Privacy and a lush natural setting are highlights at this romantic, beachfront resort.
Clear, blue Caribbean waters provide the backdrop for this couples-oriented resort on the northern shore of Jamaica. Every one of the 150 breezy suites features a water view, as well as a king bed, iPod docking station, fresh blue-and-white color scheme and tasteful island art. Treatments at the spa are accompanied by the soothing sound of ocean waves, while health and wellness activities include tennis, yoga, Pilates and meditation classes. You can even learn tips for giving a massage.
Global bistro fare is the house specialty at Palazzina, and the casual Beach Grill & Bella Vista serves Jamaican favorites just steps from the water. Subdued colonial style sets the mood at Casanova, where local flavors mingle with international cuisine. For lunch, guests may also choose the healthy Veggie Bar, serving fruit and vegetable-based dishes. And for romantic meals for two, the resort offers private dining on the beach. The bar scene is as varied as the dining scene here, with a piano bar, martini bar, beach bar flag service and more. Four swimming pools are complemented with three Jacuzzis, a natural mineral water grotto and a clothing optional beach. Along with more traditional resort pursuits (golf, scuba diving, etc.), guests can also take classes in salsa, hat weaving and wood carving. Special packages are available for destination weddings and honeymoons.
