Play it safe at Superclubs

It is said that good offense is the best defense and an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. At Grand Lido Negril Resort & Spa, you can cover off both bases with “The Travel Prescription to Good Health” packages. Throughout the month of November, guests can combine a Jamaican all-inclusive luxury holiday with health tips, an exercise regime and sports to strengthen their immune system, as well as the flu shot that’s become scarce in the U.S. but remains one of the best protections against influenza virus.This AAA Four Diamond all-suite seaside resort is set on 22 acres along Negril’s seven-mile beach. The extensive grounds are perfect for bicycle tours and power walks, or nature walks for a less intense but no less healthy stroll. Aquacise classes are a low-impact cardiovascular aerobic exercise, held three times a week at the resort.

The resort’s fully equipped gym regularly hosts aerobics and stretch-N-tone classes, and guests can also sign up for personal training sessions, for health tips to last a lifetime. Morning yoga classes twice a week are ideally situated outdoors within earshot of lapping waves. Tennis and golf lessons with resident pros are both complimentary. For a fun workout, try reggae and soca dance classes.

Healthy adults seeking to insure against the flu blues can also elect to get vaccinated during their holiday. At Grand Lido Negril, flu shots are administered by a registered nurse. The vaccinations are manufactured by the reputable German firm SSW Dresden, part of the Glaxo Smith Kline Group. There is no shortage of vaccinations in Jamaica.
