It’s not hard to imagine why Jamaica is one of the world’s top vacation destinations. Unspoilt beaches, crystal clear waters, delicious dining, and a plethora of unique experiences combine to create the ideal travel experience. So the only question is, which resorts offer the best experiences in Jamaica?
Beaches spends all kinds of money advertising in America, and for good reason: It consistently ranks as one of the top hospitality businesses in Jamaica. Tourists can take a dip in one of the many pools or go to the beaches. When it’s time for dinner, you can find great indoor dining options or more casual al fresco dining. After dinner, a beautiful and romantic outdoor setting provides vacationers the opportunity to enjoy spectacular sunsets and beautiful night views.
Sandals is another highly rated hospitality company that specializes in taking Jamaican vacations from great to extraordinary. The chain has seven Jamaican locations to choose from, three of which are located in or near Montego Bay. Each location offers something different, so be sure to do your research ahead of time and think carefully about what kind of experience you want. For example, Sandals Royal Caribbean offers a beautiful private island for guests to explore, while Sandals Whitehouse sits next to a 500-acre nature preserve. Sandals Grand Riviera offers mountain views to the rear and beach views straight ahead, and is nestled within a tropical jungle.
If golf is your passion, head to the exclusive and historic Rose Hall Plantation area. The Ritz Carlton Golf and Spa Resort offers world-class golf at the 18-hole White Witch Golf Course. Carved into the island’s undulating topography, golfers can experience the championship-level challenges of the course while enjoying breathtaking panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea. The Ritz Carlton has received the prestigious “Five Diamond” rating from a leading travel critic. Thirty-six of the hotel’s 427 rooms are classified as Ritz Carlton Club level rooms. Each of the rooms features a private balcony and spacious rooms, and the hotel features a full-service spa, accented by locally-inspired treatments. And, if kids are involved, be sure to take advantage of the Ritz Kids program, with planned and supervised activities for kids ages five to 12.
Couples Resort is the pioneer of the “all inclusive” concept. Couples has four stunning locations in Negril and Ocho Rios, providing the perfect setting for a romantic vacation. Couples Resorts offers extraordinary selections of activities and adventures, including scuba diving, golf, fitness programs, and water sports. Travelers who are exhausted after a full day of activities can take advantage of the resort’s spas, which have been rated among the best in the world. The kitchen is first class and is available 24 hours. This adults-only resort will leave you feeling pampered and pampered.
Planning your Jamaican vacation is crucial, but investing the energy in advance will pay big dividends in the form of memories to last a lifetime.
