The Caves is a truly unique hotel built into the limestone cliffs in the western tourist destination of Negril. A delightful sanctuary right on the ocean’s edge, where twelve rooms and suites provide the accommodation while private in-cave dining and a decadent spa provide the inevitable romance. Located close to a 7 mile stretch of white sandy beach, and with the blues of the sea and the sky stretching far and away into the distance.
Negril has long been known for its off-the-beaten-track appeal, and it still maintains this charm today, despite an increase in popularity over the years. Some of the best water and land activities on the island can be found nearby. While it is close to the local centre, it feels a bit like a castled perched high above the town.
The seafront portion of the 10-acre site is designed to be an array of caves and caverns, thrown up from the sea due to ancient volcanic activity. Exploring these is a veritable delight and you will find dozens of fossilized sea creatures if you look close enough.
The resort also has two dining areas set in rustic gazebos, a full bar deep inside two of the larger caverns, a Jacuzzi, saltwater swimming pool, sauna and a fully-serviced spa. An early morning tradition is to dive into the ocean from the cliff edge, where you can then rock gently on rafts floating in the nearby waters. The Caves is an experience unto itself, and one that is sure to last long in the memory after you have returned home.
The dozen accommodations built on the side of the cliff include one- and two-bedroom cottages and suites, as well as a luxurious three-bedroom villa. All nestled in the immaculately landscaped grounds and combining subtle and stylish interiors with beautiful exteriors.
One-Bedroom Cottages – Thatched roofs, queen size beds and outdoor showers along with a generous feature set and sleep up to 2 adults.
Two-Bedroom Cottages – With either two king size or a king and a queen size beds, these rooms have outdoor showers and sleep up to 4 adults.
Three-Bedroom Villa – The Clandestino features air-conditioning, a private pool, WiFi and satellite TV as well as the option of a separate annex for additional guests. There are 5 bathrooms and the option of rollaway beds so the villa sleeps up to 10.
Restaurants & Bars
Characterised by wholesome home cooking, with a variety of local favourites blending fresh ingredients. Jerk chicken barbecues or grand 5-course dinners. You can dine in a gazebo overlooking the ocean, a private table on the cliff’s edge under starlight, or even tucked away in your own cave with candlelight all around and fresh bougainvillea petals for a real romantic gesture.
The Blackwell Rum Bar sits in two of the larger limestone caverns and is perfect for enjoying drinks before or after dinner. The lounge is lit by candles and opens out onto the blue ocean, with furniture carved from stone and local rocks. Open Wednesdays to Saturdays 6pm – 11pm weather permitting.
Trips to Montego Bay
The Caves Spa is open daily and offers a range of treatments. You can even opt for a Caves Massage, where candlelight and the sound of the ocean echoing through the cavern treatment room soothes your senses as deft hands work out the stresses from your body.
