When To Travel
All of the holidays we create are completely tailor-made to you
Day 1: Arrive in Jamaica
Once you've landed in sunny Jamaica and picked up your bags, one of our team on the ground will meet you for the half-hour private transfer to your delightful hotel.
When you arrive there will be time for a quick dip in the pool before bed (for the children) and a couple of rum punches (for the adults).
To make sure that you and your brood are as comfortable as possible during your stay, we've booked your into a spacious two-bedroom villa where you can create a home-from-home for the week.
Day 2: Messing About in Boats
We imagine you'll be up with the larks this morning, so we've arranged an early breakfast followed by a morning learning to sail. Depending on your ability - and always making sure the youngest members of the group can keep up - you will head out with instructors in Hobie Cat catamarans.
Once you've learnt your port from your starboard and tacking from jibing, you will split up into teams for a race back to the shore and lunch. This afternoon we recommend getting the lie of the land, checking out the lovely sandy beach and infinity pool before soaking up some sun.
Days 3–6: Family Fun in the Sun
The fun continues for the next few days, with parents and children alike able to make use of the hotel's watersports facilities, including glass-bottomed boat tours, kayaking and pedal boating, and snorkelling and waterskiing for older children. When the children need some downtime (and the parents some grown up time), the resort has two excellent kids' clubs designed for three to six and seven-plus year olds respectively. Younger children can enjoy nature walks, arts and crafts, watersports and even fun reggae music classes, while their older siblings can enjoy everything from talent shows to basket weaving and basketball.
For a bit of cultural context, and to explore more of this fascinating island, we can arrange private plantation house tours or more active excursions such as zip-lining. Another great way to absorb a bit of Jamaican culture is to eat out, and our local Concierge can recommend and book the best local restaurant, where the children can experience jerk chicken, the local delicacy, albeit a less spicy version than for the parents!
Day 7: Home Time
Today is your last day in Jamaica, so soak up those precious last moments of salty sea air and sunshine before you take your private transfer to the airport for your journey home.
