Luxe Jamaica Holidays

Soft white sand beaches, glistening waters and the ultimate take-it-easy vibe, Jamaica makes a great choice for those seeking great company, delicious food and picture-perfect backdrops. From breathtaking sunrises and sunsets in Negril to world-famous waterfalls in Ocho Rios, you can do as much or as little as you want on this care-free island.

With an influential culture with a long-held connection to its African roots that spans continents Jamaica is a small island that punches above its weight; with world renowned cuisine, music and sport stars it is hard to ignore this extraordinary Caribbean nation. When you add this captivating culture to the island’s natural wonders which include white-sand beaches, verdant mountain slopes and tumbling waterfalls you get an unforgettable holiday destination.

Jamaica’s second city, after the capital Kingston, is the island’s tourism capital Montego Bay which is affectionately called MoBay by its welcoming and hospitable residents. Once a port where ships bound for Britain were loaded with supplies of sugar, Montego Bay is now a bustling city fringed by bays boasting talcum white sands and the shimmering waters of the Montego Bay Marine Park. From the lively main strip of Gloucester Avenue, lined with bars, restaurants, food stands and shops to the magnificent plantation houses that take transport you back to the colonial times of old, there are myriad attractions and activities on offer in the city and its surroundings.

Located in the ‘garden parish’ of St Ann on Jamaica’s north coast is the resort town of Ochos Rios. The name was derived from a corruption of the Spanish ‘Las Chorreras’ which translates to ‘the waterfalls’, no doubt referring to the nearby Dunns River Falls. This beautiful landmark, and the jewel in Jamaica’s crown, is a popular spot, attracting visitors who come to climb up the terraced stone steps as the water descends and swim in the refreshing pools that sit in dappled shade. The town itself boasts a sweeping white-sand bay lapped by crystal clear waters which play host to an array of vibrant marine life.

GoldenEye - Mr & Mrs Smith (More Information & Booking)

Boutique island getaway GoldenEye’s name is not a coincidence; this idyllic cluster of whitewashed cottages and suites on Jamaica’s Oracabessa Bay is indeed the inspiration for the Brosnan Bond vehicle. But this is no gimmick either: Ian Fleming penned all 14 of his James Bond novels in his villa, now the hotel’s centrepiece. He may not have had access to the swim-up hillside spa, watersports area or treetop restaurant, but the setting alone was enough to keep him here – these days, there’s no excuse to leave.

The delightful Negril Beach has often found itself on prestigious lists that declare it to be one of the world’s finest beaches. The resort town boasts a laid-back vibe, striking cliffs from which daring souls leap, azure blue seas and a steady pace of life that lends itself perfectly to a Caribbean beach escape. The sunsets that can be witnessed from Negril’s beach and cliffs are legendary and once darkness prevails the town and beach come alive with the nation’s reggae rhythms.

Couples Negril - Kuoni (More Information & Booking)

As the name would suggest the focus at Couples Negril is firmly on spending quality time together in a fun, friendly and exotic setting. Activities here are geared towards reconnecting... think couples’ massages under a beachfront palapa, dining on the beach under the stars, wandering barefoot along the sands or paddleboarding or kayaking across the clear and sheltered waters of the bay. As well as providing plenty of opportunities for ‘us time’, there’s also a lively atmosphere here, with day and evening entertainment on offer daily, as well as a wide selection of activities including scuba diving, pool and beach volleyball and watersports.
