Description

Trident Jamaica is the perfect place to unwind and relax. It has a picturesque location, just outside Port Antonio offering marvelous ocean views from all the villas and most of the communal areas. The hotel is very modern and every detail has been specifically designed to ooze comfort, luxury and elegance but also simplicity. The building itself has been refurbished so there still remain many original features which make it unique. With only 13 villas, there is a lovely intimate feel to the hotel and the staff is very personable.

The Trident oceanfront villas are modern with their fresh colors and splashes of 50s and 60s artwork. They are homely with separate bedroom, bathroom and living areas giving you lots of space to relax, not to mention the private terrace and plunge pool. The unique furnishings and airy colors create a harmonious environment to stay in.

There are two dining options at Trident. The Veranda, which overlooks the infinity pool, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner either outside or inside with a relaxed atmosphere. Mike’s Supper Club is livelier with its speakeasy environment complete with a live band. The Timebar is the place to head for a cocktail or two or your favorite aperitif.

The facilities at The Trident include a private beach with inviting clear waters and a beach bar, an infinity pool with fabulous ocean views, a spa which blends holistic techniques and philosophies from around the world to leave you feeling soothed, a state-of-the-art-gym and a children’s play area. If you find that you want to leave the hotel’s grounds, the concierge service will happily advise you on nearby watersports, cultural excursions and other activities to suit your tastes.

The restaurant overlooks the infinity pool and out towards the ocean providing an enjoyable backdrop whilst you tuck into some delicious dishes.

Mike’s Supper Club has a livelier atmosphere as it has taken on a cabaret atmosphere to capture the essence of the Calypso Bop era. This means some low lighting, a live band playing jazz, bop and world music and a menu inspired by Japanese-Jamaican cuisine.

The Timebar is a great place to head to before dinner for an aperitif – you could sample a cocktail or opt for your favorite tipple accompanied by a nibble or two.

The Explorer’s Lounge is a glamorised communal living area. With original displays of 50s and 60s artwork, comfortable sofas, unique artifacts and a library it is an ideal snug to relax in or indeed hold a private party or dinner.

The Trident Spa is run by highly qualified therapists who use a range of treatments to suit your needs. The main focus is on holistic treatments inspired by global philosophies merged with Caribbean techniques. The spa itself is very sophisticated in style, and you feel an immediate escapism as soon as you step into your robe and slippers.

Activities

The pool is also an inviting setting with its fabulous ocean views and comfortable sun beds. There is an on-site gym near to the spa if you fancy an invigorating work out. The spa is the perfect place to head to indulge in a bit of pampering and relax the body and mind.

Further afield, there are several places to explore. Head to the Frenchman’s cove to splash about in the water, embark on some river rafting or go and check out the local waterfalls. Head to the local towns to sample some of the famous jerk chicken and other colorful dishes. The hotel staff will happily advise you on which activities and events are current during your stay.

Location & Directions

Portland, Jamaica

The Trident Jamaica is located in the Portland area of the island just outside of Port Antonio and overlooked by the Blue Mountains.

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.
