This stylish boutique hotel is hidden high up in the Blue Mountains on a 26-acre estate with spectacular views over Kingston. Built on an 18th-century strawberry plantation, Strawberry Hill has a rich history and epitomises old colonial Jamaica. It was once a haven for musicians including the legendary Bob Marley and is now a popular celebrity haunt.
Offering impeccable service, mouthwatering cuisine and excellent facilities including a restaurant, bar, pool with a view and spa, Strawberry Hill will appeal to those seeking a secluded and intimate mountain retreat.
This rustic-chic hotel has just 12 elegant Georgian-style cottages and villas nestled on the hillside for maximum privacy. Each one features traditional plantation-style décor and a delightful verandah with a hammock, the perfect spot to enjoy the mesmerising vistas.
Strawberry Hotel is made for relaxation, whether you choose to sip a rum punch by the stunning infinity pool as you admire the views or be pampered at the spa.
For those wanting to venture outside the hotel tours of coffee plantations, guided hikes and visits to hidden waterfalls can be arranged. Lightfoot Travel can create a customised itinerary filled with unforgettable adventures.
