Whitehouse honeymoon

On the untouched South Coast of beautiful Jamaica is the incredible settlement known as Whitehouse, which not only includes one of the most stunning resorts in the world, but is home to the exclusive and private Whitehouse Beach. Traditionally this area is known for its thriving fishing industry (which makes for some pretty extraordinary meals) but has recently created a romantic resort location for couples. This is especially wonderful for newlyweds, who can only expect the best from Whitehouse.

5 Places to Stay

Whitehouse is known first and foremost for its 500-acre reserve owned by the Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa. If you’d prefer, stay in the nearby town of Negril and travel the short distance into Whitehouse for the romantic experience only this settlement can truly offer.

Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa

The incredible Village & Spa of Sandals Whitehouse offers the perfect combination of European style and beachfront tropical accommodation. The resort is home to seven incredible restaurants, three pools, and a variety of activities spread out through three beautiful villages: French, Italian, and Dutch.

Sandals Negril Beach Resort and Spa

On the pure white sands and set against the clear blue waters of Negril is the decadently beautiful Sandals Negril Beach Resort and Spa, which sits less than an hour away from Whitehouse. The resort is on the longest stretch of Jamaica’s famed Seven Mile Beach where you can easily spend your days lounging in the sun before dining at one of the seven world-class restaurants and enjoying their spa services.

Rockhouse Hotel

Perched on the scenic cliffs in Negril, the incredible Rockhouse Hotel is a chic boutique hotel that overlooks the incredible Caribbean Sea. Close enough to Whitehouse to enjoy all the benefits of Jamaica’s luxurious settlement, this hotel ensures couples can indulge in the romance.

5 Places to Visit

Jamaica’s Whitehouse indulges its visitors with top of the line amenities and accommodation, so it’s no surprise the settlement’s most incredible locations are also just as accommodating. Whether you decide to spend your days lounging by the beach or the pool, or would prefer an adventure, Whitehouse offers something for everyone.

Whitehouse Beach

Whitehouse’s prime beach is one of the most relaxing places on the island. Enjoy the many beach lounges and umbrellas, and then take a dip into the beautiful Caribbean Sea. If you’d prefer something with a bit more adrenaline, consider taking a scuba diving lesson with Dive Advisor or rent out water sport equipment from your hotel.

Black River

Black River is the perfect place for a Jamaican tropical paradise. Discover the swamplands and rivers that wind through the area and then stop off at the YA Falls or indulge in the charming Georgian city’s architecture. Book a Black River Safari with Jamaica One Stop Negril to explore the incredible environment in a memorable way.

Dunn’s River Falls

Jamaica’s Dunn’s River Falls is one of the island’s most treasured destinations. The Dunn’s River Falls Park is just as exciting, and offers a delightful discovery at every turn. This waterfall is unlike anything you’ve ever seen – and it was enough to inspire Ian Fleming, James Bond author, to pursue the area as the perfect scene.

Floyd’s Pelican Bar

What once started out as a dream is now literally floating out in the Caribbean Sea, greeting visitors with the ultimate escape – complete with drinks and spectacular views. The wooden bar was built on a sand bank a quarter of a mile out to sea, half way between Black River and Treasure Beach. It’s definitely an area worth exploring, so consider taking a tour with Jamaica Travel and Culture to get out there!

Green Grotto Caves

The Green Grotto Caves are made up of limestone and are covered in incredible giant rock formations, stalactites, and stalagmites. It was once used as a hiding place for pirates in the early days who were running from the Spanish governor. Take a tour and watch out for the swashbucklers!

5 Things to Do

Although Whitehouse is only a small part of Jamaica, it’s not short on things to do. Either spend your day by the pool in your chosen resort, or indulge in the activities they offer. There is the option of activities within the resort, or you can take the opportunity to explore the rest of the island.

Red Lane Spa

Red Lane Spa is a service in both the Sandals and Beaches resorts across Jamaica, so you’re sure to find one right there with you in Whitehouse. The award winning pampering experience provides exclusive comfort with top of the line products. It’s one of those things you need to complete the honeymoon!

Take a tour with Sandals for any number of incredible experiences in Whitehouse or further out of the island. Choose from a variety of adventures, like the Dunn’s River Cruise or Jamaican Sky Explorer. Whatever you choose, Sandals promises that you’re sure to enjoy the beautiful, incredible spirit of Jamaica with your significant other.

Kayak Adventures

Kayaking is one of the many activities available to couples from the resort groups – but the best is with the Sandals group. Whitehouse is home to some of the most extraordinary waters across the world, which is why the resort area is so popular, so indulging in their water sports, like scuba diving and windsurfing, is a must.

Horse Riding Tour

Ever dreamed of living out that movie fantasy of riding a horse on a beach at sunset? Well, with Reggae Horseback Riding that can become a very real reality. This must-do honeymoon experience is something you won’t ever forget – and, as a bonus, you can also experience a horse drawn carriage ride for that extra bit of romance.

Swimming with Dolphins

Is swimming with dolphins on your bucket list? If it isn’t, go ahead and write it down on your list of things to do on your honeymoon, because this is truly one of the best experiences in the world. Dolphin Cove Jamaica is worth the extra travel time for the opportunity to interact with one of the dolphins out in the turquoise waters.

Whitehouse in Jamaica is truly one of the most exciting and extraordinary places in the world. The resort itself is rewarded for its charm and excellence, and it’s almost as amazing as the rest of the settlement, including the famous beaches.
