Twelve tropical huts comprising The Caves Hotel overlook the Caribbean Sea from atop honeycomb cliffs. The 10-acre property embraces the island’s culture filling every room with handcrafted furniture, outdoor showers, Bob Marley albums and a minibar stocked with full-size bottles of local rum.
The resort’s post on the jagged precipice means no beach, however, the ocean becomes a natural pool with plenty of jumping-off points, and the rock wall opens to volcanic caverns to explore during a swim. Negril’s awe-inspiring seven-mile beach is within walking distance from the property for those craving sand in addition to sun and seawater.
The open-air restaurant serves organic local cuisine and is ornamented with candles and bougainvillea petals with waves crashing below. Guests can book a private dinner in a cave or starlit gazebo for an additional cost. The Blackwell Rum Bar serves complimentary cocktails made from its namesake elixir on stone tables crafted by Jamaican masons.
The intimate property is home to sundecks, a saltwater pool, hot tub, Jacuzzi and open-air spa, voted “Top Five Jamaican Spas,” by Ocean Magazine. To explore outside the resort, the all-inclusive rate includes kayaking, snorkeling, bicycle rentals and nature tours.
