Secrets Wild Orchid will leave you wanting for nothing during your time in Montego Bay, as this luxury Jamaican resort is packed full of things to do, gourmet restaurants to dine in, a superb spa for easy afternoons and golden, sandy shores to top it all off.
First and foremost it’s worth noting the wealth of activities and entertainment that are included throughout your stay, with the sprawling Secrets Wild Orchid being home to a fleet of boats, catamarans and a dive school – plus plenty of other watersports equipment too. There are also multiple swimming pools; a gym; sports courts both on the beach and around the grounds; games rooms; an amusement arcade and no less than 16 fine dining restaurants and bars to savour. You can pick up a bicycle or go horse riding, join a yoga or cookery class, dip into one of several boutiques selling everything from designer silverware to local arts and crafts, pitch up at one of five nearby golf courses or perhaps spend the day making the most of your complimentary beach service, enjoying a cocktail or two by the bay. This really is just a taster of what is on offer at Secrets Wild Orchid, as night-time entertainment is also part of the package, such as their themed evenings and parties, live shows at the open-air theatre or musical performances in some of the bars.
If that weren’t enough, you’ll also have access to Wild Orchid’s adults-only sister property next door too, the Secrets St. James Montego Bay resort, giving couples in particular almost endless options, bars, pools and facilities to make use of.
The beauty of Secrets Wild Orchid is that this treasure trove of in-house extras also comes with style. You’ll notice that every restaurant and bar has its own particular look and feel, suites are handsomely designed and everything from the carefully placed palm trees to the marble wrapped around your outdoor Jacuzzi all works in harmony. Then, when you do decide to venture out and see the highlights of Montego Bay and wider Jamaica, there is a host of day trips on your doorstep, from sunset boat tours to the nearby Dunn’s River Falls and much more besides; Secrets Wild Orchid Resort simply ticks every Caribbean box.
Suites at Secrets Wild Orchid are each a sophisticated affair of dark wood furnishings and bright white walls, king-size four-poster beds (or two queens), interesting artworks and thoughtful colour schemes throughout, all with garden or ocean views. Then, in addition to their good looks, every suite also comes with a whirlpool tub, private balcony or terrace, complimentary minibar, Gilchrist & Soames toiletries, iPod docks and a flat-screen TV, bathrobes, slippers, all other mod-cons and butler service on request. Certain suites then open up directly onto one of the resort’s lagoon swimming pools which is a marvellous touch, while top suites also include an outdoor tub or Jacuzzi on the terrace too. Finally, anyone staying in Preferred Club category suites can enjoy privileges including a special concierge service, upgraded minibar, exclusive bookings around Montego Bay and lounge access around the resort.
The best lip-smacking Jamaican and Caribbean cuisine are brought to life at this relatively formal evening restaurant.
French classics with a cutting-edge twist on the plate, served up in an elegant, high-ceilinged dining hall.
Pick up a freshly baked pastry, sandwich, snack or coffee at the Coco Café, handy if heading out on a day trip.
Asian-inspired Himitsu Restaurant is a great choice for lovers of sushi, sashimi, delicate noodle dishes and fragrant curries; delicious.
For the best seafood dishes served in sight of the ocean, semi-open-air Oceana on the waterfront is simply a must while here.
Everyone’s favourite Italian food comes to Secrets Wild Orchid at Portofino, housed as it is in a stylishly colonnaded restaurant space that adds a touch of class.
Another grill house offering but a little more formal than Barefoot Grill, the Seaside Grill – found next to one of the pools – is a great place to come for a sit-down lunch or light early evening meal as the sun sets.
A super stylish beach bar of daybeds and swinging bar chairs, head here for cocktails and nibbles day and night.
Live music and sports, a well-stocked top shelf and glamorous interior design can be found at Desires.
Activities and Entertainment
Days are easily filled at the Secrets Wild Orchid resort, both by the wealth of onsite entertainment and nearby highlights of Montego Bay too, plus full use of the facilities at the resort’s sister hotel next door, the adults-only Secrets St. James Montego Bay. At the hotel itself however, you have endless treatments and non-stop pampering available at the Secrets Spa by Pevonia, as well as several luxe swimming pools and a gym; all imaginable sports courts from beach football to tennis, basketball to volleyball; sailboats, scuba, snorkelling, windsurfing and catamarans for hire; bicycles to rent; yoga and aerobics; cooking and dance classes; five 18-hole golf courses nearby and a clutch of boutique outlets too – the list goes on. Then, the Dunn River Falls, sunset cruises off the bay, rum factory tour or quad bike adventure are just some of the day trips that are also easily booked from the Secrets Wild Orchid resort.
You’ll struggle to find a better equipped luxury Caribbean resort than Secrets Wild Orchid, as they really have tried to include just about everything under one glamorous roof here. Onsite and around the private peninsula grounds, you’ll find a 15,000sq ft Secrets Spa by Pevonia with hydrotherapy pools, signature treatments, wraps, massage and beauty salon services galore, plus a gym; multiple swimming pools; beach service and games; jewellery, clothes, cigar and craft shops; an open-air theatre with live shows; numerous sports courts and jogging trails; bicycles for hire; watersports equipment; a gaming lounge and five 18-hole golf courses nearby.
Montego Bay, Jamaica. Though the Secrets Wild Orchid resort sits on its own stretch of sand out on a peninsula, you are not quite as isolated as it sometimes blissfully feels, as all of the main Montego Bay attractions – and other highlights of Jamaica – can easily be reached from here. Meanwhile Sangster International Airport is less than 4 miles away.
