Chantelle tells us about her visit to Jamaica in her fantastic Jamaica trip diary…
After a 9 hour flight with British Airways we touched down at Kingston Norman Manley International Airport, the sun was setting and the temperature a wonderful 30 degrees. We continued through customs and immigrations – I highly recommend the fast track service which costs just $30 and includes a meet and greet service off the place – to the arrival hall which was very modern and looked newly refurbished. After a short wait we were met by our friendly driver Ernest who took us to Strawberry Hill, one of the fantastic Island Outpost collection of properties founded by Island Records founder Chris Blackwell, perched 3,000ft above sea level and a 45 minute drive through the Mountain View Neighbourhood.

This week we received a visit from the lovely Siobhan of Island Outpost Jamaica. Owned by Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records, Island Outpost is a collection of exclusive boutique hotels in Jamaica. The hotels are well known for each having their own distinct and interesting character, and a real sense of authenticity… a true feel of luxury and opulence but in a completely unpretentious, almost casual way!
The Maldives is an excellent destination for family holidays thanks to the tropical weather and luxurious resorts with plenty of leisure facilities and activities to occupy the whole family. Many holiday islands promise great value for money particularly during the summer months, with some even allowing children to stay and eat free of charge! Below is an introduction to just a few of the Maldivian resorts where kids stay free.
