Stay

Revel in a rustically romantic Caribbean retreatNegril, Jamaica

Utopia doesn’t begin to describe Negril’s aptly named Rockhouse Hotel. Carved out of the side of a limestone cliff, each villa has a lush green garden on one side and deep blue Caribbean Sea on the other. Forget the Joneses – your nearest neighbours will be parrotfish and Nemos.

These stone-floor quarters have played host to some serious celebrities over the years, such as Bob Marley, Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones to name but a few. And it's not hard to see why: with its charmingly simple rooms and wildly beautiful views Rockhouse could almost have coined the term 'barefoot luxury'.

Kick back in the spa, then order a coconut cream pie to your room (just because you can). More restless visitors can partake in painting classes, daily hatha yoga, African drumming lessons and tours of the property's organic farm.

Best of all, you can indulge in everything this resort has to offer, safe in the knowledge that the local community comes first: the hotel's foundation has invested almost US$4 million into nearby schools and libraries.
