Those daydreams of catching a flight, sipping on tropical cocktails, sunbathing on white-sand beaches, and enjoying the luxuries of total privacy are finally coming true — and it all began with Sandals Grande Antigua. A singular, but bold reopening that served as a beacon of hope for the future of travel. Sandals Resorts #backtohappy isn’t just a hashtag.
Stepping back into paradise, Sandals wanted to ensure that every reopening was as safe as possible for both guests and team members. That’s why all 18 resorts implemented the Sandals Platinum Protocols of Cleanliness. By training all staff and mapping out a list of 18 touch points, Sandals Grande Antigua was first to put the protocols into action and to start getting guests back to their happy place in the Caribbean.
It was a long-awaited turning point in which Caribbean tourism had officially begun its comeback and Sandals Resorts was leading the way, giving travelers a reason to grab their passports again.
And now, Sandals is giving everyone more reasons to get #BackToHappy.

Across every resort, guests can be seen reveling in luxury again, soaking up the Caribbean sun right from their private beach-side cabanas, reconnecting with each other over private candlelight dinners beneath the stars, and suspending themselves in over-the-water hammocks made for two, while sipping on piña coladas. All of this bringing them #BackToHappy in the process.
