Great Huts, Port Antonio, Jamaica (March, 2015)

Doh! I did not take a single picture while I was there.
But the Great Huts official site has plenty.

While You Are There: It’s another go-away-and-then-have-a-staycation post! The Great Huts offers everything you need in the hotel itself, but there are some nice attractions nearby such as the Blue Lagoon (yes, that Blue Lagoon, not the one in Iceland I mentioned previously), rafting on the Rio Grande, Winnifred Beach, and all the jerk chicken/conch/etc for sale at the end of the road.

Why It’s On My List: It’s nice to have a little isolation for a few days when you are travelling somewhere like Jamaica. I’m not a fan of all-inclusive resorts and separating yourself from the locals, but it does get tiresome when every time you go to the beach you are accosted by people selling you trinkets, hair braiding, marijuana, and sex. A day or two in a place like this is necessary. A private beach and meals onsite is a welcome break. And this place is not a massive resort like the ones in Montego Bay. It’s a boutique resort with delightful amenities and comfortable rooms. If I were the kind to have a destination wedding (or, let’s be honest, a wedding at all), I’d seriously consider renting this whole place out.

For this year’s A-Z Blog Challenge, I’ve decided to showcase 26 of my favorite places in the world. I’ve only been to 22 of the 196 countries, so I’ve got some more travelling to do, but these places are well worth a visit.
