Jo & Mark are just back from a trip to Jamaica, here Jo tells us all about their amazing experience and why they go back time after time.
Nestled high within the mountains of Jamaica lies Strawberry Hill, a unique and incredibly beautiful resort with views combining palm and pine trees, making it quite surreal. On being shown to our room we were greeted with a magnificent space of colonial styles featuring a balcony – perfect for that first morning coffee or evening tipple!

Chantelle tells us about her visit to Jamaica in her fantastic Jamaica trip diary…
After a 9 hour flight with British Airways we touched down at Kingston Norman Manley International Airport, the sun was setting and the temperature a wonderful 30 degrees. We continued through customs and immigrations – I highly recommend the fast track service which costs just $30 and includes a meet and greet service off the place – to the arrival hall which was very modern and looked newly refurbished. After a short wait we were met by our friendly driver Ernest who took us to Strawberry Hill, one of the fantastic Island Outpost collection of properties founded by Island Records founder Chris Blackwell, perched 3,000ft above sea level and a 45 minute drive through the Mountain View Neighbourhood.

The hotels are well known for each having their own distinct and interesting character, and a real sense of authenticity… a true feel of luxury and opulence but in a completely unpretentious, almost casual way!
