Come and take part
From salsa and soca, to reggae and rock ’n’ roll, we’ll get you on your toes. Inside in the ballroom or outside on the beach. If you can make shapes, great. If you need a helping hand, our pro instructors are here to turn your two left feet into a feat of elegance and poise. Strictly. For couples.
Whether in the midday sun or at dusk, our beach volleyball courts are there for you to get together and punch a ball over a net with your favourite couples.
Discover the therapeutic art of weaving hats. What better keepsake of your trip – something you’ve made yourself. Our instructors will show you everything you need to do and materials are provided.
Whittle away the hours at our specialist wood carving classes. Create your own little sculptures and take a skill that will enthral and entertain.
Come on! What could be better than a good old sing-along to round off the evening. You’ve got a cocktail in one hand and a microphone in the other and everyone joins in. Our piano bar is legendary.
Slam dunk! Drop into one of our fast and furious basketball courts. Get a team together with other couples (and get just a little bit competitive). Top secret: some of our staff are big lads. Get them on your side.
Our 25 acres of grounds offer ample opportunity for exploration and becoming at one with Jamaica’s nature. It’s sheer beauty and an interesting and pleasurable experience with our expert guides. They know what and where everything is.
The au naturel way…
If you’re inclined, sunbathe and swim au naturel in our secluded, private area with a swim-up bar overlooking a beautiful crescent beach. There’s also a grill and Jacuzzi for you to relax and unwind with other couples. Leave your camera in the safe in your suite. And this is the one activity where we don’t have to provide any equipment – just relaxed, open fun.

Golf at Upton Golf & Country Club
For guests of Couples Tower Isle and Couples Sans Souci, the Upton Golf & Country Club is a golfer’s dream come true. Built in 1951 as a 9 hole course by PK Saunders, the 18-hole par-71 course stretches out over rolling hills of Bermuda grass with striking views of the aqua blue Caribbean and the lush mountain landscape. All of the greens have been recently resurfaced with Tifdwarf Bermuda grass.
Precision is the name of the game on this course. Even without major forced carries and few fairway bunkers, ten holes are flanked by out-of-bounds stakes making each shot a thrilling exercise of skill. Narrow fairways and small drop-off greens add a further level of challenge.
Guests may rent Yamaha golf carts, Adidas golf shoes and Taylor Made RBZ golf clubs at the club's pro shop.
