Jamaica is the ‘land of wood and water’ — but when you add sun, sand, mountains and magical vibes into the mix it’s also one of the world’s most romantic locations.
So it’s no wonder that Jamdown’s a dream honeymoon spot for many newlyweds.
But choosing the right hotel can be a challenge.
So here are four awesome Jamaican honeymoon hotspots that set the right tone for a lifetime of wedded bliss.
Jakes, Treasure Beach
Jakes is a beautiful bohemian hotel nestled in the stunning scenery of Treasure Beach in St Elizabeth parish.
Legend has it that a Scottish ship wrecked off the coast in the 17th Century and the surviving sailors married local Jamaican women — hence the ravishing red hair and blue/green eyes of the current population.
A range of bespoke villas and cottages allow you to spend as much solo time with your new spouse as you desire.
But you can mingle with fellow guests at yoga or beach barbecues if you want to mix things up a little.
This is the perfect pick for a cool couple who want to unwind completely.
Zion Country, Portland
This stunning eco-lodge is the ideal hideaway for any couple who really want to get back to basics amidst stunning natural scenery.
The pretty painted cabins provide just enough privacy and you can chill out watching the manatees that visit the private beach below.
But in-house dining is communal, so expect to meet a host of interesting adventurers — from distance learning students studying UK online degree courses to bold backpackers fascinated by the unique fauna and flora of the region.
If you want to spend your honeymoon in an Ewok-style village in a tropical rainforest, take a trip to Zion Country.
The Caves, Negril
Negril straddles the border of Westmoreland and Hanover parishes and its breath-taking Seven Mile Beach oozes sensuality.
The Caves hotel is owned by former Island Records boss Chris Blackwell and is literally carved into the cliffside.
Each suite is completely unique, calm and cosy.
And delicious candlelit dinners looking through the natural rock windows to the sea below really are something special.
There’s an onsite luxury spa to help you iron out the creases of the rat race and water sport activities like kayaking and snorkelling are available for those who yearn for action.
This spot is highly recommended for a honeymoon with a difference.
Strawberry Hill, St Andrew
If you want a luxury hilltop location that’s a stone’s throw from the vivacious vibes of Kingston then look no further than Strawberry Hill.
This resort set high in the Blue Mountains boasts beautiful views of Jamaica’s capital city, private cottages, tropical gardens and an infinity pool.
And you can arrive in style with a helicopter transfer straight from Norman Manley airport — why bother waiting for a taxi?
This is a great spot for a couple who want to dance their nights away in Jamaica’s hottest clubs then return to the lap of luxury each evening.
These four awesome Jamaican honeymoon hotspots allow any couple to relax, reflect and revive themselves before returning home.
