Everyone knows romance runs abound in Jamaica, so grab your flip-flops, hit the beach or the pool deck with your loved one on your arm. While you’re staying at our resort in Montego Bay, you’ll be inspired to really impress your partner and we have prepared a list of exciting date ideas just for you. Give any of these suggestions a whirl, and you’ll soon be experiencing paradise together like never before.
Located on the Hip Strip and only steps away from our hotel is the popular Marguerites Jamaica. Known for its “creative Caribbean seafood” prepared with local ingredients, the restaurant also offers fine dining on the water, providing an ambiance that summons romance the second you’re seated at your table. Treat your partner to some of the best dishes on the island, such as beef tartare, seared ahi tuna, pan scallops, and Tijuana shrimp. Perfectly pair your meal with the best wine selection in Montego Bay, and toast your love in style.
There’s just something about island life that makes you want to seek adventure and explore. If you want to test your luck and hit the slots, watch a game with fellow sports fans or enjoy a live show, look no further than the Coral Cliff Gaming Lounge. This game emporium features more than 120 slot machines and live entertainment that you can soak up while enjoying a taste of Jamaica and vibrant tropical cocktails. With something for everyone, this is an ideal place for couples that want to embrace excitement during their vacation.
If dinner and drinks is a little too cliché for you, you’ve got to experience Doctor’s Cave Beach. According to JamaicaHotelReview.com, this gem is the #1 beach in Montego Bay. And the best part of it is, our hotel is located right on Doctor’s Cave Beach with easy access and a dedicated area for hotel guests. Nothing says “exclusive” more than that. Grab a light lunch from the Ska Café to enjoy right on the waters’ edge before getting in on the adventurous action only Jamaica has to offer.
If you’re feeling especially daring, try out the ocean trampoline located in blue Caribbean waters and test out your cannonball skills. Then explore the best spots for snorkeling, go sailing or just soak up the sun. Plus, the beach is located right in the middle of Hip Strip, so you can go shopping or try out the local cuisine after a full day of ocean exploration. As you get to know the Hip Strip, there will be plenty of vendors around, trying to sell their items to you. This is customary practice in Jamaica, but don’t feel pressured to buy anything. If you’re not interested, simply give the vendor a firm “no thank you,” and they won’t ask again.
For a really unique experience, Rose Hall Great House covers all the bases. This venue is a popular site for weddings, because of its spectacular views of the coast and location on an expansive golf course. You can snap incredible photos from literally anywhere here. You can go for a romantic walk in the garden, grab a bite to eat, take a tour to learn the history of the house and live life at a slower pace to focus on the one you love most.
But if you’re the type of couple who loves a little scare, you can take a haunted night tour and hear chilling tales. Legend has it that Annie Palmer, the former mistress of the house, haunts the area. Originally from Haiti, Annie Palmer (later known as the White Witch of Rose Hall) was rumored to practice witchcraft and voodoo. When she moved to Jamaica, she married John Palmer and her violent temper was soon revealed. She eventually murdered John and two other husbands, before being murdered by a former lover in a strange twist of fate. Book a tour to decide for yourself if the tales of the White Witch of Rose Hall are true and you might catch a glimpse of her riding a horse through the grounds.
Expect an adult crowd as Rose Hall doesn’t recommend children under 10 during the night tours, and prepare yourself for some spooky excitement. Hold your partner close and enjoy the thrills!
