The rooms throughout the property are flawless in contemporary design and are equipped with state of the art technology, spa-quality steam rooms and showers. Each guest room has hardwood floors, custom-made blackout blinds and beds with five hundred-count cotton sheets. The streamline patio furnishings, hidden speakers and low-lit walkways add to the ambiance of the resort in its complete attention to detail.

Geejam has a state of the art recording studio, healing spa, swimming pool and a gym. At the cultural centre of the resort is the Bushbar Restaurant, built on two three hundred year old fig trees, and now serving a blend of Jamaican and Asian dishes combining West Indian spices with Asian influenced recipes.
Geejam Beach is at the foot of the property where guests can swim, snorkel, paddle board, kayak or relax on a four poster beach bed. Only a ten minute drive from the resort lies the historic town of Port Antonio and home to the Errol Flynn Marina with its thriving local culture and nightlife.
