Aside from choosing between the beach located on the property or the beach on the off-shore island, our Travel Expert Kelsey Stafford shares what made her experience at Sandals Royal Bahamian unforgettable – and 5 pounds heavier.
This was my first Sandals experience and let me tell you, it certainly exceeded my expectations from start to end. I’m even 5 pounds heavier to show for it.
Sandals Royal Bahamian offers a variety of cuisine, with 10 restaurants to choose from (and only 3 of those requiring reservations). I was able to enjoy a good handful of the restaurants but my favourite by far was Kimonos teppanyaki restaurant. We were able to eat with a group and got a taste of a full-on teppanyaki experience; the chefs flipped food from the grill in to the mouths of the guests in our group. What a show!
Staying at the Royal Bahamian also means having access to the off-shore island, which also means more, more, more beach space, plus a pool and a cool swim-up bar. I can honestly say the beach was one of my favourite features of the resort. With all the extra beach space, I didn’t need to wake up at the crack of dawn to hold down a good spot in the sand.
From start to end I was living in luxury at its best. From arriving at the resort, to having our bags portered to our room, receiving a great Bahamian welcome (and a glass of champagne) from the staff, to checking into our room and just taking in the views.
I have to say, it was hard to leave. If you are searching for a place to relax, rejuvenate, eat, drink, and be pampered, the Sandals Royal Bahamian is the place to go. Sandals Resorts, I will be seeing you again soon!
