If you watched The Bachelor this season, you saw Ben and the girls at Sandals more than a few times. We’ve been ourselves (specifically to Sandals Whitehouse in Jamaica) and can’t say enough great things about our time there. We thought we’d take the opportunity to share a few of Sandals’ prettiest resorts and showcase some of the properties that Ben and other in-love couples might adore – whether for an engagement, wedding, or honeymoon! Warning: you’ll probably want to go to at least one.
1. Sandals Royal Plantation: website
Your dream girl will feel like she’s getting the final rose the moment you step onto this resort. The views are unreal, the meals aren’t too far off, and the water’s color will truly impress you.
And what’s extra awesome is that you can create your own ‘love journey’ through their Beyond the Rose package. The package is available at all of the Sandals Resorts throughout the Caribbean (for a limited time), but Jamaica is where the pretty proposal above took place. You can recreate some Ben’s most romantic experiences there, including accommodations in a Love Nest Suite, candle-lit dinner on the beach and a ton of island excursions.
After she says “Yes!”, break open the bubbly and toast to your new life together. Reserve a table for two and celebrate with a romantic, ocean-side dinner. Then kick back and bask in your newly engaged glow as you spend the evening in your very own fantasy suite.
2. Sandals Royal Caribbean in Jamaica: website
If you’re wondering what that island is in the photo above – it’s a private Sandals Island. It’s inspired by the Orient (think Thai food, dragon boats, and the Red Lane Resort Spa). Hearing all these things makes us feel like this is the perfect proposal spot – private, amazingly gorgeous, and exotic.
We’ll also take this opportunity to express how important it is to add primping into your proposal plans. A manicure is a must (the ring needs a great hand to sit on), and a couples’ massage is a great way relax together as a newly engaged couple.
3. Sandals Barbados: website
We’re going to get right to the point: SWIM-UP SUITES. You can literally open your doors to the sun and the pool (see photos below). We can’t think of anything more dreamy than that.
This Barbados resort has such a luxurious vibe, plus there are so many water activities (all free) to choose from. We’re talking canoes and kayaks, paddleboards, snorkling and scuba diving, boogie boards and even a glass bottom boat.
This place screams honeymoon if you ask us.
4. Sandals Grande St. Lucian: website
St. Lucia is talked about a lot these days – especially for honeymooners. The island itself is stunning and filled with adventure and relaxation (the perfect combination). If you want to propose at the top of a great hike, head over to the Pitons. If you’re doing more low-key, have Sandal’s butler service deliver your ring box while you’re sitting on their private beach. The resort is on its own peninsula, which is awesome, and the rooms also have swim-up rooms.
Whether you’re already engaged and are ready for the honeymoon of a lifetime, or you want a proposal that will make your girl say, “Ben Higgins who?” Sandals has so many amazing resorts and we’ve got more Sandals marriage proposal ideas here.
