HOT DEALS AND NEW HOTELS
Hexagonal thatched-roof buildings, volcanic Jamaican coastline, and sparkling turquoise waters give the Rockhouse Hotel a look and feel that's straight out of a Robinson Crusoe fantasy. The truth is not far off: the resort designers sought to mimic the seamless merging of man and nature so beautifully exemplified by African village life. Together, the hotel's bar and restaurant constitute the central square of the Rockhouse "village," perched on a gorgeous deck suspended above the Pristine Cove. Alternatively, guests can integrate locally in the restaurant and rum bar Pushcart, which features nightly live reggae music and a menu inspired by the best of Jamaican and Caribbean street food. A stunning infinity pool set in a clifftop rock garden perfects the back-to-nature atmosphere, while ubiquitous references to the Caribbean Sea and surrounding Jamaican countryside complete the picture of an island getaway. But the true highlights are the generous timber bungalows overlooking either glowing Caribbean waters or the hotel's expansive, lush tropical gardens. Rockhouse also offers a number of studios, whose custom-made furniture of local wood adds to the overall in-tune-with-nature ambience. Throughout the property, ladders and stairs carved into the rock provide easy access to the water, while a new temple-like spa pavilion – complete with massage cabana, Caribbean drench hut, and yoga pavilion – rounds out this laid-back haven of relaxation.
