“magical”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

As a marketing sales person, very rarely is one stuck for words to describe an experience !
BUT, words can not do justice to time we spent at GeeJam !

Having travelled from Australia,it was with a little trepidation,we ventured into the unknown
to attend our Best friends Wedding, we had no idea the luxury and hospitality that awaited us.

Yes , the trip from Kingston by road is a little torturous, , especially after a long flight, but forget it, what awaits you is mindblowing, the welcome, the service, the facilities, it goes on.
there is a lot that has been written about the resort the private beach, the rooms, the Bar the restaurant and how fabulous they are....we condone that 100%!

Steve, and his team are the perfect hosts, forever obliging to sort your every need,and make you feel totally at home. I could not think of a better place to go for that private couple holiday , or as we did attend the most amazing wedding, staged and hosted by the Geejam team.

Thanks guys and girls, we will be back !!
fantastic wedding

My husband and I spent 4 amazing nights at Geejam and it was absolutely fantastic. The staff and Steve made us feel at home the entire time we were there. Although we traveled to several beaches in the area, Geejam's private beach was our favorite. The water at the beach was a perfect temperature and the beach beds were great to lay out on. We also spent a lot of time at our very comfortable bungalow relaxing on our private deck with an amazing view of the ocean. When we did venture out of Geejam to explore Port Antonio, the drivers had great suggestions on where to go and were always available for pick up and drop offs. The food at Geejam was also amazing - our favorite was the Jamaican breakfast - Salt fish and Ackee. My husband and I do a lot of traveling and our trip to Jamaica was one of our best - mostly due to our stay at Geejam.

Do you need a luxurious, peaceful interlude - a chance to chill out while your brain resets and you're ready to re-enter the fray! I know where you should go - it's an enclosed, secluded, tropical haven called Geejam - on the side of the coastal hills of northeastern Jamaica, in Portland Parish, close to Port Antonio. An odd name, you say? Well, I learned where it came from, but you'll have to go there yourself to find out...!!!
The property spreads up from its own beach, and consists of about half a dozen villas, named after various types of Jamaican music, such as Mento & Rock Steady. The owners are in the music business, too, and there's a professional recording studio on the property, so you might see some well-known faces. They're usually sated with attention, so a nod & a grin will suffice.
Each villa is different, yet self-contained, nestled amid tropical vegetation, and extremely comfortable - like a cocoon, into which you can crawl and be pampered - and there's Wi-fi all over the place - in case you just can't let go!
One villa has its own pool, but hammocks and hot-tubs abound, and they're all connected to the main building, with its restaurant, bush bar and open air pool table, by paths and wooden walkways. You can meander along, or choose to sit, or lie back, on judiciously placed sofas, and gaze at the birds, flowers or ever-changing sky; at certain times of the year you'll be refreshed by a brief warm shower.
The staff are attentive, but discreet, the food is excellent, and the drinks imaginative. But don't fear that you'll become bloated & out of condition, because you HAVE to experience the beach - and that requires exercise! As you'd imagine, it's all downhill along paths & down steps, past guava and ackee trees, with sightings of hummingbirds - across a quiet road and you're confronted by enticing, fragmented views of an enclosed bay. Geejam has its own power boat, and the usual water sports, but you can just stretch out in a hammock or on a soft, colourful mattress under a thatched roof, if you wish. Then the healthy part, a leisurely climb back up the hill - but no hurry - there's lots to see on the way.
I could go on, but that's enough - you need to go and find out for yourself!

My wife and I spent my birthday weekend at Geejam in November 2011. This is an excellent small and very cool boutique hotel set upon a hill in a tropical rain forest overlooking the blue water of Jamaica's north-east coast. Planning and coordination was superb, starting with the arrangements the hotel made for us for local transport and activities weeks before we arrived, the execution of which was flawless. The staff are courteous and genuinely friendly people. Each member, even the behind-the-scenes ones who don't need to interact with guests, make a point of introducing themselves by name and remembering yours. The food at the hotel's restaurant/stage/bar, Bush Bar, was really quite good and far exceeded my expectations. Be sure to have the Jamaican breakfast! Our private villa ("Mento") was spacious, well appointed and spotless. Amenities included Apple TV with plenty of good music selections, a fridge stocked with complimentary Red Stripe lager and mini bar items, a balcony with a hot tub and a super comfy double lounger from which you can see out over the tree tops to the sea. The hotel’s house band, the Jolly Boys, really must be seen. Theirs is an amazing story, sound and performance. This was our first trip to the Port Antonio area, which has a distinct, relaxed feel compared to the rest of the country, and outstanding natural beauty. Highly recommend is the leisurely rafting tour down the Rio Grande river through seemingly unspoilt tropical forest, which the hotel can arrange. Also consider having the hotel arrange private air service from Kingston (instead of taxi), which cuts the transit time from 2 hours to roughly 20 minutes in the air and another 25 in a taxi. It’s a bit more expensive, but was money well spent on our quick visit. Thanks Geejam, we’ll be back.
