While blending all the creature comforts of home, it’s very much a portal into authentic Jamaican culture.
Nestled in the heart of the bush, this Island Outpost property’s newly appointed seven double rooms, consist of three deluxe cabins, one suite, and a self-contained three-bedroom villa.
Also included are a state of the art Recording Studio, Healing Spa, Swimming Pool, Gym and Bushbar, forming an exclusive universe within the natural beauty of the grounds.
Recently nominated by the Jamaican press as one of “the top ten most fascinating places to hang out,” the Bushbar follows the overall Geejam mantra of a grassroots approach to relaxation, restoration and reinvention. Achieving a stylish equilibrium between ultra modern technology and the intrinsic grace of the natural island landscape makes this the Geejam signature trademark.
Located on six acres of lush San San Estate, the property extends from the foothills of the John Crow and Blue Mountain chains to the Caribbean waterfront, thereby connecting a palette of greens to vibrant hues of blue and turquoise.
Within immediate proximity is Frenchman’s Cove -- voted by Conde’ Nast as one of the world’s top five beaches -- and the equally enchanting Blue Lagoon, Geejam sits tall amongst several other stunning beaches.
The property borders Drapers, a little known village until Gwen Stefani of No Doubt gave it props at the 2003 Grammy Awards, as a result of the band recording their last album at Geejam. A ten-minute drive west will find you in the historic town of Port Antonio, the capital town of the parish of Portland, located on the northeast coast of Jamaica and shrouded by the Blue Mountains.
Home to the Errol Flynn marina, it boasts a thriving hub of local culture, with a varied nightlife, including Ska bars, Reggae sound-systems and nightclubs. Also within easy reach are excursions to the cascading Scatter, Reich and Somerset waterfalls -- a day’s rafting being a must at one or more of these extraordinary natural wonders. Hiking and jet skiing are also popular sports in this part of the island.
The Geejam ethos stems from synergizing local Jamaican flair with a singular approach to service, cuisine and accommodation. Whether it be for a vacation, a recording session, a photo shoot, a wedding, a honeymoon or just a fleeting getaway, you are invited to taste this uniquely modern experience.
The legendary Grace Jones summed up her recent Geejam stay in the guestbook, by writing simply,
”I came. I saw. You conquered me!”
