Scattered on the cliffs overlooking Boston Bay (on the North east point of Jamaica), Great Huts is an oceanfront ecotourism resort described by many as “the perfect place to see the real Jamaica”. The uniquely built huts on the property create an African styled beach-jungle-cliff habitat village that presents a pleasant hideaway for the back-packing, barefooted ecotourist.

Accommodations boast Tree houses and Huts constructed of Bamboo, hand-crafted furnishings, exotic fabrics and tribal art. Nature lovers, romantics, artists and other travelers will find warmth, authenticity, and adventure here. The sounds of the waves are completely relaxing while the views are amazing. The huts on the property are spaced out nicely so you feel as if you have the place all to yourself.

Sitting 100 feet above the Caribbean Sea, right next door to the famed Boston Beach (long known as the home of the Island’s best Jerk Pork) Great Huts’ environmentally friendly dwellings and activity programs encourage the traveler to appreciate the natural and cultural environments of greater Port Antonio in safety and comfort. While guests have the option of spending their days relaxing, reading, contemplating and dining on the property, the resort also offers a range of hiking tours of varying lengths and challenges in Port Antonio’s Rio Grande Valley and Jamaica’s Blue Mountains to explore the rich, alluring Jamaican ecology.
With private access to the surfing haven of Boston Beach, Scuba Diving lessons and certification are available. Guests can also take a horseback ride on the beach, visit the nearby Reach Falls and Somerset Falls, and other attractions. Bird Watchers will find the crown jewel of West Indian Hummingbirds, the endemic swallowtail or “doctor bird”, along with 3 other species of hummingbird.
Venture even further out and explore the Rio Grande Valley, including Moore Town and Nanny Town, where live the Windward Maroons, descendants of the runaway slaves led by Nanny. Explore the ruins of the colonial era estates.
Great Huts offers affordable lodging, and a chance to experience the natural beauty of Jamaica and her people. This is not a place for people who want ALL the amenities of a luxury hotel or resort, but if you enjoy nature and want a romantic getaway in Jamaica this is definitely the place for you.
