We’re thrilled to announce that our three oceanfront luxury resorts will reopen on July 1, 2020! These last few months have taught us many things, but the most important thing we’ve learned is that we’re better when we’re together.

We thrive on the energy and excitement of our guests, and live for the moments we can surprise and delight you - whether it’s breakfast in bed, a round of golf, an island excursion, or simply a romantic candlelit dinner. We can’t wait to welcome you back soon!

From enhanced cleaning procedures to once-in-a-lifetime offers, we’ve been busy preparing for your return. 

1. To receive the government-required Travel Authorization, submit a Non Resident Online Application up to 5 days prior to arrival, but no less than 2 days prior to travel.

2. All persons visiting Jamaica who are residents of the United States of America (USA), Brazil, Dominican Republic or Mexico, will be required to obtain either a COVID-19 RT-PCR or antigen test no more than 10 days prior to their intended date of travel.

The test date is considered to be day 1 and intended travel date should be no later than day 10*. Travelers will be required to present the test results as well as the travel authorization at the airport upon check-in.

For additional details on testing guidelines, accreditation and to upload the test for your Travel Authorization application, please refer to the Jamaican Tourism Board.

3. You’ve likely heard that, beginning January 26, 2021, U.S. residents traveling internationally will be required to obtain a negative COVID-19 test prior to re-entry. Rest assured, Negril's Idle Awhile Resorts will provide free rapid antigen testing to guests who book a minimum stay of 5 nights, with little to no interruption to their stay (conditions apply).

Testing will be conducted on property by a contracted medical provider within three days of departure.

On behalf of our entire team, we can’t wait to welcome you back!

Sincere Regards,
Tanya Allen

General Manager
