    Additional Location Information
    Zimbali Mountain Retreat is a 71/2 acre 100% organic fruit farm, located in Jamaica, on Caanan Mountain approximately 25 minutes outside Negril. Caanan Mtn. is a fertile mountain valley, blessed with many mountain rivers and springs, that gently slopes down to the Savanna la Mar. The residents drink straight from the ground and bathe in gentle rivers that weave through the shade of a bamboo canopy. Caanan has a proud history going back over 300 years; a time when sugar cane, bananas and foreign estate owners were the order of the day. Ancient stone bridges, walls and damns still proudly bear witness to a different time.

Mark and Alecia’s fairytale pole-frame lodgings sit perfectly in tune with the natural surroundings. A flawless off the grid electricity & water system provides endless gushing hot water and enough lighting to read at night. A communal lounge room is piled high with spiritually uplifting and educational books, most of which are scribed on the first page by thankful guests... more

Loved Zimbali! My boyfriend and I went in January and loved everything! Felt like an oasis away from the noisy beach and tourist-centric areas. Relaxing but also a great adventure. This is real Jamaica. Up in the mountains. It was fun to tour the organic farm, interact with the chefs as they prepared meals, and play with the puppies that... more
