Couples looking to travel solo rather than on a family trip this winter may want to consider Couples Sans Souci in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, which is on track to complete a $12 million renovation. The resort, one of the brand’s four all-inclusive luxury oceanfront resorts, will complete the refresh by Dec. 1, including a new restaurant, upgraded spa facilities and public spaces, and a variety of suite enhancements.

“In virtually every respect, the resort will be new,” said Abe Issa, president of Sales & Marketing, Couples Resorts. “We’ve taken exceptional care to ensure that the renovation perfectly complements the resort’s uniquely beautiful location, which features a serene crescent beach, lush tropical gardens, and a natural mineral spring pool. The renovation schedule was carefully planned to have very little, if any, impact on the Couples Sans Souci experience. Restaurants, bars, pools and premium dining options remain plentiful, as well as our included and extensive list of land and water activities and island excursions. As of August 1, the majority of public spaces are open and operational, including the main swim-up bar, Beach Grill, Veggie Bar, Martini Bar, and Sunset Beach Bar, Palazzina, Bella Vista, Sunset Beach Grill, and in-suite dining. Spa and salon services, as well as gym and fitness facilities are available, along with multiple pools, including Couples Sans Souci’s famous Mineral Spa, Main Pool, Grotto and the au naturel Sunset Beach pool.”

The renovated suites boast wood furnishings, natural textures, pastel pops of color, new sliding doors with double-paned glass leading to the balconies and patios, bathrooms with large walk-in showers and final Italian porcelain, and LED lighting.


Elsewhere around the resort, upgrades and new amenities include new food offerings, a new coffee bar off the lobby, a new massage hut, upgraded spa gazebos, an expanded Balloon Bar and updates to multiple other on-site restaurants and bars.
