"I developed Caribbean Essentials with places like Jake's in mind," said
Linda Hal the independent spa consultant and holistic therapist who worked closely with the team at Jake's to develop the treatments and conceptualize the project. "The property exudes a genuinely Jamaican vibe and charm that I just knew would work naturally wit my holistic approach to spa. Locals have always used herbs in teas and baths for medicinal purposes.
I developed Caribbean Essentials by pulling on the core of these healing rituals, adding a bit of honey here, some sweet orange and rosemary there, a little rum and grown sugar and so on. There's nothing in my mixtures that doesn't have a purpose!"
Guests and locals mingle cheerfully at Jake's, a 29-room resort, set on six acres of land. Dramatic cottages commune with the garden, sea and sky, near a secluded fishing village. The bohemian atmosphere comes as no surprise: Jake's is run by the Henzell family, also responsible for Jimmy Cliff's The Harder They Come, the hippest Caribbean film of all time.
