Travel Channel recently toured the globe giving viewers a behind the scenes look at some of Hollywood's most exotic movie locations. The show “Hot Movie Sets” traveled to Jamaica where the popular film “Cocktail” was shot, starring Tom Cruise and Elizabeth Shue. The program features Sandals Royal Plantation as today’s happening couples retreat, similar to that of the 80’s flick set location where a talented New York bartender takes a job in Jamaica and falls in love. From cascading waterfalls to horseback riding along the coastline, “Hot Movie Sets” unveils Jamaica’s most thrilling attractions where the sexy onscreen adventure began and is still romancing vacationers today

This fun-loving culture isn’t just the perfect movie location for romance on-camera, but off-camera vacationers from all over the world are getting lost in a love story of their own courtesy of Sandals Resorts.
