Strawberry Hill, the 26–acre mountain–top retreat, is located in the heart of Jamaica’s Blue Mountains in Irish Town, 3,000 feet above the Caribbean Sea. Listed in The New York Times #1 bestselling book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, Strawberry Hill features awe–inspiring views of the mountains in one direction and the twinkling city of Kingston in the other. The property features twelve 19th century Georgian–style cottages, an infinity–edge pool, The Spa at Strawberry Hill, expansive botanical gardens, and world–class dining.
Poised on the steep slopes of the Blue Mountains, Strawberry Hill of Island Outpost rejoices in a rather special eco-system. Its unusual setting is balanced between Kingston’s Liguanea Plain and the mountaintop’s rare broad-leaf woodlands. The warm northeast trade winds rise when they meet the Blue Mountains. Clouds are formed directly over the peaks and provide the rain that creates the mountains’ famous blue hue and its distinctive microclimate: tropical Jamaican heat in the daytime and a welcome breeze at night. This singular contrast encourages biodiversity and enables growth of an extraordinary variety of plants and foliage in the celebrated gardens. One of Strawberry Hill’s simplest and yet greatest pleasures is watching the perpetually shifting cloud formations wreath the mountaintops as they drift across from the far side of the island.
