Luxury Holidays in Jamaica
Rivers and waterfalls rush through jungle-clad mountains and forests to miles of sandy beaches, where huts sell lip-smaking ackee, jerk chicken and saltfish to reggae beats. Jamaica has huge personality and something to appeal to everybody from hip hangouts to luxury family beach resorts and some of our favourite five star, boutique hotels.
Jamaica’s most vibrant parish boasts five championship golf courses (with breathtaking views), the historic town of Falmouth and the beautiful Great River, best appreciated from a bamboo raft. Some of our favourite luxury family beach resorts are here, too. Round Hill Hotel & Villas is one of them!
Lush and tropical, the countryside outside Ocho Rios is known as the ‘garden parish’ and is well worth exploring, not least to see the spectacular Dunn’s River Falls. Then head back to the sea and to Dolphin Cove to swim with a family of bottle-nosed dolphins.
Hike through thick forest and coffee plantations alongside rushing streams and waterfalls in Jamaica’s famed mountain range.
Tourism is still fairly new to Jamaica’s southwest coast, lending it a laid-back atmosphere and undeveloped beaches. Treasure Beach, a secluded fishing village, is our pick of the bunch.
This is a place that has perfected the art of relaxation. Azure waters lapping white sandy beaches and craggy cliff faces encourage you to do little more than kick back and enjoy the fabulous sunsets. If you do get off the sunlounger, there’s great snorkelling and diving here, too. Take a look at The Caves.
