Best Hotels for Destination Weddings in Jamaica(43 of 44)

 The bar by the ocean is a lovely spot to relax.
The Rockhouse is one of the most desirable destination wedding hotels in Jamaica, and it goes to great lengths to create a memorable experience -- the food is excellent, the service attentive, and the setting exclusive, intimate, and beautiful. Read more about weddings at the Rockhouse Hotel Private, sea-side receptions are held at the on-site restaurant. Brides and grooms can get pampered at the Rockhouse Spa, which offers a broad range of holistic treatments. Treatments take place in the Zen Buddhist-themed facility or at "massage point," a three-walled hut overlooking the sea. The hotel requires the great majority of their rooms to be booked for a minimum of three nights. The rooms where your guests will stay are basic, comfortable, and unplugged, with no TVs, Wi-Fi, or radios. Most newlyweds stay in the Premium Villas, located directly on the cliff's edge, and partially hidden from other resort guests. Half Moon -- our pick for the top luxury resort in Jamaica -- is a gorgeous property with enough options and flexibility to plan an elegant and personalized celebration. The Sunset Beach Gazebo is a popular ceremony spot. Read more about weddings at Half Moon The hotel's spectacular, two-mile long crescent-shaped beach beckons from nearly every window. Couples can get married with their toes in the sand at Sunrise Beach. The Fern Tree Spa offers massages, skin treatments, hair and makeup, mani/pedis, and yoga and meditation classes. Many newlyweds choose to stay in the Hibiscus Suite, which has a beautiful four-poster bed and a private patio. Wedding parties might also consider booking some of the larger villas. Round Hill is one of the most beautiful (and expensive) properties in Jamaica. A wedding here is expensive, no doubt, but for the price you get flawless service and unmatched elegance. Read more about weddings at Round Hill The rooms, among the best in Jamaica, were designed by Ralph Lauren and feature white decor and ocean views. Built into a cliff edge, the 24-hour infinity pool (beaming red and turquoise by night) is the most popular hotel feature. The Seaside Terrace ceremony location can fit up to 150 people and costs $1,500. Jake's arid, other-worldly surroundings are without doubt some of the most beautiful anywhere in Jamaica. Events here are more personalized, and far more private, than what you'll find at the mega resorts. Only real down side: It's about a two- to three-hour bumpy and confusing drive from the airport. Read more about weddings at Jake's The Restaurant at Jake's is a fun, funky reception location; the different four-course plated menus ($35, $45, or $55 a head) all offer local ingredients, fresh seafood, and more traditional Jamaican flavors than you'll find at other resorts. You can also host your reception at the yoga pavilion overlooking the sea. Jake's rustic, quirky cottages have a hippie-chic aesthetic, and no TVs, Internet, or modern technology. With exceptional, yet reasonably priced food and drinks, above-and-beyond service, and a gorgeous, intimate-feeling location, Tensing Pen is one of the best choices for small weddings. Read more about weddings at Tensing Pen Couples can get married at varoius points along the cliffs, depending on the size of the party. Receptions are hosted at the on-site restaurant, overlooking the sea. The standard dinner costs $40 per person (cake and dessert cost an extra $6 per person) and includes the choice of three hors d'oeuvres (such as mini fish cakes with sherry dipping sauce, plantain fritters, smoked marlin quesadillas), a salad (such as avocado black beans and corn salad), the choice of one meat (such as pan-fried snapper with pineapple salsa) and one vegetarian entree (stir-fried vegetables with pumpkin sauce), as well as some sides and starches. Tensing Pen's cottages are all unique, and contain simple furnishings and comfortable beds. The Long House has a superb ocean view from its terrace. Honeymooners often prefer upgrading to the more isolated Seagrape suites. The Grand Palladium is one of the most reasonably-priced and well-equipped all-inclusives in Jamaica. Though a bit limited, its wedding options are affordable and easy. Read more about weddings at Grand Palladium The ocean-view gazebo is a pouplar ceremony location. Couples can also get married right on the beach. The spa offers three wedding packages, ranging from $180 to $376 for massages, mani/pedis, hair dressing, and makeup application for the bride. The adults-only suites, preferred by honeymooners, come with a sea view and an outdoor shower (a rare treat, for a megaresort). The Ritz-Carlton's long list of wedding packages and extras certainly bests the one-size-fits-all approach to destination weddings elsewhere. But as one might expect from a Ritz-Carlton, a wedding here isn't cheap. Read more about weddings at the Ritz-Carlton White Witch Golf Course, at the peak of a mountain and overlooking the Caribbean sea, is a beautiful ceremony location. East Beach is another popular ceremony spot. In the huge, 960-square-foot Ocean Front Suite, honeymooners can watch the sunrise over the Caribbean Sea from two private balconies. This quaint, classically luxurious resort offers a personal touch and rich pedigree -- its roster of notable former guests includes Katherine Hepburn and Winston Churchill. Note, however, that unless you book the entire resort, ceremonies on the beach are in open view of other guests. Read more about weddings at the Jamaica Inn Buffets range from Beachside BBQs ($65 per person) to traditional Jamaican fare ($120 per person). Plated dinners cost, on average, about $34 to $74 for a three course meal (hors d'oeuvres cost extra). Wedding couples typically opt for the White Suite or the romantic Cottages No. 3 or No. 4, which have private plunge pools overlooking the sea. Open fourth "walls" and oversize terraces blur the lines between inside and out in the refined yet casual rooms. The Premier Verandah Suite (pictured) goes right up to the water. A big step up from the typical all-inclusive resort, the Royal Plantation offers much better food, doting service, and a gorgeous beach that's largely cut off from strolling gawkers. Read more about weddings at the Royal Plantation The gazebo on the pier makes a great ceremony spot, and it's also used for morning yoga. With romantic neo-classical architecture, checkered marble floors, and whimsical statues, it's no wonder this reserved, adults-only resort is popular among honeymooners. The Governor General's Oceanfront One-Bedroom Suite is the best room in the hotel, and newlyweds might appreciate its huge, private terrace and two-person Jacuzzi tub. Sunset Beach Resort is a fine choice among the all-inclusives in Montego Bay. It's affordable, close to the airport, has excellent dinner options, name-brand liquor (for an extra fee), and it balances fun features for kids (water park) and adults (private nude beach). Read more about weddings at the Sunset Beach Resort Short pockets of beach line the resort, interrupted by man-made rock-cluster dams. The bar by the ocean is a lovely spot to relax. Although the outdated rooms are the hotel's weak point, they have beautiful balcony views.
