Sandals Grande Antigua: Two Worlds. One Romantic Resort.


There are 365 beaches on Antigua, one for each day of the year. Some seem nature-made for sunbathing in seclusion, while others are the perfect starting point for adventures, be it on land or in the sea. Some beaches offer long stretches of pristine, powder soft sand edged by tropical foliage; others are perched beneath dramatic rock formations and soaring pillars of limestone that mark the ages. 

Dickenson Bay is Antigua’s most idyllic beach, where shallow calm waters and white sand make for the quintessential Caribbean experience. And it’s here that visitors to this remarkable island find Sandals Grande Antigua, perched along the best spot of a nearly two-mile stretch of beach.  

Dickenson's Bay, Antigua

The weddings team at Sandals Grande Antigua has helped countless brides and grooms create their dream weddings — elopements, intimate weddings, and epic wedding galas alike. Their expertise and passion shows in every detail.  

Of course, for the bride and groom, it’s all about the amenities and activities after the wedding, which is why the honeymoon begins after the vows have been exchanged. And the guests? Well, they get a vacation like no other, where anything and everything is possible. 

2 Resorts in 1

It all begins with the villages, both edging the waters of Dickenson Bay. In the Caribbean Beachside Village, couples and their guests can lose themselves in a lush tropical landscape. Meandering pathways wind through gardens blooming with colorful flora, leading to charming cottages and Rondovals™, Sandals’ unique suites-in-the-round.  

In the Mediterranean Oceanview Village, a piazza lined with restaurants and boutiques evokes the Italian Riviera. It’s here that butler villas edge the sea, with private plunge pools providing a tropical oasis. Every accommodation in the Mediterranean Village is a suite and offers breathtaking ocean views. 

No matter which village they choose, all accommodations are just steps from the beach, and all worthy of honeymoon bliss. 

Limitless Adventures or Endless Relaxation

After all that wedding planning, newlyweds (and their guests) may just want to chill out beneath the sun’s rays — something that’s a true pleasure on the beach, by any of the six resort pools, or even at their own private plunge pool, where a butler is on hand to serve drinks or snacks.  

But, for those seeking something a little more thrilling, there are plenty of land and water sports to keep them going. Tennis on courts ready for play, day or night. Paddle boarding, windsurfing, and kayaking. They can snorkel, PADI-Certified divers can enjoy complimentary daily dives.  

At night, the resort comes alive with entertainment, and they can take their pick from parties on the sand, game nights by the pool, or karaoke at the bar.

Indulgent Menus for Every Taste

Once their appetite for adventure has been whetted, guests will likely be hungry for a more delicious exploration — and there’s something to please every palate at Sandals Grande Antigua. There are 11 extraordinary dining experiences to be enjoyed at the resort, and seven bars where guests can enjoy unlimited pours of premium brand liquors day and night. 

When in the West Indies, why not indulge in Calypso flavors? That’s exactly what’s found at Eleanor’s, where ocean vistas are as spectacular as the cuisine. Equally delicious is the bounty served at Barefoot by the Sea, where guests can dig their toes into the sand while digging into the most mouthwatering maritime delights. Kimonos offers the perfect balance of dining and entertainment, with chefs, who have a few tricks up their sleeves, preparing dinner on a Teppanyaki table. The ambiance of Mario’s prepares guests for the flavorful dishes that are authentically prepared favorites from Italy’s Lombardi region. Many more dining options await, like a bountiful sushi spread at Soy, indulgent snacks at the Drunken Duck, and mouthwatering lobster at Barefoot by the Sea.   

Another experience that’s just perfect for a honeymooning couple: Private Candlelight Dinner. For a nominal fee, Sandals can set up a table for two under the stars with gourmet cuisine and sparkling wine.
