Known as one of the primary jewels in the Caribbean, Jamaica is an incredibly beautiful island. The island’s crystal clear waters, soft sandy beaches, waterfalls and lush mountains attract travelers from around the world. Jamaican culture is very relaxed and positive in nature creating the perfect environment for a vacation. As the home of reggae icons like Bob Marley, you can expect to hear curated sounds in the majority of the bars and restaurants around the island. Jamaican food is creole, a delicious fusion of European and African flavors. African spice rubs have evolved into the famous “jerk” flavor, while yam, fish and plantain form the basis of rich stews. Bountiful opportunities await for the adventurous ecotourist including; cave exploration, rafting, hiking, bird watching, snorkeling, and paddle boarding. While Eco-travel is not as popular here as other countries around the world, there are a few incredible eco hotels on the island that make up the lack of quantity of options. No other place on earth can you feel the island vibe, culture, cuisine, attractions, and environment that surround you in Jamaica.

Rockhouse is an award-winning boutique hotel perched over Pristine Cove on Negril’s west end. A long-cherished destination for stylish travelers, Rockhouse has an impeccable 25-year commitment to regenerative travel. Rockhouse undertakes environment best practice (Green Globe Certified) while putting back into the community through the Rockhouse Foundation. The design principles behind Rockhouse evolve directly from the natural surroundings. Emphasis is placed on simple and strong forms and the hotel is designed to be a harmonious and respectful insertion into its jungle-like environment. Choice of materials was also critical – local timber and thatch were chosen to merge with the fully-grown garden. The use of stone was inspired by the surrounding fossil rock landscape. All room furnishings, constructed from local hardwoods and timbers, are built on site at the Rockhouse woodwork shop.
Imagining the Jamaican version of a hip, Havana heyday-era bohemian beach resort swim club, the Skylark Negril Beach Resort draws on inspirations from tropical mid-century, modern design, and the vibrant visual vocabulary of Jamaica and it’s vast musical culture. Friendly and connected staff offer highly bespoke and local personal travel experiences. The soundtrack is an ever-present, ultra-educated mix of Jamaican music spanning the decades. The property’s design is defined by an authentic sense of place — from aquamarine guest room doors that convey the boutique hotel’s proximity to the Caribbean Sea, to various shades of greens reflecting the property’s lush native vegetation, to accent pieces showcasing the island’s signature ackee fruit’s bright red color.
