Expert Review

In the heart of the Jamaican bush on the island’s northeast coast, Geejam Hotel, the newest Island Outpost property, started life as a recording studio for the likes of Björk, No Doubt and Gwen Stefani, and Gorillaz. Music is still in its blood. Three musically named cabins—Ska, Mento, and Rocksteady—come with unique touches like steam rooms and verandas with Jacuzzis; there’s also a fabulous suite and a three-bedroom villa. It may be tempting not to leave the premises: The seven units, with Philippe Starck furniture and cutting-edge amenities like Apple iTVs, provide the ultimate in organic elegance. Geejam draws all manner of celebrities: Sharon Stone celebrated her 50th birthday here; Grace Jones raved about her stay. Recording packages are available for guests, so you too can book time on the mike in the state-of-the-art music studio. The Bushbar restaurant, framed by a pair of ancient fi g trees, is known for its unusual Jamaican-Japanese fusion dishes. In the surrounding area—Jamaica’s most pristine—you can visit Port Antonio, once home to Ian Fleming and a prime tourist spot. It’s now a laid-back hub with a hopping central market and a charming boardwalk. Also nearby are some of the island’s best beaches and the Rio Grande, known for its fantastic rafting.
