I have never written a review in my life, but Jade Mountain was so far above every expectation we had, I just had to speak up. My husband and I were looking for the perfect Honeymoon location. I came across Jade Mountain and all of the reviews were just so incredible, we figured why not give it a try. I have really traveled the world, staying in 5 Star hotels from Monaco to Hawaii, Jade Mountain takes the cake!
As soon as you land, the pampering starts. We were greeted by this fabulous driver who offered us water and took our bags to his BMW. He made the hour long drive to Jade quite enjoyable. We read a lot of reviews about the "holy road" being just a terrible trip. It is bumpy, but actually really fun! It makes you feel like your are going off the grid! Once we got up to Jade, our private butler greeted us with a bellman who took our bags. They had these wonderful tropical drinks waiting and then walked us into the hotel. After we regained our composure from seeing the hotel, they took us into our sanctuary. Again, serious jaw dropping happened. It is just nothing you could ever imagine. The fabulous open air bathroom, the pool and then the VIEW! We were a little concerned about having no AC. We are from Texas, so AC is definitely a staple in our life. The room has several fans, plus a fan inside the bed. There was one night we got a little warm, but we jumped into the pool for a minute, crawled back into bed, and then woke up to the sound of the birds singing at sunrise.
So, if I haven't sold you enough, the food is out of this world incredible! I would definitely call myself a picky eater, but out of all the meals we ate, I literally loved every single bite. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, cocktails, the little black box of goodies that showed up in our room at noon everyday, and room service is mouth watering delicious. My husband and I are talking about going back just to eat more that the wonderful food. We ate several courses for every meal, so we were quite glad there was a hike to get down to the beach. The beach is pretty far down, but it is a great walk. The birds are singing, it is never too warm and it's great exercise. There were a few occasions we had a few too many drinks on the beach, so we simply pulled out our handy cell phone provided by the resort and called for a ride up to Jade.
We were also a little concerned about the missing forth wall and rain. It did rain for about 10 minutes every day, but the resort is situated so the rain does not come into the room. The first two feet or so of the room and pool get wet, but besides that, it was great to lay in our cozy bed but feel like were outside in the rain.
Lastly, the staff is just so incredible. The staffed learned really fast that my 6'5 all that is man husband has a seriously love for chocolatini's. One day, we decided to hang out for an hour or so in the lounge. We were the only ones there, so all the waiters decided to make up their own version of chocolatini's and brought them out for us to judge. It was SO much fun, plus delicious! We were there on the Total Romance Package, so all of this was included.
I could go on and on about how we had the perfect honeymoon, It was perfect. There was one day my hubby and I had a silly disagreement over something. Somehow our butler must have sensed the tension. After we got back from dinner, we opened the door to our room and found rose petals and candles leading to our bath tub, He had a full blown bubble bath going with rose petals, candles, and wine. After our super romantic bath, we walked down to our bed and he created this wonderful heart out rose petals on the bed with candles alllllll over the room. Talk about amazing!
So my two cents, IT IS WORTH EVERY SINGLE CENT! Perfect, amazing, wonderful!
