About Couples Swept Away

Swept Away is one of four boutique  hotels in Jamaica belonging to the Couples Resort chain.  As the name implies, the resort is for couples only.  It is an all-inclusive resort, meaning your room, all meals & snacks, all drinks, and activities are included. The price also includes tips, taxes and gratuities, and some off-resort tours and excursions. 

Suite Accommodations

There are several room categories, both with garden or ocean views.  If you cannot afford an Oceanview or Beachfront suite, I suggest you stay in an  Atrium Suite.  These are simply beautiful rooms tucked away in the lush foliage, with louvered windows  for privacy.  The rooms come complete with air-conditioning, ceiling fans, ipod/mp3 player, coffee maker, personalized mini bar, hair dryer and safety deposit box.

Dining & Drinks

Couples Swept Away offers 5 dining options, all at no extra charge.  However, if you wish a private meal on the beach, you’ll need to make a reservation and pay an extra fee.  There are also several bars located throughout the property, plus a piano bar that is open 5 nights each week.


There is plenty to keep you busy during your stay.  If you enjoy the water, there are 3 swimming pools, 5 Jacuzzis, and of course, the Caribbean Sea.  Kayaks,  sailboats, and water bikes are available, in addition to Scuba diving, snorkeling and windsurfing.

For land activities, visit the 10-acre fitness complex across the street.  You can play tennis, squash, racquetball and basketball, work out in the fully equipped gym, take an aerobics or yoga class, or jog on the outdoor track.

Swept Away is a beautiful resort! The first time I went, I became friends with the soon-tobe-married couple, and was invited to be a part of the wedding. It was breathtaking! I've included photos of the couple from that day.

Thanks for adding it to your tropical wedding site! Much appreciated!
