Beach Body Boot Campers Rocked It Out

May 6th, 2013

There was climbing, hiking, dancing, swerving, kicking, sweating and more — and it all added up to a rousing fitness success as we wrapped up the first Beach Body Boot Camp last weekend at JBR. Our Boot Campers embraced the aches and pains and came back for more – like 5:00 a.m. crazy more! Those early calls were tough but we were back and relaxing on the beach as everyone else was having their first cup of coffee. What’s more, everyone made the top on the uphill hikes to Shirley Heights and Mount Obama for those beautiful views of the coast, harbor, capital and rolling hills. We’re looking forward to the next Beach Body Boot Camp, August 2-8 and crossed our hearts to keep up the workouts till then. The only huffing and puffing should be the tropical breeze. We hope you’ll join us. Congratulations to all the Boot Campers! We did it, and here are all your smiling faces!


April 25 –Socarobics warmed us up as we got a full-body cardio workout
moving to hottest Soca music from the Caribbean.


April 26 – The steep climb up Mount Obama at 5:00 a.m. tested us all,
and we made it to stand on Antigua’s highest point.


April 27 – ZUMBA® Madness as the sun started to set


April 28 – The reward for hiking ten miles to Shirley Heights Lookout was the
most beautiful and famous panoramic view of Antigua’s coastline.


April 29 – At 5:00 a.m. it was time to work up a sweat during the best light of the
day as we hit the beach for the Fitness Challenge.

Local Jolly Kidz Contest Makes Writing Fun – and Rewarding

Kids have a lot to say and we’re going to make writing some of it down fun with our Jolly Kidz Contest. We’re inviting all Primary School children in Antigua, grades 4 through 6, to tell us in an essay what makes their family special. We’re really looking forward to hearing from lots of children, and we know that we’re going to learn a lot from them. The student who writes our favorite essay will receive an all-inclusive two-night stay at Jolly Beach Resort & Spa for a family of four. Entries will be accepted until May 15th and must include the student’s first-name only along with their parent’s full contact details and a family photo.

In addition to celebrating families this contest will also spotlight the educators who play such an important role shaping their students’ minds. The teacher whose student claims the top prize will receive a Day Pass for two, and the winning student’s school principal will enjoy a complimentary dinner for two.

I Do Renew, Do You?

May 1st, 2013

Every year we can count on Mariah and Nick to remind us to keep the romance alive when they renew their vows.  While celebrity recommitments keep these ceremonies in the news, here at Jolly Beach Resort we know they’re more than just a trend.  Renewal of Vows are a very popular celebration here year after year and for reasons as individual as the couples themselves.  Many are commemorating a milestone anniversary having been together through thick and thin, then there are the newlyweds who said their “I dos” in a traditional wedding at home and want an intimate ceremony on the beach.  Some say a recommitment is a wedding they can relax and enjoy, and not be caught up in the planning, to really appreciate what marriage and their love means in their lives. And still others to share a celebration of their love with children and grandchildren. Whatever the reason and whether it’s close to home or barefoot on a beach like ours, committed relationships are something to celebrate.  Congratulations Mariah and Nick.

Anytime is the perfect time to celebrate a union and declare "œI do."€ At Jolly Beach Resort & Spa we make it free and easy to plan a vow renewal for guests booking a 7-night, all-inclusive stay in a Superior Room category or higher.
