Rockhouse is an award-winning boutique hotel perched over Pristine Cove on Negril’s west end. A long-cherished destination for stylish travelers, Rockhouse has an impeccable 25-year commitment to regenerative travel. While prioritizing our guests, and nurturing the spirit of our amazing team, the Rockhouse undertakes environment best practice (Green Globe Certified) while putting back into the community through the Rockhouse Foundation.
Nestled amongst eight acres of lush tropical gardens, and perched high atop the cliffs of Negril’s West End, the Rockhouse property is comprised of forty rooms with all the comforts of a boutique hotel. Each of the rooms are built from timber, stone and thatch and designed to exist in harmony with the jungle-like garden and volcanic rock of the breathtaking natural landscape. Rejuvenation is inevitable.
A morning swim in the Caribbean sea really works up the appetite: allow us to nourish you one of the most talked about restaurant on island. The Rockhouse Restaurant offers new Caribbean cuisine – a lighter, modern interpretation of Jamaica’s classic dishes incorporating local ingredients and some picked from our very own garden.
Your biggest decision for the day will be choosing between dining on the deck at the Rockhouse Restaurant or ordering room service and enjoying your privacy.
Our spa has one mission: to help you unwind by any means necessary. How does a massage in a cabana overlooking the Caribbean sea sound? How about a Blue Mountain coffee scrub in our tropical gardens? There’s a reason we’re a two time winner of the World Travel Award for Best Spa in Jamaica.
Grab a snorkel and swim through the clearest water on island. Grab a pair of sneakers and head to explore a local waterfall, mineral bath or canopy zip line. Or grab your spf and lie out by the pool. Whatever you’re style, we’ve got you covered.
You will never forget tying the knot with the backdrop of the perfect Negril sunset with your loved ones. Our team only does 20 weddings a year to make sure our planner can get every detail perfect. Now all you have to do is say: I do.
