Dubbed the Fairest Isle, Jamaica has long been the ultimate destination for celebrating joie de vivre. Powdery white sand beaches, lush tropical foliage and breathtaking vistas provided the perfect repose for Ian Fleming to create his James Bond masterpieces, Errol Flynn to rejuvenate and Johnny Cash to find perfect repose during his epic career. Awash with picturesque attractions like the awe inspiring Dunns River Falls, Green Grotto Caves and renowned Rose Hall Great House.
Amidst all this splendor is the legendary Half Moon, a stunning beachfront location combining old world charm with modern touches. Attracting discerning travellers for over 50 years, Half Moon is the premier Caribbean location for meetings, events and incentives. A mere 15 minutes from the newly upgraded world class Sangster International Airport and private jet centre, Half Moon is a Caribbean resort as you've always imagined it. Boasting 400 lush tropical acres, Half Moon is artfully designed to offer an abundance of recreational activities, dramatic outdoor venues and varied accommodations woven amidst luxuriant gardens and stunning beachfront.
With a cadre of 800 staff providing genuine hospitality and impeccable service, Half Moon has gained an enviable reputation, earning the resort such accolades as: the four diamond AAA for over 20 years – the only resort in the Caribbean to have done so, Travel + Leisure's 500 Best Resorts of the World, Meetings and Conventions Gold Tee Award, Corporate Meetings & Incentives Paragon Awards and many others in recognition of exceeding industry standards.
With opulent rooms, suites and fully staffed villas, Half Moon is ideal for groups of all kinds. Accommodations have an air of elegant informality with a blend of native island style. Furnishings are Queen Anne and Chippendale reproductions, made at the resort by local craftsmen in Jamaican mahogany and highlighted by coordinated prints; the plantation-style buildings lend a cool, crisp touch to the lush green of the lawns and tropical gardens. Moreover, groups can take advantage of convenient meal plans like the Platinum Plan. Along with unparalleled accommodations, Half Moon has over 26,000 square feet of flexible meeting space and is always wired for business. The resort has a full service business centre and on-site audiovisual facility, high speed internet and other services that make executing your meeting hassle free. Also, under US law, off-shore meetings at the resort are tax deductible. What's more boredom is simply not an option at Half Moon. Golf at our newly renovated 18 hole golf course, swim on horseback into the sea, indulge in a swim encounter with the dolphins, soar into the sky on a parasail or plunge into the kaleidoscopic depths of the ocean snorkeling or diving – and reconcile body and mind at the brand new spa oasis, Fern Tree, The Spa at Half Moon. For culinary delights, Half Moon's six restaurants and eight bars provide an exquisite gastronomic experience that will please any palate.
