MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica – As part of our coverage of Jamaica’s recently concluded Wish You Were Here Education Series, Travel Agent had the opportunity to visit one of the country’s newest resorts, The Jewel Dunn’s River Beach Resort & Spa.
This 250-room resort opened in early September and is perfect for couples. Don’t necessarily rule out families, but guests need to be at least 18 years of age.
Located five miles west of Ocho Rios, the resort is one hour and 15 minutes from the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay.
It is equipped with a full service European Spa, a nine-hole golf course, six bars, two pools and two swim-up bars. Other amenities include a gift shop; a 24-hour, open-air fitness center; pool tables, volleyball and tennis courts and more.
It is located on 25 acres and the rooms are split into eight different categories. The best room here, we thought, was the Honeymoon Haven One Bedroom Oceanfront Suite. This 855-square-foot room comes with a large balcony and living area, butler service, a wet bar with top shelf liquor, a whirlpool tub and a walk-in closets.
At a close second is the 827-square-foot One Bedroom Ocean View Suite, which includes two smaller balconies, a living area, butler service, a wet bar, a whirlpool tub and walk in closets.
