    Strawberry Hill began as an 18th century coffee plantation that was originally deeded by the British Royal Family to Horace Walpole in the United Kingdom; the property was named after Walpole's English estate, which was a famous meeting point for the preeminent artists and socialites of the time.
    After changing hands throughout the 20th century, the property was acquired in 1972 by Chris Blackwell, founder of the much-reputed Island Records label, which launched the legendary career of Reggae icon Bob Marley.
    Since that time, Strawberry Hill has continued the tradition of acting as a destination point for famous musicians, entertainers, Reggae artists, the fashion elite and discerning travelers. Our blend of authentic Caribbean culture and cosmopolitan sophistication, with a continuous emphasis on well-being, makes us a uniquely desirable home away from home.

    "Tucked high in the Blue Mountains with drop-dead views of the far-off Caribbean and Kingston, Strawberry Hill is a luxurious oasis of tranquillity that’s light-years removed from raucous coastal Jamaica.
    Shrouded in morning mist and thick tropical forest, the 13 Georgian-style cottages evoke British colonial days. Décor runs heavy on antiques and 19th-century period reproductions, including mahogany four-poster beds draped in gauzy fabric, and some rooms have balconies that hang off the mountainside.
    But this brainchild of Jamaican record impresario Chris Blackwell (whose family has owned the property, a former fruit plantation, for decades) isn’t all peace and mountaintop serenity: the rooms are equipped with cutting-edge sound systems and CD libraries.

    Conde Nast Traveller (US)
    "The hotel is an hour's drive up the Blue Mountains from Kingston's Norman Manley Airport. Although you are some distance from the sea - Hellshire, Kingston's favourite beach, is a 75-minute drive away – 'Strawberry' now has a mountain stream-cool swimming pool and a new Aveda Concept Spa. Thanks to James Palmer, once a chef on Adnan Khashoggi's yacht, the 'New Jamaican' cuisine has also become one of the island's attractions: try the plantain-encrusted snapper."
