I made a return trip to Geejam with my family to celebrate my 50th birthday at the place that I have so far enjoyed best in all my travels. It really is a unique vibe set on a hillside amongst the rain forest overlooking a private beach with my favourite swimming place in the beautifully warm & blue Caribbean sea.
We stayed in Sanwood a three bedroom villa, with its own private pool a minutes walk through the lush vegetation to the Bushbar where the staff were not only friendly and engaging but a Geejam Team Member organised our daily excursions with our own driver every morning at breakfast after I had worked out in the gym with my two sons and enjoyed a stretch session. There is so much to do locally, we went rafting on the Rio Grande, had Jerk at Boston Bay,went to the marina and local market in Port Antonio as well as chilled on the decadent red four poster double beds on the Geejam Beach - where else would you find these and a full length mirror on a beach?
We thoroughly enjoyed the Spicy Lobster Pasta at The Bushbar whilst watching the in-house Mento band, The Jolly Boys on my birthday. The staff went the extra mile which really made it a special evening in a special place.
They have have just opened another hotel The Trident which has a totally different vibe, being a more elegant seafront hotel, still with the friendly engaging staff. Again we had another incredible night at Mike's Supper Club whilst being entertained by the in house Jazz band.
Geejam is unique, it's informal relaxed vibe may not be for everybody, it's not cheap, but worth every penny.
