About Island Outpost


Island Outpost is a collection of distinctive Jamaica hotels and villas known for their interesting character and expression that reflects the magic of music, each with its own rhythm, its own beat. As envisioned by Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records, “Island Outpost is about a feeling. The rush of discovery. The joy of independence. The bliss of authenticity. It is really about the spirit, sensibility and heart.”

Like a close-knit family of wildly attractive, intelligent and anarchic kids, they are utterly independent and quite impossible to separate from one another. But something they have all inherited is Blackwell’s easy charm, his amused and iconoclastic view of the world, his sense of fun and style, his instinct for beauty.
