Lose the overproduced plastic feel at this authentic, rustic Caribbean hideaway.
This might not be your typical Jamaican retreat, but that's just fine. Located on the natural coastline of Treasure Beach, Jake's is surrounded by sweeping savannahs dotted with cacti and acacia. Here you'll see far more farmers than tourists, creating an authentic atmosphere.
Secluded thatch-roofed cottages have large verandas with oceanfront or garden views, and an equal amount of outdoor and indoor living space. And when you want to socialize, two restaurants offer local seafood, Jamaican standards, and even pizza. Respect for the environment imbues the cooking philosophy, with sustainable fish choices and produce from local farmers. Jack Sprat's is a local gathering place, and has live music on holidays, and weekly beach bonfires. (Don't leave without trying the signature rum bunch at Dougie's Bar.)
Need a spiritual getaway? Jake's offers oceanfront yoga retreats. The more adventurous can sign up for kayaking and mountain biking adventures, and more.
