We love Jamaica. Sure, it has something to do with the luscious fresh lobster and constant Bob Marley pumping from every speaker in every shanty town. It also has something to do with the Jerk Chicken and Mrs. Brown’s mushroom stand (yes, those kind of mushrooms). We also love Jamaica because her beaches are some of the finest around. From the soft powder white sands to plunging into crystal blue waters from atop the tall cliffs, you can live your vacation just like a scene from your own personal version of Cocktail.
So, when we came across this Fall special, we started to daydream about our youth and the time we spent in Montego Bay and Negril as a college student seeing this historic reggae country for the very first time.
Half Moon, a luxury property in Montego Bay, is offering some deeply discounted rates that are reason enough to hitch a flight and party (or veg on the aforementioned powder white sand). Boasting barefoot elegance and a gracious staff, Half Moon offers an ample list of “onlys” on the island: it is the only resort in Jamaica with its own Dolphin Lagoon, an on-site equestrian center, the private Half Moon Golf Academy and 13 tennis courts for day and night play. Plus, with the addition of the world-class Fern Tree, the Spa at Half Moon it is the only resort in Jamaica to offer spa-goers the expertise of a Spa Elder along with six luxurious beachfront spa suites. So check it out and tell ’em we sent you.
