There are many reasons to visit a destination in the off season. There are smaller crowds, shorter lines, and hotel prices are most likely less expensive.
Sometimes though, traveling in the off season means that you will also have less activities and excitement than during peak periods when there are crowds.
That is not the case at of Sunset at the Palms. The resort, which is well known for creating “Sensory Magic” for all its guests, has named this Summer’s celebration as Jamaica-Rama! Visitors can use all of their senses to explore the island paradise.
Visitors can start the day with a massage or a game of tennis, and end the day with a choice of movies in the pool or viewing the sunset from the beach at Bloody Bay.
There are scheduled parties throughout the week. There are special theme nights in the restaurants, cooking classes with our Chef, and mixology classes in the bar.
We will tickle and entice your senses. Guests can smell the tropical flowers that line the walkways of a resort that respects nature and incorporates it into its guest experience. They get in touch with island elements like coconut oil, Blue Mountain coffee grounds and Jamaican brown sugar through the Ginger Lily Spa’s relaxing treatments. And they taste the distinctive flavors of Jamaica, from the not-so-subtle kick of jerk chicken to the sticky-sweet fruits they’d never even heard of before they arrived and discovered them on their breakfast plate.
And that’s what Jamaica-Rama! is all about. Many of the resort’s guests come to celebrate a wedding, anniversary, graduation or milestone birthday, but Sunset at the Palms encourages everyone to arrive with celebration in mind … even if it’s simply acknowledging the fine art of total relaxation in a stress-free environment.
So … though guests are encouraged to do a lot of nothing around here, each day the resort presents a new way for them to celebrate what makes Jamaica special. There’s a Sunset Celebration on Monday nights, when guests and staff gather to watch the sun dip into the bay. Wednesday afternoons are Mixology Class, where Sunset at the Palms’ talented bartenders demonstrate how to incorporate local produce, ginger and the ever-popular Appleton rum into beverages while guests eagerly volunteer to taste these concoctions. Thursday nights will introduce an all-new “dive-in” movie concept, with Jamaican-themed movies or films made in Jamaica – think Cool Runnings, Cocktail or Dr. No – showing while guests bob in or enjoy a drink around the resort’s very welcoming pool.
