This eco-tourism gem, located on the eastern coast of Jamaica, consists of African inspired huts and tree houses in a lush rainforest on the cliffs overlooking the picturesque Boston Bay.
This is a relatively small resort, it only has 24 rooms; however, the fact that some of these rooms are actually tree houses immersed in a rainforest makes the hotel property look larger than it really is.
There are rooms to suit every price range; from simple African huts that start at approximately US$35 per a night, to an upscale Royal African villa with suites that costs approximately US$220 per a night.
These African themed huts and tree houses are the perfect place to go if you want to disconnect from the routines of life and reconnect with nature. If the idea of falling asleep to the sound of waves, and waking up and finding you are eyelevel with the birds soaring over the sea in the near distance, this is the place for you.
The fact that you can watch the sunrise across the sea in your bed makes this the perfect place to start off the day. The tree houses also offer you a panoramic view of Boston Bay and the Mountains in the background.
Great Huts also has an extensive collection of Jamaican and African artwork and a library on property. If you want you can organize yoga classes or get a private massage on property.
An extra bonus is this resort is located in one of the most beautiful locations in Jamaica and there are a variety of activities available. You can go surfing, visit a waterfall, go hiking, mountain biking, bird watching, caving or simply spending the day at the beach.
The easiest way to reach the resort is to fly into Kingston the capital city and take the Knutsford Express bus service to Port Antonio. If you don’t want to take the Knutsford Express bus service you can easily organize private transportation.
