Built in the glamorous 1950’s, during a time characterized by extraordinary old-world luxury, this serene sanctuary still maintains a stellar reputation as one of Jamaica’s most exquisite resort-inns. Royal Plantation, a resort created exclusively for discerning adults, sits on a bluff soaring 25 feet above the shimmering Caribbean, granting each and every one of its 74 sumptuous suites heart-stopping views of the ocean. Bask blissfully on our spectacular twin beaches—glorious golden-sand coves where you can spend countless hours soaking in the sunshine and sipping on "mangosas," delivered ice-cold and sparkling to your hands by unobtrusive beach butlers.
The beaches in Jamaica are truly spectacular, from secluded private coves to Negril's world-renowned seven-mile stretch of powdery white sand, all looking out onto the ultra-clear, turquoise waters of the Caribbean. So a couple could be forgiven for spending their entire heavenly Royal Plantation vacation basking in the seductive warmth of the ever-present sunshine, while sipping exotic tropical drinks and gazing out at the endless expanse of aquamarine sea. But, truly, Jamaica is so much more than just a beach.
Located roughly in the center of Jamaica's North Coast, Ocho Rios lays claim to an incredible variety of natural and manmade bounty. Characterized by luxuriant greenery, mountains that soar down to meet stunning beaches, plus the world-renowned, Dunn's River Falls, this town virtually pulsates with an energy all its own. It even boasts Fern Gully, a winding five-mile shallow canyon carved out by a long-dried-up river, that now hosts over 500 species of ferns and some tropical flora that you would be hard-pressed to find outside of a rainforest. Having explored the majesty of Mother Nature, don't forget to take in all the hustle and bustle of Ocho Rios' crafts market, duty-free shops and local color.
