30 times in 30 years. That’s an incredible vote of confidence in the resort chain named “The Caribbean’s Leading Hotel Brand” for the 30th time at the 30th annual World Travel Awards. It wasn’t the only win for Sandals Resorts International, either. It scored 13 more prestigious awards.
Sandals Resorts International is the parent company of two luxury, all-inclusive resort chains: couples-only Sandals resorts, and family all-inclusive Beaches resorts.
In addition to the company as a whole winning top honors, individual resorts also brought home the gold. The all-new Sandals Dunn’s River (pictured), which opened its doors in May of 2023, celebrated its first wins as the Leading Luxury All-Inclusive Resort and Caribbean's Leading New Resort.
You need to experience Sandals’ newest Jamaican resort to see why. The all-inclusive resort features entirely new ways to experience the natural treasures of the island, with cascading waters throughout the resort sourced from the nearby Dunn’s River Falls. You’ll also find unique room concepts completely new to Sandals resorts, such as the Coyaba Sky Villa Swim-Up Rondoval Suites and Tufa Terrace Skypool Suites.
In another win, Sandals Royal Curaçao won Curaçao's Leading All-Inclusive Resort for the second year in a row. Couples will find the resort may be the best place to explore the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao, with its luxury suites and sprawling bungalows, access to MINI Cooper convertibles, and Island Inclusive dining program.
