Jamaica Inn is a Caribbean resort replete with blindingly white beaches, clear blue waters, and a sense of restful calm that awaits every guest who steps across its threshold. An iconic institution on the island since the 1950s, this small luxury hotel offers a welcome break from the hectic pace of modern life and serves up a true taste of Jamaican paradise.
Indeed, Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller spent their honeymoon here and Ian Fleming, Noel Coward, Errol Flynn and Katherine Hepburn were often to be seen gracing the bar.
Accommodation here consists of 52 suites and cottages, all decked out in white and blue and set against a backdrop of the vibrant colours of nature. Each dwelling features a private balcony or verandah from which to observe the gentle swaying of the palm trees that line the beach. Rooms are styled in a modern fashion and features include air conditioning, mini fridges that are stocked upon request and the daily services of a maid. But, as the beauty of Jamaica and the sounds of the ocean outside your window demands full attention, there are no TVs, radios or clocks to disturb this mood, although all rooms do have Wi-Fi.
Dining here reflects the laid back but service-orientated nature of the resort generally. Evenings begin with an aperitif on the cocktail terrace and progress to the restaurant, where guests can enjoy delightful local dishes including coconut shrimp and the simply unforgettable Caribbean lobster, serenaded by a live band and the gentle sounds of the ocean.
