The Caves, an intimate resort, sits on top of a limestone cliff in Jamaica


The Caves

These days, hotels are all about city sophistication and designer interiors — even on the islands. But does everything always have to be so angular and urban? At The Caves, the answer is "no." This intimate resort takes its cues from the idiosyncrasies of Mother Nature. Built into limestone cliffs in Negril's West End, this tranquil 10-acre hideaway has two dining gazebos, a private dining cave, an Aveda Amenity Spa and a saltwater pool. The 12 cottages and four-bedroom villa boast bright colors and unique island design. Mornings find guests leaping from cliffs directly into the sea, while evenings are spent sipping Cliffhangers — watermelon juice with ginger and rum — in the Blackwell Rum Bar, tucked into a pair of limestone grottos.
