The Lion House Jamaica

Traveller (66)
Room & Suite (15)
Dining (14)


The Lion House is a Rasta guest lodge with 7 uniquely appointed rooms and exquisite terraces with breathtaking views some 1500 ft above sea level. Perched on top of 8 acres of lush bushland in the hills behind Ocho Rios, we offer simple and tasteful accommodation, beautiful breakfast (and on request, dinner) lovingly prepared with produce from our farm, and have an amazing nature trail for you to discover this spectacular land we are gifted to care-take. The Lion House is a place where people gather to explore, to transform, to rest, to meet: a beautiful window into a way of life that reconnects and rebalances. We offer an opportunity to relax, to find new energy, to get in tune with yourself, with the people and the world around you.
