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.

Fernandina Amelia IslandGetting to Amelia Island – We stopped by on our (end of winter) drive north from Florida back to Boston.  Amelia Island is located along the Jacksonville coast, making it a quick detour off Route 95 to Route 17 then over the bridge onto A1A.  If you’re flying there’s more good news – JetBlue often has reasonably priced nonstop flights to Jacksonville from many of the cities they serve.  You should be able to find a good array of flight choices into Jacksonville (JAX) airport.
