Jakes

Calabash Bay, Treasure Beach, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica

Seaside charm combines with art to create a chic place that oozes personality. Each room or cottage is designed with unique colors and funky furnishings by Sally Henzell, who founded the resort, now managed by her son Jason. Signature touches include mosaic tiles and headboards and walls made from concrete that's had colored glass bottles inserted into it. Accommodations have outdoor showers or bathtubs with solar-heated water, and there's a yoga deck above the Driftwood Spa. Additionally, a jetty has been added. Jason encourages guests to get involved in the local scene, whether fishing with the locals or hitting a rum shop. The owners have also developed the nearby Lionel Densham Aerodrome, so you can arrive by private aircraft, and there is a helipad on the resort.
