With our exquisite setting on the Caribbean Sea, one-of-a-kind activities and rich history, we invite you to see for yourself why Condé Nast Traveler recently named our resort among the 16 Most Romantic Hotel in the World. Below are our top 9 reasons why you should make Jamaica Inn your home-away-from-home in 2016:
1. Famed Destination.
Known as the “Centerpiece of Jamaica,” Ocho Rios is becoming increasingly popular and trendy. With its natural beauty, abundant waterfalls, botanical gardens and and unique excursions, it’s no wonder several hit TV shows have recently filmed in Ocho Rios.
2. Easily Accessible.
With many non-stop flights available, including new American Airlines service from Los Angeles, it’s easy to reach Ocho Rios. With new highway access, our resort is located only an hour and a half away from both the Montego Bay (MBJ) and Kingston (KIN) international airports. Kingston’s airport has recently taken huge strides to approve its efficiency, safety and facilities, becoming the most improved airport in the Caribbean for 2015, according to Airport Council International (ACI).
3. Exceptional Staff
Our personable staff are passionate about Jamaica, the Inn and our guests, continually going above and beyond expectations. We have 13 staff members who have each been with our Jamaica Inn family for more than 30 years, and our bartender Teddy has been providing Jamaica Inn with his exemplary service for 57 years. Our staff’s love and dedication to the Inn make the difference between a good and a great vacation.
4. Pristine Beach
Protected by bluffs and a stunning reef, our beautiful private beach and crystal blue waters offer ideal conditions for swimming and water sport activities. Come relax, unwind and escape from the stress of everyday life.
5. Ocean Spa
Experience the healing touch of nature at the No. 1 spa in the Caribbean and No. 6 spa in the world. Nestled within the cliffs of Cutlass Bay, you’ll enjoy relaxing breezes and the soft sounds of waves hitting the shore, as you enjoy a soothing massage, try exotic herbal treatments or visit our new sauna.
6. Off the Beaten Path Activities
With our unique offerings of weekly yoga classes, garden tours, croquet with Mr. Rupie and daily afternoon tea, there’s always something new and exciting to experience at the Inn. Many guests say their favorite activity is our weekly chef’s tour through the Ocho Rios Farmer’s Market. While shopping with Executive Chef Maurice and participating in his cooking demonstration, you’ll be immersed in local culture as you experience unique Jamaican flavors and traditions.
7. Relax & Unplug
Our luxurious accommodations will provide the ultimate relaxation. Each room is outfitted with a spacious, fully-furnished verandah, offering breath-taking views of the Caribbean Sea. With no TV in the rooms, you can unplug from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, while still staying connected with our upgraded Wi-Fi. Opt for something tremendously special with the space and privacy of our White Suite and Cottages, which all have private pools.
8. Turtle Hatchings.
During peak turtle season from July to October, witness a turtle hatchling release with Jamaica’s famous Turtle Whisperer, Mel. This once-in-a-lifetime experience is a sight you don’t want to miss!
9. Unique History
Our colonial-style boutique hotel is bursting with history and old-world charm. Since 1958, Jamaica Inn has been owned and operated by three generations in the Morrow family and hosted several prominent guests, including Marilyn Monroe and Sir Winston Churchill. The Inn is also famous for our Black Labrador mascot. A few years ago, we happily welcomed Shadow IV to the Jamaica Inn family, and our new furry friend eagerly greets each and every visitor.
