“Would you care for a glass of champagne?” are the words of welcome at Couples Swept Away in Negril. Here, on the idyllic isle of Jamaica, a bubbly toast is only the beginning. Guests are treated like royalty throughout their stay at this all-inclusive resort that knows how to pamper and please, happily catering to every need.

Tucked in the lush greenery of the land, surrounded by the scenic splendor of the seashore, Swept Away is a heavenly hideaway for honeymooners – and anyone else who wants to get away from it all. Luxurious suites bring the outdoors in with breezy verandahs and breathtaking views. Hammocks hang in waiting; chaise longues beckon. Paradise found, indeed.

The days unfurl like a dream. Wake up to breakfast in bed, sipping the perfect cup of coffee in a sanctuary of exotic blooms and chirping birds. Feast on fresh fruits alfresco. Or hit the buffet after a sunrise session of Pilates on the beach.

Activities and amusements are abundant. Spend the afternoon snorkeling, sailing, swimming or windsurfing. Walk barefoot in the sand or take a dip in the pool. Marvel at the true beauty of this sparkling gem on a sunset cruise.

Learn how to speak in the native tongue with a language class or add a little spice to the table with a cooking course. For souvenirs, peruse the gallery of arts and crafts made by the Jamaican people.

Want to relax? Unwind with a body wrap, mineral scrub or massage for two at the Swept Away spa. Or work out at the resort’s fully-equipped gym. Just across the street, there’s more in store at the 10-acre sports and fitness complex, housing a lap pool, tennis and basketball courts, steam rooms and saunas. Lessons, classes and spa services are a phone call away.

Dining is divine, each meal a fantastic journey of Caribbean-flavored food, with one taste-tempting dish after another. The resort features a main dining area and specialty restaurants, offering a casual atmosphere for those who like to dress down and a fancier setting for those who prefer dressing up.

What could be more romantic than having a great meal while watching the sun set and hearing the waves crash onto the shore? After dinner, stroll hand-in-hand down the beach or dance the night away with soulful reggae music. Just imagine: no schedules, no deadlines, no worries. Couples Swept Away turns fantasies into reality for the vacation of a lifetime.
