Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall

Montego Bay, Jamaica

With an enviable beachside location within the historic Rose Hall estate (a former sugarcane plantation), Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall is a romantic all-inclusive retreat, shrouded by luscious palm trees and backed by the Blue Mountain ridge. Sophisticated and chic, this adult-only property provides a refuge from the hustle of the outside world. Its sprawling grounds of verdant tropical flora work in harmony with the stylish and contemporary decor of whitewashed walls and a soothing neutral palette.

Accommodation options vary from standard rooms through to suites, but all are generously sized and have private terraces with views over the resort or the Caribbean Sea.

You can head down to the white-sand beach to swim among the coves and try out a variety of water sports. Or, in-land, take a dip in the lagoon-style swimming pool, relax at the Zen Spa with holistic and invigorating treatments, and try the property’s varied food and drink options.
