PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

Cushioned, carpeted and curtained with greenery, Kanopi House’s treehouses are set deep in the rainforest, flanked by 100-foot, vine-wrapped banyans. The hotel’s philosophy is equally green – all the wood is sustainable, no trees were felled when Kanopi House was built, and local craftsmen and artists contributed to the design.

Blue Lagoon, San San Fairy Hill P.O., Jamaica

SMITH EXTRA

Compliments of the House 

A bottle of wine and free breakfast for two on your first morning at Kanopi House

At the Hotel 

CHECK-OUT: Noon, and later if there’s availability. Check-in is equally laid-back (but call the hotel to let them know when you’ll arrive).
Rates include a selection of teas and coffees stocked in-room; use of kayaks and snorkelling gear; and access to the entire property, including the Blue Lagoon.

FACILITIES

Gardens and a library including DVDs. In rooms: iPod dock with Bose speakers and free bottled water.

PACKING TIPS

Laid-back linens for lounging around and different swimwear for each day of your stay – you’ll probably spend more time in water than on the ground. Don’t bring a shoe collection fit for a millipede – chances are you’ll pad around barefoot.

ECO-FRIENDLY

To ensure the safety of our staff and guests during these unprecedented times, we have made the decision to temporarily close our hotel. We apologize for any inconvenience, please check back at a later time wheen travel restrictions in the area have lifted. We look forward to hosting you in the future when the world is a much safer and happier place. We appreciate you, thank you for understanding.

POOL

No pool, but guests have direct access to the Blue Lagoon – according to legend, its bottomless and inhabited by an elusive dragon.

ALSO

US$30 a day covers the cost of feeding any pets you bring along. Smokers can light up wherever they like.
Indulge in an in-room spa treatment with one of the expert therapists.

Rooms 

Almond Tree has a gargantuan, hand-carved four-poster, retractable windows and doors that open out onto the rainforest. Spanish Elm is the largest treehouse, and has its own dining and lounge area, a spacious bedroom, an outdoor shower and a wraparound deck fit for a filmstar.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

Gather in the communal treehouse, the Living Room, for meals cooked up in the House Kitchen. Continuing the wood-and-white theme, the Living Room’s hand-crafted mahogony day-beds are dressed in white linen and scattered with cushions. Shots of colour come via the views – the open-plan space overlooks the jungle and Alligator Head. Pick a banana from one of the trees on the deck, but don’t get full – freshly caught snapper, lobster or meat cooked on the open grill, flavoured with herbs and greens plucked from the mountain garden, await. All the Jamaican staples (callaloo, plantain, ackee, breadfruit, yam, wild cocoa, sweet potato and curry) are present and correct, cooked with love by Elaine and served by Carla – entertainer, housekeeper, and all-round superstar.

Liquid Bliss 

Have pre- and post-dinner drinks at the Living Room, and set the mood by lining up playlists on the house iPod.

Experience the Extraordinary 

Frenchman’s Cove is fit for a film set, with its white sand shores, clear waters, enormous climbing trees and tarzan swings. Lunch on jerk chicken and rice, or freshly caught fish cooked for you on the beach. Long Bay, a 45-minute drive from the hotel, is a great spot for surfing –after your salty session, toast the gnarly waves with an ice-cold Red Stripe. Forget Venice – float down the Rio Grande on a bamboo raft, your boatman steering the way as you recline in the two-person settee. The four-hour trip includes a Jamaican buffet lunch, cocktails and chilled beer. If you’ve over-indulged in all things jerk, set off on a bike ride in the Blue Mountains. Along with the historic coffee plantations, there will be a wealth of butterflies, blossoms and birds to admire on your way. Kanopi House can organise all the above (and more).

Transportation 

Planes 

Norman Manley airport in Kingston, served by Caribbean Airlines (www.caribbean-airlines.com), is the nearest airport, two hours’ drive away. Alternatively, for US$1,350, four people can share a helicopter flight (with restricted baggage).

Automobiles 

Kanopi House is hidden away, with a semi-secret location. It’s easier to let the hotel’s drivers pick you up and drop you off – they will also ferry you from A to B while you’re on the island. If you want to be independent, there is plenty of parking space. Port Antonio is the nearest town, a 10-minute drive away.
