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

GeeJam is 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 compromises of just seven rooms, each with genuine Jamaican character and its own style – some with balconies overlooking the ocean for a uncompromisingly luxurious Jamaican holiday.

Serenity at its finest!

Well, where do I begin... Let me start off by talking about the fact that the reviews on trip advisor, helped me to decide on choosing Geejam as the resort I was going to stay at; to propose to my now fiance. The pictures do not do this gorgeous, private, resort justice. We were first greeted at the airport by the greatest driver, Steve (I had pre-arranged with Geejam to have one of their drivers pick us up). He began by taking our bags to the Mercedes Benz, that was parked outside. After loading our bags, he offered both my fiance and I, a variety of beverages form the large cooler he had in the trunk. I went with the classic Red Stripe, beer. My fiance did as well. We were also given two water bottles. From there it was a beautiful scenic drive through the mountains towards Geejam. Steve, answered our questions magnificently and pointed out local spots along the way that we should visit. After the mountain drive, you reach the beautiful town of Portland. A beautiful people, where people live with doors open and everybody passes you with the words "blessings my friend." Do not let the media or other's words influence you about the negative connotations you may have heard about Jamaica. Portland is simply "love and blessings." Once we reached Geejam, we were greeted by the beautiful staff. Particular mention here, goes to a staff member Naz, (Steve, give her a promotion, she can be the manager of that resort!) she handled all of our check-in details, offered us a complimentary drink, my fiance and I chose, Ting-a-Ling, a refreshing drink to say the least! We were escorted to our beautiful suite, Rocksteady, which had a fantastic, unobstructed view, with enough foliage around to make you feel you were in a rainforest. Modern furniture, coupled with the wood exterior of the suite, and a fantastic bathroom, was simply a great mixture of luxury and nature. Now, let's get to the food... As foodies, my fiance and I believe that we have developed a palate to distinguish between great food that has had time and preparation put into it, compared to dishes that have not. Geejam, has great food, plain and simple! For our complimentary breakfast, my fiance and I always shared our plates so I got the chance to try a variety of food. I am a Vegan and my fiance is a pescatarian. The Jamaican breakfast of the day was a great blend of vegetables (i.e. pumpkin, yam, aki,) and salt fish. I also had pancakes with fresh pineapple juice. For dinner, my fiance had a variety of seafood dinners from coconut shrimp to jerk shrimp, I had a few vegetarian dishes (there weren't too many vegetarian options, but the dishes they had were fantastic). I planned to have a surprise dinner on the night of the proposal and Naz setup a beautiful dinner with a menu that I decided on. Which included lobster, curry shrimp, coconut shrimp, rice and peas, mashed potatoes & stir fried vegetables. With a bottle of champagne of course! It was amazing! The dinner was setup on the beautiful terrace of Mento. I also proposed in front of the miniaturel, beautifully, flowing waterfall and stream they had on the resort. For my music lovers, there is a studio also located on the resort that has been used by some of the greatest artists in the world i.e. Drake, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Kendrick Lamar and the next greatest artist to use that studio will be Brandan Anthony. Also this is a little tidbit for the Rocksteady suite. Around 11 at night, after Geejam's restaurant/lounge, named Bushbar closes down, you can hear great reggae music coming from the street. Loud enough that its not a disturbance, where you can comfortably enjoy it from the comfy patio chair on the terrace and faint enough that when you go into your suite; you won't hear it at all (But the music doesn't have to stop, the t.v. comes pre-programmed with Netflix and youtube, so you can keep the music going if you choose). I sat on that patio chair with a glass of wine and enjoyed the vibes. Didn't want to come back.... But I'm going back! I definitely recommend this resort to anybody. I hope you all experience the serenity, good vibes and love that I did. Cheers, Ashley

Stay at Geejam

Antigua and Barbuda

We stayed at Geejam for two nights and I have to say it was fantastic. The location is so spectacular and we stayed in Rocksteady. Food and service were top class and where would you get a recording studio in your hotel. Live music there by the Jolly Boys was fantastic.We will be back!! Thank you to all the staff.
