Staying at all-inclusive resorts can be pretty expensive, especially those offering a luxurious experience. With the amount of money you will be potentially spending, I am sure you expect to be treated as a celebrity.

So, to ensure you get the treatment you deserve, why not choose from resorts that celebrities frequent the most? Here are 5, just in case you are not quite sure where to start looking.

1. Geejam Hotel

You can discover the ideal lodging for just you or for your travel party among the 12 rooms, 4 cabins, and 3 villas. The food served at Geejam is as regional as it gets since it is made using the chef's secret family recipes. Right on the shore, a tavern and grill are serving equally great meals.

You can spend a relaxing or exciting day at the pool or beach in a cabana after stuffing yourself with some of the tastiest food. They also provide water sports like kayaking and snorkelling. Don't worry if you still need to work out while on vacation; you may go to the on-site fitness centre.

The Geejam, which is situated on a desolate mountaintop, has drawn famous visitors like John Legend, Drake, Grace Jones, Bjork, and Gwen Stefani, though the hip crowd has gradually diminished since the resort went public in March 2008. It even served as a recording artists' private retreat.

2. Half Moon

Since 1954, there has been a Half Moon resort in Rose Hall, Montego Bay. It has been recognized as one of the top golf resorts in the world, so if you like to play golf, this is the place for you! If you're travelling alone, with your partner, or family, this is a terrific option because there are enjoyable activities for all age groups here.

The Rosehall villas are a part of the Half Moon offered accommodation which gives guests the feeling of a home away from home. You may choose from the 5, 6, or 7-bedroom villas.

Former guests of the resort include Queen Elizabeth I, JFK and Jacqueline Kennedy, Joan Crawford, Clark Gable, and George H.W. Bush. Eddie Murphy, Lil Wayne, LL Cool J and 50 Cent also stayed here.

3. Round Hill Hotel and Villas


One of the most exclusive Jamaican resorts is known as Round Hill. Over the years, many famous people and royals have visited them, and they continue to be a popular vacation spot for many people from the upper class.

The unplugged, off-the-grid property served as the backdrop for the movie How Stella Got Her Groove Back, and actor Taye Diggs returned there to wed Broadway actress Idina Menzel. Dule Hill, of the West Wing and Psych fame, married actress Nicole Lyn on the same property.

According to reports, Stevie Wonder enjoys vacationing at the resort as well. You will have 26 luxurious villas to choose from for accommodation purposes; classic, estate and signature villas. Here are some of the amenities that each villa offers:

  • Private pool surrounded by lush, secluded tropical landscaping
  • Open-air living spaces with bedrooms that may be closed off and air-conditioned
  • Made-to-order breakfast prepared in the villa each morning (surcharge applies)
  • Dedicated villa staff
  • Pillow menu: Bed Rest, Snore Stopper, Maternity, Down and Feather
  • Elemis bath products (Round Hill branded products in summer)
  • In-room tablet
  • Wi-Fi & iPod-docking stations
  • Blow dryer in bathroom

4. Rockhouse Negril

Located on cliffs with a view of the Caribbean Sea. The vibrant rooms have stone flooring, outside lounging areas, canopy beds, minibars, and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Upgraded accommodations come with extras like private outdoor showers and views of the garden or ocean. The cosy cottages have thatched roofs, wraparound balconies, and iPod docks; some are waterfront. There are three eateries, several of which have an ocean view.

Additional amenities include a juice bar, a spa, yoga, tours, cooking classes, and a juice bar. Snorkelling equipment can be rented. Stars including Bella Hadid, Jude Law, Keri Russell, Nanette Lepore, and retired boxer Lennox Lewis use this hotel in the winter as a tranquil retreat.

According to rumours, Mad Men actor John Slattery stays at this hotel every year.

5. Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall

This resort in Montego Bay is an excellent choice for luxury family vacations. They offer a variety of enjoyable activities that the whole family may enjoy. Take advantage of family dance lessons or watch cookery demos presented by chefs.

Shuffle, beach volleyball, water ping pong, corn hole, and other games are available as well. You may also enjoy theoretical performances with your family. For children aged 3 to 12, a kids club is also provided, where they may participate in arts and crafts projects, beach sports, and other activities during the day and in pyjama or disco parties at night.

The teenagers also have a club of their own where they may socialise with people of a similar age and play video games, foosball, and air hockey.

In March 2008, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz visited this location with Pete, a member of Fall Out Boy. Lawrence Taylor, Michael Jordan, and Kanye West have all attended a celebrity golf outing at the hotel.

These resorts have had the most reported celebrity visitors but other resorts such as Jamaica Inn, Trident Hotel and Tryall Club have also seen numerous celebrities.

It is important to note, that some of these resorts are all-inclusive, while others like Half Moon and Round Hill offer all-inclusive packages.
