Fly Me to the Half Moon And Run Away To Romance JAMAICA!


Fly Me to the Half Moon And Run Away To Romance

By Denise Bomstein

Rekindle or keep the flames burning by heading off to The Half Moon Golf, Tennis and Beach Club, a luxurious resort that oozes class and sophistication. The Half Moon is a participating member of the prestigious "Elegant Resorts International" consortiums. Located on Montego Bay, Jamaica, it's a romantic hideaway perfectly suited for first, second or third honeymoons. Four hundred acres of magnificent landscaped lawns and gardens include a private crescent -shaped bay, which gives the resort its name. Your choice of first class accommodations includes gorgeous English style villas complete with your own cook, butler, housekeeper, and private pool. There is an exotic mix of elegant Queen Anne mahogany furnishings and bright Jamaican paintings. The third floor suite complete with a four poster bed and private balcony overlooking the Caribbean is seductive. Offering five star accommodations, choose from 220 rooms and suites or 32 villas. With its friendly staff catering to every whim and relaxed atmosphere, the Half Moon is a world class, superb slice of paradise.

Outdoors Recreational activities include tennis courts (lit for night play), a fully equipped equestrian center, a croquet lawn, squash courts, and a full service spa and fitness center. Ocean sports include: boating, fishing, diving, jet-skiing, and snorkeling into the crystal blue waters of the Half Moon's private beach. Plus, the resort boasts an award winning golf course. The course, sculpted from the foothills of the coastline is home to a number of prestigious tournaments.

We all need to eat For the ultimate intimacy, dine at your villa with your private cook serving up gastronomical delights, or enjoy award-winning cuisine at an array of restaurants. For romance, dine at the intimate 11 Giardino, where Italian dishes are prepared under the watchful eye of Chef Rusconi. For an amorous ambiance enjoy the informal elegance of the historic Sugar Mill Restaurant, featuring a 200-year-old water mill and gourmet candle lit dinners. For a relaxed atmosphere how about a beach side barbecue? Other culinary delights include the enchanting restaurants at the Half Moon Shopping Village. The resort offers a "Dine-Around" program where you can feast at Bellfield House 1794 located on the 3,000-acre Barnett Sugar Plantation, a sister Elegant Resort. This open-air restaurant specializes in traditional Jamaican cooking and a calypso band. The Half Moon's entertainment schedule runs the gamut from crab racing to steel bands to soothing piano music.
