Sandals Is Opening Its New St Vincent All-Inclusive Resort in March 

By: Alexander Britell - January 10, 2024

It’s the most anticipated new resort on the island of St Vincent, well, maybe ever. In just two months, Sandals is opening the new Sandals Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, an all-inclusive resort that should inject significant new energy into the destination. 

The new resort, which is already taking reservations, now has an official opening date: March 27, 2024. 

It will be the second major new all-inclusive opening for Sandals in a year, following last spring’s celebrated launch of the new Sandals Dunn’s River resort in Jamaica. 

St Vincent is the ninth destination in the Caribbean for the Sandals brand, and, going by the track record, it’s likely that it should be a transformative new property for the island, long one of the least-visited places in the Caribbean (that’s excepting the islands of the Grenadines, which have long been very popular, particularly private-island destinations like Palm Island.)

That’s precisely what happened when Sandals debuted its Sandals Royal Curacao resort on that island in 2022, quickly ushering in record-breaking tourism arrivals, particularly from the US market. 

The resort, set on 50 acres, will have 301 rooms including, most notably, the first-ever overwater villas in St Vincent and the Grenadines. 

That’s along with 12 different dining concepts, five bars and five different pools. 

The overwater villas, a concept Sandals has defined in the Caribbean, are two-story overwater bungalows with outdoor tubs, sea windows in the floors and overwater hammocks, among other touches. 

Other special room categories include beachfront one-bedroom butler villa suites with their own private plunge pools, and Lady Palm Club swim-up suites, among others. 

Even better? It’s just a short drive from the island’s Argyle Airport, which first opened in 2017 as the island’s first-ever international airport, now receiving international flights from North America and the United Kingdom. 

That’s why we named the resort one of the best new hotels in the Caribbean for 2024.
