Great Huts

Scattered on the cliffs overlooking Boston Bay, Portland (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 ecotourist as well as the easy-going romantic.

Accommodations feature 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.

Named “World’s Leading Villa” in 2011 by the World Travel Awards Round Hill Hotel and Villas offers absolute luxury. This world-famous estate was conceived by well-known Jamaican entrepreneur, John Pringle. The 100-acre peninsula was part of Lord Monson’s Round Hill Estate which was first a sugar plantation and later changed over to coconuts and pimento (all spice) which are still produced today.

Captivating and carefree, richly appointed and steeped in tradition, Round Hill takes you away and brings you closer together. Long one of the most beautiful and elegant boutique resorts in the Caribbean, Round Hill’s 36 beautiful oceanfront hotel rooms, offer splendid ocean-views and the thought of privacy is made a reality from the 27 villa accommodations, most with private pools, on a hillside setting of 110 acres. Their world class-spa, with Elemis treatments, located in an 18th century great house is just one of the many facilities one can enjoy.

Silver Sands

Located approximately 40 minutes east of Montego Bay, Silver Sands on the North Coast is considered (by those who know of its existence) to be the home of one of Jamaica’s best beaches. With spotlessly beautiful white sand and clear blue tranquil waters just sitting on the beach can be enchanting. Step into the warm waters and you’ll never want to leave.

Silver Sands is a secure community of villas and cottages, centered around a fabulous white sand beach. The homes are privately owned by individuals who reside all over the world. There is therefore great variety among them, with no two houses the same. Governed by the Estate’s covenants, each owner has constructed his house to his own taste and specifications.

Strawberry Hill
