Rockhouse Hotel

West End Rd., Negril, Westmoreland, Jamaica

A sign reads "Spa Zone—Keep the Vibes Calm," not a tall order at this beautiful boutique hotel that attracts discerning travelers, honeymooners, and celebrities. Its cottages and villas are placed along a cliff and offer rustic but stylish accommodations. The cottages are built from rough-hewn timber, thatch, and stone, and each has a four-poster, queen-size bed. Where else can one stay in a thatched-roof hut that offers all the comforts including air-conditioning? Lush, tropical gardens ensure privacy at every turn. There are steps down to the sea, with bridges over gaps in the cliffs, where the water has carved out spectacular caves. A highlight is the spa, which is open to the public. You can indulge in one of the treatment rooms or a cliff-side cabana. There is also a yoga deck and a saltwater pool for guests only.
