Tucked on a headland on the eastern edge of Ocho Rios, this adults-only all-inclusive has two beaches (the more secluded one, which also has a pool and bar, is reserved for sunbathing in the buff), cliffside hammocks, and plenty of secluded paths wending around its 35 acres of gardens, forest, streams, and ponds. The accommodations in the pink clifftop buildings that are frosted with white balconies are breezy and comfortably modern. For ultimate romance, there’s also the Hibiscus Cottage on the property’s eastern edge, where there's a private outdoor infinity-edge whirpool and a tub for two.
The resort’s all-inclusive menu extends beyond the basics. You automatically get meals at the five restaurants, premium drinks at the half-dozen bars, water sports equipment covering complimentary scuba diving, tennis lessons, sailing, and glass-bottom boat rides, golf greens fees (and transfers), shopping excursions, trips to Dunn’s River Falls, and more.
