Geejam (US$595/705 low season, US$2,035/2,125 high season) is a recording artists’ paradise where the likes of Les Nubians, No Doubt, India Arie, Amy Winehouse, and Tom Cruise have chosen to take their working vacations. Sitting on a low hill overlooking San San Bay, the property consists of the main house with three bedrooms, three cabins dispersed across the property, and a one-bedroom suite below the recording studio. Inside the huts, more than the basic amenities are covered: TV, Apple home theater systems with DVD, iPod docks, and minibar are included. Wi-Fi covers the entire property. More importantly, the mattresses are comfortable, linens soft and clean, and there’s hot water in the showers. Two cabins and the suite have steam rooms as well. The main house, more of a bona-fide villa, is decorated with contemporary Jamaican art and has a stylish pool out front. The recording studio is located at the lower reaches of the property, a deck with whirlpool tub crowning its roof. The studio has all the latest gear and oversized windows overlooking the water. While the property is specifically designed as the ideal recording retreat for a band-sized group locking down the entire property (US$5,795/6,500 daily low/high season), it is also ideal for couples or other kinds of retreats. The property is located a 10-minute walk from San San Beach, with the Blue Lagoon also a stone’s throw away. Rates include a full staff.
