The Luxurious Rockhouse Hotel, Jamaica

Hexagonal thatched-roof buildings, volcanic Jamaican coastline and sparkling turquoise waters give the Rockhouse Hotel a look and feel that’s straight out of a Robinson Crusoe fantasy. The truth is not far off: the resort designers sought to mimic the seamless merging of man and nature so beautifully exemplified by African village life. Together, the hotel’s bar and restaurant constitute the central square of this Rockhouse “village”, perched on a gorgeous deck suspended above the Pristine Cove.

A stunning infinity pool set in a cliff-top rock garden perfects the back-to-nature atmosphere, while ubiquitous references to the Caribbean Sea and surrounding Jamaican countryside complete the picture of an island getaway. But the true highlights are the generous timber bungalows overlooking either glowing Caribbean waters or the hotel’s expansive, lush tropical gardens. The luxury hotel also offers a number of studios, whose breezy linen curtains and custom-made furniture of local wood add to the overall in-tune-with-nature ambiance. Throughout the property, ladders and stairs carved into the rock provide easy access to the water, while a new temple-like spa pavilion – complete with Massage Cabana, Caribbean Drench Hut and yoga room – rounds out this laidback haven of relaxation.

Rockhouse is a member of Design Hotels™ and is located in West End Negril, two and half miles west of Negril Town. Approximately 10 hours from the International Airport in Montego Bay.
