The Caves – Vacationeeze

The Caves

The Caves


Distance from hotel to Sangster International Airport (MBJ), 90 minutes.

The Caves rests on the westernmost tip of Jamaica in Negril. All though only a few miles away from the bustling Negril strip, the private enclave of The Caves is a world apart. Ten hand- crafted wood and stone thatch-roofed cottages are interwoven between two acres of lush vegetation and cavernous caves, each with sea views. The Caves is perched above Negril’s natural volcanic formed caves overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

The walls of the cliffs feature a series of grottos with ancient fossilized marine life for guests to explore. Below the caves, the water plunges down to depths of 30 feet and a tropical reef system comes right up to the edge of the caves, perfect for snorkeling. An arrangement of coral stairs and walkways leads to sun-decks and grottos, and guests can climb down ladders into the sea for swimming.

The Caves is best described as an exclusive villa resort; it is intimate and very private and offers a unique experience. Vacationing here is a lot like staying at an exotic vacation home of good friends, and the property is physically structured and operated as such. It is a place to escape and relax.
