An Exclusive Resort for a Golf and Spa Vacation in Jamaica

An exclusive resort for a golf and spa vacation in Jamaica enquiry, leads one very quickly to the The Ritz-Carlton Golf & Spa Resort in Rose Hall.

It is situated on the historic 5000 acre Rose Hall Plantation Estate at Montego Bay, and The Ritz-Carlton Golf & Spa Resort manages to do the almost impossible. It has 427 rooms and suites, so it is a large exclusive resort but somehow it feels intimate and small.

This exclusive resort is on the north coast of Jamaica, close to Montego Bay, and it sits in a small cove of its own, and you should be prepared for the fact the beach is small and not as good as many others.

Jamaica Spa VacationIf you are here at the Ritz Carlton for the Spa and the Golf, then you will certainly not be disappointed. The Spa covers 8000 square feet, has more than a dozen private treatment rooms, and the background perfume is an intriguing blend of allspice, the local hugely exported plant.

The treatments available go from The Sugarcane Body Scrub followed by a massage using tropical fruits made up as a cream. You can have the Nourishing Rose Body Wrap, a Close To You Couples Massage, then you can enjoy a Vita-Ginko Facial Treatment. If you want try a Lady of Rose Hall Bath with fragrant flower petals, the Matrimony Fruit Bath for two, and the Cabbage Salt Glow!!

Add to all this a sauna, a steam room, and a Beauty Salon, and all your cares will be massaged. Soaked or melted away before you know where you are!! An upgrade to the already very good facility is underway.

The highlight for golfers is the White Witch Golf Course, which winds its way through the mountainous parts of the Rose Hall Estate, a 10 minute shuttle ride away from the Ritz Carlton, is considered one of the finest golf courses in the Caribbean. It is a par 71 6859 yard course with spectacular ocean views, and a number of tricky holes. The green fees for guests vary between $125 to $189 per round depending on the time of year for hotel guests and whilst they don't include taxes or a gratuity for the Caddie Concierge they do include the Caddie Concierge Program, green fees, cart, and practice balls. The Caddy Concierges are an invaluable assist in finding your way round the course, and they will do all the mundane tasks like finding balls, raking bunkers, cleaning clubs, thus making your golf that much more enjoyable.

There is a lot more to this exclusive resort than just the Spa and the Golf. It is a well equipped resort, with good rooms, the four restaurants are excellent, and well mannered staff who look after the guests in a very old fashioned way seldom seen in the twenty first century.

You will enjoy the pool which is big enough, and seldom crowded, with enough sunbeds to go round. For a resort of this size, The Ritz Carlton Jamaica never seems that busy, which is a tribute to the thought that went into the design and layout.

This exclusive resort will keep you occupied if you want to be, allow you to relax if you feel like being lazy, and generally justify its claim to being a top Jamaica resort.
