Low in the sky, the sun is a golden orb on a direct course to the horizon. I thread my fingers through my husband’s, waist deep in warm Caribbean water. On the beaches of Negril, watching the setting sun paint the sky in sherbet shades is a nightly ritual.
Cocktails at our resort’s oceanfront bar are calling, but before heading back to the room to rinse off under the rainshower, we warm up in the waterfront hot tub. Stars slowly start to prickle to life in the sky, turning on like lightbulbs, one by one. Will we opt for a casual toes-in-the-sand seafood dinner or choose Italian at the resort’s romantic trattoria? There’s no rush. We are on island time at this adults-only resort, where the all-inclusive experience comes with as many (or as few) activities as you please.
And while the concept of the all-inclusive resort may not have been pioneered here (the Caribbean island of Antigua stakes that claim), Jamaica reigns as one of the top destinations in the world when an all-in vacation on an island paradise tops your bucket list.
From bedding down in your own overwater bungalow on the beaches of Montego Bay to testing the waters at a risqué address for grownup fun in laid-back Negril, Jamaica is calling. It’s worth leaving the kids behind to head south for the adults-only Caribbean good life at these top all-inclusive resorts that are strictly for adults.
