Considering Jamaica's lush natural beauty and weather as lovely as any in the world, you might wonder why anyone would change a thing about the island landscape. The folks at Zimbali Retreats have often asked the same question, but their solution is truly one of a kind: a seven-acre organic farm that runs just fine without disturbing its gorgeous environs.

Escape on this sustainable getaway to a paradise that has not been lost to development. Here, solar power supplies 100-percent of the electricity, while natural springs and rain harvesting provide the water. A heaven for eco-friendly foodies, Zimbali farms the fresh ingredients used for its delectable, all-inclusive meals.

"I have traveled the world and nothing compares to the personal touch of [Zimbali Retreats]," says a past guest on FlipKey. "Every conversation, every meal, every beverage, every hike was transformed into a powerful display of love. This was by far the best vacation ever."

You'll lodge in a comfortable suite or cottage, each offering outdoor space to keep you connected to the surrounding mountains and valley.

Choose from vegetarian, seafood, or traditional Jamaican menus prepared by a personal chef, and learn to stir things up with a Jamaican cooking class. You'll walk through the farm, picking fruits, vegetables, and other essentials, then return to the Mountain Cooking Studio for a demonstration.

Beyond delicious cuisine, this retreat gives guests a chance to tour the fertile valley where much of the food is grown, then take a dip in the clear mountain springs where Jamaica's iconic reggae Rasta once bathed in the shade of a bamboo canopy.

And during your stay, treat your body right at Serenity Spa and consult Bongo Roach—a Rastafarian elder and certified herbalist—for ancient wisdom and organic remedies. You'll leave with a belly full of food and heart full of love, because what's good for the environment is also good for the soul.

  • "The entire experience was very real—we met lots of Jamaicans, hardly any tourists, and had adventures way off the beaten path. We highly recommend Zimbali Retreats to anyone who wants a great, healthy, and real Jamaican experience."
