When To Travel
All of the holidays we create are completely tailor-made to you
Day 1: International Flight
Your flight to Jamaica leaves the UK at lunchtime today. It's a near ten-hour flight to Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay on the north west coast of Jamaica, so make sure to have the children's Sharky & George fun packs and fully charged iPads at the ready.
After you've landed and picked up your bags one of our team on the ground will meet you for the half-hour private transfer to your home for the week. When you arrive there will be time for a quick dip in the pool before bed (for the children) and a couple of rum punches (for the adults).
Day 2: Messing About in Boats
We imagine you'll be up with the larks this morning, so we've arranged an early breakfast followed by a morning learning to sail. Depending on your ability - and always making sure the youngest members of the group can keep up - you will head out with instructors in Hobie Cat catamarans.
Once you've learnt your port from your starboard and tacking from jibing, you will split up into teams for a race back to the shore and lunch. This afternoon we recommend getting the lie of the land, checking out the lovely sandy beach and infinity pool before soaking up some sun.
Days 3–6: Family Fun in the Sun
The fun continues for the next few days, with parents and children alike able to make use of the hotel's watersports facilities, including glass-bottomed boat tours, kayaking and pedal boating, and snorkelling and waterskiing for older children. When the children need some downtime (and the parents some grown up time), the resort has two excellent kids' clubs designed for three to six and seven-plus year olds respectively. Younger children can enjoy nature walks, arts and crafts, watersports and even fun reggae music classes, while their older siblings can enjoy everything from talent shows to basket weaving and basketball.
For a bit of cultural context, and to explore more of this fascinating island, we can arrange private plantation house tours or more active excursions such as zip-lining. Another great way to absorb a bit of Jamaican culture is to eat out, and our local Concierge can recommend and book the best local restaurant, where the children can experience jerk chicken, the local delicacy, albeit a less spicy version than for the parents!
Day 7: International Flight
Today is your last day in Jamaica, but the good news is that your flight is not until this evening, so we've arranged for late check out and you can enjoy one last day on the beach or topping up on watersports. After a final quick rinse off in the shower to get rid of the sand you will be privately transferred to the airport in good time for your nine-hour overnight flight back to London.
Day 8: Arrive Back in the UK
Your flight arrives back in London mid-morning.
