Couples Ocho Rios to be renamed Copules Tower Isle

The all-inclusive, 226-room Couples Ocho Rios in Jamaica is being renamed the Couples Tower Isle when its $22 million renovation project is completed this December.The new name is a historical reference to the resort’s beginnings as a private island retreat and hangout for Hollywood celebs in the 1950s and 1960s. The property opened in 1949 as the Tower Isle Hotel, Jamaica’s first year-round beach resort.

Renovations include the addition of four suites and 16 guestrooms (all with ocean views), a 1950s-style diving board at the main pool, a wedding gazebo, a spa with 10 treatment rooms, a swim-up bar and a floating dock at the resort’s private island.
