Surrounded by rich greenery and stunning flowering trees and plants, Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica is a little patch of paradise. Built upon a long stretch of Jamaica's beautiful coastline, this resort is the perfect base for an unforgettable Caribbean holiday. The resort is really two resorts in one. The Seaside and Beach Club by the waterfront is home to beautiful garden and the hottest beach club in Ocho Rios. However, if you're looking for something a little more relaxed and secluded, you can try the Hillside Villas & Great House Suites. Nestled amongst the beautiful St Ann Mountains, this peaceful haven is comprised of 93 luxurious villas and suites, along with a plantation-style Great House with its vast outdoor pool and sophisticated piano bar.
A huge range of choices for accommodations are available, and all are decorated and furnished in a luxurious style, with rich mahogany, plasma TVs and most coming with a four-poster bed. Some of the more exclusive villas and suites also include such features as whirlpool baths, private and semi-private pools, and the Sandals personal butler service, where your personal, fully-trained butler will be on hand to take care of your every whim and desire throughout your stay.
The facilities and services at this resort include everything one would wish for from a Luxury Included® resort. An array of sporting facilities are available, including a fully-equipped fitness centre, tennis courts and beach volleyball. Green fees at the prestigious Sandals Golf & Country Club are also included, as are transfers to and from the course, so you will be free to enjoy a round or two at one of the most challenging courses in the Caribbean. There are also opportunities to try out a range of water sports, or to take advantage of the extensive scuba diving program and explore the nearby coral reefs. Or if you're in the mood for something more relaxing, why not enjoy a massage in the on-site Red Lane® Spa, or simply enjoy a refreshing drink by the pool. With a choice of 15 restaurants on site, several bars and varied nightly entertainment, there is plenty to do in the evenings as well.
