The Caves, an intimate resort in Jamaica


The Caves

Accommodations at The Caves in Jamaica

We know, we know — sleek is in. These days, hotels are all about city sophistication and designer interiors, even in the islands. But does everything always have to be so angular and urban? Thankfully the answer is "no" at The Caves, where the intimate resort takes its cues from the idiosyncrasies of Mother Nature. Built into limestone cliffs in Negril's West End, this tranquil ten-acre hideaway has an Aveda Amenity Spa, saltwater pool and just thirteen accommodations. Within the suites, cottages and singular four-bedroom villa, you might find a hand-painted glass window, outdoor shower or handcrafted king-size bed. Bright colors abound, as do intimate spaces, such as private dining areas in natural alcoves. Mornings find guests leaping from the 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.
