Rockhouse Hotel Villas Water in Negril

Architecture Cornerstone Design Ltd Jamaica

Topped with thatched roofs and constructed from local timber and cut stone, the bungalows...

are the centerpiece of this island getaway on the sunset-rich tip of Jamaica. Architect Jean-Henri Morin aimed for the same seamless transition between the forces of nature and man’s existence, beautifully exemplified in the design of the hotel. The bar and restaurant are the meeting point of Morin’s “African village” and offer an exquisite dining area on a deck suspended above the Pristine Cove.

Interior design Atelier One

At Rockhouse, references to the sea and nature abound, including the boat-shaped terraces on the edge of the cliff.

In addition to the cozy bungalows and generously sized villas, the hotel also features studios. All have a distinctly Caribbean island interior style, with breezy linen curtains and nostalgic yet highly functional overhead ceiling fans. The simple lines and nautical forms of the custom-made furniture, constructed of local wood, are further evidence of a design in tune with nature.
