Rustic enchantment: Jamaica’s beach huts and bungalows

Ever dreamed of waking up to the sound of surf crashing against a nearby shore as a salty breeze flies through your open window? If so, Jamaica’s seaside huts and new rustic bungalows may be exactly what you need.

Beach Huts

GoldenEye offers the feeling of seclusion alongside the amenities of a resort stay. The huts are the most recent addition to the property and each one is a brightly painted, free-standing structure designed to promote indoor-outdoor living. These luxurious huts boast high ceilings, oversized windows and a beautiful view from every angle. Enjoy a cup of coffee against the backdrop of Jamaican shoreline on your walk-out porch or roll over for a few more minutes of sleep in your dreamy white bed.

Great Huts Resort 

Whether you prefer a rustic African hut or a luxurious tree house, Great Huts has a room for every taste and prince point. These eco-friendly lodgings give discerning traveler an opportunity to enjoy rustic dwellings that are comfortably furnished, uniquely decorated and spaciously nestled in the forested compound of the resort. Each room is a unique creation displaying local artwork and craftsmanship inspired by the island’s strong African roots.

Zimbali Retreats 

Zimbali lodgings are a harmonious marriage of modern technology and a natural way of life – and they are the perfect way to reconnect with Mother Nature. Every aspect of your stay is designed with the beauty and peacefulness of nature in mind. These rustic cottages are tucked away in the mountains and each one is outfitted with snacks, coffee, WiFi and a private porch to keep you close to Jamaica’s earthy beauty. Aside from the lodgings, Zimbali hosts events and activities from drum circles and creative workshops to farming expositions and cooking classes.

Over-Water Bungalows

Come November 2016, guests will be able to indulge in Tahiti-style bungalows perched on a deck over the pristine Caribbean waters at Sandals Royal Caribbean Montego Bay. The first-of-their-kind bungalows in the Caribbean are available to book now and include infinity pools, see-through glass floors and over-the-water hammocks for the ultimately luxurious and seamless ocean experience that used to be endless flight hours away. Not anymore.
