'Tis the season to be jolly with the one you love. So why not say I love you this Valentine's Day by celebrating them in fine style. Here is a line-up on places to go for the upcoming weekend of love.


Eden Garden's



Season of Love


Under the theme, Season of Love, Eden Garden's weekend line-up includes Selfie Love on Friday, February 12; Serenade Starlight Dinner on Saturday, February 13 and Red Wine Romance Brunch on Valentine's Day, Sunday, February 14:

Selfie Love ... Let's Celebrate Party functions as a self-love pampering party so to speak, breaking away from the customs of the traditional Valentine's Day of expecting from or giving a gift to someone special. The night includes a Happy Hour, a SkyBox featuring the DJ, prizes and surprises and 50 per cent off spa service.

Serenade Starlight Dinner will take place in Eden's rooftop garden, buffet style, featuring the finest gourmet food, such as seafood bisque, tomato bruschetta, cranberry glazed pork chops, pimento

lamb chops, grilled salmon with watermelon chutney, red onion garlic shrimp, strawberry cheesecake square and so much more. Customers will be able to enjoy all they can eat with a complimentary first glass of wine for the female. And for your entertaining pleasure, live acoustic performance will come from Jamaica's Songbird Sensation Shanique "GiRL" Brown and DJ David, (el jefe).

Red Wine Romance Brunch: Imagine a wide array of brunch items perfectly paired with wines. The entertainment for this event will feature a fashion show of girls dressed in foxy red outfits posing in human size wine glasses and flutes, and a reggae orchestra playing the finest Jamaican reggae love music.


Strawberry Hill's



Dream Day and



Sky High Dinner


Strawberry Hill has set up a dream day just for you and yours. After all, it is the day of love. As part of the season, Strawberry is offering an option of a Valentine's Brunch, which includes its signature Strawberry Bliss cocktail. Or, a brunch and couples massage, which encourages couples to indulge in a relaxing massage courtesy of the spa, followed by a delectable brunch. Reservation is required.

They also invite you to take back the night and celebrate the season with them 3,100 feet high, closer to the stars. Couples and friends can expect the ultimate three course dining experience, which include a welcome drink (glass of sparkling wine). This deal will be available for both Saturday, the 13th and Sunday, the 14th of February.


Half Moon Spa



and Dinner


Half Moon is encouraging lovers to relax at its award-winning Fern Tree Spa with couple's Swedish massage. Spa treatment rooms have private gardens, allowing guests the option of having their room enclosed or open to their own garden terrace. Additionally, two overwater spa bungalows that open out to the sea are the ultimate in peaceful relaxation. Guests are encouraged to linger, enjoying the indoor and outdoor relaxation areas, yoga pavilion, meditation labyrinth, lagoon swimming pool, hydrotherapy pool, sauna and steam rooms. The Fern Tree Spa offers additional treatments such as reflexology, sports massages and aromatherapy treatments. You can check them out for the entire weekend.

Then they invite you to join them in the night for dinner at the Sugar Mill Restaurant, which recently reopened with a new menu. Nestled in an alcove next to a centuries-old water mill, the restaurant is helmed by Chef de Cuisine Christopher Golding and now serves Wagyu beef, known for its distinctive flavour and tenderness perfected by a charcoal cooking technique via Jamaica's only Jasper charcoal broiler oven. Choose options from the exciting menu, or from a prix-fixe Valentine's Day menu, featuring options such as Lemongrass Marinated Lobster Timbale with Smoked Tomato Jelly Avocado, Sour Cream and Cassava, and Double Chocolate Tia Maria Cake with Blue Mountain Coffee Mousse, Lychee Compote and Raspberry Coulis.
