Tucked away in the folds of the eco-friendly zone of Portland, where the shoreline hugs the sea and the nights glow as much as the days, stands the emblem of respite, relaxation and all things in between. It sits snugly among the trees, embraces the ideally cool temperatures and complements the natural habitat. It offers a peacefully endowed atmosphere, not uncommon to truly tranquil scenes and all those who enter therein can claim its soothing and rejuvenating powers. Kanopi House was created as the ideal getaway location and is unique since it offers no disturbance of its natural environments. Its structure also adds to its modern day charm and it is one with nature. Kanopi House features a certain inexplicable charisma which is further intensified by a secluded cove, blue lagoon, coral reef, surrounding rainforest and its one of a kind 'tree houses'.

Be sure that you really want to experience Jamaica and its people as they are before booking this place. 1. Our experience with travel We booked all of our transport through Paradise Travels , which is what the hotel recommended. The transport costs were extremely high given that this is a developing country. We paid US$200 for transport from Kingston Airport to Kanopi House. The trip should’ve taken 2.5 hours, but the driver wanted to avoid traffic in Kingston and took us through Saint Thomas Parish, and the travel time was 4.5 hours. We booked trips to Dunns Riverfalls ($300USD round-trip) And the blue Mountain coffee tour (350 USD Round-trip) It’s not that the distance to each of these places from Kanopi House is a lot, but the roads are filled with potholes and usually a one lane in a few sections a 2 Lane Highway so transport time was 3 to 4 hours for each trip each way. This match much of our day was spent trave Ing in the transport vehicle. The transport vehicles all had air-conditioning, but some of the drivers were reluctant to use the air-conditioning and wanted to keep the windows down. The roads are filled with dust and the first night after traveling 4.5 hours with the windows open exposed to a good amount of dust I Spent most of the night coughing 2. The hotel The tree house -upper level We stayed at the upper level treehouse And the setting is beautiful, but it really is a treehouse with gaps between the wooden floorboards (see attached and in the window slats.) There was an air-conditioning unit, but given that the treehouse was nowhere near airtight and had visible gaps in the windows slats and floorboards, the room could not be adequately cooled down despite the air-conditioning unit and six ceiling fans. We live in Florida so we are used to the heat and humidity, and the inner temperature was comfortable for us, but may not be for other people. We got fresh towels every day, but a couple of the towels were stained and we did not use them. They were small Bottles of Shampoo, conditioner, and hand wash there was a safe, which was only with a key, there were only three (instead of four batteries installed) so the electronic Key could not be used. The water pressure was extremely low in the sink, but adequate in the shower although not good. Just enough to wash shampoo and conditioner out of my hair, but not what I would have expected from a four-star hotel in the USA or any other country for that matter, We took 100% deet with us and the next day sprayed the outside of the treehouse window slats and floor together with the gaps that were about an inch in the walls in places in the bathroom. This reduced the number of bugs coming into the treehouse, but we still had four or five roaches during the course of our stay which we had to kill. There is a steep incline leading to many of the treehouses and multiple steps, some of them concrete and some of them wooden. Foliage falls on the steps and is not cleared by anyone over the course of our five days stay, and the wooden steps get very slippery following rain, which we only had one day by God‘s grace. We are pretty fit, but my boyfriend struggled to carry his suitcase up multiple levels of steps because at check-in only one person was available to carry my suitcase to the treehouse I would not have been able to carry my suitcase to the treehouse without taking multiple breaks as some of the inclines are extremely steep, and the steps are difficult to navigate Food This was the only vacation I have ever been on where I left with a calorie deficit due to lack of access to food. If you are going to stay here, it is imperative that you take Jamaican dollars because this is really off the usual tourist path and most places don’t take US dollars or credit cards. There is nowhere to eat close by to Where we stayed unless you have a car and are willing to drive nothing within walkable distance except for the hotel restaurant. Breakfast starts at 7:30 AM so because our transport pick up time was 7 AM most days we could not have breakfast at the hotel because the cook doesn’t come in until 7:30 AM There is no option of asking for a packed breakfast to eat on route. We had dinner at the restaurant every evening and the prices were comparable to what you would pay in the US but the portion sizes were really small and we could have eaten double What we were given after a day of activity. On the second day, we asked our driver to stop at a grocery store, but there were no grocery stores close by so we ended up stopping at a gas station and buying raisin bread and cinnamon rolls to eat at the hotel . Our room had a fridge and a French press, coffee maker and kettle. They gave us two bottles of water for two out of five days of our stay. The menu is extremely limited so if you had food, allergies or other limitations, this is not the place for you. The menu is written on a chalkboard and comes out a few hours before meal times. Most evenings we passed by the main lobby/dinner hall and place our order in advance so that we could eat at 7:30 pm which is the earliest they will serve dinner. There was no option of eating any earlier and having an early night. By the time we got back from dinner and showered, we were going to bed at 10 o’clock and up at 5 AM for the next days excursion. This was not a relaxing holiday, as we always had to be mindful of trying to buy food whenever we were out on our excursions, so that we wouldn’t go hungry the next day. I will bug spray to dinner every night as there were a lot of mosquitoes and then I showered when I got back to the hotel before going to bed if we didn’t have the hundred percent with us to spray the exterior of the treehouse circumstances as regards bugs would have been much worse. But there was the constant worry of always washing our hands after touching any of the windows slats/doors, etc. . If you’re prepared to do this or you don’t mind bugs, including mosquitoes then it is a truly unique place to stay and we were able to open up all the windows slats because there was no glass. We had direct communion with the trees and wilderness beyond which was really beautiful . On the day we checked out, there was no one to assist us with carrying our suitcases down the slippery steps as it had rained overnight and down the concrete steps leading back to the parking area. My boyfriend took each of our suitcases down the wooden steps, and then he and I carried our suitcases the rest of the way. It was not a glamorous departure. We did our paperwork the night before to have a seamless check out as we were not certain there would be anyone there to do the checkout process that early in the morning. