clients. It allows me to give first hand, seen with my own eyes information to give everyone the best romantic or family vacation as possible! Although I won't share every last detail, I do want to share the basics. I'm going to start with the resort I called home each night, and since I spent a lot of time there, I have broken it up into three separate posts. So if you are interested in more, be sure to check back! So I am going to start with the super popular Sandals Ochi in Ocho Rios, Jamaica!
This is one of Sandals largest properties, but that only means it has so, so much to offer! There are 20 room categories at Sandals Ochi including private villas, rooms, and suites, so there is literally something for everyone! Ochi offers over 100 pools and over 20 hot tubs all throughout this double sectioned resort. The resort is broken up into to parts with two spas and 17 dining options among the two areas. It also offers complimentary greens fees at Sandals Golf Course and Country Club nearby. This hopping resort also has rock climbing, multiple bars, including the only speakeasy in the Caribbean-password required for entry (so fun!), movies on the lawn, and numerous non-motorized water sports, all complimentary! As with all Sandals properties, they really went above and beyond with Ochi. Below are quite a few photos so you can see for yourself, and if you are interested in more details visit my Sandals website or contact me to book your own Ochi getaway or honeymoon! See you back later this week for a closer look at some of the AMAZING rooms, pools, and beaches at Sandals Ochi.
