Very nice place on the beach in laid-back Treasure Beach. We loved the simple rustic yet stylish and comfortable rooms and cabins at Katamah. They have created a little oasis which is the Katamah area. On one side the beach, on the other Kim's streetcorner bar and central part of Frenchman's Bay of Treasrue Beach. We were well looked after by most charming host Moni and team there. Very friendly and helpful. Access to communal kitchen with free coffee and tea and cool drinks available 24/7. Laundry servicw available, free parking on the area. The area feels safe and private with a fence around it yet somehow open end welcoming at the same time. Will surely come back.

This one is an all time best ever locations in the world, I will be back, I will bring others. It is simply Devine. Everywhere and I do mean everywhere you look is like living some Instagram dream. The beautiful details, gorgeous areas, the shared spaces, the individual huts with the outdoor shower on a tree. Safe with an easy vibe, you are warmed by the beautiful family here who make your stay here like a dream, helpful, funny and lovely. I had the best time, should I swing on the hammock?, walk to the beach out front for a dip? Or just be, here. I did find a treasure on treasure beach, you will too. John

I have been twice at Katamah, and is one of my favorite places in Jamaica, a perfect place to relax for a few days and enjoy treasure beach. The service has always been so familiar and willing to help with anything you need. I would highly recommend this place if you want to visit St Elizabeth. The chilling area with bed and sofas is just amazing, and the sunsets there are breathtaking.

Katamah Guest house When I decided to visit Jamaica for the first time I knew I did not want to stay in an all inclusive hotel and that I really wanted to find a unique experience for myself. After doing lots of internet searching I decided to stay at Katamah beachfront guesthouse in Treasure beach Jamaica. I was picked up at the airport by Phillip a super friendly and knowledgeable resident of the Treasure beach community, Phillip took me on a great drive down the coast to Katamah and we checked out the Mausoleum of Peter Tosh and had some incredible Jerk Chicken by the side of the road and I knew already that I had made the right decision. On arrival I was warmly greeted by Karim and Monika who showed me around the place and took the time to explain the sustainable tourism idea of Katamah and how it relates to the Treasure Beach community. All the time the sound of the ocean surf is a constant reminder of how close you are to the beautiful ocean and its almost empty beach. They showed me to my amazing room right on the beach, a super clean and perfectly arranged cabin in paradise. I was overwhelmed by the room and its proximity to the beach, for the next seven days with the relaxed atmosphere of Treasure beach and the Katamah staff I felt my body healing from the stresses of day to day western life. I meet amazing people from many different countries and helped myself to the use of the communal kitchen and complimentary coffee and loved the idea of the honour bar. The people of the town were amazing towards me and always had a smile and kind word. There was music in some of the bars in the area that you could easily walk to and simple dinner fare at three restaurants within minutes. If you love peace and quiet and are looking for a real experience with real people Katamah is the place for you. It has rustic charm with all mod cons and a friendly staff. It was the best vacation I have been on and I plan to go back again as soon as I can. I am not a religious person but my stay was almost spiritual as I felt connected back to life as it should be for all of us. Oh did I mention the incredibly beautiful Sunsets!! Thank you Katamah for helping me see what is truly important in life!

Katamah is one of my favorite places to stay. It's on a great swimming beach in a cool community in a beautiful place. Everything I love about Jamaica is going on here - tropical paradise, fun lovely people, incredible food, good tunes, great vibes. I've stayed six times and can't wait to go back. There's a nice older house with several rooms big and small - I've stayed upstairs in the Berry Suite and downstairs in the Laila Suite. Laila has a lovely veranda pointed at the sea. Berry has a fantastic deck amidst the beautiful treetops with views of the sea. I have a hard time choosing between those and the cabins like Amina and Maya which are closer to the water and make you feel like you're sleeping on the beach. All are nicely designed, artfully decorated, super comfortable, in beautiful natural settings. The rooms are around the edges of the lush seaside yard which has lots of comfy places to relax, read, socialize, picnic or nap with the sea a few steps away. Frenchman's Bay is a beautiful medium-sized cove that's great for swimming which is the killer feature for me. In the middle of the yard there's a small pavilion containing the communal kitchen where you can grab cold drinks or cook up some of great local fish and produce, chopping onions while you glance at the waves. My favorite breakfast spot Smurfs is across the street. There's a couple of great beach bars next door (Frenchman's Reef) and a minute's walk away (Eggie's) - both are great places to eat too. There's often live music at Frenchman's Reef or Kim's Place across the street. Whenever I hang out at these places I meet new people - very friendly folks and good vibes abound. The hosts Moni, Simon and Maya are lovely and very helpful - they can hook you up or point you to whatever you need including fun excursions. The staff is great and keep the place beautiful - each time I return it looks better yet. The place attracts fun charming guests -- the vibes are exceptionally good. Check it out - one of the best places in world.
