The Best of Both Worlds
Sandals Grande Riviera Resort and Spa is more like two resorts in one. One side of the resort is by the ocean and the other side is across the street and sprinkled amongst the gardens and mountains. Villas in the mountain area have 4 rooms per unit and share a pool, making this a great option for couples getaways and wedding groups.
The ocean side of the resort has been recently remodeled and is gorgeous. This resort is very economical and is close to major attractions like Dunn’s River Waterfalls and Mystic Mountain Rainforest. Golfing at the Sandals Country Club is also available and green fees are included in your all inclusive rate. This isn’t a choice for a quick getaway as it is over 1.5 hours from the airport. Perfect for couples looking for privacy, fun and plenty of choices and aren’t afraid of a little walking. Recommended for all-inclusive honeymoon packages, romantic vacations for two, destination wedding packages, and couples getaways.
From The Mountains to the Sea
Set in the lush St. Ann Mountains, the Sandals Grande Riviera has over 110 acres of magnificent seaside estate and includes exotic gardens, exotic rainforests, bubbling brooks, more than 100 pools, a gorgeous beach, and a golf course. The resort spans from the mountain hillside to the white-sand beach of the Caribbean Riviera. This resort represents all of the natural beauty that is Jamaica.
Two Resorts in One
Sandals Grande Riviera is really two resorts in one. You have the Riviera side which is closer to the beach along the Caribbean Riviera. The Riviera side is very lively and full of activities! Some of the best newly remodeled rooms are located on this side. The brand new pool is expansive and refreshing. You can rent a private beach cabana for the day and relax on a soft bed with cool shade overhead, while your lunch is brought right to your cabana for the ultimate beach experience. There is actually a road that separates the two sides of the resort. On the other side of the road is the Garden Side.
The Garden Side:
The garden side is tucked away in the Ocho Rios hillside, full of lush green, tropical trees and flowering plants, with 93 private and semi-private pools. The atmosphere on the Garden side is much more tranquil and relaxed. Sip a frozen daiquiri while you cool off in the monumental zero-entry Great House Pool.
Incredible Room Options
The Sandals Grande Riviera offers an astonishing array of newly re-modeled rooms, suites, cottages, and villa suites, each with its own special brand of luxury and charm. Many honeymooners choose the romantic Romeo and Juliet Suites, each with private pool. Some couples love the Villa Suites with semi private pool, while other couples can’t say no to a lofty penthouse suite, high above the Caribbean Sea or a Great House Suite with your own personal Butler.
Fifteen Dining Options
There are twelve exceptional restaurants and three bistros that bring a world of international cuisine right to your table. Each restaurant has its own menu and ambience, making each experience unique. Enjoy Asian a la carte cuisine at Orchids, or traditional Italian at Valentino’s. You can get an incredible pizza at the new Dino’s Pizzeria. The Western-themed grill offers incredible sizzling entrees, or you can indulge in international favorites overlooking the beach. There is now a Mariner’s Beach Grill where you can enjoy jerk pork and chicken, and a new Neptunes restaurant featuring Mediterranan cuisine with a seafood emphasis. Whatever your taste or your mood, the Sandals Grande Riviera offers an exceptional dining experience around the clock.
