Jamaica Inn

Main St.
Ocho Rios , Jamaica
876 974-2514

Gracing its own sandy cove on the east side of Ocho Rios, this classic Caribbean resort has been around since the colonial days of the 1950’s. It has long been a favorite among visiting British elite, including the likes of Winston Churchill. Thoroughly spruced up in 2007, the 47 suites are a blend of Indonesian, colonial, and retro Jamaican décor, but remain refreshingly unplugged, with no TV’s to shatter the peace. Every suite has its own outdoor space, with a private infinity pool and sea entrance just steps from the bedrooms. Although the Jamaica Inn offers the usual distractions like couples’ massages at the KiYara spa, it still cultivates a colonial air, with croquet on one of the sweeping lawns and polo lessons at nearby Chukka Cove equestrian center.

Tip: Ask to have dinner at a private table on the beach or breakfast delivered to your veranda.

Room to Book: For maximum seclusion, book the White Suite. Occupying its own little peninsula, this 2,000-square-foot hideaway has antique furnishings, yards of billowing white curtains, a columned porch, and a private pool.
