I cannot express in worlds how over the top fabulous Strawberry Hill is. The ride up the mountain is an adventure in itself. Once you arrive your life will change and you will never want to leave.

Spectacular property, with interesting reggae & rock n roll music history as well as Jamaican Colonial history, including a connection to Ian Fleming, great views, but above all fantastic service - par for the course for a property owned by Chris Blackwell. Is it pricey, yes, but it's all about the details and the service at Strawberry Hill. In the... More

My husband and I had a wonderful three days here, perched in the mountains in the middle of summer. We had one of the best night's sleep with the gentle mountain breeze because we had a pre-dinner relaxation on our outdoor gazebo bed, turndown service with a freshened up bed (with an electric blanket, if it were cool enough), and...

I went to Strawberry Hill for a weekend break to seek some calm from a hectic business trip in Kingston.

This is an amazing property I have visited over the years several times--it's like a ritual when in Kingston. Staying there is a bit outside my range, but the restaurant, bar, grounds, cottages and everything is just great. The sense of music royalty is everywhere as the owner, Chris Blackwell of Island Records fame, put his imprint on it. Fantastic... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Strawberry Hill Hotel, Spa & Gardens, a 26-acre mountain top resort, is located in the heart of one of the world's most famous coffee-producing mountain ranges, Jamaica's Blue Mountains. Listed in the New York Times #1 bestselling book, 1,000 Places To See Before You Die, Strawberry Hill is 3100 feet above sea level and features one of the most awe-inspiring views of the Blue Mountains in one direction as well as the city of Kingston in the other. On a clear day, one can see up to 100 miles from the property's infinity-edge pool, and at night the city far below becomes a twinkling mirror of the night sky. The property's 12 Georgian-style cottages, spa, exotic gardens and restaurant offerings underwent an extensive refurbishment in October 2011. ... more   less
