Since their start in 1949, Couples Resorts have been innovators. Their founders, the Issa family, dreamt of a different experience, one both immersive and exclusive. It’s where the all-inclusive concept was born! Not one to nickel and dime their guests, they wanted to extend the luxury experience to begin the moment you walk on property to the moment you boarded the plane back home.
Couples Resorts include four breathtaking beachfront properties, all situated along Jamaica’s North and West Coasts. Negril is home to Couples Negril and Couples Swept Away. Ocho Rios houses both Couples Tower Isle and Couples Sans Souci. Each resort has a distinct identity and personality, while maintaining a consistent standard of service across the board.
While Couples Tower Isle has a vibrant, Art Deco vibe, Couples Swept Away immerses you in so much foliage, you might think you were in the middle of a Jamaican Jungle. And then you emerge to find the pristine and famous 7-mile beach lining the other side.
And then there’s Couples Sans Souci. Taken to the next level, with ocean access and rooms high upon the bluffs, this all-suite resort has a very low-key and relaxed vibe. Float in a hammock overlooking the ocean or relax in a mineral bath stone grotto off the beaten path. Couples Negril is very intimate, lively and low-key, an oceanfront oasis.
Every property boasts an award-winning spa, where you can relax and rejuvenate. Even better, for those that can’t get enough of the spa, Couples Tower Isle offers special packages with gorgeous villas conveniently located directly next to the spa, with unlimited spa services included. We agree, it sounds too good to be true, but we’ve seen it for ourselves.
And perhaps one of the most distinctive features to the Couples Resorts brand is their stance on being au naturel with three of their resorts featuring a nude area. Whether you’ve wanted a chance to explore a little more freedom, or you prefer being in your natural state, they’ve made it not only possible, but inviting and relaxing all at the same time.
And if relaxing in luxury doesn’t feel good enough, this contemporary company also loves giving back. In fact, in 2005, they started the Issa Trust Foundation, with a focus on providing pediatric care and education for children of Jamaica. Many guests enjoy participating through Pack For a Purpose, where they bring a few school supplies or books when they come to donate to the organization with the help of the resort. Let’s face it, that ensures you have room in your suitcase to bring back some authentic Jamaican souvenirs. Sounds like a win-win to us!
