Walk over water at Sandals bungalows
If the idea of walking ‘over’ water appeals, pay a visit to Sandals Grande St Lucian. This fabulous resort has just unveiled nine bungalows which come with glass floor panels looking down onto the gently lapping Caribbean sea.
They are a design feat, blending the boho beach vibe with a streamline and contemporary style. Ceilings are vaulted, there is a smart TV and custom crafted king-size beds are adorned with soft linens and plush pillows for a great night’s sleep.
The bathrooms, kitted out with Molton Brown toiletries, are equipped with his and hers sinks, a large backlit mirror with mosaic tile and a walk-in rain shower. Outside, the private patio has an extended sun deck, soaking tub, shower, sun loungers and over-water hammocks.
The resort sits in a secluded spot, on its own peninsula cradled to the west by Rodney Bay and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean.
A truly luxury experience, celebrities and Instagram gurus are flocking to the bungalows for a healthy dose of escapism. Indeed, this is the stuff Insta dreams are made of.
There are 12 restaurants on site with international cuisines from Italy, the UK, Jamaica, India and the Orient.
However, despite the beautiful surroundings you may not want to leave the resort and there is always something to do with watersports, including snorkelling, scuba diving, paddle-boarding and canoeing, as part of the package. There is nightly entertainment as well such as a Saint Lucian street party or quiz shows featuring hotel guests.
Fronting one of the island’s most enviable beaches with panoramic views of the volcanic mountains, there are five pools in the grounds. This takes sunny escapism to new heights. Source Amira Hashish | independent.co.uk
