If you’ve ever dreamed of marrying in a quaint, lovely village that just happens to be located on a beautiful private beach in Jamaica, then you should check out the all-inclusive Meliá Braco Village in Trelawny. Forty-five minutes from Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport, Meliá is a 232-room property, including 52 suites, with garden or beach views and a new VIP area called THE LEVEL that provides concierge services, its own restaurant, and a bridal suite. All of this is built around Melia’s cobblestone “village” — a colorful amalgam of Colonial-style buildings in a mini town with its own convenience store, gym, spa, restaurants, pools and a bar.
It’s the charm, color, and uniqueness of the place that might sway brides to have their weddings here. Two gazebos, one overlooking the ocean and one in the property’s lush garden area, are a romantic setting for couples to exchange their vows, or if you’re a toe-in-the-sand sort of pair, a few locations directly on the beach can be arranged. Indoor options include the sleek, cool Romance by Meliá Bridal Suite. Working with the property’s Romance Specialist, brides and their wedding parties can use the suite to plan, get ready, organize makeup and hair and even arrange a wedding dress if your decision happens to be spontaneous. The suite includes a large dressing room with makeup and hair stations, display wardrobes and a fitting room with a pedestal and wall mirrors. It’s the ultimate in a glamorous, sophisticated destination wedding experience. Wedding packages vary from $799-7,000.
Rooms come with plush bathrobes and slippers, coffee machines, minibars are restocked daily, iron, ironing board, hairdryer, electronic safe, 42-inch Flat Screen TV, high-speed WiFi internet and 24-hour room service. At THE LEVEL expect a VIP Level Lounge featuring private check-in service and light bites throughout the day or eat something more substantial at the beachside Golden Sand restaurant. If you need anything, take advantage of THE LEVEL’s personalized concierge service, and use their private pool and beach areas, complimentary babysitting services, tennis lessons, private transfers to and from the airport and premium alcohol service.
On property get a spa treatment in the signature YHI Spa (with a masseuse from Thailand to give you an authentic Thai massage), work out at the on site fitness center open 24 hours a day, have fun at their very own Disco open until 2am, and play at the on-property Adventure Park, featuring a strength and agility obstacle course, zip line over tropical forestry, a four-lane 35 ft. rock wall and four bungee trampolines.
For the business traveler, Meliá Braco Village has a business center in THE LEVEL, WiFi in public spaces, and designated rooms for meetings and events with capacity for up to 400 people.
Meliá Braco Village recently won several awards including “All-Inclusive Luxury Resort of the Year 2017 for the Americas” by the Luxury Travel Awards’ and “Caribbean’s Leading Luxury Resort 2017″ by World Travel Awards.
