High up in Jamaica’s Kentucky mountains

Good Hope Retreat is located in western Jamaica’s Kentucky mountains 2000 ft above Bluefields Bay, about an hour and a half from the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay and a little over an hour from Negril. The Retreat is comprised of 2 secluded handcrafted cottages – each with its own distinctive character amid lush gardens, wandering trails, fruit orchards, the sounds of songbirds and an astonishingly beautiful view of the surrounding forest and the sea beyond. And, because the Retreat is at such a high altitude it never gets hot in the daytime. Bluefields beach is about a 10-15 car ride to the bottom of the hill for those who’d like a change of scenery.

Quiet, peaceful, secluded and very beautiful

This is a true retreat – quiet, peaceful, off-the-beaten-track and very beautiful – far away from Jamaica’s well-known, heavily traveled tourist areas with food prepared from fresh local products and cabins that are perfectly integrated into the natural environment. Good Hope Retreat is a perfect getaway for people who appreciate nature, couples looking to re-connect, hikers, writers, musicians, poets, stargazers and birders. Hosts, Sean and Geneva are fabulous; their warm and friendly hospitality will make you feel at home and their incredibly fresh, delicious, authentic Jamaican cuisine will leave you wanting more every time.

You’re in ganja country

Guests are allowed to smoke anywhere – except in the cabins. And, a herb house visit can be arranged after airport pick up. There are lots of small ganja farmers in the area some of whom visit the Retreat from time to time so you will not have any difficulty finding a few local strains to enhance your vacation experience.

Start the day with a hearty breakfast

You’ll open the veranda doors each morning to clean mountain air, relax in a hammock, do some yoga or just enjoy the view. It is the perfect place for a relaxed breakfast while the sun’s first rays of the day fall through the curtains and illuminate the table area. Breakfast portions are big enough to get you through the day until dinner. It comes with two courses: seasonal fruits with coffee and a warm meal as a second course–perhaps, ackee and saltfish with fried plantain and bammy (cassava flatbread) or oatmeal porridge and johnny cakes (fried dumplings).
