Thanks to a new package from Sandals, fans of ABC’s hit television show “The Bachelor” can now recreate scenes from season 20.
In this season’s Fantasy Suites portion of the program — in which participants are whisked away to an exotic locale for one-on-one time with the bachelor — Ben Higgins, the titular bachelor, and three contestants jet off to Ocho Rios, Jamaica, for a romantic getaway. For those looking to have their own steamy vacation, Sandals Resorts is offering the new Beyond the Rose package at 14 of its properties throughout the Caribbean.
The Beyond the Rose promotion offers travelers the chance to stay in a Love Nest suite, Sandals’ highest room category that features personalized butler services, a candlelit dinner for guests who stay a minimum of four nights and a catamaran cruise — which will be featured in an upcoming episode of the show — for those who book at least seven nights.
The offer is available for booking until March 22, 2016, for travel throughout 2016 (blackout dates apply). The candlelit dinner is available until Nov. 21, 2016, and the cruise is available until Dec. 26, 2017. Guests can also get up to 65 percent off the suites’ rack rates through the package. Prices begin at $312 per person, per night for the suites.
Three suites included in the package have been featured on “The Bachelor.” Higgins and contestant Caila Quinn stayed in the Governor General suite at Sandals Royal Plantation, a favorite of celebrities such as author Ian Fleming, actress Marilyn Monroe, former prime minister Winston Churchill and actress Elizabeth Taylor, thanks to its ocean views and butler service. Rates for this suite begin at $697 per person, per night.
Higgins and contestant Lauren Bushnell stayed in Villa Plantana at Sandals Royal Plantation. Featuring three bedrooms and its own pool and personal butler, Villa Plantana begins at $1,058 per person, per night.
Guests can also book the Romeo & Juliet Sanctuary suite at Sandals Ochi, where Higgins stayed with contestant JoJo Fletcher. The suite has a private pool, an outdoor rain shower and a hot tub. Prices begin at $465 per person, per night.
In addition to Sandals Royal Plantation and Sandals Ochi, “The Bachelor” also featured Rio Chico by Sandals Resort — another property featured in the Beyond the Rose package — in its final episode.
