About Us
With experience developing and operating all-inclusive Couples Resorts in Jamaica, Jane and Lee Issa sought to design a boutique hotel for travelers looking for a more intimate and purely authentic tropical escape. Within these idyllic surroundings on the beach or the cliffs, combined with a wonderful staff, passionate about exceptional service, Idle Awhile and Hide Awhile exude a carefree and enchanting environment for singles, couples and families alike. “Welcome Home”

IdleAwhile is a boutique hotel with eight rooms and eight suites. Located on a prime location on Negril’s famous Seven Mile Beach, guests can stroll in either direction and find cafes, bars and nightlife. The hotel has a beach-chic ambiance with gracious staff and comfortable accommodations. For action a little further afield, we can arrange for a taxi to the town of Negril (eight minutes) or to the West End Cliffs (fifteen minutes), where you can find a variety of restaurants, bars and shopping. Negril is one hour’s drive from Sangster International Airport, in Montego Bay.

The Beach
Situated in the most prime location on Negril’s pristine Seven Mile Beach, IdleAwhile beach offers endless sunshine, soft sand and warm water. Stake your private spot in the shade or stroll the beach for diversions that include glass bottom boat rides, sailing and snorkeling; sample Jamaican restaurants, bars and nightlife along the way.

Meals are served alfresco at Chill Awhile, our beach restaurant. Delight in international cuisine with tantalizing Caribbean flavors. Jamaica’s renowned herbs and spices—fiery Scotch bonnet pepper, pimento, nutmeg, ginger, tamarind and sweet coconut—are added to dishes made with fresh seasonal produce, as well as local seafood. For guests in the one bedroom suites and villas, a private chef can be arranged.
