Cheap & Chic
Aquamarine waters, white cliffs, Blue Mountain iced coffee : the essence of irie (Rastafarian for total peace of being) at the Rockhouse in the always relaxed Jamaica. Unlike the frenetic lights-on energy of Vegas, the 24/7 availability of New York, the debauchery of Jamaica is the guilty pleasure of doing nothing and then feeling not guilty at all for doing it.
Thanks to you guys, I discovered the hotel via Twitter-surfing (special thanks to the Bergdorf account) and then via its hordes of accolades (a favorite of Travel and Leisure, GQ, Brides) for a four-day long-needed girls trip back in May. Jamaica is mostly known for the ease of all-inclusive packages like Sandals, but the extremely attentive staff, four-star accommodations, and stone’s throw ocean access make it just as facile and a favorite of people like Nanette Lepore and John Slattery, who visit every year.
