A&K Top Tip

Childhood dreams can come true as you swim with dolphins in the hotel's large ocean lagoon. Private swims can be arranged if you are wanting more one-on-one time with these intelligent and charming creatures.

Nestled on a two-mile, crescent-shaped beach on Jamaica's northern coast, Half Moon, is truly paradise found. This spectacular, 400-acre luxury resort features pristine, whitewashed cottages surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and the sparkling Caribbean Sea beyond.

Expertly combining Old World charm and elegant modern touches, Half Moon offers 197 guest rooms and suites, and 31 private villas. Each one is beautifully appointed, showcasing its own distinct Caribbean personality - decorated with vibrant hues and stately furnishings; they are light and airy spaces.

With its spectacular seaside location, rich Caribbean heritage, warm and attentive staff and exceptional array of amenities, this iconic Jamaican destination has set the standard for luxury Caribbean resorts for more than 50 years. The resort offers a huge range of facilities and activities - from golf, tennis and water sports, to 400 acres of landscaped grounds, two miles of golden beach and a dolphin lagoon. Yoga and Pilates packages are available and cater to all levels.

With five superb restaurants to choose from, diners will be spoilt for choice; Seagrape's menu is international but with an emphasis of ingredients grown and reared locally while the Sugar Mill is recognised as the best restaurant in Jamaica and one of the finest in the Caribbean.
