Our last full day in Jamaica started with breakfast served to our villa followed by spa treatments at the Kiyara Spa. The spa features three outdoor massage areas that resemble a tree house. Once again, I had an incredible view of the water and fell asleep as the sound of the water put me in a trance.
After spa treatments, we met at the beachside bar for drinks (the special that day was the Dirty Banana) and we boarded our boat “For Your Eyes Only” and cruised down the coastline to Caliente Restaurant on Mamee Bay Beach for lunch and (of course) more drinks! Lunch was terrific and we all enjoyed watching Marc ride the waves on the boat ride home. Many thanks to Mary for setting this up for us! After a few more hours (and celeb sightings) on the beach, we met at Mary’s house for drinks and appetizers. She had invited an array of guests, so it was nice to meet some new people and hear how passionate they are about Jamaica Inn. For our last meal in Jamaica, we had dinner on the beach. Toasts were made and the drinks kept flowing as we reminisced about the trip and had some entertainment provided by a fellow beach goer. I turned in early due to my early morning flight, but it was sad to say goodbye to my great group of travel companions and the hospitality of Jamaica itself.
Many thanks to Round Hill Hotel & Villas, Jamaica Inn and The Brandman Agency for hosting such a wonderful trip to amazing properties with exceptional people.
