Star Clipper Cruise Review – Antigua and St. Barts

We Have Secrets To Share – A Trip Report

Secrets Wild Orchid Resort JamaicaJamaica has a new all-inclusive luxury resort that’s just opened in Montego Bay promising “Unlimited-Luxury” for their guests.  Secrets Wild Orchid and Secrets St. James sit side by side on a lovely stretch of beach just a short journey from the airport.   It’s time to let the Secrets out – these are beautiful properties!

I’m just back from the first-ever Travel Bloggers Meet-Up in Jamaica where we were hosted by Secrets Resorts and the Jamaican Tourism Board.  You can be sure we took full advantage of all the Unlimited Luxury and tested all the resort amenities – on YOUR behalf of course!  Here are some of the delights in store for you when you choose a luxurious Jamaica Holiday.

Wild Orchid Beach
Resort Amenities:  These properties are all about couples and providing romantic landscapes.  Both resorts are adults-only with plenty of waterside activities – gorgeous beaches, swim up bars, multiple pool complexes, and seaside restaurants.  The beach towels and loungers are plentiful (no need to get up a dawn and claim your lounge chair – I hate that!!)   This property has done it right with loads of areas for relaxing by the pools and beachfront.
