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.

Will, Ra and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

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.

Other places to stay in Jamaica

Round Hill

Round Hill

Set on a peninsula near Montego Bay on Jamaica’s north-west coast, Round Hill is one of the top luxury family resorts in the Caribbean.

White Suite, Jamaica Inn

Jamaica Inn

Ideally located on the edge of Ocho Rios, Jamaica Inn is an elegant and low-key hotel that has been associated with famous names such as Ian Fleming and Katharine Hepburn.



Anyone with even a passing interest in James Bond (ie: 90% of the male population and a good proportion of the female one, too) should stay at GoldenEye. Sweeping statement for sure, but this was where author Ian Fleming created and wrote 13 of the 007 novels that spawned an international phenomenon.

Strawberry Hill

Strawberry Hill

There’s more to Jamaica than sandy beaches, nice as they are. The island’s fertile internal slopes are a haven from the heat with spectacular views of the coastline and sparkling Caribbean Sea beyond, and also home to the Strawberry Hill, a seriously elegant plantation house hotel.

The Trident

The Trident

The Trident hotel in Port Antonio is a refreshing blend of old and new, with its 1960s original location and its ultra sleek 21st century facelift.
