The Royalton Negril is situated on the most western coast of Jamaica, on a breathtaking beach with crystal clear waters. For heightened luxury for adults, consider booking your stay at The Hideaway, a resort within a resort, with adults-only rooms, pools, and bars. There are many wedding venues available, from the sky terrace to the oceanfront gazebo, with an archway that literally frames the sunset for late afternoon ceremonies. Smaller wedding parties will love the overwater pier, where the soundtrack to your wedding will be the lapping waters. Beyond your ceremony, guests will enjoy access to contemporary restaurants and chic pools to relax at.
For those seeking a resort with more boutique-like vibes, look no further than Sunset at the Palms. The small resort offers 85 treehouse inspired rooms and is perfect for more intimate wedding ceremonies. We advise booking long in advance because occupancy can sell out quickly. Your ceremony could be situated along iconic Bloody Bay or the Tropical Gardens where you’ll be surrounded by lush fauna. Across the resort, guests will enjoy a soothing environment, with a custom experience, and rich chef specialties to explore.
The RIU ClubHotel Negril is a Jamaican resort that would make for a spectacular destination wedding, with a beach that overlooks Bloody Bay. Trees lead directly up to the water, and there’s plenty of spots to enjoy the sun at the expansive pool complex. The resort tends to draw in younger crowds, and there’s a fun party atmosphere for much of the day and during the night too. After your wedding ceremony, at the beach or gazebo, enjoy a reception at one of the many a-la-carte restaurants, and take a day to explore downtown Negril or to venture off for an excursion.
Located on world-famous Seven Mile Beach, the AZUL Beach Resort Negril, guests will enjoy a resort tailored to intimacy and mellow vibes, perhaps taken from the local island culture.

A destination wedding here will be unforgettable, especially if you book the Sky Wedding Deck, featuring panoramic views of the Caribbean ocean.
