The only reason I'm reluctant to post a review is that it might make it more difficult to get a reservation next time! But to have as many people as possible know of how wonderful Great Huts is is the least that the owner and staff deserve.
Our tree house was an extraordinary (literally, this place is anything but ordinary) space, with views from each window of either lush forest or ocean. The outdoor bathroom took a second to get used to, but became part of the experience as well.
The cliff top restaurant is incredibly romantic, especially on a full moon, and after dark we lay in bed bathed in the gentle blend of the sounds of waves, insects chirping, and reggae wafting up from the main road.
The small beach below Great Huts was perfectly laid-out, with plenty of hammocks and a good entry point into the bay for swimming.
Added to all this, the environmentally sound way that Great Huts has been constructed and maintained, and the efforts of the owner Dr Rhodes to contribute to the greater community of Portland Parish, deserve to be mentioned. A wonderful place all round.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Great Huts: Paradise on the Edge is an oceanfront resort on the lush northeastern tip of Jamaica. Modeled after a traditional African village, at once both rough-hewn and modern, it is a convergence of nature, heritage, spirituality and technology. Off the beaten path, but not far from the bustle and night life of Boston Bay and Port Antonio, Great Huts' jungle-cliff-beach habitat is a distinctive ecological and cultural experience. The African hut and Amerindian tree-house dwellings studded throughout the meandering, five-acre compound are comfortably furnished and decorated with uncommon African and Jamaican artifacts. ... more less
