Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa
Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa is just a scenic coastal drive from Montego Bay’s Hip Strip, where colorful discotheques pulse with reggae music and serve up local rum well past midnight. The all-inclusive resort maintains a self-sufficient solitude on a much quieter patch of Caribbean beachfront. With more than a dozen bars and a gaming facility onsite, there’s still plenty of excitement after dark; by day, guests can go kayaking or sailing on the crystal-blue waters or take a dip in one of five massive swimming pools.
This all-inclusive package allows you to dine at a different buffet or international restaurant each night you’re at the resort. Bhogali offers a spicy selection of Indian cuisine, whereas Lotus House serves upscale Asian-fusion dishes. Soak up the Jamaican sun at the al fresco Blue Lagoon Restaurant, which overlooks the main pool. At the end of the day, you can retire to your junior suite and take a soak in a hydromassage tub. Head to the resort’s recently opened spa and wellness center for body scrubs and beachside massages.
Lucea, Jamaica: Bayside City with Three Waterfalls and Historic Architecture
Though it’s often overshadowed by its flashier neighbors—Montego Bay and Negril—Lucea boasts a scenic waterside setting, with green-carpeted hills and coves on three sides and the horseshoe-shaped Tom Pipers Bay on the other. White sandy beaches give way, further inland, to lush tropical jungles containing a handful of photogenic waterfalls.
Lucea’s city center is easy to navigate on foot. During a stroll through town, you’ll see centuries-old half-timber houses and historic sugar plantations. The old courthouse features limestone balustrades and a clock tower with an interesting story—it was mistakenly shipped to Lucea instead of St. Lucia nearly 200 years ago. It’s also worth taking a tour of Fort Charlotte, an 18th-century outpost with red-brick Georgian barracks, now-defunct cannons, and a bas relief of Beetle Bailey. Each week, the town market is abuzz with vendors selling fresh produce and handcrafted baubles.
