Worth A Visit

Great Huts, Boston Beach, An Eco-Tourism Resort in Portland

Great Huts, Boston Beach, Jamaica

Here are some photos I took while visiting Great Huts recently. Photos contributed by my niece Sydney Wilson (age 12).

Great Huts is an eco-tourism resort in Boston Beach, Portland, perfect for your eco-tourism  vacation in Jamaica!

As described on its website, Great Huts is “built upon a 4 plus acre plateau atop the north east point of the Jamaican coast, (an) intimate vacation village of comfortably furnished dwellings, Wi-Fi communal areas, expansive cliff side views with dining areas, hammocks everywhere, lovely beach and sea pool, offer(ing) an Afro-Caribbean “roots” alternative to the traditional hotel or Villa”.

I would definitely call Great Huts rustic, but nice rustic. The place was booked solid with mainly European guests who I figure go for the “rustic chic” kind of vibe.  We didn’t stay the night so I can’t comment on the accommodations or the food really but here are some pix which will give you an idea of the layout of the place.

They have a great little infinity type pool perched on the edge of the cliffs and a quaint rocky beach which is quite unique.

The staff was friendly and there were lots of dogs! So I’d say “must love dogs” if you’re going to stay there…

    I’ve stayed there twice, it’s definitely one of my fave JA resorts. I loved the two diff rooms I stayed in, although how much natural lighting one will have depends on which hut you get.

    I enjoyed the food served at the resirt and the jerk served outside.

    Definitely rustic but if you love art and nature it’s a can’t miss experience. Plan to go back again this year :).
