JEWEL GRANDE MONTEGO BAY RE­SORT AND SPA

Working Mother - - Home Front - Montego Bay, Ja­maica jew­el­grande.com

The deal: Start­ing at $205 per per­son (Oc­to­ber rates start at $175), you get a large suite and op­tions to dine at 12 restau­rants serv­ing tra­di­tional Ja­maican fare and more. The re­sort, which opened this past fall, has two pools, a pri­vate cove and a high-end, two-floor villa-in­spired spa, which houses the Caribbean’s first and only Hi­malayan Salt Ther­apy Lounge.

Why we love it: The ac­com­mo­da­tions are gor­geous, and staff ar­range your trans­porta­tion to and from the air­port, just 15 min­utes away. Once you check in, you are as­signed a but­ler for your suite, whose sole purpose is to make your stay—and other guests’ nearby—as pleas­ant as pos­si­ble. They’ll do things, gratis, such as bring de­li­cious Ja­maican pat­ties to you on the beach, take your kids out for a meal so you can have some alone time, give makeup-ap­pli­ca­tion lessons or throw you an in-suite mini party for spe­cial oc­ca­sions. What’s more, in­side ev­ery room is a fully equipped kitchen with stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances, gran­ite coun­ter­tops, a pri­vate bal­cony, high-speed Wi-Fi and a large flat-screen HDTV. There’s also a kids’ club and teen lounge, and a selection of non­mo­tor­ized wa­ter­sports for fun-filled af­ter­noons.