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone who is not physically fit to climb stairs and inclines and to navigate the foliage That is not cleared away by the hotel staff. Overall, there was only one person at the hotel who was helpful. Everyone else seemed bored and unconcerned with any questions or concerns that we had. In general, the staff seem disinterested in trying to help us or give us any information , there was no service industry at this hotel, but I suspect that outside of the major tourist resorts this may be typical of Jamaica. The excursions. The Dunn river fall was a complete letdown. This is apparently the most famous waterfall in Jamaica and we were not very impressed as it is not very large. The rocks are slippery and there is the option of doing a wet climb up the rocks with a guide. We felt like prey as we entered into the Dunns Riverfall after paying our $25 USD entrance fee as unofficial to a guides descended upon us, insisting on taking us on a tour of the falls. We had one such man take a couple of pictures of us and then gave him five US dollars to be rid of him and to actually be able to enjoy the experience by ourselves. at the falls, there is a restaurant that serves chicken and a few other dishes way overpriced even by US standards but at least there was food available there as we hadn’t eaten since dinner the night before as we leftthe hotel at 7 AM and breakfast doesn’t start until 7:30 AM. There is a very small beach area at the bottom of the Falls and there are locker rooms to store your clothes so if you wear your swimsuit underneath, you can take a swim in the ocean. The facility only allows you to go approximately 20 feet from the beach into the ocean. At this point there are buoys that mark off that you can’t move any further into the ocean. It was pretty pathetic. Given that we come from Florida and live near the beach and there was a very small section of beach less than a quarter of a mile so be aware of that. There are changing rooms available, but the one that my boyfriend went into was covered in urine, and although there was an attendant outside, she did not feel that it was her job to clean that particular stall. There were multiple implied people at the falls, but rather than being helpful, directing tourists, answering questions, etc., they in general were sitting on the concrete walls or in the shaded picnic tables that are meant for tourists to sit and eat, and were unhelpful and unrest in anything except trying to get money from the tourists. We spent about two hours at the Falls total and I’m not sure it was worth the long drive there and back for the experience that we had . Upon leaving the falls, there are multiple stalls where local people are selling wooden carvings and other tourist items. Some of the items looked quite beautiful, and I would’ve been interested in looking around and purchasing some. However, the way that the people selling the items descended upon us, made me uncomfortable and we just walk through without looking at anything in order to get out of that place. The Paradise Travels taxi driver had warned us about this so we were at least prepared to try and get through and say not interested in order to avoid being preyed upon . There were no such things as rest stop so be sure to use the restrooms at the hotel and at the excursions prior to getting on the road. Blue Mountain and coffee tour. The drive-through the blue mountains to get to the coffee tour were absolutely spectacular and breathtaking. However, the roads are terrible and there was evidence of they having been landslides. I would not advise this journey if there has been a lot of rain in Jamaica, as the roads would potentially be dangerous to navigate. The coffee tour itself was pretty lame and was organized through Paradise Travels. It only cost $25 each, but consisted of looking at coffee plants and then a 10 minute brief history of coffee followed by a 30 minute lecture from the person giving the tour Anton, about the global coffee trade, and Jamaica’s place in it. At the coffee place that we toured they did not have the export grade coffee available for purchase and only had a blended mix available which was mediocre in my opinion. We did not purchase any coffee beans from this place Overall, we really enjoyed the trip to the blue Mountains and enjoyed the scenic beauty, especially because we come from Florida, which is very flat. The driver who took us to the blue Mountains(Paradise Travels Company) offered to take us to a breakfast place on our way as he said there wouldn’t be anywhere to eat once we entered the blue Mountains, which was correct. We didn’t see any restaurants or even places where we could’ve picked up food to eat in the taxi. he told us that the place would not accept US dollars or credit cards but offered to pay for us and we would pay him back in US dollars. The cost of breakfast for all three of us was 4000 Jamaican dollars which is US$25 but he told us it was equivalent to US$40. We knew at the outset that we were being ripped off, but we made the decision to just pay him the money because we didn’t want to spoil the day that lay ahead and we were also dependent on him to get us to the blue Mountains and back so we didn’t want any trouble. However, it put a very sour taste in my mouth to have had this interaction. If he hadn’t pulled this stunt, we would have tipped him 40 or $50, because the drive was difficult and he navigated it really safely and well. However, given this attitude of trying to rip us off we reduce our tip to $20 at the end of, the tour Blue Lagoon Kanopi House has its own access to the blue Lagoon on day three of our trip. We spent the entire day at the hotel and were able to access the blue lagoon. The hotel has kayaks and lifejackets available for use. The access however, is a natural access and is filled with rocks and a muddy section if it has Rained. For us, it was dry, but the rocks were difficult to walk on. We had taken our own snorkeling gear and we had a wonderful day snorkeling in the very shallow waters. There are a number of limestone rocks, and there are springs under the blue lagoon so areas of the water are cold maybe 70°F , similar to some of the natural Springs in Florida. The rest of the lagoon was warm water and very pleasant to be in. We saw a number of tropical fish and spent the day watching turtles and intermittently snorkeling. Sun protection is absolute and I wish I had worn a rash guard because my back burned Without my realizing over the course of this day. For us, this was our best day of the trip, we ate our meals at the restaurant and spent the entire day snorkeling. Beach towels are available upon request at the front desk for use after being in the blue Lagoon. No snorkeling gear is available from the hotel so bring your own if you have it, but this was a really enjoyable day for us. In summary, we were glad to experience the real Jamaica by staying at a place that is off the usual tourist route, but our experience of the people and the we stayed at does not entice us to ever go back. Still, after we got back home we were very grateful to have been born where we are and to be so fortunate Be certain that you’re prepared for a true Jamaican experience before booking this place. If you want a Carefree visit, I would advise that you stay at a resort in a tourist area.

