Girls’ Trip Goals: Half Moon Resort Jamaica

by Erin Davis

The only thing better than a trip to the easy, breezy island of Jamaica is a trip to Jamaica with your girlfriends. While there’s a time and place for a more indulgent girls’ trip, a wellness-filled Jamaican vacation – one that involves everything from golf to yoga and spa days – facilitates a deep sense of bonding and togetherness with the leading ladies in your life. 

If this sounds like just what you and your nearest and dearest girlfriends need (along with some indulging, of course), Half Moon Resort Jamaica is a picture-perfect option. “With our three distinctive resort experiences – Founders Cove, Eclipse and Rose Hall Villas – HalfMoon offers a welcoming space of belonging where our guests are invited to discover who they are, and embrace who they could become,” says Laura Redpath, HalfMoon’s Brand Marketing & Communications Directory.  

Located in the unforgettable Montego Bay area, the serene resort is framed by the turquoise Caribbean Sea to the north and the lush rolling hillsides to the south. The 400-acre property houses 210 rooms and suites, plus 19 luxurious villas, all with easy access to a pristine, two-mile stretch of photo-worthy beachfront. Notably, the resort takes the spa experience to the next level, with their dreamy overwater bungalows as the cherry on top to their pristine spa and wellness amenities. Here, guests can enjoy relaxing massages, yoga, and meditation complete with unimpeded views of the Caribbean seascape and horizon and a reliable gentle breeze. Sigh.

You and the ladies can enjoy water sports, tennis, squash, yoga and fitness classes (private group options are available), and cycling excursions. Uniquely, the resort also features the Half Moon Equestrian Centre. If the sea views and yoga sessions aren’t soul-soothing enough, the resort’s beautiful horses add to the sense of wellbeing that resonates through the property. 

A variety of daily activities include everything from beach volleyball and sand badminton, to botanical tours and a floral arrangement class. 

Half Moon’s ‘Better With Friends‘ package offers a perk-filled way to make the most out of a girls’ trip. It includes a daily breakfast for two guests per room; a choice between a 60-minute spa and wellness experience complemented by natural cold-pressed juices from the resort’s vegan café or a round of 18 holes on the resort’s championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr.; a $100 credit per stay towards any activity or event; round-trip airport transfers, and a complimentary assortment of mini-bar beverages and a bottle of rosé (because it’s all about balance). Laura points out that, “whether traveling with the best of friends, solo or family, your days are yours to design thanks to the luxury of space, privacy and award-winning amenities, enhanced by our warm Jamaican hospitality.”

Now, all you have to do is find a date that works with everyone’s calendars.
