Jamaica Awaits Welcome to Montego Bay

Nicole, thank you for asking me to assist with your Jamaica getaway. The following is an overview of each resort, followed by package prices by date.

Riu Resorts in Montego Bay

The Riu Reggae and Riu Palace are located next to each other. The Reggae is newer (just opened late 2016) and livelier, while the Palace is smaller and more laid back. Both share the same stretch of sandy beach, both are adults only. While staying at the Palace you have access to the Reggae.

Riu Reggae

Riu Reggae - next door to Riu Palace

The Riu Reggae is a glamorous adults only 454 room resort perfect for couples or friends seeking adventure in a Caribbean paradise. Close to many of the island’s key attractions, the resort is also ideally situated for exploring Montego Bay. Foodies will appreciate the wide variety of restaurants included as part of the all inclusive package ranging from a steakhouse grill to stylish Asian and Italian-themed dining venues. With 2 stunning swimming pools, a Renova Spa, and picturesque beachfront, Riu Reggae offers adults the best combination of romantic relaxation and exciting activities.

Riu Palace

Hotel Riu Palace

Recently built, this 200 room adults only resort boasts an elegant and modern interior surrounded by lush gardens, tropical palm trees and an idyllic blue ocean. Sun-loving guests can relax at one of three infinity pools – two with swim-up bars – free sun loungers and balconies or terraces in all rooms. Free water sports like catamaran sailing and snorkelling keep active travellers busy. After a busy day on the water or by the pool, refuel with a meal from one of five restaurants offering a wide range of cuisines like Italian, steakhouse and Japanese meals. Live music shows keep guests entertained or for more options, visitors can enjoy access to amenities like the Pacha disco and terrace sports bar at the Riu Montego Bay located just next door.

Riu Palace

Breathless Montego Bay - opened Feb. 2017

Nicole, I've included Breathless in your quote as it is a brand new resort and it is a sister resort to Secrets, which you requested. Breathless has a funkier vibe but the same level of service as Secrets - and the value right now, as it is a new resort, cannot be beat. Gratuities are included at Breathless resorts. Enjoy free flow access to eight bars and ten restaurants with Exchange Privileges, right next door at Secrets Wild Orchid and Secrets St. James!

Breathless Montego Bay - night

Surrounded by Montego Bay’s impressive mountains and mangroves, the Breathless Montego Bay opened in February 2017. With all-new facilities and a modern design, this 150 suite resort offers adults only sophistication and a party scene that will thrill couples, singles, or groups. Enjoy all the benefits of the Unlimited-Luxury® concept where everything from 24 hour room service, to reservation-free gourmet dining, and all top shelf spirits are included. There are seven restaurants within the resort including Altitude a rooftop restaurant and bar serving fusion cuisine and a late night café. This resort is *not* directly on the beach, however there is private beach access and an exclusive Beach Club for Breathless patrons less than a five minute walk away. Spend your days on the white sand beach, visiting the world-class Spa by Pevonia® at the neighbouring Secrets Wild Orchid and Secrets St. James, or enjoying pool and beach wait service. In the evenings the party begins, with dance parties, talent shows, acrobatic performances and Gatsby themed bar nights all on the menu. Monthly themed events include everything from NFL Kick-Off Nights to Oktoberfest.

Secrets St. James and Wild Orchid

Secrets St. James and Wild Orchid

I am grouping these two together as they are next door to each other and share free flow access. Each side of the resort has 350 suites, all are adult only. The main difference between the resorts is that all of the restaurants are on the Wild Orchid side. Gratuities are included at Secrets resorts.

Secrets map

Set on a peninsula surrounded by crystal-clear waters, this tranquil resort combines a scenic oceanfront location with a host of Unlimited-Luxury® features that include elegant guest suites, reservation-free dining, unlimited top-shelf spirits at any of the bars and nightly entertainment.

Plentiful complimentary water sports are available on the beach, there are two refreshing pools to cool off in, and those who love golf can tee-off on nearby golf courses. Guests can upgrade to Preferred Club Lounge where they can enjoy Unlimited Connectivity with free Wi-Fi, and VIP services such as an exclusive daily continental breakfast, private pool, upgraded mini bars, personal concierge, and premium liquors in the private lounge.

Package Details

All package prices are per couple, return from Toronto. There are two prices for each category, the second includes optional but *highly* recommended Club Mobay arrival and departure service in Montego Bay. This routinely cuts two-three hours of arrival time: someone meets you at arrivals and escorts you through an expedited arrival process. On the return, there is a special screening line and a very comfortable lounge area with drinks and snacks.

*please note, April 30 priced considerably higher than May 1, e.g. Riu on April 30 $4590, yet $3790 on May 1. Thus, only May 1 has been included. Where possible the exact same room categories have been used for each date, when not an option, the nearest category has been used.
