Luxury accommodations at affordable prices

Tamarind Great House is nestled in the hills above Oracabessa amidst tropical gardens on a 13-acre estate in northeast Jamaica, a 30-minute drive from the town of Ocho Rios. The great house offers a uniquely environmentally friendly setting with luxury accommodation at affordable prices. It is situated in the middle of nature, but close to the beach and coastal resorts.

Big rooms, beautiful gardens, great views

The colonial style building, with big rooms, gardens and great views is in the middle of a former plantation, is only 25 years old, but was built and decorated to simulate the feel of a 19th century great house. Guests love Tamarind Great House’s relaxed vibe, spacious bedrooms, and large balconies– far from the crowded tourist towns. It is a calm and relaxing place; you can spend all day on the verandah taking in the views and watching hummingbirds feed.


A ganja friendly property

Tamarind allows guests to smoke anywhere on the property – except in the rooms. A herb house visit can be arranged after airport pick up. in Montego Bay or Kingston and the great house will be happy to facilitate transportation to a herb house in Ocho Rios for guests to replenish their stash or just hang out in a smoking lounge for a few hours. Ganja farm tours can also be arranged.

Off the beaten path

You leave the coastal road and drive up a modest country road through verdant hills and tropical flora and fauna to get to Tamarind Great House. If you want a taste of Jamaica that is different from the mass tourism resorts along the coast, this is definitely a place to consider.

Dining at Tamarind Great House

Meals are served on the veranda and are one of the highlights of staying at Tamarind Great House. While you enjoy one of Gillian’s lovely breakfasts you can watch birds fluttering past and take in the beautiful flowers and plants. The ambiance is unbeatable.
