Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa
The 5-star Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa offers beachside elegance for the entire family, just under a 50-minute drive from thriving Montego Bay. Facilities available across the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa include everything from a spa and wellness centre to a theatre, multiple outdoor swimming pools and a kids’ water park - not to mention seven on-site restaurants that covers cuisine from all corners of the globe. The palatial Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa is stylishly designed with modern features and luxurious accessories; each room contains a hydromassage bathtub as well as a private terrace or balcony for guests to soak up the year-round Jamaican sunshine.
Found on the north west coast of Jamaica, the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa gives guests the best of both worlds. Its ocean-front position means guests can virtually roll out of their suite and into the idyllic blue sea. However, it’s also a 15-minute drive from the coastal town of Lucea, and a 48-minute drive onto bustling Montego Bay, meaning there’s plenty to explore beyond the resort itself. As well as popular white-sand beaches and Aqua Sol Theme Park, Montego Bay is also home to shopping centres and local restaurants. In the opposite direction, guests can reach the coastal area of Negril within a one-hour drive; this town is famed for its miles of sandy beaches and snorkelling opportunities.
There are 512 guest suites available at the resort, each luxuriously designed in keeping with the 5-star rating and the hotel’s beachfront location. All of the suites feature amenities such as one king-size bed or two double beds, plus air conditioning, sofa, tea and coffee making facilities, iPod docking station and satellite TV. Furnished balconies look out onto either the sea, garden or pool, and the en-suite bathroom includes a toilet, shower and hydromassage bathtub. The Standard Suites have all of the same facilities as the Junior Suites, but they also feature a separate lounge area. Villa suites offer an extra dose of luxury with an indoor jacuzzi and a private outdoor shower.
Food and Drink
With a variety of buffet and a la carte restaurants to sample, guests can visit a different culinary destination each day of the week. Dining is available in the evenings at restaurants specialising in Mexican, Jamaican, Mediterranean, Italian, Indian, American and Asian cuisine, ensuring there’s something to suit all types of foodies. Three of the buffet restaurants host guests for a brimming breakfast from 7am, while themed dinners are offered in the evenings. For daytime refreshments and evening tipples, the resort boasts five bars; there’s everything from Miss Lou, with its colonial-style decor and laid back daytime vibes - to the Sports Bar. Don’t forget to try out the Blue Lagoon swim-up bar, located in the main pool, for a variety of alcoholic and soft drinks.
Sports, Games and Entertainment
There’s something for big and little kids at Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa, from the colourful mini slides of the on-site children’s water park to the variety of wellness treatments available in the wellness centre. Activities take place throughout the day for guests to get to grips with, including kayaking, deep sea fishing and games within the main pool. Plus, those with a competitive eye can work up a sweat with friends on one of the volleyball, tennis or basketball courts. When the evening swings around, kids can enjoy a mini disco and show, while adults can step into the theatre or nightclub.
