Packing Light is Easy 

The frustrating thing about a winter vacation anywhere else can be the need to pack heavy and bulky clothing and boots, increasing the amount of luggage you may need to carry. Your Negril trip, however, will prove to be anything but frustrating as you only need to pack the smallest and lightest items of clothing. Warm temperatures year-round ensure that shorts, tee shirts, swimsuits, and flip flops and / or water shoes take up very little room. Will you need a pair of tennis or hiking shoes for your walks and hikes? It is probably for the best, but we suggest you simply wear the correct shoes during your travels. Although Jamaica is casual, there are some nicer restaurants so you may want to pack at least one dress outfit if you are planning to enjoy an elegant evening out. 

What’s in Your Room? 

Needing to know what is in your cottage or room will make it easier to cut things from your packing list and our cottages and suites do provide a lot of the extras. Hair dryers, of course, are standard, and in many suites, fluffy robes will be offered for your use. Each room offers a cell phone that can be used for local AND international calls, negating the need for guests to incur extra expenses on their own phones. We also provide basic toiletries, complimentary water, and hypo-allergenic bed linens, so if you suffer from skin sensitivities, you won’t need to consider packing your own. 

Other Things to Consider 

The sun shines bright in Jamaica making sunscreen and sunglasses a requirement and if you are planning on spending a lot of time hiking and exploring the natural landscape, you might want to consider packing a hat. Towels are provided at the resort, and chairs surround our pools, so you can plan on leaving most beach gear behind, especially as it can be bulky, and a lot may be able to be rented during your stay. Be sure to pack any necessary prescription medications, don’t forget your passport, and because you will need to fill out some immigration forms when you first arrive in the country, consider stashing a pen with blue or black ink somewhere you can easily find it.
