DAI Inside Scoop: The Caves Hotel in Negril, Jamaica is an organic interpretation of romance. Designed by Greer-Ann and Bertram Saulter, each of its 10 handcrafted cottages is planted in a garden on the edge of the sea. It’s the perfect choice for guests who value spirituality, privacy, romance and verdant beauty.

It’s a very sensual place. Its two seafront acres hide many secrets—sundecks and nooks, even grottos in the cliff itself. One of these grottos is designed for dining—lit with candles and strewn with flowers. The Aveda Mini-Spa looks out on deep blue water. The high-ceilinged cottages are made of wood and stone and roofed in thatch. The Caves is the perfect choice for a romantic getaway or a personal retreat.

Hotel Information


The Caves
Lighthouse Road
West End, Negril, Jamaica


Distance from hotel to Sangster International Airport (MBJ), 90 minutes.

The Caves rests on the westernmost tip of Jamaica in Negril.
All though only a few miles away from the bustling Negril strip,
the private enclave of The Caves is a world apart. Ten hand-
crafted wood and stone thatch-roofed cottages are interwoven
between two acres of lush vegetation and cavernous caves, each
with sea views. The Caves is perched above Negril's natural
volcanic formed caves overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

The walls of the cliffs feature a series of grottos with
ancient fossilized marine life for guests to explore. Below
the caves, the water plunges down to depths of 30 feet and a
tropical reef system comes right up to the edge of the caves,
perfect for snorkeling. An arrangement of coral stairs and
walkways leads to sun-decks and grottos, and guests can climb
down ladders into the sea for swimming.

The Caves is best described as an exclusive villa resort; it
is intimate and very private and offers a unique experience.
Vacationing here is a lot like staying at an exotic vacation
home of good friends, and the property is physically structured
and operated as such. It is a place to escape and relax.
