Honeymoon Hotel of the Week: Strawberry Hill, Jamaica

by Kristina Fazzalaro on April 10, 2013

Views abound at this luxurious hideaway tucked into Jamaica's famous Blue Mountain.

Jamaica’s Strawberry Hill offers couples a remote hideaway in a gorgeous setting, making it a top pick for a tranquil honeymoon. This former coffee plantation, nestled among the steep and winding hills of the island’s famous Blue Mountain, is a little oasis above the city of Kingston. Owned by music-maker Chris Blackwell, whose work with the likes of Bono, Stevie Wonder, and Bob Marley has made the hotel a celeb magnet, Strawberry Hill might be the island’s most isolated property, offering plenty of intimacy and privacy, with just 12 cottages spread across more than 26 acres. But the hotel also has the features of a larger property: an expansive spa, a breezy restaurant and bar, a hilltop pool, lush gardens, and ample relaxation space — all of which feature panoramic vistas of the jungle, city, and ocean below.

If you’re loving Strawberry Hill, but are concerned about finding the cash to pay for a stay at this luxe spot, check out wanderable.com. On this awesome website, you can create a honeymoon registry that — rather than getting you the boring ol’ pots and pans — will ask wedding guests to give gifts that will help pay for hotel stays and activities during your honeymoon. So forget a floral China set you’ll never use and opt to stay an extra night, upgrade to the honeymoon suite, and enjoy another poolside cocktail with gifts from your Wanderable registry, so you can have the perfect honeymoon!

A coffee plantation dating back to 1780, Strawberry Hill is rich in history.

Fun details like this hammock provide comfortable canoodling spaces.

Villas range in size, but all are luxurious and romantic.

The views -- of the sea, rainforest, and city below -- are stunning throughout the property.

The restaurant is bright and breezy, serving Jamaican delicacies like conch fritters all day long.

Couples will enjoy a side-by-side massage in the expansive spa if they book a honeymoon package.
