The private island oasis: Couples Tower Isle

Couples Tower Isle is an Ocho Rios oasis exclusive to adults featuring a private island accessible only by boat. During the day, the island is an au naturel paradise for resort adults to enjoy where brides and grooms can work on their tan. However, it can also be yours for your wedding ceremony and reception. You can rent it for your special day and say ‘I do’ on your own private island!

Of course, you also have the option to exchange vows on the main white sand beach or in the lush gardens.  By night, dine with your loved ones under the stars at a private candlelit dinner right on the beach complete with Couples’ own private label wine and three delicious courses of Caribbean cuisine.

Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall offers an idyllic location for your wedding day, whether you have dreamed of eloping barefoot by the ocean or saying ‘I do’ with a lavish affair on the Grand Ballroom’s open-air terrace.

Before your wedding week, you can enjoy a preview of the resort with a two-night getaway, complimentary when you book your destination wedding at the resort (for select packages). For your reception, you can enjoy cocktails at the only Moroccan-themed rooftop bar in Jamaica, enjoy the nightly outdoor entertainment or stargaze by the beachside fire pits.
