Every Thanksgiving, my family and I gather to travel abroad. We escape the potential thought of meeting family scattered across the nation as we continue flying to Jamaica every year.
Last year, we scheduled a trip to celebrate my parent’s anniversary at the new Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall. Due to a delayed opening, we instead made route to Secrets St. James (I have nothing to complain it’s a great resort) and rescheduled our visit to this year.
It’s my second visit to the property, which previously was owned by the Ritz Carlton. The renovations embody the Hyatt brand and name. It’s contemporary and scenic with a white-sand beach (an amenity the Ritz lacked).
More than 11 restaurants fill the property ranging from buffet-style meals, Asian inspired yakitori and even a Brazilian steakhouse.
The best feature though is the all-inclusive meals where waiters never expect tips. Guests can enjoy all-you-can-drink mimosas in the morning and cocktails at night. The freshest juices are squeezed for morning refreshments and top-shelf liquors are used all night.
The perfect cover-up dress: my oversized Dimepiece LA Minnie Mouse tee. It’s easy to throw on and appropriate for a quick sit-down lunch. I threw on my Toyshades from Topshop; check out the whole collection. The sunglasses company offers affordable, quality glasses perfect for the beach.
