Message   FROM        the Chairman
      F
           or 25 years, we have been providing our guests with the finest all-inclusive
           vacation experience anywhere with our two distinct brands — Sandals for
           couples and Beaches for families. Along the way, we’ve refined that experience,
      adding more services and amenities so that first-time visitors and our many return-
      ing guests alike can have vacations that are even more luxurious.
           At Sandals, we take our leadership role within the all-inclusive market seriously
      and are always looking for new ways to provide even more value, more choice and
      more things for you to enjoy on your vacation. It’s a simple philosophy: we keep
      getting better so you’ll keep coming back.
           Each of our resorts has its own unique personality and flavour, so you can find
      one that’s just right for you or try a different one each vacation. Some are big and bold,
      others are quiet and intimate, and some — due to their design and scale — offer a
      variety of vacation experiences right within one resort. Spend one day beach-side and
      the next high in the hills in your own private villa and pool.
           We want your vacation to be exactly the way you want it to be. Our exciting new
      partnership with world-renowned wedding designer Preston Bailey means that you
      can have a lavish designer wedding at a Sandals or Beaches resort at a very reasonable
      cost. Of course, our free weddings are still available too with exquisite venues of your
      choice.
           Our partnership with Sesame Street has been a runaway success, and now Bert
      and Ernie have joined in the fun. Kids tell us they can’t get enough of the live stage
      shows, character breakfasts and other daily activities.
           Our new butler service — another exclusive to Sandals and Beaches Resorts —
      means guests enjoying our top suite categories have the additional value of their own
      personal butler.
           On behalf of all the dedicated staff at Sandals and Beaches Resorts, I extend a
      warm Caribbean invitation to visit us soon.

      All that’s good,
