July 5, 2021Tom Spruce

As the UK continues to work towards a complete unlock. We’ve looked at seven Caribbean green list resorts that are ideal for getting back out there.

These Caribbean green list resorts are your perfect pandemic escape route

Now that the Caribbean is on the green list, and there’s quarantine-free travel to amber destinations. We thought we’d tell you about some incredible Caribbean green list resorts providing the perfect escape from the misery of the last 18 months. 

In this blog we’ll take a look at seven resorts that symbolise the perfect post-pandemic getaway. 

But what are these superb stays?


The magnificent seven

  • Excellence Oyster Bay
  • El Dorado Seaside Suites
  • Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa
  • Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa 
  • The Abidah By Accra 
  • Sandals Barbados
  • Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa 

Amber listing

Now, we know what you’re thinking “some of those destinations are on the amber list” and you’d be correct. However, with the government’s latest announcement of quarantine-free travel for vaccinated passengers, essentially the green and amber list are one and the same. 

All you need to do is make sure you’re all jabbed up at least 14 days before you go and Bob’s your uncle. He can go with you if he’s had his jabs.

But enough about vaccines and the semantics, let’s take a look at these stunning destinations in more depth. 



Excellence Oyster Bay

Discover some long-awaited opulence at Excellence Oyster Bay. This shimmering ode to romance and memory making sits delicately on beautiful Oyster Bay. Offering direct beach access as well as great positioning for exploring everything the Trelawny region of Jamaica has to offer. 

All 315 rooms in the resort benefit from modern design features which all help to draw your eye to the panoramic sea views

Then when it comes to ending the day, you can kick back with a choice of eight restaurants serving a plethora of cuisines. And don’t forget the 10 bars.

El Dorado Seaside Suites 

Why not make your first foray back out into the world a five-star Mexican adventure? After all, you’ve waited long enough!

At El Dorado Seaside Suites the resort is split into two sections. You get the chance to stay in either the more authentic Mexican Palms side. Or the opulent oceanfront Infinity section. 

But whichever side you choose you’ll be greeted by a world of adventure or relaxation. With the largest coral reef in Riviera Maya on the doorstep and archaeological destinations, Eco Parks, and natural Cenotes waiting to be explored too it’s the perfect Mexican expedition. Oh and did we mention Playa del Carmen and Tulum are just a short drive away.
