Built in the glamorous 1950s, and with a sense of old-world luxury, the serene sanctuary of the Sandals Royal Plantation, Ocho Rios still maintains a reputation as one of Jamaica's most exquisite resort-inns. It sits on a bluff 25ft above the Caribbean, giving each and every one of its 74 sumptuous suites ocean views. Bask on spectacular twin beaches, relax, and sip on 'mangosas' delivered by beach butlers.
This resort has a three-bedroom private villa and seven additional categories of suites within the main hotel. Recently renovated, all suites boast panoramic ocean views and feature custom-crafted mahogany furniture, king-size beds, air conditioning, ceiling fans, in-room bars, sitting and dining areas, and private marble baths and showers. All rooms come with Butler Service.
Pamper yourself with butler service on the pristine white-sand beaches, or indulge in a treatment at the 5 star Diamond Spa. When you're feeling more active, try out a range of water sports, from kayaking and sailing to snorkelling and diving, or have a game of tennis and a round of golf.
There are 5 gourmet restaurants to choose from each with a unique atmosphere and a menu and wine list to match. Le Papillon serves meat and seafood dishes, while The Terrace offers fine dining under the stars with authentic Jamaican and Mediterranean cuisine. A tradtional British pub also serves up favourites such as bangers and mash.The Royal Café serves light fare on the beach, and the resort also features Jamaica's only Caviar and Champagne Bar.
