Travel to Jamaica and stay in GeeJamLike0

In 2009, we had the best trip. Took nearly 24 hours to get there – but we got there! It was the year where the swine flu epidemic scared off all tourists into the Caribbean. Not for us though – 1 Emirates flight to London and a connecting flight with Virgin Atlantic, we landed in Montego Bay, Jamaica. That however was not our final destination. One month of driving around the coast of Jamaica – Montego bayNegrilOcho RiosPort Antonio. It was a beautiful learning experience. At one point, we felt like it was home. We met so many locals that became close to our hearts – we dined in villages, we met families and we danced to their beautiful reggae tones. Jamaica is definitely a place where one day, when we go back, it could be our home.

We stayed in so many hotels along the way, however one of my favorite was Geejam in Port Antonio. Montego Bay is the popular place packed with all inclusive hotels and so is Negril. Whilst, Port Antonio and St.Anne’s bay was still at that time…untouched. GeeJam is located within immediate proximity is Frenchman’s Cove — voted by Conde Nast as one of the world’s top five beaches — and the equally enchanting Blue Lagoon, Geejam sits tall amongst several other stunning beaches. The property borders Drapers, a little known village until Gwen Stefani of No Doubt gave it props at the 2003 Grammy Awards, as a result of the band recording their last album at Geejam hotel Jamaica.

Location A ten-minute drive west will find you in the historic town of Port Antonio, the capital town of the parish of Portland, located on the northeast coast of Jamaica and shrouded by the Blue Mountains. Home to the Errol Flynn marina, it boasts a thriving hub of local culture, with a varied nightlife, including Ska bars, Reggae sound-systems and nightclubs.

It is not your usual resort. It is privately owned. You WILL be secluded from the noise – You WILL feel like you heaven has dropped from the sky – You WILL forget everything. The feeling was as if the property was our home, we were even given a cell phone to contact the reception – front desk – bar and driver from anywhere in Port Antonio. The Fisherman’s cove was our private beach! Surely my number 1 recommendation in Port Antonio. We stayed in DRUM AND BASS suite.

Room Suite All the high tech at that day of age you needed, an apple TV, ipod decks, ipod, sound systems, your own private mobile phone, Jacuzzi bath facing the window that is facing the ocean, huge bathroom with so many pure Jamaican made toiletries. ( Loved their coconut cream!)
