The charm of Negril itself is described as an “off-the-beaten-path traveler’s utopia,” according to the website, and this one-of-a-kind resort is indeed no exception.
Sitting on two acres of seafront land near Negril’s renowned 7 mile beach in Jamaica, the native foliage and lush surroundings only enhance the oceanfront specter that is the resort’s year-round view.
The limestone cliffs on which the scenic resort sits could not be a more ideal perch from which to plunge into the deep, which is a tradition to do in the early mornings.
Jumping from the cliffs before taking a dip in the salt water pool, or just floating in the waves of the Atlantic are the idyllic ways to spend your time at The Caves.
Did we mention private cave dining is also available? If that’s not your thing, seaside dining is also an option.
The facility also includes two main dining gazebos for romantic candlelit dinners, and the Blackwell Rum bar satisfies everything you hoped was implied in your Jamaican destination.
The cliffside jaccuzis are the perfect spot to listen to the ocean and gaze onto the edgeless horizon. The architecture of the resort almost guarantees you will be in the sun, for that perfect even tan.
The onsite Aveda Amenity Spa has a dramatic seaside view of the Atlantic. It’s the perfect way to lose yourself in a tranquil atmosphere free from the hustle of your average tourist trap.
The Caves is far from that, offering only 12 highly exclusive accommodations. Both one and two bedroom cottages are open, and the deluxe villa is the largest onsite with four bedrooms and 3500 sqft.
The bright, colorful, wooden thatch-roof abodes are so picturesque that the New York Times boasts they “could have been designed by Matisse.”
TripAdvisor ranks The Caves as the number 2 resort in Negril, Jamaica and it has received a Certificate of Excellence.
Rates vary based on time of year, and have risen since the resort has bolstered its popularity. However, multiple reports reach the consensus that the average cost is very close to $700 a night.