We loved Kanopi House and it was a perfect place to chill for 5 days. We stayed in Hummingbird which is the budget option here. The room is smaller than the others meaning the bed is a small queen but was really comfortable. The room was always spotless and smelt good when we returned after a hard day out😀. We loved the outdoor shower and the terrace in the trees. At night birds and lizards landed on our roof but no bugs entered the room. We ate dinner most nights at the hotel as it was easier than driving out. Meals were similar price to what you would pay at a tourist spot elsewhere - Jamaica isn’t cheap so c USD 35/ head depending on what you ordered. Usually just 1 course so it stopped us overeating! Meal requests were also available- we wanted Oxtail and Curry goat and they were tasty. Food quality ranged from good to excellent. We had an occasional breakfast which was fine but often preferred some fresh fruit we bought along the way and fresh blue mountain coffee that was in our room. I agree that some maintenance is needed and the manager said this is underway - a dock by the boathouse and repair to the ladder into the lagoon. However this didn’t detract - in a way it is part of the charm. What is special is basically having the Blue Lagoon as your own pool and sleeping in the jungle while enjoying AC and having a comfy bed. There are a few insects by the lagoon that bite so use the complimentary insect repellent when sunbathing or hanging out in the evening but they weren’t bad. I would recommend a car; we visited Boston Bay (jerk is not as good as Buff Bay) , Winfred’s Beach - great vibe; Port Antonio , Frenchman’s Cove (beautiful but use 20/head - use JD it’s cheaper!) and Reach Falls. Staff ranged from fine to very friendly.

