Luxury Jamaican Resort
Aptly named after the crescent shaped two-mile private beach, Half Moon is the embodiment of classical resort living. Beloved by romantics, sport lovers and families since 1954 when we welcomed our first guests, Half Moon today is considered one of the world’s great resort hotels. 

Our guests and their families are drawn back again and again, lured by the luxury of our 400 acres of landscaped natural beauty, the timeless charm of our whitewashed cottages, the serenity of our Fern Tree Spa and the extraordinary diversity of activities on offer, be it golf, tennis, equestrian and even a Dolphin Lagoon. Add to this inspired culinary creativity from a team of international chefs and hospitality that is quintessentially Jamaican, it is easy to see why for so many Half Moon is a home away from home.
