This award-winning, plantation-style resort, both conceived by and for the past 50 years managed by the O'Hara family, is renowned for its impeccable service, fine cuisine and enviable setting. No surprise then, that it has become a stylish retreat for the rich and famous.
The enchantment and romance of a bygone era is evident throughout this elegant retreat, where the friendly and long-serving staff create a genuine feeling that this is a real home from home for their most frequent visitors. Families are welcome, however traditionally no children are accepted between 1 February and 28 February (dates subject to annual change) to maintain a relaxed and adult-friendly atmosphere in that period.
Dotted among the mahogany, casuarina and frangipani trees you'll find the pretty coral stone cottages that house the rooms and suites, all of which offer the choice of either ocean, pool or garden views. A short wander from the colonial-style clubhouse, past the pool and through the tropical, perfumed gardens, the pristine white sands of St James' Beach await, ensuring that everything you need to make your stay perfect is within reach.
Having been created by an award-winning spa consultant, guests can combine luxury pampering with a sense of place in the unmistakably Caribbean-style spa. However, nothing can compare to the natural beauty of a Caribbean sunset and because this resort is situated on the West Coast of the island, it's a spectacle you can savour every evening of your holiday.
Improvements made to Coral Reef Club in recent years have included a fresh look for the restaurant, where guests are treated to à la carte West Indian and international favourites, alongside the weekly buffet and barbecue. For the ultimate relaxation, ask your Travel Specialist about the resort’s Spa Wellness Retreats which include yoga, Pilates and meditation. A ‘must-do’ for every guest to the hotel should be a garden tour of the tropical flora and fauna, which really is exceptional.
