We stayed at Kanopi House for 3 nights in July and it was truly paradise. This was our first visit to Portland and we loved this side of the island. Kanopi House is just an amazing beautiful place. We stayed in Spanish Elm and it was just incredible. It is one of 6 or 7 Treehouses as they call them. All of the Treehouses are set and tucked away in different spots on the property so each is very private and you have the feeling that the place is all your own. Each is beautifully furnished with handmade furniture and art by local artisans and has such a warm and comfortable feeling. Also each Treehouse has their own balcony or outside living area with comfortable lounge seats. You are surrounded by the most beautiful lush vegetation and the whole property is so well maintained. We did have breakfast each morning and it was very good. You have a choice between a traditional type American or Jamaican meal. One day we did have all 3 meals at Kanopi each being excellent. The location of this property can't be beat as it sits on the Blue Lagoon and is by far the most beautiful spot we have stayed in Jamaica. We used the canoe's that are provided and went out everywhere... San San, Monkey Island, the reef and all around the lagoon. We met a local fisherman and he took us to Winnifred Beach and Dragon's Bay. There is a path you can take through the jungle to Winnifred Beach which is a ways but we did not try that. There really is a lot to do and see in the area. The hostess there can take care of anything you may need or want. If interested she will set up any tours or arrange taxi service for you. One evening she called a taxi to go to Boston Jerk and pick up some chicken for us and bring it back to Kanopi....now that's service! It is a hike up and down the steps to the Lagoon but beauty surrounds and each day we saw something new. The staff goes above and beyond here to make sure your stay is comfortable and your needs are met. We really can't say enough about Kanopi House... it's just a piece of Heaven and just a peaceful and remarkable place to relax and have fun.
Kanopi House is now our #1 spot in Jamaica!
