Rockhouse Hotel

West End Rd.
Negril , Jamaica http://www.rockhousehotel.com
(876) 957-4373

This ultrahip hangout takes its name from its cluster of thatched-roof bungalows built atop rock cliffs that jut just above an aquamarine cove. Most of the 34 so-called rock houses are outfitted with private patios or sundecks; a few have private ladders leading right down into the sea. With four-poster beds made of local timber and covered in the softest linens, soaring ceilings, and giant windows facing the sea or gardens, the rooms encourage ordering breakfast in bed before venturing out for snorkeling in the sheltered waters of the reef or an “On the Rocks” massage in the new open-air, cliff-top spa.

Tip: The hotel funds The Rockhouse Foundation, which provides resources and facilities to Jamaican children; ask the front desk to help arrange a trip to a local school, where guests can donate supplies like notebooks and pens.

Room to Book: An oversize Premium Villa for the killer sunsets every night.

Why It’s a Bargain: Your dollars do double duty; your vacation helps build and repair local schools and expand libraries. Since 2004, the Rockhouse Foundation has donated over $500,000 to its community.
