One of Jamaica’s biggest and best-known resorts, associated with the names of many of the world’s rich and famous, the Half Moon still somehow manages to give you the feeling of being on an intimate cottage holiday. The 197 rooms are housed in charming colonial-style buildings, spread over the 400 acres of landscaped grounds, and every single room is individually styled in traditional Jamaican plantation-style decor, with polished wooden floors and rattan furniture. There are also 31 Royal Villas, each with 4-7 bedrooms and all having private pools — these are perfect for families and large groups, and come with their own cook, butler and housekeeper.
The central areas of the resort feature buildings in traditional Jamaican style, with black and white colour schemes and Georgian arches. With its six restaurants and eight bars, the Half Moon can cater for all dining tastes, but everyone should sample the famous Sugar Mill, acclaimed as one of the finest restaurants in the Caribbean, and providing a special fusion of Jamaican with Asian and European flavours. The unique combination of cottage-style intimacy and upbeat luxury also makes the Half Moon a superb setting for weddings and honeymoons, and there are wedding co-ordinators to help in planning a special day tailored to your individual requirements.
