Half Moon, Montego Bay

Inspired by a crescent-shaped private beach, offering perfect sunset after perfect sunrise, Half Moon offers a Jamaican dream for every kind of adventurer. Famed for its prestigious crowd, this resort really is fit for a queen (it is after all the favourite Jamaican hangout of Queen Elizabeth). Boasting a plethora of facilities, one moment you’ll be on a Caribbean fairway putting the 18th hole and, the next, swimming with stallions in the ocean; there is plenty to do on this luxurious Jamaican getaway.


Ever thought your luxury escape could begin before you’ve even arrived? Drop your bags at the Half Moon Airport Lounge at Sangster International Airport and be greeted by your very own charming concierge, ready to escort you to your private car. Within 10 minutes you will have arrived at your Half Moon haven, a resort infused with the infectious relaxed and friendly Jamaican culture. Overlooking the Half Moon beach, the golden sands are shaded by the bending palms and the waters fade from clear to aquamarine.

Your Room

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing your abode, as each room, suite or cottage is elegantly and individually designed, meaning no two are the same.  So take your pick and discover rooms adorned with paintings, hand-woven rugs, lined bookshelves and, in some cases, even grand pianos. With decor like this, it’s easy to see how Half Moon stole the hearts of the Windsor Family – particularly if you bag Cottage 1 (but shh, we didn’t tell you that). Complete with airy drawing rooms, perfect for taking afternoon tea, and you’ve got yourself the perfect place to pass the days.

Why we like it

While the incredible suites on Sunset Beach can make it hard to ever step outside, it is the choice of adventures on the doorstep that makes Half Moon a Black Tomato favourite. We can’t think of a better way to take in the unspoilt beauty the island has to offer than on a horseback ride, trotting through the azure waters of Sunrise Beach, before wading in to swim alongside these graceful creatures.
