Rockhouse Hotel Design in Negril, Jamaica
Hexagonal thatched-roof buildings, volcanic Jamaican coastline, and sparkling turquoise waters give the Rockhouse Hotel a look and feel that’s straight out of a Robinson Crusoe fantasy. The truth is not far off: the resort designers sought to mimic the seamless merging of man and nature so beautifully exemplified by African village life.
Guests can integrate locally in the restaurant and rum bar Pushcart, which features live reggae music and a menu inspired by the best of Jamaican street food. A stunning infinity pool set in a cliff-top rock garden perfects the back-to-nature atmosphere, while ubiquitous references to the Caribbean Sea and surrounding Jamaican countryside complete the picture of an island getaway.
Throughout the property, ladders and stairs carved into the rock provide easy access to the water, while a new temple-like spa pavilion – complete with massage cabana, Caribbean drench hut, and yoga pavilion – rounds out this laid-back haven of relaxation.SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW
The Rockhouse borrows full-heartedly from its surroundings in the design concept, with clear references made to the sea and abundant nature – including the boat-shaped terraces on the edge of the cliff. In addition to the cozy bungalows and generously sized villas, the hotel also features studios.
All have a distinctly Caribbean island interior style, with breezy linen curtains and nostalgic yet highly functional overhead ceiling fans. The simple lines and nautical forms of the custom-made furniture constructed of local wood are further evidence of Morin’s design in tune with nature.SHOP NOW
