Jakes is located on the south coast of the island, far from the hustling bustle of the north coast, in a sea level, rain-shielded valley surrounded by mountains. So anywhere you go from Jakes is up. Bike through pristine, patchwork farmland, hike to views that will dumbfound you, workout with TRX slung from the yoga deck’s rafters and go through circuits at the Sports Park. It’s all here. Come workout hard and relax right. Come get fit and let go.
ONE LOVE : ROOMS
Once upon a time, the late writer and director of Jamaica’s first major motion picture, The Harder They Come, Perry Henzell, told his epically creative wife Sally that she would build things. True dat.
In the past 20+ years Sally’s designed every indelible inch of the Jake’s property. Each room comes to her in a dream, each wildly unique, of the earth and undulating with fearless color. Welcome to a fantastical, magical realist feast of eclectic structures, beside the Caribbean Sea’s most lovely and lashing waves.
This is your personal cinema vérité. Find the abode that most rouses your soul.
HOME AWAY: COTTAGES
Our cottages are homes away from home. One, two, three and four bedroom abodes offer earthy luxury and Sally Henzell’s signature eclecticism. Think sprawling, one-of-a-kind beds, antique furniture, ceiling fans and louvered windows shaded by bamboo blinds. Peek-a-boo glass bottles are notched liberally into the walls and shell fretwork abounds.
Come rest yuh head and relax into the seascape, all together now.
BIG DIGS: VILLAS
Laidback luxury. Exquisite eclectic. All have stupendous sea views, access to private beaches and amenities galore.
