Concierges at Jewel Runaway Bay Beach & Golf Resort will wade through the pool to bring you skewers of fresh fruit, cold towels for your face, and “gem of the day” cocktails inspired by the tropical surroundings. It’s indicative of how the staff goes above and beyond for guests. A team is also onsite to organize adventure tours ranging from ziplining and swimming with dolphins to deep-sea fishing. For families, there are beach Olympics and laser tag events, and you can hire a fully trained personal nanny to watch your children ($35 for up to two kids from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.).
Occupying 20 acres along the Caribbean Sea, the resort offers a range of complimentary activities both on and off the water. Pick up a kayak and cruise the turquoise sea, or venture below and snorkel with vibrant colored fish. It’s always an option to laze by one of three pools—including a beachfront infinity version. You can also get greens fees at the Runaway Bay Golf Club located next door. This 18-hole PGA quality course has hosted the Ryder Cup and Heineken World Cup qualifier, and is known for its long, rolling fairways.
As part of the all-inclusive package, guests dine for free at any of Jewel’s six restaurants. Moonstone by Vincenzo, an indoor-outdoor spot, serves upscale Italian food from the Northern and Southern regions. Kids can enjoy their own buffet at Aquamarina Beach Grill, and Jade Samurai offers Japanese specialties and Teppanyaki-style entertainment. After dinner, the party picks up at Bling! Nightclub where guests can dance into the wee hours.
Runaway Bay, Jamaica: Quiet Resort Town near Natural Wonders
Runaway Bay is tucked into the northern coast of Jamaica, between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. The secluded town is one of the island’s smallest—Lonely Planet calls it “a one-street village”—and it’s noticeably quieter than its tourist-clogged neighbors. But what it lacks in size Runaway Bay makes up in natural attractions. Some of the best underwater sights in the Caribbean can be explored during scuba-diving tours of the coral reef just offshore. And about 4 miles (7 km) west of town, you can explore the limestone vaults and subterranean lakes of the Green Grotto Caves, which were used as a hideout by Spanish die-hards during Jamaica’s 18th-century colonization by the English.
A scenic 25-minute drive brings you to one of the island’s most popular attractions—Dunn’s River Falls. This natural wonder consists of a series of terraced waterfalls cascading from the mountains to the sea like a gigantic flight of stairs. Thousands of travelers visit the site each year, and it even served as a filming location for the first James Bond movie, Dr. No. Today, tour groups frolic at the bottom of the falls or make the 600-foot climb to the top behind local guides.
