The ultimate bohemian Beach HotelJamaica, The Caribbean
Named after a family parrot, Jakes was founded and is still run by local Sally Henzell. There are 30 rooms, cottages and villas spread out over the quaint fishing village on Jamaica’s south coast. Each bohemian-style abode has its own one-of-a kind bed, antique furniture, shell fretwork, ceiling fans and louvre windows, which are inspired by Morocco, India and the artist Gaudi.
Wake up in the morning to blue skies and even bluer waters, walk out onto your own wooden outdoor deck and dip into your own saltwater pool. During the day take the boat out to Black River, visit the YS falls to cool off, and head to Floyd’s Pelican Bar floating in the middle of the ocean for a few drinks before dinner.
Your bathers, a pair of thongs and a laid-back attitude are all you’ll need to bring – it’s the Caribbean after all.
- The rustic Jamaican decor throughout the hotel
- It is so remote you feel like you’re on a real escape holiday
- There are so many activities to enjoy if you get sick of relaxing (that’s a big if)
- The drive there can be a bit bumpy – but you’re more than welcome to stop along the way if you need a break
Treasure bay is two hours from Montego Bay Airport. Delta and American Airlines fly direct to Montego Bay daily. If you’re not a fan of a long jumpy drive, commuter planes land all the time up the road from Jakes which are booked through the hotel reception prior to departure.
