All-Inclusive Luxury In Ocho Rios

With so many resorts embracing the all-inclusive approach, it is becoming a very crowded field — which makes it even tougher to truly stand out from the pack. But Sandals Royal Plantation has managed to do just that, and in an impressively short time. It may not have been around for long, but it has already made a big splash, getting noticed by such trusted authorities as Travel + Leisure, which named the property as one of the Best New All-Inclusive Resorts.
It isn’t hard to see what makes Sandals Royal Plantation worthy of such high distinction. Situated in the midst of beautiful Ocho Rios, Jamaica, this resort offers spectacular views and one-of-a-kind scenery that seems custom designed with peace and tranquility in mind. While arriving in a picturesque paradise is a great start, your trip will then be taken to the next level when you discover the level of top-notch service and personal attention that awaits you.
The staff strives to meet your every need — before you even have to ask. They cater to travelers who don’t want to have to make plans, weigh decisions or worry about little details. They take care of all of that for you, so all you have to do is relax and indulge in the pampering.

Unrivaled niceties such as afternoon tea service, unlimited fine dining at five restaurants, and unlimited premium brand drinks. You will also get to be among the lucky few who have the chance to experience Jamaica's only champagne and caviar bar. And for those who enjoy a round of golf while on vacation, there is the Sandals Golf Club, with unlimited play and green fees included. Transportation to and from the course is also complementary.
This is Sandals’ only all-butler boutique resort. That means providing immediate personal service 24/7 is the top priority. You can expect beach butler service on two private cove beaches. As you stroll around the painstakingly maintained grounds, you just might encounter a wandering peacock or any of the other species of native wildlife that live in the area.
If you want the ultimate in luxury and seclusion, consider staying in the Villa Plantana. It’s a private three-bedroom villa overlooking the property’s tranquil east beach, and boasting its own pool. You enjoy all of the amenities as any guest, but without any of the unwanted distractions. It’s like having your own personal tropical retreat.
