Incredible Jamaican Resort Is Like Summer Camp For Adults

Incredible Jamaican Resort Is Like Summer Camp For Adults

Global travel may be more complicated than usual right now, but that won't stop us dreaming of our next long-haul getaway.

After lockdown, we're craving a break that pulls out all the stops, like this bucket-list worthy resort in Negril, Jamaica.

Described by adoring guests as "summer camp for adults", Rockhouse Resort & Spa offers an array of once-in-a-lifetime adventures and activities which can be tailored to your trip - with plenty of beachside chilling in between too, of course.

Let's start with the dreamy setting. Located in the laidback, bohemian town of Negril, the 40-room boutique hotel spans a craggy stretch of rock above the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Handily located ladders and stairways lead down to the waters, meaning you can take a cooling dip whenever the mood strikes you.

The plushest rooms are the hexagonal cottages dotted along the water's edge, with sea view terraces and thatched roofs made of dried grasses and reeds.

What better place to kick back with a cocktail or ice-cold Red Stripe while reggae records spin in the background?

Whether to take a snorkelling trip and gaze on the brain coral and fish below the water's surface, or take an invigorating Hatha Yoga on the pavilion with views of the blue horizon, Rockhouse caters to guests of all energy and ability levels.

If you want to dive in feet first (quite literally) you can always kick start your day with a spot of cliff jumping.

From a high wooden bridge nestled between two cliffs, thrill seekers can plunge into the glittering waters below - just don't look down before you take the plunge!

After all that activity, nourishment is needed. Luckily, the resort's food is reported to be lip-smackingly good and authentically spiced.

Tuck into grilled jerk lobster, fresh grilled fish and delicious snapper salads - washed down with a few more Red Stripes, of course.

With full bellies, and lulled by live music, guests retreat to their rooms and sleep in four poster beds under netted canopies - ready to do it all again when the sun rises over the ocean the next morning.
