It majestically recreates the days long gone by, bringing back to life the slow, uninterrupted pace of life, crystal clear air only shrouded by the morning mist, and the endless staccato or local birdlife, which is as relaxing as it enchantingly hypnotizing.

Strawberry Hill Location
Strawberry Hill is a stunning mountain side retreat that has been home to some of the biggest names in music and entertainment business. Having over the years housed the likes of Rolling Stones and Mr. Bob Marley himself, who came here in search of much needed privacy and a reprieve from the prying eyes of the outside world.
Set 3,000 feet above Jamaica’s capital, Kingston Strawberry Hill offers plenty of space, privacy, fresh mountain air and some of the best facilities available on the island, including an Aveda spa.
Deservedly listed as one of the “1,000 Places to See Before You Die” by New York Times, it offers seclusion and a welcome break from the outside world.
No, there is no overcrowded public nearby; no dusty, noisy streets to roam around; no noisy crowds and vendors. But what it lacks in noise and bustle, it more than makes up for with stunning mountain hiking trails nearby and lush tropical gardens. And if you are really feeling like an adventure, we can arrange a day trip to one of the island’s best hidden beaches or a private art gallery and a museum tour, truly making it a holiday for those in the know.
