Grand Lido Braco Resort & Spa - Montego Bay, Jamaica -
The world's first super-inclusive Jamaican village, the Grand Lido Braco Resort & Spa recreates the atmosphere of an island village-from a town square lined with shops, restaurants and galleries, to vendors and craftsmen who set up shop along its cobblestone streets, to the two-story gingerbread cottages that house the resort's guestrooms.
Located in historic Falmouth, on Jamaica's northern coast, the resort is for guests ages 16 and older, and couples.
Colonial plantation décor dominates the fourteen separate buildings housing rooms painted in muted tones of sand and sage, with upscale touches like antique-style furniture and pillow-top mattresses. All rooms feature beachfront, ocean or garden views; two buildings in the resort's private section overlook the clothing optional beach.
Dine in a formal setting at the Piacere or Japanese fare at Munasan. La Pasta offers casual alfresco Italian cuisine,while the Victoria Market serves a tropical buffet for breakfast and lunch; dinner is à la carte. Jamaican specialties are the order of the day at the Reggae Café RASTAurant. Guests may order room service and dine on their private terrace, all part of the super-inclusive experience with no tipping allowed.
Daytime activities include volleyball, hiking, tennis and golf, and water sports such as scuba diving, snorkeling, and kayaking. The Blue Mahoe Spa offers island-inspired signature therapies, among them the Caribbean Hue facial and a revitalizing Reggae Jammin body scrub. At night there are theme parties and galas, dining under the stars and dancing at the disco.
