It’s time to face the music: we’re smitten with the laidback Jamaican vibe at Geejam. Owned by music producers – and a favourite hideaway for chart-toppers – the hotel has just the right blend of rainforest rusticity and beachy relaxation.

Setting Rainbow-coloured rainforest
Why this week? Don’t say we don’t treat you well. Geejam is offering Smith members four nights for the price of three from now through mid-December. Book Smith’s exclusive offer, and you’ll receive daily breakfast, a Jamaican cooking class, a picnic lunch on a private beach, and even some time in the recording studio.
Our favourite bits… This sun-kissed series of coconut-coloured cabins – replete with its own recording studio – is beloved of No Doubt, Santigold, the Marleys and Alicia Keys. There’s a rainbow-casting waterfall, a slew of secluded hammocks and a laidback restaurant, the hip Bushbar, serving up fragrant Jamaican-Asian curries and rum cocktails.
Mr & Mrs Smith say… ‘All of the rooms reference typically Jamaican genres of music and ours is Ska. Located at the very southwest of the property, Ska is actually a two-level wooden cabin that features a Jacuzzi; a furnished terrace; an iPod dock with epic soundsystem… and an absolutely outrageous 180-degree view of the surrounding hills, beaches and sea from practically anywhere you care to sit or lay. We are verily outraged by the view… The combination of hugely bright, high-definition greenery set against this limpid water really makes everything – including these two Smiths – look so charged with life.’ Read Lucien Etori’s full Geejam review here.
