I recently traveled to Jamaica for an amazing family trip that I’m still thinking about daily. It was a gorgeous vacation, filled with vibrant colors, turquoise blue waters and warm, friendly people. We stayed at the beautiful Tryall Club in a house overlooking the vast greenery of Jamaica and all of the stunning views the country has to offer.
The house was absolutely perfect for 12 people. It was spacious enough where it felt as though everyone had their own space and alone time if you wanted it. We had a gorgeous pool overlooking the sea where we spent a lot of our days together just laughing and catching up. Every morning, we’d wake up in our tropical green and brown rooms looking out at a view of trees which almost reminded me a bit of the movie Jurassic Park.
We had a chef at the house that cooked a variety of simple, local foods including vegetables, rice, and protein filled with Jamaican spices. Every night, there were fun decorative napkins waiting for us at dinner which I wish I had learned how to do!
The rum punches and cocktails were a must have which we treated ourselves to on most nights. The location of the beach from the house was right down the street which was perfect to get to with the golf carts the house had so we could come and go as we pleased. The decor of the island was very british colonial which I thought was beautiful. There was a touch of old world and elegance in every room you walked into.
Beach trips are my favorite to pack for because I know that as long as I have a few bathing suits, a variety of cover ups, short & long dresses then I’m set to go. A perfect sun hat is also the only accessory needed all week. Here are a few of my outfits from the trip!
Family time is precious, especially as we get older, so this trip was really special. Jamaica was the perfect mix of relaxing on the beach and fun day activities like zip lining and catamaran rides. This will be a vacation I will always remember.
