Rockhouse is a boutique hotel stretching across the cliffs of Pristine Cove. Nestled amongst eight acres of tropical lush gardens, thatched roofed villas are perched on the water's edge. Guests swim in the sixty foot horizon pool or take the stairs carved into the rock down to the cove for snorkeling on the reef.
The hotel is home to two award winning restaurants - the Rockhouse Restaurant, Pushcart Restaurant & Rum Bar. The renowned Rockhouse Spa has a philosophy that is a simple, holistic approach to well-being, health and happiness. Spa treatments are undertaken "on-the-rocks" in the cliff-edge Massage Cabana or at the eight room garden spa. Yoga classes are offered daily overlooking the sea.
Consistently ranked one of the top resorts in the Caribbean, at the 2014 World Travel Awards Rockhouse won "Caribbean's Leading Boutique Hotel", was nominated for "Best Spa in The Caribbean" and won for "Best Spa in Jamaica" . Rockhouse was awarded the #1 Hotel in Jamaica and the #5 Hotel in the Caribbean in Travel + Leisure's list of the "500 World's Best Hotels" in 2014. In addition, the Rockhouse has been voted the No. 1 "Best Value Hotel in the Caribbean" in Travel + Leisure's "World's Best Value Awards" and included in Conde Naste Traveler's Readers Choice list of "Best in the World". Patricia Schults names Rockhouse as one of the "1000 Places to See Before You Die" in her New York Times Best Selling Book. Rockhouse is also honored to have been recognized as a standard bearer for responsible tourism for its work in Community Building in winning a Travel + Leisure Global Vision Award.
The hotel is located on the cliffs, two and a half miles west of Negril town on Negril's West End Road. The hotel is sited on the western most point of Jamaica – the best spot for sunsets. The closest major international airport is Montego Bay, just over an hour away.
The objective of the hotel is to responsibly and sustainably balance the interests of all the parties: giving the guests an amazing boutique hotel vacation, making our team partners in its success, taking care of the environment (Green Globe Certified), while putting back into the community through the Rockhouse Foundation which has invested over US$2 million in local public schools and libraries.
"Jamaica is one of my favorite destinations in the world and the Rockhouse is one of my absolute favorite hotels. When you go there you have this incredible, cliff top experience. This is the kind of place that you take your shoes off as soon as you walk in and never put them back on. This is definitely one of those great gems. But whether you're taking a dip in the great infinity pool or you're watching the stunning sunsets with a Red Stripe in hand–this is a place I would recommend to anyone."
"Close to Negril, Pristine Cove is quite an address to live up to, but Rockhouse Hotel fuses sensitively with the rocky landscape."
"Offering one of the best lodging deals in the Caribbean, Negril's Rockhouse presents 34 thatch-roofed units and a new spa in a terrific cliffside setting."
"Look beyond the great design, the glorious sunset view, the charming service and cleansing sea breeze... you'll see the world in a better light and you'll find one of Jamaica's most relaxed and authentic experiences."
"Relaxed and insanely chilled I finally understood why nothing is a problem... with reggae playing in the background whilst the ocean laps against the rocks below, the Rockhouse is as unpretentious as you could wish a place to be."
