AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (View): It’s hard to put my camera down here, because wherever I turn there are incredible views of the mountains, city and grounds.
Located in the Blue Mountains, gracious hospitality is the norm at this retreat. Rustic-chic cottages have decks and super views. A lovely infinity pool overlooks Kingston 3,100 feet below. Music aficionados will love the treasure trove of iconic photos and record awards featured in the public areas. Bob Marley and other Chris Blackwell (Island Records) recording artists are featured. The gardens are quite pretty; often you can catch a glimpse of Jamaica's wonderful national bird: the iridescent, swallow-tailed hummingbird, also known as the doctor bird. Many of the cottages require climbing steep stairs to access.
Smoke free premises. 13 cottages, some kitchens. 1-2 stories (no elevator), exterior corridors.