One of the most magical places we have ever been. If you want to be far from the beaten path, away from tourist hotspots, and immersed in the peace & tranquility of nature, check out this very special place. I'm not a sun-lover as I inherited my Irish mother's fair complexion and intense sensitivity to heat/sun. But here I could enjoy myself fully without getting sunstroke since the property is nestled in the forest. There's even shade over the Blue Lagoon for the first half of the day. But there's plenty of sunshine for those who love to soak it up. You can swim in the most magnificent waters of the Blue Lagoon just steps from your own little treehouse. The food was also amazing and available all day long. It really is paradise on earth. The whole of Portland Parish is very special. Keep in mind though that there are a ton of steps as it's on a steep hillside, which will only work for those who don't mind climbing hills every day. Since it was the only exercise we were getting, we loved getting "buns of steel" on vacation :-). And the staff! What an incredibly kind, helpful, and warm group of folks. We enjoyed meeting everyone: Curt, AJ, Angela, Terri... every single staff member was so helpful. We woke up to a flat tire one morning and they handled everything for us while we went swimming. The only drawback: the road to the hotel from the main road is terrible, so if you drive on your own, be sure to come with a jeep or 4-wheel drive. Hopefully someday they can improve that road. But otherwise, this is a 5-star place for nature lovers. The attention to detail was truly remarkable, from the soft sheets to the comfy beds, to the clean and spacious bathrooms, to the high-end furnishings... what a place!!

What a pity! This place could have so much potential with its nice location (however when we there there the lagoon was not blue and clear at all) and amazing beautiful rooms (however be aware that there are very different rooms so make sure you book the right one!). This all is however seriously spoiled by some really ignorant staff. Some simply give you the feeling that you are disturbing or are not willing to help at all. For example, while carrying a suitcase down the many steps in the forest I was asked by a servant walking up the stairs where the keys of the room were but not a hand was offered in helping carrying the suitcases. Some other staff members were happily more friendly and willing to help. So, let’s make sure the good ones are not suffering of the behavior of the ignorant ones. Another example. It looks if no one cares about the surrounding. In the forest we saw everywhere empty bottles, the paths are not cleaned and the stairs into the water are rotten. Worst was the restaurant. The view is great but ridiculous prices for super simple food. We had to pay 20 dollars for an omelet with veggies. When we indicated at check-out that this was not ok the receptionist agreed but was not able to change anything. Our advice is to book another place where you get real service and more quality for a decent price!!!!

