Special, magical, spiritual these are the words that first come to mind when I describe our stay at Wilks Bay. We were greeted at the airport in Kingston by Warren, who was our driver for the 3 hour journey to Wilks Bay. He made a stop for drinks and patties and pointed out things of interest on our way. When we arrived at Wilks Bay we were greeted by Mary & Jim our lovely hosts, and also enjoyed the company of their daughter Nadia whom soon became fast friends. Jim and Mary were always ready and available to help make our stay special.
We arrived to a lovely vegan dinner (I am a vegan) but other wonderful non- vegan dishes were prepared for my husband. Many thanks to our two wonderful cooks/housekeepers, Sherice and Angela. They were constantly available to indulge our every whim, from cooking, food shopping, laundry and even a cold drink.
Jim invited us to join him in Qi Gong and meditation every morning. My absolute favorite spot for meditation ever! What a delightful way to start each day out on the jetty (pier) with sounds of the sea and the cooling breeze. During our stay Jim took us on several tours of the area, suggesting places to visit and restaurants to try. Jim and Mary also invited us out to join them at their favorite restaurant and to hear music at two different resorts.
I was concerned that we may get bored during our long 5 week stay, but I was wrong. We mostly opted to stay on the property where we loved relaxing and reading on this very private, small, low key, beautiful resort, with our own private beach/bay .We loved staying in the small, but adequate cottage just steps from the beach. Also, there are two lovely swimming beaches within walking distance. We also enjoyed long walks up in the hills with access just across the street. We enjoyed snorkeling and kayaking too. We were surprised by a private candlelit dinner on the jetty during a full moon. And on Valentine’s Day, dinner on the beach complete with torches and music. We even spent a few days at their other house on San San Bay, another beautiful spot where you can kayak to Monkey Island and Blue Lagoon. But hurray, this other property is for sale.
If you stay at Wilks Bay you won’t be disappointed!
Thanks again for one of our favorite getaways, we will return.
