Upscale All-Inclusive Resort with Private Island
Just off Jamaica’s northern shore, there’s an island so small it doesn’t show up on the map. This is Tower Isle, the private property of Couples Tower Isle, an all-inclusive, adults-only resort set on 19 acres of shorefront property back on the mainland. On little Tower Isle, couples sip drinks at the bar and sunbathe au naturel, with no children or crowds of beach-goers around to disturb the romantic atmosphere.
The resort claims that its all-inclusive package has more inclusions than most Caribbean resorts, and you'd be hard-pressed to disprove that claim. All meals, snacks, and drinks (both domestic and premium) are included during your stay, and you have six different onsite restaurants to choose from. Options range from vegetarian to Caribbean fusion. Bartenders, meanwhile, shake up fruity tropical cocktails at four unique lounges that include a lively piano bar.
Also included in your stay are daily glass-bottom-boat tours, snorkeling and scuba excursions,catamaran cruises, shopping trips, and a free shuttle to Jamaica’s Island Village, where you can dance the night away at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville. Three swimming pools and the resort’s private beach provide prime space to relax. Unlimited golf and complimentary tennis lessons, along with a slew of planned activities, round out the daily roster.
At night, you'll retire to a spacious deluxe ocean room, where a large balcony or patio offers sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea. A complimentary minibar comes stocked with alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages and is replenished daily. Room service is also included, so you can shut out the outside world entirely, if you're so inclined.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica: Famed Waterfall and World-Class Shopping
Located in the parish of St. Ann in Jamaica, 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, free tour groups leaving daily from the resort frolic 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.
Just offshore, a colorful world lies below the ocean surface. Dive sites such as Devil's Reef contain anemones, coral, 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 scenic gorge shaded by a canopy of ferns, trees, and lianas.
