Runway Bay Jamaica

'I know the combination of great sports, wellness activties with Gems staff to host us will be popular.' Colum - Friendship Travel MD

Jamaica is a superb holiday destination with a succession of wonderful beaches lapped by the gentle Caribbean, and a tropical interior bursting with natural wonders. The island is a real melting pot of cultures reflecting its Spanish and British colonial past, while Bob Marley’s reggae and today’s rappers mean Jamaica is never quiet!

Jewel Paradise Cove Beach Resort & Spa 

The hotel re-opened after a total renovation in autumn 2013 and is now an adults-only resort with the emphasis on health and happiness – with plenty of opportunities to maintain or improve your fitness – with friendly all-inclusive service from the ‘Gems’ guest services team, who act as our local Hosts.

The beachfront resort has three ‘epic’ pools for luxurious sunning, and a pool concierge service (spritz of cool water Ma’am?).  Once a week you can even watch a ‘dive-in’ movie while floating in the pool.

There is a host of dining options (with no all-inclusive restrictions): the Aquamarina Beach Grill serves up great burgers and wraps; there are Italian and Asian restaurants and The Golden Sabre is the place to go for fresh and creative sushi.  There’s even white-glove service if you fancy sophisticated dining, and one of the restaurants always has a singles-only table for dinner every night, hosted by one of the great Gems team.

There is a choice of bars including an ocean-front swim-up pool bar, serving exotic cocktails and juices, and there’s a different ‘gem of the day’ speciality drink to try every day!

Our rooms, each with a private balcony overlooking the gardens, feature dark-wood furniture with crisp white linens: the bed is either a king-sized or two doubles for you to choose from!  The bathroom may have a shower or full bath.

The Gems team makes sure there is always fun stuff to do, from nature walks and volleyball games to beach cricket and theme nights.

Golfers can take advantage of free green fees at the PGA-quality 18-holes at Runaway Bay Golf Club (charges for club and caddie hire) while there’s a good range of non-motorised watersports on the beach, including glass-bottom boat trips, plus (at extra charge) opportunities to water-ski, snorkel and scuba.

The excellent Radiant Spa offers an aerobics studio, cardiovascular machines, weights and cybex equipment – the use of which is included in your holiday package.  Treatments are at extra cost, but do explore the opportunities for wellness and pampering while you’re here: there’s everything from total body massages to hair braiding!
