Jamaica Inn, rated number 1 in Jamaica by Travel & Leisure in 2008, is the quintessential Caribbean hotel glamourised by the likes of Ian Fleming and Noel Coward. Today the hotel remains the same in structure and soul but with a modern face lift. With just 47 suites and 4 villas on its own beautiful beach it is a world of old fashioned charm and perfect for couples of all ages.
Privately owned, Jamaica Inn continues from strength to strength. Recently refurbished each bedroom (with both air conditioning and overhead fans) opens onto its own terrace or balcony with sofas, tables and chairs, perfect for breakfast, afternoon tea or just simply relaxing, the rooms overlook the croquet lawn and the Caribbean sea, some right on the beach or on the waterfront. The traditional white suite is the ultimate honeymooners’ retreat with not only a large secluded pool but an entire peninsular from which to watch the setting sun. For those wishing for a more cutting edge approach to life there are two stunning cottages with infinity pools set just steps away from the beach with their own access to the sea.
There is a small but charming spa on the waters edge which uses locally sourced organic products. Two of the treatment rooms are outside so you can be lulled to sleep by the gently lapping waves.
In the evening the music starts and it’s time for cocktails & dinner on the plantation house terrace accompanied by live music – a perfect end to a perfect day in paradise.
