Luxurious Romantic Getaway Destination

Where is this magical, paradise-like place, you ask?

Montego Bay, Jamaica!

If you follow us on social media, you might have already gotten a tiny sneak peek at the stunning beauty Jamaica has to offer. I recently got to attend a blogger retreat in Montego Bay and it was seriously the PERFECT escape from real life.  I’m not even exaggerating when I say that this place is magical. It was honestly like a dream. I took LOTS of pictures to show you guys because it’s one of those places that you have to see to believe, and I couldn’t wait to tell you all about it!

If you’re in need of a couple’s getaway- I HIGHLY recommend this one!

It would make the perfect babymoon, second honeymoon, or anniversary trip. And really- who couldn’t use a romantic, Caribbean getaway?!

Life gets crazy, our schedules get busy, and it’s easy for your marriage to take a backseat to parenting and paying bills and cleaning the house and cooking meals and…well… real life! That’s why it’s important to schedule time with just the two of you to get away from it all and remember why you fell in love in the first place. Going on this trip was just what I needed to de-stress and reset. It was the first time that I have REALLY relaxed in a REALLY long time. If you’re the same way and in serious need of some alone time, relaxation, and a little vitamin sea, it’s time to plan a trip to…

The Perfect All-Inclusive Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica

The Perfect All-Inclusive Resort in Montego Bay Jamaica

We stayed at the most beautiful, luxurious resort in Montego Bay and I’m going to give you the scoop on why it’s the perfect place for your next Caribbean vacay! Because, don’t you think…

You Should Be HERE

romantic-couples-getaway

Yeah, I thought so too! Those two chairs were made for you! But before you start planning your romantic getaway, let me share all the deets with you…

We stayed at two luxurious, adjoining resorts- Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall and Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall. I highly recommend both, but if you’re looking for a kid-free zone, the Hyatt Zilara property is adults-only. Both properties have stunning views everywhere you turn. {I’ve included lots of pictures that I took to show you just how gorgeous the resort is, but you should totally check out the amazing aerial shots on their website too! They capture the beauty of Montego Bay so perfectly. You can even search the hashtags #HyattZivaRoseHall and #HyattZilaraRoseHall on social media too and browse through lots of guest photos. Warning: browsing these photos will have you booking your own vacation before you know what’s happening.} Okay, now onto the good stuff.

5 Reasons Why You Need a Romantic Getaway to Montego Bay

I’m guessing you don’t need much convincing, but trust me when I say- it’s even better than you think!

1.  The Food

This may be the best part! {At least, if you love food as much as I do.} This resort is all-inclusive! Did you catch that?! ALL-INCLUSIVE! ALL the food and drinks, including room service, are included with your stay! And did I mention that room service is available 24 hours a day? The dining options vary from fancy restaurants to casual buffets, a grab and go cafe, and even a swim up pool bar. That means you can sleep in and order hot coconut pancakes from room service to enjoy on your private balcony…

OR walk down to the buffet and enjoy your breakfast outside while enjoying the breath-taking ocean view. {Or do what I did and pick a different dining option each morning!}

One thing is certain though, you definitely need to stop by Barefoot JerkZ along the beach shore for lunch…

to try out the best jerk chicken! {Your trip to Jamaica isn’t complete without it.}

There are so many different dining options it’s almost impossible to try them all, but I thoroughly enjoyed each one I tried. The food was always delicious and the service was always impeccable. {Oh, and make sure you try a coconut bar at BiteZ Deli & Cafe! Trust me!}

2.  The Views

If the limitless food and drinks didn’t do it for you, check out these views! Everywhere you turn there’s turquoise water, yellow sunshine, and swaying green palm trees. It really is paradise. You’re completely surrounded by beauty everywhere you go. I couldn’t put my camera down the whole time I was there. See for yourself…

3.  The Relaxation

If you are looking for a relaxing, stress-free vacation- THIS is the place! One of the most common phrases I heard in Jamaica was “No problem!” The Jamaican way truly is a care-free way. No worries! Every where you turn there are places for lounging, reclining, and unwinding. The toughest part of the day is deciding if you want to reserve a cabana by the pool, lounge on a beach chair by the ocean waves, or curl up to read a book on a swinging chair. Oh, and did I mention the spa?! Indulge in a hot stone massage or book a couples massage on the beach.

4.  The Rooms

And then there’s the rooms. Oh, the rooms! It’s luxurious living to say the least. All of the rooms feature furnished private terraces with views of the resort pool, gardens, or the Caribbean Sea. Here’s the stunning view from my room…

There are even Swim Up Rooms which include access to a private pool. And if you really want to splurge, update to a Butler Suite and get your own personal butler! {Yes, that’s a thing!} No matter which room you book, you’ll get amazing service and accommodations. Personally, my favorite part was the giant bathtub. Honestly, it’s the only reason I wanted to leave the beach at night. There’s nothing like ending your day with a nice, long soak in the tub.

And I don’t know what those pillow were made out of but they were heavenly! Best sleep I’ve had in a long time.

At turn down service they even include the schedule of events for the next day. Basically, the entire time they treat you like royalty.

5.  The Memories

This is a magical place for making memories. There’s so much to see and so much to do! The resort offers lots of activities and entertainment on-site. The fire dancing and aquatics show was a highlight of our trip.

If you enjoy watersports, you can rent a kayak or a catamaran or get a closer look at the sea life  by going snorkeling. They also have fitness classes, dance lessons, and even two different golf courses.

Or, if you’re looking to get out and explore, you can go to the concierge desk to plan day trips and excursions. You’ll find a variety of options there from zip lining to swimming with dolphins. Ever wanted to ride a horse along the beach? You can do that too! If you want to try something truly unique, I recommend visiting the Luminous Lagoon on a night cruise. Experience the natural wonder of water glowing all around you.

Honestly though, I was perfectly content to stay at the resort and enjoy the beach and pool {and limitless drinks, of course}.

They have a saying in Jamaica- “If this is your first time here, welcome to paradise. If you’ve been here before, welcome home!” I love it because it’s so true. The people there have a way of making you feel totally at home. It only took me a minute to fall totally in love with Jamaica. And I can’t wait to visit again. {Seriously, take me back!}

Ready to book your Jamaican getaway? Here are some…

TRAVEL TIPS

  • Make sure you allow plenty of time to get passports if you don’t have them already!
  • When planning your airline travel, check out Fun Jet Vacations to book the most direct route to Montego Bay. They seriously made traveling and planning a total breeze for me! {And they often have sales.}
  • For international flights, they recommend arriving at the airport 2-3 hours early.
  • Make sure to turn your phone on airplane mode when you land in Jamaica so you’re not charged with international fees. {Don’t worry, Wifi is complimentary at the resort and you can communicate with family and friends back home through FaceTime or the WhatsApp app.}
  • Once you arrive in Montego Bay, proceed past baggage claim and customs into the main hub of the airport. Hyatt Ziva and Zilara have their own lounge. You can check in and enjoy a complimentary, cold beverage while you wait for your quick shuttle to the hotel.
  • Once you arrive at the resort, check in at the front desk and they’ll get you set up with the complimentary Wifi, event schedule, and everything you need!

  1. It would be fabulous to win a vacation gift like this. We SOOOOO need one. Getting away is not something we’ve been able to do for quite awhile. I would like to visit Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall or Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos.
