Geejam is an achingly hip hideout on the Port Antonio coast that’s a magnet for cool kids and celebrities thanks to a laidback tropical ambience, oh, and its own recording studio. As you do.
Accommodation is tucked away in greenery and split between one private villa, one suite and three cabins, so the resort is intimate and never over-crowded. All have stylish monochrome interiors, with white walls and furnishings against dark hardwood Jamaican floors. Each room has its own veranda, with cushioned seating areas and ocean views. The Sanwood private villa has its own swimming pool, whilst three rooms have a Jacuzzi or a hammock to complete the ultra chilled out ambience of the place.
Guests can dine in the open air in the Bushbar restaurant, where Reggae and Ska beats play in the background and jerk seasoning wafts in the air. The menu offers a range of tropical curries, Caribbean fusion dishes and old Jamaican favourites. The best way to complement any meal is with a cocktail from the extensive beverage list on offer; their mojito deserves a special mention. Other than the popular Bushbar guests staying in the private Sanwood villa can also have private in-room dining. Should guests fancy venturing out of their exclusive abodes, nearby Boston Bay has some great local chic-shacks serving jerk chicken and fab seafood.
Although not located directly on a beach, the resort has a private beach at Macks Bay, and there are also nearby unspoilt beaches, such as Frenchman's Cove - which the hotel will transport guests to. All are perfect for sun bathing, swimming and snorkelling. Nearby there is a stunning blue lagoon where warm Ocean meets cold spring water. However if guests fancy something non-beach related, the coastal town of Port Antonio is worth a visit with its heritage buildings, and first class reggae and Ska bars.
Why we love it
Geejam is totally exclusive and relaxing; you can even have in room massages.
