Hospitality attractions in Jamaica
Jamaica’s hospitality success stems from the wide variety of diverse attractions found there. Imagine a stay in which you can occupy an overwater bungalow in between excursions.
Those excursions include activities such as bamboo rafting on the Martha Brae River, as well as climbing Dunn’s River Falls. The latter is a 55-foot waterfall with terraces of cascading water along a 600-foot spring and emptying into the sea.
Apart from its potential for adventures in nature, Jamaica is known the world over for its pristine white sand beaches.
Where to stay in Jamaica
Another driving factor of Jamaica’s hospitality success is the high quality of the hotels and resorts there.
Of course, there is the stock comfort inherent to places like Sandals Jamaica. More enticingly, however, are places like Half Moon Bay Resort, which is a property inspired by the lush, tropical gardens which surround it.
That property also features the Fern Tree Spa, a sanctuary nestled between rolling hills which offers its guests centuries-old healing traditions born within the country.
That spa spans 68,400-square feet, making it one of the biggest in the entire Caribbean.
