Tropical gardens and a private beach are part of the picture at Couples Tower Isle – an adults-only retreat where peaceful surroundings are a given.
Peace and quiet is the mantra at the Couples Tower Isle. This adults-only hotel is surrounded by tropical palm gardens laced with pathways that lead to a private sandy beach.
When it comes to luxurious extras, the clue’s in the name – the Couples Tower Isle has its own naturist-friendly island. The sea-view suite rooms and swish spa underline its 5-star status.
A few steps from the beach are the swimming pools. There are two of them here, and they’re both sea-facing for the best views. They come with built-in whirlpool baths and one has a swim-up bar, too.
If you prefer an all-over tan, you can visit the naturist pool and sun deck on the tiny private island just offshore. The hotel boat will shuttle you there in minutes.
FOOD & DRINK
A buffet restaurant serves international dishes at breakfast and lunch, before switching to Mediterranean fare in the evening. And three à la cartes span Caribbean, Asian and Jamaican cuisines.
The sandy beach is home to the Veggie Bar, which serves fruit smoothies and healthy snacks just metres from the sunbeds.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
A long roll call of watersports catalogues everything from kayaking and windsurfing to glass bottom boat trips and scuba diving lessons.
Themed events, including lively beach parties and al fresco film nights, are held near-nightly.
Reggae, rock and roll, and steel drum bands make up the evening entertainment programme. Meanwhile, the piano bar lays on sing-alongs to classic tunes – usually with a Fifties Hollywood theme.
HEALTH & BEAUTY
American Express magazine, Travel+Leisure, named the Couples Tower Isle’s spa the best in the Caribbean. Expert massage artists offer things like soothing body wraps, as well as taster lessons.
Exercise classes like yoga and pilates are conducted by the experts in the fitness centre. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame the whole gym, so rooms come with pool and sea views.
There's a good variety of choice here. There's doubles, with deluxe and superior upgrades available. And for that extra space, both suites and junior suites come with a lounge area. All rooms include a balcony or a terrace, with some offering a sea view. Plus, air-conditioning is provided.
