Jamaica Inn, Jamaica
On a beautiful crescent of champagne coloured sand, outside the town of Ocho Rios you will find our Jamaica Inn, a charming boutique property that has been wowing guests for over 60 years. This iconic beachside resort has been under the same family ownership since the 1950s and was a favourite amongst the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Arthur Miller and Winston Churchill.
With just 55 spacious rooms, suites and cottages there is a genuine air of tranquillity here and the friendly staff pride themselves on their exceptional levels of service. Each room has that quintessential Caribbean view with comfortably appointed verandas or spacious balconies. Crisp white linens, Wedgewood blue walls, plantation-style louvre shutters and cool ceramic floors create a very light and airy feel, and the charming antiques enhance the feeling that you have stepped back in time. With no distractions such as TVs, alarm clocks or radios to disturb the peace, the only sound is the gentle lapping of the waves on the beautiful white sand beach.
Mornings start with a leisurely breakfast on your private veranda or on the lovely terrace overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Refuel at lunchtime with the sand between your toes in the Beach Bar and delight in afternoon tea on the cocktail terrace. A varied 6 course menu is available each evening, a clever blend of international cuisine infused with local Jamaican flavours and accompanied by live music most nights.
Further relaxation can be found at the intimate Ocean Spa, hidden in the cliffs of Cutlass Bay. All treatments are drawn from the plants of the island, sourced from local organic farmers and wild-gathered by environmentally sustainable methods. In addition to a full menu of spa services, circuit training, personal training, private yoga instruction and other fitness classes are offered throughout the week.
The private beach at Jamaica Inn is never crowded and if you can bear to tear yourself away from that book you have been meaning to read all year as you laze in one of the hammocks slung between the swaying palms, you can enjoy a host of complimentary beach activities including kayaking, paddle boarding and snorkelling.
A highlight here has to be the turtle hatching! Every year, Hawksbill turtles nest and hatch on the beach during summer and lucky guests can witness tiny turtle hatchlings making their way to the sea.
For the true romantics amongst you, an upgrade to Cottage 7 is our tip; with custom made furnishing, a beautiful infinity pool and steps down to a private cove it is simply breath-taking!
End a perfect day in paradise with a couples massage on the ocean side, as the sun sets.
