Greetings from the Hotel General Manager

We welcome you home! We hope that you enjoy your stay with us. Every little detail means so much to us and we would appreciate immediate feedback on anything at all as there is nothing too big or too small for us to take care of. Take time to enjoy our ocean front Caribbean Spa that offers very professional service. We are large enough to serve you but small enough to care.

Insider Tip
  • Although it goes largely unused, tucked away on the second floor of a building in the rear is a television room with overstuffed seating.
Hotel Overview
  • Green tranquility
    This small resort 3 km (2 mi) from downtown Ocho Rios offers a private beach and more than 2 hectares (6 acres) of garden and tranquility for guests 13 and older.
  • Tropical air
    47 air-conditioned guest suites and four one- or two-bedroom cottages feature spacious verandas or balconies designed like open-air living rooms.
  • Water sports, spa
    No TV, radio, or clock intrudes between guest and rest. Low-key diversions include sailing, croquet, and the on-site KiYara Ocean Spa.
What to Expect:
  • Winston Churchill came and loved the light for watercolor painting. Actress Marilyn Monroe and husband/playwright Arthur Miller, playwright Noel Coward, and novelist Ian Fleming also visited. What they found at this hotel, and what still attracts an international clientele today, is spiritual refreshment far from the madding world. Sea, beach, gardens, tropical air, and the attentions of staff members each averaging 25 to 30 years' experience, recall the grace of the pre-electronic era. The Jamaica Inn, opened in 1950, has been family-owned for two generations.
Amenity Highlights:
  • The resort's 213-meter (700-foot) private beach fronting a little cove of calm water and snorkeling sites offers thatch shades, cushioned lounge chairs, and ample room for tranquil sunbathing. A few yards from the beach adjacent to a croquet lawn and a thatch-shaded bar, a 15-meter (50-foot) oval pool surrounded by a sundeck with cushioned lounge chairs provides freshwater swimming.

  • The Jamaica Inn offers 47 air-conditioned guest suites without televisions, radio, or clocks located in three buildings and a Blue Cottage (radio/CD player included). All suites provide views of the Caribbean Sea from either ground-floor verandahs or second-floor balconies. Colored periwinkle blue with white trim, buildings include outside balustraded breezeways leading to suites, with breezeway roofs supported by columned arches.

    Designed for relaxed, open-air living, all suites feature fresh flower bouquets, high ceilings; ceiling fans to supplement or substitute for air conditioning; louvered windows that open to sea breezes and louvered doors leading to verandahs or balconies; barefoot-friendly terrazzo floors; tropical wood furniture and colonial-Jamaica antiques; walk-in closets; tub/shower combinations in tile bathrooms; and historical West Indian prints on walls. Bedrooms are all white except for a pale-pastel accent wall. The resort's signature blue-and-white motif extends to verandahs and balconies.

    Large balustraded verandahs and somewhat smaller balconies function as open-air living rooms. They're furnished with overstuffed couches and wing chairs covered in white duck and include two-chair white-wood dining sets. Room service is complimentary.

Property Amenities
  • Named for an indigenous word meaning "Sacred Place of the Earth Spirits," KiYara Ocean Spa at Jamaica Inn offers an all-natural approach to massage, body treatments, facials, waxing, and nail care. Treatments employ fresh ingredients without preservatives and are blended immediately prior to a session. Secluded at the resort's far end on a bluff behind a bamboo gate, the spa offers massage and body treatments in private open-air rooms bordered by dense tropical foliage, with thatch roofs supported by hand-carved wood pillars. (Facials take place inside the spa.) Some treatments employ a rain shower; others an outdoor shower- both equipped with bamboo piping.

    Couples massage is offered on a terrace just above the sea; candlelit night sessions are available. Other massage options include one with smooth river stones. Body treatments include PiƱa Colada Body Polish, Caribbean Cooler (aloe blend), East Meets West (Ayurvedic herbs, local ingredients, rain shower), and Roots Renewal (aromatic Jamaican herbal roots). Facials include Tahitian (noni fruit) and aromatherapy.

    A library showcases the owners' family photographs and offers a communal puzzle, board games, books, and complimentary use of a computer with wireless Internet access. Renovated in 2005, the hotel's fitness room offers a treadmill, stationary bicycle, stair climber, and free weights.
