One of my favorite luxury hotels in Jamaica is Secrets Wild Orchid. I've been fortunate enough to stay at both the Secrets Wild Orchid and Secrets St. James. Hands down the best experience ever! The first time I stayed there I stayed at Secrets Wild Orchid and what a stay it was!
I started my journey from Kingston to Montego Bay on a hot summer day and upon arrival I was greeted with a refreshing drink and a cold minted towel to cool down as I exited the car. I was then escorted inside to check in (I didn't see my luggage again until I entered my room). After I checked in I was then escorted to my room and when the door opened I was in awe and felt tingles all over my body because I was so excited. My luggage was already in the room and let me just say for a hotel suite its pretty spacious. Secrets is a suite only hotel so you can just imagine the room.
Let's talk about the bed shall we. The bed was super comfortable and honestly I would have spent the entire time in bed because it was so comfortable and plush. You get turned down service every night topped with a minted chocolate on your pillow. Yes! You get minted chocolate every night. If that wasn't enough they had mood lighting in the ceiling of the room, guaranteed to make me sleep in 10 seconds flat. The closet space was a descent size and they had a nice soft bath robe hung nicely on the hanger. The whirlpool tub! Uh! I spent almost every day in that whirlpool tub. I loved that they had an ipod dock that when connected you get surround sound in your entire room. They make the room so comfortable you'll find it hard to leave.
Let The Adults Play
Beyond the room there's lots to see and do at the hotel. First of all, this is an adult only hotel so you won't see kids running about. The food was delicious and you had various choices from Japanese to French cuisine to Jamaican and best of all they had 24 hour room service (at no extra charge). I was in food heaven. I tried to pace myself but the food was just so good and whatever alcoholic drink you love you can bet that you can get it here. Did I mention this hotel is all inclusive? Marinate on that for a bit...
Where do I begin with activities. They have water sports of course, but they also have a courtyard where you can play chess, pool, grab a yogurt or watch a nice romantic movie under the starts. The nightclub was surprisingly fun where they had kareoke and you could dance the night away (I belted out a song or two). If none of that is for you then the you can just chill on the white sandy beach or by the pool where they have a swim up bar. Either way you can't go wrong. Also, I forgot to mention that they have peacocks roaming around the grounds which are so cute and they also have parrots.
Outside of the hotel I went on the zipline tour which was amazing! We had to hike what I would call a mountain and zipline to various points but the highest point was the best as you got to see a birds eye view of the country side.
I would go to Secrets a third time in a heartbeat. The service is impeccable and the comfort is truly amazing. It's also a great time to book as prices are at a all time low . As low as $218 USD a night but not for long, so get it the luxury experience at a great rate while you can!
