Why Stay At The SPA Retreat Boutique Hotel
Petite boutique resort on Negril's famous West End cliffs boasting a comprehensive catalog of wellness treatments.
The SPA Retreat's 18 rustic-luxe stone-and-thatch cottages overlook the magnificent Caribbean seas and lush gardens. All have private patios and are appointed with handcrafted mahogany and rich Jamaican cedar furniture. Modern amenities include air conditioning, complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access, personal cell phones on loan and refrigerators, while the serene vibe of the resort is enhanced by the general absence of televisions and in-room telephones. Days are spent in peaceful routine: Unwind by the saltwater pool, indulge in natural spa treatments in one of the al fresco cabanas fronting the ocean or partake in open-air Yoga and Pilates classes on the covered deck that is surrounded by a lily pond. The doting staff wait on guests hand and foot, and attentively serve light, regionally harvested fare like jerk chicken skewers and pasta with callaloo, ackee and sweet peppers at the resident Blue Mahoe restaurant. Après dinner, pick up a few Patois phrases at the on-site bar while sipping a potent Planter's Punch.
Head down the ladders hugging the bluffs for snorkeling in the turquoise coral-dotted waters and hidden coves just below the resort.
The Retreat's varied spa menu uses local ingredients. Try a soothing aloe and cucumber body wrap or an invigorating Jamaican Java scrub.
Arrive at Sangster International Airport (NEG), which is approximately 50 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 80 minutes of travel time.One Love Drive, West End Cliffs, Negril, Westmorland, Jamaica

Why We Love Negril
This seductive corner of Jamaica is well known for its laid-back easy-paced lifestyle, the ivory sands of 7-mile beach and daredevil divers who, silhouetted against the setting sun, launch off 50-foot cliffs into the green seas.
Hylton Ave. past the lighthouse, Negril.
Where to Drink: Pick a Monday, Thursday or Saturday night for a tipple at hopping Bourbon Beach Bar. Move to the stirring reggae beats around the flickering bonfire or sit back at the tables and chairs set up right on the white sand. Drinks for two $10.
Norman Manley Blvd., Negril.
Where to Shop: Browse the outdoor market at Rutland Point Center on the northern edge of town. Aside from the ubiquitous Jamaican straw hats and various woven goods you can find gems of craftsmanship like hand-carved wooden statues.
Norman Manley Blvd., Negril.
Outdoor Excursion: Cruise down Black River on the island's south coast and take a dip at gorgeous YS Falls with Jamaica Tours Ltd. Guides fill you in about native plants and wildlife. To cap off the trip in Jamaican fashion, the excursion has its final stop at Appleton Rum Factory for a rum tasting. All-day tour (includes hotel pick-up and drop-off) $103 per person.
