Allinclusive Blue Mountain Paradise

Aug 17, 2007
If you want to escape from modern living and have a highly individual, all-inclusive luxury vacation in one of the most beautiful locations in the world then look no further than Strawberry Hill, a former coffee plantation perched 3000 feet high in the spectacular Blue Mountains of Jamaica.

The plantation was set up some three hundred years ago and once belonged to Horace Walpole, the Earl of Orford, who took the name from his estate in England, although strawberries were, and still are, grown there. As well as Strawberries, the lush gardens and winding trails are also home to some three hundred different plant species, including some very exotic varieties. The main building sits atop a mountain with sweeping views over the mountains and crystal waters of the Caribbean, whilst the guest accommodations are situated on the slopes to ensure complete privacy.

This is no ordinary all-inclusive resort. Strawberry Hill has just twelve Georgian-style guest villas which are absolutely stunning. Each one features romantic four poster bed with delicate muslin drapes, French doors on to spacious private verandas and fully equipped kitchens or kitchenettes. Jamaican art and photographs adorn the walls and bathrooms are simple with terra cotta and hand glazed tiles and deep bath tubs.

Dining at Strawberry Hill is an absolute delight. The chefs combine traditional local dishes and spices with international recipes to create what they call New Jamaican Cuisine. The excellent restaurant attracts not just tourists but artists, writers and politicians from Kingston society who make the forty five minute journey up into the mountains regularly so savour Sunday Brunch and relax whilst discussing the issues of the day. Indeed, Strawberry Hill used to be a bolt hole for the Rolling Stones and the late Bob Marley during the eighties.

As if all this isn't enough Strawberry Hill also boasts the Caribbean's only full serviced Aveda concept spa. The root of Aveda's holistic spa philosophy, Elemental Nature, is based on the five elements found in nature, namely infinity, fire, water, air and earth. Guests are asked to fill out the Aveda Elemental Nature questionnaire when they arrive so that the therapists can create personalised treatments based on your own elemental nature to bring you back in to balance. Some of the wonderful treatments on offer include the Fusion Stone Massage, the Body Elixir and the Himalayan Rejuvenation Treatment which is guaranteed to nurture the body and relax the mind.
