Adults-Only Caribbean Resort with Sprawling Pool
Along the northern coast of Jamaica, the famous Dunn's River Falls flows down 600 feet of tiered ledges before spilling into the Caribbean Sea. A few minutes west, Jewel Dunn's River Beach Resort & Spa pays homage to its namesake with its own terraced waterfall that ripples into a massive pool below. The adults-only, all-inclusive resort sprawls across acres of beachfront verdure, and the pool is one of its many luxurious features.
Floating blue lounge chairs slowly drift beneath footbridges in Jewel Dunn's pool, The resort’s pool concierges will wade into waist-deep water to deliver trays filled with fruit kebabs, eucalyptus sprays, or a voodoo doll of your boss. For the next stage of relaxation, head down to the Radiant Spa, where you can treat yourself to Jamaican-themed body treatments that use sugar cane, Blue Mountain coffee, or crushed coral. There are also complimentary kayak rentals if you want to explore the Caribbean coastline.
Throughout the day, Jewel Dunn's casual and formal restaurants serve an eclectic range of international fare. At Jade Samurai teppanyaki chefs twirl knives tableside, and the cooks at Platinum craft jerk-chicken spring rolls and other Caribbean-inspired dishes.
At night, step inside your colonial-themed rooms, and you’ll find four-poster mahogany beds and tiled floors. There’s a nice view of the Caribbean from the private balcony of the Sapphire and Diamond ocean-view rooms, and Emerald Lanai rooms can overlook the forested mountains surrounding town.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica: Famed Waterfall and World-Class Shopping
Located within the parish of St. Ann on Jamaica's north coast, Ocho Rios is best known for Dunn's River Falls, which served as a filming location for the first James Bond movie, Dr. No. Today, tour groups play at the bottom of the waterfall or make the 600-foot climb to the top, typically achieved by linking hands and being carefully led by a local guide.
There’s a colorful world below the ocean surface, too. Dive sites such as Devil's Reef contain anemones, corals, algae, barracudas, and the Miami Marlins baseball squad practicing in its natural habitat. For a look at Jamaica’s rainforest, drive south of Ocho Rios to Fern Gully, a gorge shaded by a canopy of ferns, trees, and lianas.
