The place to be!

Jamaica is the third largest island in the Caribbean and lies just south of Cuba. This island boasts something for everyone with hundreds of miles of unspoilt, quiet beaches and a colourful cultural and cosmopolitan heritage. Jamaica is widely considered to have the most stunning landscapes to explore.


Visitors are drawn to Jamaica for its beaches, grand hotels, superb all-inclusive resorts, and laid-back inns. Most are impressed with the sounds of reggae, the taste of jerk cooking, and the warm, friendly smiles of the locals.


Add to this, several world-class golf courses, charming old plantation houses, and tiny villages dotted through the majestic Blue Mountains, (where they grow the best coffee in the world), all in a relaxed atmosphere and you’re jamming!


Our Jamaica Offers


Relax and Recharge

Treat yourself to that special holiday you deserve in the glorious sun-drenched Caribbean


With brilliant blue seas, sublime beaches, and a blistering range of extraordinary things to see and do, Jamaica makes a fantastic holiday for anyone and everyone. And if this year you’ve decided you need something extra-special – you’re celebrating perhaps, getting married or engaged, or just because you deserve it – there are few finer places where you can relax and recharge in ultra-comfort, body, and soul, than this idyllic island.


Luxury comes in many forms, and Jamaica has it all. Every creature comfort you need is available at a selection of first-class hotels offering superb accommodation; from cottages and villas with private pools to beachfront rooms and spacious suites with oversized balconies and terraces, in glorious settings by the beach, exotic rainforest, or on dramatic cliffsides. Excellent service means you’ll be well looked after wherever you choose; allowing you another priceless luxury - unlimited time to reconnect with loved ones.


Pay attention to partners and enjoy some much-needed me time, too, during a day chilling on the beach; having a relaxing massage in the spa perhaps; savouring a delicious meal in a fine-dining restaurant; or sipping a refreshing sundowner cocktail as you watch a shimmering sun set over the Caribbean Sea. Luxury also means having the opportunity to try some of the extraordinary experiences Jamaica’s best resorts offer, from intimate private dinners in the caves of Negril to sweetheart swims in the warm waters of the Blue Lagoon; from adventure climbs up natural waterfalls to unforgettable horse rides along a pristine beach. Memories are made of this.

Jamaica hotel


We’re the island of happy days, vivid nights and unforgettable experiences


Jamaica has a wealth of things to do for all holidaymakers, but luxury holidays allow you to access to a range of extra-special experiences. How about sunrise yoga and meditation in an overwater bungalow or truly unforgettable horse riding on the beach, available at Half Moon? If you crave something a little more active, Goldeneye offers you complimentary non-motorised water sports, including paddle boarding and kayaking.


Stay at Round Hill and nearby attractions available include floating through a pristine tropical river on a bamboo raft, ziplining through lush island foliage, or dancing the night away on a private sunset cruise. The resort itself offers beachside or poolside treatments, and there’s a couple’s suite, so you can tuck yourselves away and enjoy a massage together - Strawberry Herbal Back Cleanse, anyone?


All the history, beauty, warmth and colour of Jamaica is perfectly distilled in its iconic food


Eating well is a whole lot easier if you choose to stay in a resort with a great chef, and the good news is Jamaica has great taste. You’ll find popular stand-alone restaurants such as Marguerite’s at Montego Bay and L’Escargot in nearby Runaway Bay, which offers fine French delicacies and wine pairings. In addition, all luxury hotels pride themselves on the quality of their chefs and restaurants.


The Sugar Mill at Half Moon is one of Montego Bay’s long-established, fine-dining options. The Caves, Negril, offers unforgettable dining at a private table for two in caves strewn with luscious pink bougainvillaea petals and illuminated with flickering candles. In another secret cave you’ll find the extraordinary Blackwell Rum Bar where you can sip a nightcap and watch the moonlight dancing on the waves…can you imagine anything more romantic?
