The #1 Boutique Hotel in Jamaica

You know that book 1000 Places to See Before You Die? Negril’s Rockhouse is in there.

In fact, you might think you have died and gone to heaven when you get here.

While most of Negril hangs its hat on the exquisite Seven-Mile Beach, the Rockhouse dares to be different by offering you a dramatic cliff top experience. There is no beach here, just a view that goes on forever to the west. And by the way, that would be the direction you want to be facing for the most beautiful sunsets in the world.

Jamaica-Rockhouse-Hotel-Pool-NegrilThe villas, the bar, the restaurants… the whole resort… hug the edge of the perfectly named Pristine Cove cliffs and give you a dazzling, dizzying perspective of the water and the coast.

Hang out by the horizon pool, or climb down the ladders into the cove below—the waters are perfect for snorkeling. If you’re feeling brave, make like you’re at Rick’s Café (just down the road) and jump from one of the cliffs.  If you’re feeling adventurous, book Chukka Jamaica’s Thrill Seekers Pass and take advantage of their free pickup.

Mind you, once you see your villa you might never want to leave your rooms. Talk about the ultimate in privacy. These thatch-roofed, stone-built beauties all face the ocean; you can watch the sunset from your bed.

Dense gardens of lush, leafy foliage spread out behind your villa, and surround your outdoor shower, which is open to the sky. Follow the steppingstones from your villa’s door to your private deck, complete with two chaise lounges and ladder to the grotto below.

Just in case you get hungry, the Rockhouse Restaurant, the Pushcart Restaurant & Rum Bar, and the Pool Grill and Bar are all nearby—and they all live up to the famous Rockhouse reputation.

Travel + Leisure, Condé Nast Traveler, National Geographic Traveler, Vogue, Modern Bride and many more prestigious publications all rave about The Rockhouse. And so do we.

So before you die, get there.
