This month’s pick is: Coyaba Beach Resort and Club, Montego Bay, Jamaica
Everything is always “Irie” in Jamaica, which is Jamaican for ‘everything is good’ and it sure is, from the weather and the food to the warm hospitality of the locals. So let’s set the scene… White sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, beautiful scenery, and let’s not forget the soft mellow tones of reggae, you know what we’re taking about. You won’t be short of things to do too, like, horse riding on the beach, climbing the famous Dunns River Falls or leisurely rafting down the Martha Brae River.
Coyaba Beach Resort & Club is a small and friendly hotel right on the beach, and not too far from Jamaica’s second biggest city Montego Bay. This really is a get away from it all hotel, where you can spend your days and nights recharging your batteries.
Time for Fun
When it’s time to cool off, take a dip in the pool overlooking the hotels private beach, which also plays host to some free watersports, or maybe you fancy a game of tennis. Children on the other hand can tear off some energy in their very own playground. Treat yourself to a spa day, in a fabulous location right on the beach.
Time for Indulgence
Even though this is a small and intimate hotel, it still serves up 3 restaurants, The Vineyard Caribbean Restaurant, Docks Bar & Grill, and Polo Grounds Bar, all dishing up a good variety of food, from formal to less formal.