Kanopi Hotel was the most disappointing accommodation during my family’s recent trip to Jamaica. It was clear that the hotel has been resting on the laurels of its proximity to the Blue Lagoon and perhaps its former glory days when the property was new and in better shape. It also seems to be using its ecotourism brand to get away with minimal upkeep. We stayed in the Almond Treehouse, which was spacious and tastefully decorated, but in dire need of some sprucing up. It certainly did not resemble the luminous photos we had seen on the website. The pathway leading to our cottage was a mess (a breadfruit had fallen and burst on the steps and wooden banister, attracting all kinds of bugs, and no one bothered to clean it up throughout our 3 night stay). In the room, the bathroom in particular was a huge disappointment. When we arrived, one of the faucets for the face basin was leaking, spilling over on to the counter top, leaving a puddle there and on the floor. We alerted the reception and they simply sent someone to turn off the water connection to the faulty faucet, which remained unusable throughout our stay. The shower was in need of a fresh coat of paint, the shower curtain was dingy and moldy and the toilet itself was old and worn. Even the access to the Blue Lagoon was a letdown. When we went to take out kayaks on the lagoon, we discovered that the access area was a small unkempt strip of mud, pebbles and exposed tree roots, with all sorts of fishing detritus scattered around. When I voiced this observation out loud, the attendant replied that they were in the process of cleaning up from a storm. Still, I wondered why had they not built a proper dock to facilitate better access to the water like other properties nearby, and why this "access" was advertised on its website if it was in such poor condition. All these defaults mean that Kanopi Hotel is not worthy of a 4 star hotel status, and certainly not at the exorbitant price that we paid, $500+ per night! (which we discovered upon arrival was even more expensive than the local quote we had been given in our previous correspondence with the hotel). Throughout our stay, I kept thinking that the hotel was far from the ecotourism vibe it projects online and more in-line with traditional extractive tourism ventures common on the island. It was clear that the profits being earned were not being reinvested in property nor its environs. I can only hope that the staff is well paid. Even the “road” leading up to the hotel itself was in a most horrendous state, full of pot holes and unlit. I left Kanopi House feeling like I had been scammed. And now that I have discovered similar reviews, affirming that my experience was not a one off thing , but a part of a general trend (of charging high prices and delivering a sub par hotel experience) I am left to believe that this is indeed the case. As a Jamaican, I feel a duty to report this hotel to the Jamaica Tourist Board.

Had a wonderful stay here with my girlfriend, everyone was so friendly and helpful. The room was amazing you really live in the green beautiful nature and its a 100 meters walk to the blue lagoon where we snorkel med turtles. On the evening we sat on the restaurant dock, sip on some good drink with a great view over the sea and listened to the birds and nature nightlife. If you looking for a peace and relax stay I really recomend Kanopi house. 10/10 Thanks alot Henry and the other staff for making our trip very special.

Kanopi House was the perfect escape, in our private bungalow tucked into the natural surroundings of the jungle on the coast. I’ve traveled all around Jamaica on four separate trips and Portland is now my favorite parish. Pure and uncut, Kanopi stays true to the area. We loved being able to swim in the Blue Lagoon — both in the morning and evening — from the hotel. The staff was very warm and welcoming, helping us discover other things to do in the area.

As someone in a high-ranking executive role, my schedule is always demanding and requires me to be constantly on the move. However, I longed for a vacation where I could hit the pause button and fully immerse myself in my surroundings. Kanopi House not only met but surpassed my expectations in this regard. The enchanting natural atmosphere, the warm and welcoming staff, the mouthwatering cuisine (a special mention to Chef Daniela), and the overall relaxing vibes made this trip the most exceptional one I've experienced in years. Considering I travel a minimum of three times annually, that's saying something. Burchell and the entire team made us feel like part of their family, and it's safe to say that we will definitely return in the future.

We just returned from a week’s stay at Kanopi House, and absolutely loved this magnificent setting in the the peaceful, lush parish of Portland. This place has so much to offer for travelers looking to enjoy the natural beauty of Jamaica. Located right on the Blue Lagoon, guests have free access to swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding on the Blue Lagoon and some of the prettiest waters in the Caribbean Sea. We honestly didn’t feel the need to leave Kanopi House, as just enjoying the sea was enough for us (although there are plenty of other amazing things to explore in the area). We loved paddle boarding around the bay, spotting sea turtles, stingrays, starfish, and colorful fish in the shallow, blue waters. We also loved kayak rides out to Monkey Island (which has a swing over the water!) and around into the next bay over, where we swam at San San Beach. Kayaking out of the bay to your right will bring you to breath-taking sea kayaking along rocky cliffs. For strong swimmers, there is a rope swing at the far end of the Blue Lagoon. The food was outstanding, and Danielle (one of the chefs) personally worked with us to create vegetarian meals of our choice. We also had a small refrigerator, sink, dishware, and hot water pot in our kitchenette, which was helpful for having occasional light breakfasts or snacks in our room. Kanopi provides bottled water as a courtesy from Jamaica's famous springs, which we really appreciated! Burchell, the manager, was the ultimate host and exceptionally kind, gracious, and accommodating. He also went out of his way to help us find alternative transportation to Kanopi House, when our delayed flight caused us to miss the bus. Finally, nothing beats waking up to a wall of green, surrounded by the rainforest on all sides each morning. Kanopi is a rare gem!
