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.

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

With only thirteen villas, the resort is small and quite an island hideaway. Each ocean front villa has a comfortably furnished patio, private plunge pool, and is decorated with understated sophistication with light furnishings and 60s artwork.

Trident's restaurant Mike's Supper Club is the place to be with its speakeasy-Jazz bar design and great selection of Japanese-Jamaican inspired dishes and classic cocktail selection. If the food and drink doesn't attract guests then its bright red baby grand piano, which comes alive in the evening with Jazz musicians, will.

Activities at the resort include snorkelling, kayaking and boat excursions, a range of water sports and a fully equipped gym. Guests can also explore the nearby Blue Lagoon, unspoilt beaches and local markets.

For a little R & R guests can retreat to the sun loungers on the private beach, or treat themselves to a Spa day. Maybe even chuck in a pool side cocktail into the mix and guests will never want to leave this tropical haven.

Why we love it

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.



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.
