Our 5 Favourite Luxury Hotels in Jamaica

Beautiful, lively, sunny Jamaica has a thrilling secret. Beyond its tropical shores and rum-fuelled parties is a realm of deep tissue massages, elegant dining and limitless prestige. Yet your luxury Jamaica holiday doesn’t need to break the bank, especially if you consider some of our favourite deals.

Every corner of this Caribbean island hides a superb escape begging to be explored. Jamaica is somewhere to be pampered, to spoil yourself and to sip cocktails by the shore while being doted on by smiling, well-presented assistants. Read on to find out all about our five recommended luxury hotels in Jamaica.

Sensatori Resort Jamaica

This crisp white resort rests on the sunkissed shores of Negril‘s Seven Mile Beach. And while that promises plenty of shoreline to stretch on, the luxurious Sensatori Resort Jamaica offers so much more.

Thanks to the hotel’s west coast location, you can expect to wind down on your balcony to some stunning sunsets. Rooms here are airy and spacious, with adults-only options that are secluded in their own part of the hotel complex to conceal you from other guests.

Push the boat out further, and you’re sitting pretty in the Premium Area Suites. Big rooms with big windows are just the start here, because you’re also privy to private beach and pool access, as well as having your whims attended to by a personal butler.

Mealtimes here are something to savour. Over at the Beach House, world cuisine is served up with the catch of the day, all with sublime views of the surrounding shore. You can also dine on the terrace at the traditional Caribbean diner, or head to the big central restaurant for show cooking.

Couples Tower Isle

As far as luxury goes in Ocho Rios, it doesn’t come much more flash than a hotel with its own little island. Yet at Couples Tower Isle – the adults-only getaway with style – that’s just the start.

Suite rooms here come with sea views as standard, and that’s before you get to the private beach access. An award-winning spa helps nourish and soothe away any troubles that might have stowed away in your baggage getting here, and dining runs around the world to offer Asian, Mediterranean and classic Caribbean fare.

If all that good eating fills you with energy, you’re in luck. Daytime activities lean heavily towards watersports in that gorgeous Caribbean Sea, with kayaking and windsurfing on offer, or boat trips are a more sedate affair. By nightfall the resort’s bars brim with steel drum and calypso bands, and check out the al fresco film nights too.

Secrets St James Montego Bay

Stunning views are the norm at Secrets St James Montego Bay. With a Montego Bay peninsula all of its own, privacy is a given here, as well as beachfront access that sees Caribbean sands on your doorstep.

The huge central pool competes for your attention against the tropical sea, and the spas promise to rejuvenate and revitalise with everything from skin treatments to massage therapies. Junior Suites are the standard room option at this adults-only resort, so you’ll be staying in style even if you book at the lower end of the budget spectrum.

A mouthwatering range of restaurants awaits here, which can be as laid-back as you like if you’re in the mood for a poolside barbecue and grill, or some seafood by the shore. Yet when it’s time to make a statement at dinnertime, there’s also lots to choose from. You could dine on French cuisine or traditional Italian dishes, in surroundings styled like the locales they come from. Or you could head to the World Cafe for meals from every corner of the world.

Couples Sans Souci

Tucked atop a rocky outcrop and hidden from the world by tropical trees, this is an opulent hideaway in every sense. Couples Sans Souci boasts four pools as part of its adults-only offering, as well as the beautiful beaches of Ocho Rios a sublime stroll away.

Thanks to a natural mineral spring bubbling beneath the resort, the chance for a bathing experience that nourishes the skin is yours. Hammocks are tastefully tucked among the gardens for you to hide away in, assuming the clean and open room you’re staying in isn’t enough of a feast for the senses.

And talking of feasting, dining is done with panache at Couples Sans Souci. The fusion restaurant, Casanova, takes world dishes and gives them Caribbean twists of spice and salsa. Beachside grills serve steaks and seafood aplenty, while Palazzina is a proud keeper of dishes from every culture on Earth.

Excellence Oyster Bay

This resort is set to be the pride of Montego Bay following its summer 2018 launch. Excellence Oyster Bay is located on a serene corner of Montego Bay’s beaches, and thanks to this thoughtful planning, panoramic ocean views are easily had from almost every window in the resort.

And your room’s windows are just the start. Junior Suites booked at this hotel feature coffee machines, flat screen TVs, private pool and beach access and whirlpool baths. Step up to the plate for the Excellence Club rooms, and you can add personal check-in and check-out services, and access to a private bar to the mix.

In terms of pampering, the trio of pools prove deep and inviting, but you can just as easily surrender to the shiatsu massages and cacao body wrap treatments. If you prefer to stay active, you can instead plump for some aerobics, bicycle hire or volleyball.

Jamaica’s teeming with luxury holidays, but these are definitely five of the best.
