Description

The Caves is a small boutique hotel set on the cliffs of Negril on a rocky point overlooking the Caribbean. The cliff walls feature a series of cleverly built sun decks and diving platforms to enjoy the cool emerald sea. You will also find some excellent snorkeling in amongst the caves.

There are 12 hand crafted, stylish cottages with funky interiors, hand-carved furniture and batik fabrics, each with a sea view. The hotel also features a fabulous fully air conditioned four-bedroom/five bathroom deluxe villa with private pool, WiFi and satellite TV.

Spicy Jamaican cuisine is served in the open-air gazebo. There are also two grottoes in the cliffs for private dining, romantically lit with hundreds of candles. The hotel also has two bars, a saltwater swimming pool and a hot tub built into its own room in the cliffs with a view out to the sea. There are also a variety of treatments available at the Aveda Mini-Spa including their signature Caves Massage, inside a cave with candles and the soothing sound of the ocean aside.

For the more active, the hotel will be happy to organize hiking through the stunning mountainous landscape, tours to go scuba diving, deep sea fishing, shopping, climbing waterfalls, and wandering through Botanic Gardens all within a 2-hour drive. Jamaica is home to over 200 species of birds and some fantastic bird watching opportunities.

When to go

Offering warm temperatures throughout the year the Caribbean is a perfect year round destination. With an average of 9 hours sunshine a day the peak season runs from December through to April which is the dry season when you can expect very little rainfall. May to November are the slightly wetter months where you will find an increase in rainfall as the summer season goes on and with that some humidity, however the Summer months are still a great time to travel as the temperatures are hot and the rain tends to come in short heavy bursts but not all day long. The wettest months with the most humidity are September and October and these are the most probable months for hurricanes to occur in the region although many islands have not experienced hurricanes for a number of years. The average daily temperatures range from the mid-seventies in the winter months and mid-eighties in the summertime.
