To start planning your vacation to Geejam Jamaica
Geejam is an ‘über trendy’ escape located in San San, close to Port Antonio. Nestled in the heart of the jungle, this property achieves a stylish equilibrium between ultra modern technology and the natural landscape. Located on six acres of lush San San Estate, the property extends from the foothills of the John Crow and Blue Mountain chains to the Caribbean waterfront, thereby connecting a palatte of greens to vibrant hues of blue and turquoise. Geejam beach is located at the foot of the property. You'll discover a natural cove that fits into the shoreline of the Caribbean sea. Clear water, white sand and an uninterrupted horizon combine to create the ultimate mind-body escape. Here you can swim, snorkel, kayak, paddle board or simply relax on one of the four poster beds.
There are seven double rooms, consisting of three deluxe one-bedroom villas, one suite, and a self-contained three-bedroom villa, strategically positioned so as to preserve all the trees and shrubbery around them in an eco-friendly fashion. Their rustic, forest-blending exteriors combine well with the modern contemporary interiors and digital amenities. You will also find a state-of-the-art recording studio, spa, gym and the Bushbar, serving a mix of Jamaican and Japanese dishes.
Geejam sits amongst several stunning beaches including the infamous Frenchman’s Cove, voted by Condé Nast as one of the world’s top five beaches, and the equally enchanting Blue Lagoon. A ten-minute drive west will find you in the historic town of Port Antonio home to the Errol Flynn marina; it boasts a thriving hub of local culture, with a varied nightlife, including Ska bars, Reggae sound-systems and nightclubs. Also within easy reach are excursions to the cascading Scatter, Reich and Somerset waterfalls and a day’s rafting on the Rio Grande is a must.
Geejam is a 2-hour 30-minute transfer from Kingston Airport and a 3-hour 30-minute transfer from Montego Bay.
Geejam Jamaica features three One-Bedroom Villas, one Suite and one Three-Bedroom Villa. Rooms are equipped with a compact digital surround sound system with Apple TV and some of the bathrooms feature showers with in-built steam rooms.
Sprawling vistas, cloistered tropical niches, breathtaking beachfront and forest hideaways make Geejam a singular high-end resort experience. The sea air, the sun and the balmy Caribbean breeze emote a twenty-four-seven atmosphere of organic elegance, capturing that mystical spirit of the natural high, while preserving a shabby chic vibe.
A well-proportioned mix of upscale interiors matched with the intrinsic beauty of the natural environment enlivens the senses. The treated wood decks, palm tree-lined stone paths and groves of avocado, breadfruit, sour sop, cashew nut, plum apple and star fruit trees combine to create a Caribbean Garden of Eden in the womb of a tropical paradise. The centerpiece, which also serves as the foundational structure of the Bushbar, is composed of two three hundred year-old fig trees whose majestic sweep add a sublime scale to the already awesome indigenous landscape.
Sanwood, the original villa, was designed by renowned British architect Anthony Wade in the late 1960s and is distinguished by a contemporary nautical theme. Included with the three guest rooms (SW1-3), are two upper deck verandas, outdoor swimming pool, and media lounge, all of which provide a stylish, next-level living environment.
The main room, doubling as a media lounge, and featuring an audio/visual library and a private photographic and pop art collection from the likes of Geejam aficionados Banksy and Juergen Teller amongst others, is a place to work, play or recharge in the company of like-minded globalistas.
Highlighted by its lush rain forest surrounds, Mento is the ultimate nest for luxurious escape. This deluxe cabin also features an indoor bathroom with a steam room leading onto a patio, complete with a Jacuzzi and hammock for morning and evening relaxation.
Located in a private niche, Mento fuses all the intimacy of a secluded hideaway. The cabin's high ceilings and white linens lend an atmosphere of elegant minimalism, complimented by a sweeping panoramic overlook of forest and sea from the extended veranda.
Ska boasts a deliciously situated Jacuzzi on one of its two verandas, which overlooks the forest and the ocean beyond. In addition, glass doors that can be opened for a spectacular interior-to-exterior experience enclose its spacious interior.
Perched on the side of the hill, Ska's location gives way to a singular view of the undulating ocean and the sprawling Jamaican horizon.
Rocksteady is just a stone's throw from both the Spa & Gym, and overlooks Geejam's own Mack Bay waterfront. The balcony is the perfect spot for morning breakfast or an evening aperitif before dinner.
Rocksteady also has a double steam room, which is ideal for really sinking into your skin.
|Drum and Bass||
A signature suite, housed on the ground floor of the recording studio, Drum & Bass is something of a music head's most far-flung fantasy. Brazilian cherry wood foldout panels turn the room into a virtual outdoor veranda. A Jacuzzi, mesh sun chairs and wicker chaise lounges compliment the connecting full-scale deck. Almost a room in itself, the oversized bathroom is furnished with a Philippe Starck bathtub.
Foldout windows give way to a heart-stopping oceanic panorama. You can literally soak in the tub to the sound of the waves.
