When it comes to booking an all-inclusive resort, all things are not equal. Sure, websites will tout the beautiful beaches, gourmet restaurants and exclusive spa services that their property -- and theirs alone -- offers, but as anyone who has had personal experience with a sub-par resort can tell you, websites can be deceiving.
Booking a property sight unseen can be stressful, but not if Jewel Paradise Cove Beach Resort & Spa is the intended destination. This all-inclusive, adult-only, Jamaican resort was named among the Top 25 All-Inclusive Resorts-Caribbean in the TripAdvisor 2014 Travelers' Choice Awards and this year it received the Certificate of Excellence Award 2015 due to its outstanding reviews.
The oceanfront Jewel Paradise Cove Beach Resort & Spa recently received a complete redesign with a renewed emphasis on the health and wellness of its guests. Part and parcel of this renovation was a two-story, standalone wellness center. Situated directly on the beach, this brand-new center is home to the Radiant Spa and a state-of-the-art wellness facility, sporting a fitness room equipped with top-line cardio equipment and weights.
Classes include spinning, dancing and yoga, to name a few, along with the opportunity for tennis, water aerobics, beach volleyball and soccer, tag football, beach cricket and a variety of nature hikes. Guests don't need classes to stay fit either, what with the 10-station paracourse trail that winds throughout the property, meaning guests will never tire of a workout routine.
For those in search of more personal attention, a wide range of pampering wellness packages are on offer, ranging from the 20-minute "New You" package to the indulgent "One a Day" package, offering six days of wellness sessions and indulgent spa treatments. Complimentary green fees at the championship 18-hile Runaway Bay Golf Club are part of a guest's stay.
When it came to revitalizing guest accommodations, Jewel Paradise Cove spared no expense. Each of the properties 255 rooms and junior suites has been outfitted with luxurious bedding, modern furniture in keeping with the resort’s tropical location, designer bathrooms and private balconies and patios that encourage a closer communion with nature. Those traveling to celebrate a special occasion may want to avail themselves of one of the junior suites with butler service to turn their stay into a truly luxurious experience.
And when it comes time to do more than nourish their souls, six bars and on-site restaurants offer guests myriad choices from casual, beachside fare at Aquamarina Beach Grill to some of the Caribbean's finest gourmet cuisine at the white-glove service Platinum.
Guests can while away the hours with such amenities and activities as a shopping excursion to Margaritaville, a tour of Konoko Falls and an enhanced water sports activity center, featuring scuba diving, Hobie Cats, non-motorized water sports and complimentary sunset cruises, glass-bottom boat tours and reef snorkeling excursion. Guests can also avail themselves of the pool's concierge services, sample the signature cocktail of the day and the popular weekly Candlelit Dinner under the Stars.
No matter how guests choose to spend their days, their stay at Jewel Paradise Cove Beach Resort & Spa will be unforgettable.
