Luxury travel is back. The pandemic-weary population is emerging from lockdowns with the goal of relaxing and reviving senses dulled by one zoom meeting too many. Whether it is finally taking the postponed honeymoon, or just getting some time away from home, travelers seeking a uniquely restorative experience can find it at Sunset at the Palms, a boutique Jamaican resort with the tagline, “Sensory Magic.”Sunset at the Palms offers an indulgent, adults-only experience. The resort has always featured its own version of “social distancing,” with just 85 rooms and 25 acres of beachfront and gardens for maximum privacy. The all-inclusive resort makes it easy to indulge all your senses through a full range of experiences.
- Accommodations. Upon arrival, your senses will be rewarded with the pleasant scent of lemongrass oil used to clean the natural wood found throughout the room, creating a relaxing atmosphere within the space. You have the choice of rooms or suites, in one of the resort’s “treehouses,” an individual Asian-inspired bungalow featuring private balconies located within lush gardens for privacy, but just steps from the beach, with full amenities, including wi-fi, king-size beds, and luxurious bathrooms.
- Dining. Sunset at the Palms tantalizes the taste buds with dining options including buffets, a la carte restaurants, room service, and private beach bar and grill amenities. The resort showcases the tastes of the island with Caribbean fusion cuisine while providing a range of dining options to suit all tastes. A weekly cocktail party adds spice to the experience.
- Relaxing. At the resort’s Ginger Lily Spa, “our mission is to help you relax,” says Kamarla Simms, general manager.
Curate your experience from a menu of wraps, scrubs, massages, and facial treatments designed to help you unwind and rejuvenate. A full-service beauty salon is available, along with manicure and pedicure services.
- Sporting. When you are ready to indulge your sense of excitement, check out the range of water-sports opportunities at the resort’s on-site water sports center. Want to leave your stress on the water? The resort has kayaks, paddleboards, or low-key pedal boats. Snorkeling equipment is available as well, so you can experience the ever-changing undersea environment.
