  • Couples

    Couples Resorts’ founder Abe Issa opened Jamaica’s first year-round resort–Tower Isle Hotel–in 1949 and never looked back. In 1978, he pioneered the all-inclusive concept for couples to the island—blending luxury, romance and value under one roof. Named Couples Ocho Rios, it served as the corner stone for building the Couples Resorts brand.

    Aptly dubbed
    “The Father of Jamaican Tourism,”

    Abe understood the importance of creating resorts as luxurious as they are authentic. By intertwining local Caribbean culture, spectacular natural settings and first-rate amenities, he achieved an undeniably successful combination. Today, Couples Resorts proudly owns and operates four all-inclusive luxury boutique resorts in the Caribbean – four in Jamaica. Embracing a casual yet chic style infused with pure Jamaican island, each one offers a genuine, intimate and truly memorable experience.

    Still very much a family business, Couples Resorts is led by Abe’s son, Lee, and other members of the Issa family, who along with a dedicated team of management and staff, remain committed to Abe’s pioneering vision and dedicated to making sure that each visit is a perfect one.

    At Couples Resorts, the key to our success is our people
    and the exceptional service they provide.
    We believe in going further than merely meeting your expectations. We strive to exceed them by adding a special personal touch to every facet of your Caribbean experience.

    Every member of our staff shares in this passion for service and commitment to ensure that your stay is perfect from start to finish. By offering exceptional five-star service and world-class amenities in Jamaica’s most idyllic natural setting, we create a carefree and enchanting environment that encourages you to forget about everything and focus on enjoying each other.
    Without children or stress, our couples only philosophy translates into pure romance from the moment you arrive. Some call it quality time. Others call it intimacy.

  • High Hope Estate

    Kitty and Derek Spence loved to entertain and built High Hope Estate with hospitality in mind. The guest book is full of notables who have enjoyed the splendor of High Hope; Charlie Chaplin, Ian Fleming, Noel Coward, Max Lerner, Agnes De Mille, Kurt Vonnegut, Adlai Stevenson and Richard Helms, to mention a few. Their circle of friends came from all over the world to visit in Jamaica. Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller had dinner at High Hope with Kitty while on their honeymoon to Jamaica in 1957. They also had a flat in London, a home in Switzerland, and an apartment on Park Avenue in New York. They enjoyed the company of politicians and the literary crowd.
    Kitty was a beautiful and fascinating woman. In her youth she posed for the famous American artist Maxfield Parrish. The extremes of her personality are seen throughout the property. For example, Kitty had Great Danes and Chihuahuas. She was married four times; Derek was her last husband. Her second husband was Robert Lehman of the Lehman Brothers banking family who was one of the richest men in the United States during the mid-30s. Kitty’s grandfather was William Jennings Bryan William Jennings Bryan, known as “TheGreat Commoner”, was a three-time Democratic candidate for president and served as Secretary of State under Woodrow Wilson. Kitty’s mother was the first woman ever appointed as an Ambassador from the United States in the 1930s. Her appointment was to Denmark. It was actually Kitty’s mother who introduced her to Jamaica, which Kitty came to love.
    Derek was an English gentleman whose family had a monopoly on the mining of alum in the mid-1800s for the entire British Empire. Alum was mined for dental use and holding colors fast in fabrics. While Derek, better known as Derry, was chairman of the company which his grandfather had started, his true interest was in horticulture. While in England, Derry worked with lilies, but upon moving to Jamaica noticed that only three common varieties of hibiscus were to be found. He established a full scale nursery, still in operation, and from the red, white and yellow common hibiscus, developed over 560 varieties of hybrids. Today, High Hope still boasts one of the largest collections of hybrids in the world. Derry was known in Jamaica for his philanthropic work and Kitty as an eccentric, fun loving lady. She once had the pool moved from the upper level where the house sits to a lower level of the property because she enjoyed swimming in the nude and did not want to offend her guests. Derry died and was buried in Jamaica. Kitty, who earlier was invited to be an honorary member of the Mohawk Indian tribe, died of natural causes, was cremated and her ashes were scattered over the sacred burial grounds of the Mohawks in upstate New York.
    Over 200 years ago, this property was the site of a retirement home for British Military officers. Before that, there is evidence that the indigenous people of Jamaica, the Arawak Indians found the property to be a useful vantage point (550 ft. elevation) ideal for observing approaching ships. It is fair to assume that the Arawaks were standing in the very place where the villa of High Hope now stands when they saw Christopher Columbus’ ship arriving in Jamaica in search of the new world.
