GeeJam

Where rock 'n' roll meets peace 'n' tranquillity

GeeJam is a world-renowned hotel. Nestled amongst natural tropical beauty on a stunning beach, it is perfect for a peaceful retreat.

You can really escape from the rest of the world yet be only a 10 minute drive away from the town of Port Antonio and close proximity to Fisherman's Cove – voted one of the top five beaches by Condé Nast. The resort is home to one of the Caribbean's leading recording studios where many famous musicians have produced albums (with tours available so you can see for yourself). 

This boutique hotel comprises of just seven rooms, each with genuine Jamaican character and its own style – some with balconies overlooking the ocean for an uncompromisingly luxurious Jamaican holiday.

Awesome!!!

Saskatoon SK Canada

We have just returned another visit to Geejam and it was just as wonderful previous times. We prefer this hotel because we appreciate the privacy, personalized service and the under crowding of smaller boutique places. If you like quiet, privacy, beautiful views, personable staff and gracious hosts then this is the place for you! Everything was professionally handled, right from booking, arrival and through to our departure. On arrival we were greeted with a welcome cocktail then shown to our room where our luggage awaited. We stayed in Ska our first visit and absolutely loved the view from our covered deck. It was very private and almost like camping in the jungle. Our favourite is Drum and Bass as it has more living space, a large bathroom and huge deck with stunning views. Accommodations are meticulously clean and comfortable. You also get a small fridge stocked with soft drinks, beer and snacks. I believe that if you stay more than 5 nights you also get complimentary laundry and ground transportation to and from Kingston airport. It is very comforting to know that all it takes is one call (with the cell phone they give you at check in) to arrange for a car to take you on an excursion or to order drinks, food or pretty much anything you desire. This removes all of the stress and leaves you free to truly relax knowing everything will be taken care of. It is the only hotel we have stayed at where my husband turns into a couch potato, which is a good thing! That said, there are several nearby places ideal for day excursions. River rafting on the Rio Grande (and Belindas for lunch), Frenchman’s Cove, and Reach Falls are very enjoyable. The owners Jon Baker and Steve Beaver are great hosts and always interested in how your stay is going or how they can be of service to make it better. It was my birthday on our last visit and I was pleasantly surprised and appreciated the complimentary bubbly and dessert. All of the staff are really great people and so eager to please. We have gotten to know many who remember us from year to year, so it’s like coming home, seeing friends and catching up. We felt so spoiled. The food at Bushbar is some of the best we’ve ever had on the island, and the complimentary breakfast is awesome. Although they do have menus, with enough notice, you can pretty much order anything you want. All you have to do is ask. The hotel’s private beach is down a 100+ step path or you can always call for a car. The access to the water is down a few steps from the beach to a sheltered swimming area. The sandy bottom bay is great for cooling off and the adjoining park is lovely. There are washrooms and a changing area and, as always, a refreshment is only one call away. We were often the only people at the beach. In the past year Geejam has made some changes. There is now a gorgeous infinity pool beside the newly expanded Bushbar, which also has a new kitchen. There are also 12 Rhumba rooms near Ska that are very close to completion (don’t worry they won’t interfere with Ska’s privacy). Off property, but within walking distance, is a convenience store with snacks, pop and liquor etc. The hotel can also provide anything you need should you not want to venture out. And speaking of venturing out, everyone we met on our walks was pleasant and friendly. Port Antonio and Geejam are a small piece of paradise that we hope to continue returning to for as long as we can.

Amazing & unique stay

The Geejam is an amazing property in a truly unique destination. The combination of untouched natural beauty of Port Antonio + the top-notch service at the property. What we love most about Geejam/Port Antonio is the laid back vibe combined with the service. We had the pleasure of staying at the Panorama Villa, a property that is both operated and serviced by the Geejam staff. The is perched in the middle rain forest and situated with amazing sea views. Their gym in the rain forest was also a highlight. Geejam has a private beach just steps from the property, and it's just a great place to relax and swim. Their co-owner, Steve, is an amazing host with a good personal touch, as he frequently checked in on us to see if everything was well. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will definitely be back again.
