Within two hours of leaving Grand Cayman, you could be breathing in the cool, crisp air of Jamaica’s Blue Mountains as you wander through lush tropical gardens. You could be sipping a rum cocktail in the same spot that legends such as Bob Marley, the Rolling Stones and Marianne Faithful did before you, or you could be enjoying a blissful Aveda-designed massage in the Living Spa. Within two hours, you could be at Strawberry Hill.
Perched 3,100 feet above sea level, Strawberry Hill, a former coffee plantation, is a name most often associated with its owner, Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records and the man who launched Bob Marley’s career.
But Strawberry Hill is much more than a destination for musicians, performers and fashionistas: it’s a luxury boutique hotel that mixes Caribbean heritage with health-conscious living.
The altitude of Strawberry Hill offers a welcome respite from the heat and humidity of the lowlands and the 360 degree panoramic views take in coast, city and mountains. The 50-acre property offers elaborate botanical gardens, an abundance of fruit trees and the living spa, offers Ayurveda-inspired treatments to help you unwind and rejuvenate.
The combination of relaxation and sophistication at Strawberry Hill means you can just as easily spend your days lying by the infinity edge pool or strolling in the gardens, as you can exploring nearby rivers, swimming in waterfall pools or undertaking full-day guided hikes.
When you’ve worked up an appetite, you can choose from a variety of dining locations and sample the acclaimed ‘New Jamaican Cuisine’ of Strawberry Hill, which blends traditional Jamaican dishes and spices with international recipes, as well as a full vegetarian menu.
At the day’s end, enjoy a cosy drink by the fireside and admire the photo gallery of some of the musical greats who have been guests of Strawberry Hill, before you retire for the night.
The 12 luxurious Georgian-style cottages, featuring hand-carved fretwork, four-poster beds, luxurious linens and sumptuous mahogany furniture, cannot fail to seduce you. After a blissful night’s sleep lean out over your spacious veranda and watch the mountain mists clear, as you decide how much, or how little, you want to do with your day.
