Bath Fountain Hotel & Spa - Bath

bath-fountain-spa-hotel-saint-thomas-jamaica-hotelsSix miles north of Port Morant in the foothills of Saint Thomas where the John Crow and Blue Mountain ranges run into each other, the hotel sits amid breathtaking scenery - crystal-clear streams, majestic mountains, and lush green vegetation. It’s the only building in the area. This pink colonial hotel is the oldest of the hotels in St Thomas Jamaica, dating to 1747. It has 16 plain & sparsely furnished yet clean rooms; no A/C, but they now offer cable TV! Built originally as an infirmary for the mineral baths, it was run rather poorly by the Jamaican Tourist Board but seems to be making a welcome comeback. A bit old-fashioned, the hotel is utterly quiet and secluded, with just the hum of the nearby Sulphur River. The road getting there can be bumpy and rough due to all the rainfall in the area. But the rates include free 20-minute access daily to the recently renovated ceramic tile baths on the ground floor and, YES, they are wonderfully relaxing! They serve tasty Jamaican breakfast, lunch and dinner in the dining room. The property is gated with 24-hour security. All of the rooms have therapeutic hot and cold mineral water pumped in for private soaking and relaxation! Phone: 876.703.4345 or 876.703.4154. Visit them on the web.

Brown's Guest House - Prospect Main Rd, East Prospect (near Morant Bay)

browns-guest-house-east-prospect-st-thomas-jamaicaBrown's Guest House started as a B&B in 1990 with only 3 rooms. It now offers 10 comfortably furnished rooms, an awesome sea view and parking. It's hard to judge the place based on what you can see from the main road. I've passed this warm, inviting guest house too many times to count & it sits on a huge, nicely landscaped piece of property on the seaside with lots of trees and flowers. There is a main house and a 2-story building which house the other rooms. The guest rooms are clean and traditionally decorated. All are equipped with A/C and cable TV but no Internet, and some have kitchenettes. Guests can prepare their own meals or have them catered. Prospect Beach is a few minutes away. One of these days I intend to pop in for a visit! Phone: 876.982.6205 or 876.982.6720. Visit them on the web.

The guest house is situated on a 200-year-old former slave plantation, which is now Jah B and his Bobo Rasta family's large farm. They offer a couple of private rooms and dorm-style accommodations in rustic wooden cabins with shared bath. If you want a private bathroom, ask. Room prices range from US$30 to US$50 per night, and they can accommodate up to 35 hikers at a time. They will prepare delicious Ital veggie meals for extra cost. Jah B and his sons can arrange everything for you, including a capable trail guide or pick-up from Mavis Bank, Cedar Valley or the airport.

Whispering Bamboo Cove – 105 Crystal Drive, Retreat (Morant Bay)

whispering--bamboo-guesthouseThese affordable accommodations are more like a guest house than a "resort". Located on the south coast in Saint Thomas, just to the east of Morant Bay, it is very close to the candy-cane-striped Morant Point Lighthouse, Jamaica’s oldest, built in 1841. There are 15 above-average, airy, clean & comfortable rooms equipped with modern tropical furnishings, cable TV, in-room refrigerators, and some have A/C. The friendly staff serves a delicious Jamaican breakfast with lunch or dinner to order. Rooms either face the sea or the majestic Blue Mountains, but the views can be obscured by trees. Although beachfront, there's not much beach to speak of and the water tends to attract seagrass. A good swimming beach is just a short drive away. Phone: 876.982.2912.  Visit them on the web.

Whitfield Hall - Abbey Green (Blue Mountains National Park)

whitfield-hall-blue-mountainsAt the 4,000 foot elevation on the main trail to Blue Mountain Peak which, at 7,402 feet, is the highest point on the island, you will find this hostel-like accommodation catering primarily to hikers. Directly on the road to Penlyne Castle where the climb begins, it’s the perfect spot for a base camp. In this almost magical part of Jamaica, Whitfield Hall is a working coffee plantation dating from 1776, the last inhabited house from the colonial period. There are a variety of room options - from a private, 2BR cottage, to a small suite, to 8 very rustic dormitory-style rooms with shared bath, and the new Colonel Whitfield Room, dedicated to the original proprietor. The family-run inn is far from luxurious; no hot water and no electricity (lighting is by kerosene lamps called tilleys), but they have a large fireplace in a nice common area to fend off the night chill and a warm, peaceful atmosphere. Home-cooked meals are available. Enjoy hikes or mule rides to the peak or, if you don’t want anything strenuous, learn how coffee beans are cultivated and processed and enjoy your tropical surroundings. The roads are steep and rutted and you cannot drive beyond Mavis Bank without a 4x4. Most guests request a pickup from the inn. Phone: 876.927.0986. Visit them on the web.
