From cliff-side sanctuary to mountaintop oasis to oceanfront retreat…Island Outpost’s resorts give locals the opportunity to vacation close to home, while still feeling a world-away. The Caves, GoldenEye, and Strawberry Hill are offering 26% off room rates exclusively for local Jamaican residents from now until December 15, 2013*.
For those wishing to avoid the typical all-inclusive retreat, the only answer is to head to The Caves, perched on limestone cliffs just outside Negril. Guests can take a giant leap into the cerulean blue waters from one of the high diving points, spot rainbow-colored parrotfish and large-eyed squirrelfish while snorkeling through the honeycombed caverns, watch fiery sunsets with unobstructed views to the horizon, and kick back with a cocktail in the Blackwell Rum Bar created from two of the many grottos within the cliffs. At the end of the day guests can retire to a thatched-roof cottage, sans a trail of sand. All-inclusive rates start at $310 (including 26% discount).
Up in the midst (and mist) of Jamaica’s famous mountain range, the Blue Mountains, lies Strawberry Hill, a collection of cottages suspended 3100 feet above Kingston. The destination is a haven for nature lovers who prefer to be surrounded by a sea of lush greenery rather than the sea itself. Guests can get their blood pumping on a hike or mountain biking excursion on one of the many trails on the 48-acre property, grab a pair of binoculars and spot most of Jamaica’s 26 endemic species of birds, or tour the island’s premier Blue Mountain Coffee estate (with samples along the way) to see how beans are harvested and processed. Rates start at $174 (including 26% discount).
Beach-lovers with an appetite for places with a glamorous past (and present) should book a stay at GoldenEye, author Ian Fleming’s former home and the site where he penned all 14 James Bond novels. GoldenEye’s villas and cottages open directly onto the beach or lagoon, so toes meet sand or sea without delay. Guests can soak up the rays paddle boarding on the hotel’s turquoise lagoon, lounge on the croissant-shaped beach or wade in the saltwater pool located on a strip of land jutting out over the sea. Rates start at $415 (including 26% discount). Guests seeking the ultimate cultural submersion should book the five-bedroom Fleming Villa, still home to Fleming’s writing desk. Rates for the Fleming Villa start at 4,070 (including 26% discount).
