Getting married in the near future? Your wedding plans won’t be complete without booking your perfect honeymoon spot in Jamaica. The island consistently ranks among the world’s top wedding and honeymoon destinations and there are several reasons why.
For one, the island has an ideal blend of sun, sea, sand, and scenery that makes it great for fun, relaxation, and sightseeing. In addition, there are a number of hotels dotting its coasts that create the perfect atmosphere for love and intimacy to further spark the fire that comes with a new marriage.
With that said, here are five of the best hotels and resorts for a Jamaican honeymoon.
1. Couples Sans Souci
The name says it all, really (Sans Souci is French for “without a care”). Couples Sans Souci is part of the world-class Couples chain of hotels and is located in Ocho Rios. Almost any Couples resort could have made the list for ideal honeymoon spots but the Sans Souci location probably has a slight edge over its counterparts due to its preserved natural setting. Like its sister properties, it is designed especially for lovers but it excels in areas such as a lush, tropical scenery, uncrowded beaches, and cushy suites with private balconies. One of its perks, especially for those with risqué intentions, is its clothing-prohibited beach and pool, where you and your partner can merge with nature. As one of the few truly all-inclusive resorts, you get access to premium food and drinks, as well as added benefits such as free Wi-Fi, planned trips, watersports, and other activities, all covered in the cost. The property is also close to some world-class attractions, including Dunn’s River Falls and Dolphin Cove, just in case you might want to get out and explore a little.
2. Jamaica Inn
Ranked as one of the best boutique hotels in Jamaica, Jamaica Inn is a hotbed of private indulgence, relaxation, and romance for couples. Its old world charm, unspoiled scenery, and pristine, soft sand beach allow for a totally stress-freeing experience. Also, the resort’s set up, which includes 48 tastefully designed suites, encourages deep conversations and intimacy by eliminating distractions such as TVs and radios. Its outdoor showers, private plunge pools (with selected suites) and soaking tubs in some rooms also promote an aura of relaxation that ensures every second of your honeymoon is memorable. Jamaica Inn also has a spa on the property where you and your special one can experience what it means to be pampered. If you’re looking for water sports and other activities, there are a number of them as well, including kayaking and paddle boarding. Located in Ocho Rios as well, Jamaica Inn is near to attractions such as Dunn’s River Falls and Dolphin’s Cove.
3. Golden Eye
Small and luxurious, the Golden Eye resort is an attractive option for those looking to incorporate their honeymoon with a slice of history. The property, located in Oracabessa, St. Mary, is famous due to it being Ian Fleming’s past hideaway where he penned his James Bond novels. Its 21 cottages and villas, spread over 52 acres, featuring all the luxurious pleasantries and amenities imaginable, as well as a stunning array of activities. There is a large private beach, treehouse spa, and delectable food offerings from two world-class restaurants. Its carefully sculpted surroundings is an experience in itself. While Golden Eye is one of the priciest hotels in its class, it is highly sought after for its private, secluded atmosphere that allows couples a genuinely intimate experience they won’t forget any time soon. It’s no wonder famous personalities, including Beyoncé and Jay-Z, keep stopping by.
4. The Caves
Set on solid rock caressed by the crystal blue of the Caribbean Sea, this small property exudes coziness, class, and romance all at once. The world-famous spot in Negril gets its name from the chambers carved out under the rocks by the sea and has lots to offer the honeymooning couple. It is comprised of 12 cottages, all uniquely designed to take full advantage of the cliff the property is built on. Private caves allow you to enjoy ultra-romantic candlelight dinners if you so desire. There is also a highly-recommended spa, private hot tub, a sauna, and Jacuzzi, as well as a saltwater swimming pool. And of course, The Caves is just minutes away from the famous 7-mile beach in Negril, so there is plenty to enjoy on or off the property.
5. Half Moon
The Half Moon hotel in Montego Bay has seen its fair share of world-renowned celebrities, and for a good reason. It’s not only a hotbed of luxury accommodations, but it’s also set on well-manicured grounds (all of 400 acres) and is bordered by two pristine stretches of white sand beach. On top of that, the 400-room hotel has everything on site honeymooners could want, including a whole shopping mall and five gourmet restaurants. Whether you’re the adventurous couple or the type that prefers just to relax and enjoy the good life, you will fit in just perfectly at this prestigious all-inclusive paradise. And with its vast expanse, your privacy and freedom to enjoy your honeymoon is guaranteed.
