The Couples Resorts chain has reason to celebrate. For the second year running, all four Couples Resorts properties are ranked on Travel + Leisure's Top 25 World's Best List for resorts in the Caribbean.
These are Couples Tower Isle and Couples Sans Souci, both in St Mary; and Couples Swept Away and Couples Negril, both in Negril, Westmoreland.
This makes Couples the first all-inclusive resort chain to have all its properties listed in the prestigious magazine's top 25 list for two years running.
The recently refurbished and renamed Couples Tower Isle (formerly Couples Ocho Rios) comes out best of the four, being ranked at number four. It leads Couples Swept Away and Couples Sans Souci in the top 10, the two being ranked fifth and sixth, respectively, while Couples Negril is ranked 19th.
Additionally, the Swept Away and Negril properties are making the list for the fourth consecutive year. Tower Isle and Sans Souci are on the list for two years running.
For specialised services, there is also great news for three of the properties: Sans Souci, Negril and Swept Away. Thousands of travellers have ranked the hotels first, second and third, respectively, on the World's Best Spa, as listed by Travel + Leisure.
The latest news comes just a month after all four properties made the World's Best Service list, announced by Travel + Leisure in July.
Dubbed the Caribbean's most inclusive all-inclusive, all Couples resorts include a wide array of services, including beachfront locations, water sports, swim-up pool bars, Wi-Fi and Internet cafes, cooking and dance classes, among other entertainment options.
