I recently stayed at Great Huts for 2 nights. I am not sure how I found out about the place, But am certainly happy I did. The room/hut was amazing (Bamboo Treehouse) and the service and staff was stellar. The grounds are well kept and very unobtrusive to the natural surrounding area. Amazing private beaches with incredible coral to snorkel.
I would recommend this place to anyone who may want to get closer to ACTUAL jamaican culture and nature and hit up somewhere off the beaten path.
Port Antonio is a great little town and feels less stressful then MoBay and Ocho Rios.
I traveled everywhere in Jamaica and found there to be more scenic destinations to the east of the island.
Definitely a destination not to be overlooked.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Great Huts: Paradise on the Edge is an oceanfront resort on the lush northeastern tip of Jamaica. Modeled after a traditional West African coastal village, at once both rough-hewn and modern, it is a convergence of nature, heritage, spirituality and technology. Off the beaten path, but not far from the bustle and night life of Boston Bay and Port Antonio, Great Huts' jungle-cliff-beach habitat is a distinctive ecological and cultural experience. The Africana House, a Rastafari Mansion by the Sea with high ceilings and Ethiopian-inspired decor throughout, has a spacious communal room, four regal bedrooms, a 5,000-square-foot rooftop deck and a lotus-shaped deep water pool, resting atop five acres braided with intriguing caves and hiking trails. Great Huts is perfect for the adventurer in all of us, an intimate yet communal getaway or a secluded corporate retreat. ... more less
