Think of the most tropical movie set for a Jamaican film you’ve ever imagined and you’ve got Sans Souci (sands soo-see). Sans Souci (“without worry”) is both romantic and sophisticated plus its a favorite with the spa crowd. “Prepare to be spoiled…” is what Caribbean Travel and Life magazine said about Sans Souci in one of its articles about some of the best spa resorts in the entire Caribbean. Sans Souci is only about 5 minutes due east of Ocho Rios, Jamaica and is a fabulous choice for couples, honeymooners and newlyweds alike. All inclusive, adults only, no children.
The resort has just about everything you would want to be spoiled rotten. The all inclusive program includes your air conditioned suite with private bath, all meals, snacks, premium bar drinks, water sports (sailing, Scuba, snorkeling, wind surfing, kayaking, water skiing, three swimming pools, hot tubs, etc), nightly themes, light entertainment, three (3) restaurants, 2 snack bars/grills, organized activities, optional tours off site, optional spa treatments (waxing, manicures, pedicures, wraps, etc.) at Charlie’s spa, 24-hour room service, fitness center, free green frees for golf, free tennis, hotel taxes, tips and service charges.
Spa extra: For repeat guests staying 6 night or longer plus honeymooners and anniversary stays of 6 nights, a complimentary half hour massage is included. All other spa treatments are extra. All spa services and complimentary optional treatments are subject to change without notice.
Tipping is not necessary since it’s included in the price. Your kind words and especially a written recommendation of an employee’s performance you have enjoyed is the most valuable token as anything you can tip.
Introduce yourself to your waiter, bar tender and maid and make them a friend. The junior wait staff are often new or are trainees so they may be a little shy so be friendly. They will often reward you with better than expected service.
NUDE side: All guest rooms are “prude” requiring some type of cover up in and around the hotel. On the separate au natural beach side of the resort, no guest rooms located there but the walk down the lushly tropical path is only about 50-100 meters from building A, so take your “stuff” with you such as sunscreen, beach cover up, sandals, snorkel gear, hat and whatever else you may need and pack them into your beach bag. The nude beach is physically separate from the main beach and includes its own nude Jacuzzi, nude pool, beach bar and grill, with a great view of the Caribbean sea… a super place to be at sundown about 6-630 PM daily with your champagne in your hand.
Theme nights include Caribbean showcase & Carnival fever, Casino night, Friday night celebration and dining on the lawn and more. NOTE: Theme nights and special occasions are subject to change without notice. The above activities may be revised by the entertainment staff occasionally.
There is no disco on site and entertainment nightly usually includes a band or singer with combo or variations thereof. If you enjoy more of a subdued atmosphere, this is the place for you. However, Ocho Rios is just a short, five minute cab ride away, so you can find night life quickly if you want it. An addition to downtown Ocho Rios is the Island Village, a colorful complex and entertainment park near the main street, located in a beautiful cove where you’re near everything.
You cannot go hungry at this resort. Choose from the following for your meals and snacks: Two beach side grills, Casanova French restaurant or the Ristorante Palazzina for breakfast, lunch and dinner, a swim up bar on both the nude side plus room service.
Reservations are required for Casanova. Long pants for the guys and jackets are required for Casanova (NO ties, guys). Make your dinner reservations for Casanova with the concierge.
Some of the finest meals you can have on the island are at Casanova… great for service, presentation and menu selections with a great wine list included. Elegant and romantic, to be sure.
