Perfect for romance or reflection, your days here – punctuated by slow dawning sunrises and dramatic sunsets, award-winning dining, and an iconic infinity pool – will be unforgettable.
As part of your stay, visit the local primary school and showcase your knowledge and interests to students there. They welcome visitors. Great hikes with a local guide are available on the abundant mountain trails.
Overnight Strawberry Hill
Days 4-6: GoldenEye
Transfer to GoldenEye, a premier luxury boutique resort on the coast. Goldeneye presents as a laid back but luxurious village. Enjoy barefoot elegance and top-tier accommodations during your beachfront stay here. Snorkeling, kayaking, sunbathing, and swimming are all on tap, and an over-water spa is conveniently located on the property. For a special gathering, rent the villa once owned by Ian Fleming – the creator of James Bond!
Enjoy all the activities on offer at the resort, including your private villa’s outdoor shower and hammock, so conducive to your R & R. We can also arrange the opportunity to visit the nearby primary school to tutor young children with their reading. Any book donations would be much appreciated!
For those interested in conservation, visit the fish sanctuary, which has made replenishing the waters with fish a local reality. There is also a sea turtle sanctuary which can be visited seasonally.
Day 7: Pantrepant Farm
Today you will be driven to Pantrepant Farm for a very special overnight.
Pantrepant is a working farm nestled on the banks of a gentle river. This lush, tranquil property, owned by Chris Blackwell (of Island Records fame), dates to the 1700s when it was carved from rolling hills and forests into a thriving sugar plantation.
Pantrepant is a home, a working cattle farm and exquisite escape. The atmosphere is at once private, luxurious and laid back. Ride into the fields on horseback, explore an ancient cave, swim amid old sugar cane ruins, observe cattle herding, hike or just relax in an oversized hammock.
The excellent cuisine is home grown from the abundant organic garden you will be able to visit. You’ll enjoy a fine farm to table feast under the huge tree on the lawn.
Day 8: Departure
Today, sadly is departure day. You may feel that you have been gone for a month, not just a week because of all the beauty and varied landscapes you have absorbed.
You will be driven to Montego Airport for your international departure.
