Discover the Rasta within at this award-winning Negril retreat, which offers an authentic cultural experience while allowing guests to comfortably relax and indulge in world-class meals.

The Destination
As reggae music plays on a summer day, you might realize that there's a Rasta spirit in us all. This summer, take the chance to explore Jamaica and its culture while staying in complete comfort at an award-winning resort just 20 minutes from Negril. This natural oasis lets guests discover the other side of Jamaica, where mountain beauty meets world-class cuisine and eco-living takes center stage. Here, you'll experience the comfort of a natural life with colorful foods, warm sun, and plenty of time to smell the tropical flowers: Jamaica is truly a Caribbean dream, and the folks at Zimbali Retreats have taken it upon themselves to preserve that dream.

The Digs
At this award-winning retreat (FlipKey rated it a "Top Vacation Rental" and Eco Hotels of the World gave it five stars), you'll lodge in complete comfort while enjoying five-star service and first world amenities. The suites and cottage each offer outdoor space with great views of the natural surroundings, plus private baths and fresh-ground Blue Mountain Coffee. The Mountain villa features a common area with a large porch overlooking the valley, complete with hammocks for relaxing, and a large library of unique books provides a bit of entertainment during downtime. Of course, there's always music and fun at the Reggae Bar.

At Zimbali—named the Gem of Westmoreland at the 17th-annual Jamaica Food Awards—foodies unite. The gorgeous seven-acre organic farm provides fresh ingredients used in each of the delectable Jamaican fusion meals.You'll be in the front row as your personal chef takes you on a culinary journey in the specially designed Mountain Cooking Studio. Stroll through the seven-acre on-site farm, picking fruits, vegetables, and other essentials; then, return to your choice of seafood, chicken, vegetarian, and traditional Rastafarian-style Ital dishes, all creatively woven before your eyes. At Zimbali, organic food takes top priority—treats like fresh fruit juices and vinaigrettes are prepared daily.

The Diversions
This retreat gives guests a chance to hike the fertile valley, eat a wood-fired lunch on a real Rasta farm, and take a dip in the clear mountain springs where Jamaica's iconic reggae Rasta once bathed in the shade of a bamboo canopy. This summer, the retreat is also offering new activities like African yoga and meditation, as well as a unique Afro-Caribbean drum circle lesson for the ultimate cultural experience. You can swim in a river, take a Rasta tour in the hills, and eat a wood fire-prepared meal—all in an effort to immerse yourself in this Jamaican lifestyle.

The retreat also provides a full line of treatments at Serenity Spa, and an opportunity to consult Bongo Roach—a Rastafarian elder and certified herbalist. You'll leave with a belly full of food and a heart full of love, because what's good for the environment is also good for the soul.
