Complimentary amenity: Will it be a massage? A body scrub? Or relaxing reflexology? Relax with one complimentary 30-minute spa treatment of your choice at the Caribbean’s only Aveda Concept Spa.
Twelve airy cottages, designed by Ann Hodges, cluster beside the Caribbean’s only Aveda Concept Spa, located at the resort. Wood-shingled and gracious, the architecture reflects the original nineteenth-century buildings that once stood here with cooling louvers, ceiling fans, fretwork and gables. Hammocks and rockers stand on the verandahs. Hardwood floors and mahogany furniture – handcrafted on the premises – complete the genteel ambiance. Rates start at $285 per person, per night with breakfast and are based on single or double occupancy. Rates include taxes and gratuities.
Complimentary amenity: A trip to Jamaica wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the ‘Pelican Bar’, dubbed the coolest bar in the Caribbean by those in the know…and you get to do it for free.
Guests and locals mingle cheerfully at Jake’s, a 29-room bohemian resort, set on six acres of land. Dramatic cottages commune with the garden, sea and sky, near a secluded fishing village. The bohemian atmosphere comes as no surprise: Jake’s is run by the Henzell family, also responsible for Jimmy Cliff’s The Harder They Come, the hippest Caribbean film of all time. Sally, its set designer, unfurled her talents here: wild purples, pinks, yellows and terracottas brighten the landscape. Moroccan domes and arches bloom. Decks skim the waves. Shells, beads and colored glass glitter brightly from walls. As travel writing legend Tim Cahill pointed out in Islands magazine, “just about everything is funky.” Rates range from $95-$325 per person, per night based on single or double occupancy. All rates include taxes and gratuities.
Complimentary amenity: Explore your literary side with a complimentary trip to nearby ‘Firefly’, the home of British playwright, Noel Coward. Sumptuous picnic breakfast included.
Be shaken – not stirred – by the splendor of James Bond’s birthplace. Today, Fleming’s retreat is a boutique resort laced with beaches, tropical forest, caves and secluded nooks. Dashing 007 originated at this 15-acre seaside hideaway, which blossomed around the home of Ian Fleming, who wrote 13 spy novels here. The author delighted in the landscape’s richness and praised “the blazing sunshine, natural beauty and the most healthy life I could live.” Today, Fleming’s retreat is a boutique resort laced with beaches, tropical forest, caves and secluded nooks.

Complimentary amenity: Ten hand-crafted cottages nestle into this verdant landscape, crowned by a petite Aveda spa, where the two of you will enjoy complimentary stress relief scalp massages.
At the Caves, the volcanic cliff is honeycombed with grottoes: one strewn with flowers and candlelit for intimate dining, another harboring a bubbling hot tub, some are just portals into the crystal-clear sea below, populated by dolphins, parrot fish and sea turtles. Small wonder The Caves was named the best hotel in the Caribbean by Trip Advisor, a leading travel search site. The exclusive magazine Robb Report also celebrated this resort among the “World’s 10 Great Escapes” in March 2004: “Outside, turquoise water laps languidly against rocky cliffs, recalling the Caribbean before high tech hotels vanquished the landscape and personal watercraft disturbed the calm.” Rates start at $325 per person, per night. Rates are based on single or double occupancy and include all meals and beverages, taxes and gratuities.
Complimentary amenity: Complimentary bottle of Champagne
