Martel was a gentleman. Very knowledgeable about the areas we traveled through and of course the culture. We got to have a truly authentic experience including local food, and people. We had no shortage of smoke and the beauty of the ganja farm was a a sight to behold. Terrific experience with a fantastic guide. I highly recommend the experience and if you’re lucky enough get Martel you can feel secure in knowing he will take care of you. Top notch experience that we will never forget and definitely do again.
This is one of the most unique places I’ve ever been to in Jamaica or almost anywhere in the world. It’s not obvious when you first show up, but you soon realize that Ganja (Herb as the locals call it) is all around the beautiful mountains surrounding the retreat. I truly enjoyed meeting the local Herb farmers and trying a variety of strains. Highlights were also walking through some of the growing fields (the smells are so nice) as well as getting to sit down and help trim. The people in the community of Kentucky are friendly and inviting. In addition, Mel and her team of women made me feel welcomed and cared for. Lots of attention has gone into making the cabins comfortable and charming. Lots of nature and birds and garden are amazing.
The Farm-to-Table dining experience was a pleasant surprise. Everything is super-local, super-healthy, and ethically sourced. Mel is a great chef who fuses traditional Jamaican dishes passed on from her grandmother with her own creations inspired from all over the world. The food is worth the stay in itself; she offers an affordable daily meal plan. I was so inspired Mel’s cooking that I signed up and took her Culinary Arts Class as well. There is great community gatherings most evenings around Mel’s Kitchen and full bar.
The retreat is located on a banana and coffee planation. The views from the top were not only a nice place to smoke, but literally some of the best sunsets I’ve seen in my life (and I’ve been to 45 countries).
This place will change you; it changed me!
Choosing Ganja Vacations is one of the best decisions I have ever made. From the beginning, all of our questions were answered. We never had anything to worry about, it was the safest trip I have ever taken. The pickup at the airport took us to a dispensary to grab our first taste of Jamaican weed. Cab driver took us for jerk chicken that was delicious. The accommodations at Sunset Beach were absolutely beautiful, and they had a half oz of dank waiting on us at the resort. Ganja Vacations hooked us up at the perfect place on the beach. Had a ganja farm tour scheduled for us, and our breakfasts were included in our package.
If you are thinking of taking a Ganja Vacation, do it. Give Norman a call, he had all the answers. It changed not only the way we vacation now, but it changed our lives. The mood, the weed, the food, the people, the ocean, and most importantly the change in myself. I cannot say enough good things about Ganja Vacations. As I write this review, we are online checking options for our next vacation.
