This family-run pocket of splendor in upper St Andrew offers an intimate experience combined with a panoramic view of Kingston. The five rooms, named after Jamaica’s different parishes, feature delightful antique furnishings. The genial hosts treat guests like family. There’s a typical Jamaican breakfast (ackee and saltfish, callaloo, dumplings, and fresh fruit).
