|The Trident Hotel|
The Geejam Collection is hoping to further establish Port Antonio, Jamaica as the new hot spot in the Caribbean with the debut of the Geejam Villa Collection and the much-anticipated re-opening of the Blue Lagoon Restaurant.
Geejam Collection is restoring villas that exist in the historic San San Estate originally built in the late 1950’s heyday of Port Antonio. The first wave of jet setting elite including the Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan, Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza, Garfield Weston and Lady Price, all fell in love with the region building their vacation homes there.
The mission is to bring the nearby town of San San back to its original glory by introducing the new Geejam Villa Collection and re-launch the Blue Lagoon Restaurant, encouraging travel and investment to the region by further expanding its existing portfolio of properties including Geejam Hotel & Recording Studio, the 13-villa Trident Hotel and the eight-room Trident Castle.
Here's a closer look at the completed Villas:
This six-bedroom villa is open for enquiries for the upcoming 2014-2015 high season. The property sits roughly 650 feet above sea level with views over Portland’s coastline featuring a teak deck, lap pool, heated plunge pool, Jatoba wood flooring throughout, en-suite bathrooms, as well as a private gym and steam room. Amenities include SUV chauffer service and airport transfers.
Set on the grounds of the Geejam Hotel, this three-bedroom property has views over Geejam beach and features its own private pool, indoor/outdoor living areas and optional services including a chef, personal butler, housekeeping, a spa therapist or a personal trainer.
