Kanopi House (US$600-1000 all-inclusive) is the latest addition to Port Antonio’s high-end market. Four self-contained wooden cottages stand on stilts along the jungle-covered slope rising from the eastern bank of the Blue Lagoon. For a Medicine Man rush or even a spoiled-Tarzan kind of feel, there’s no place like Kanopi, and it’s the only accommodation option that actually sits on the lagoon. The most tasteful and simple decor adorns the cottages’ exposed wood interiors. The cottages are naturally cool in the shade of the forest, with ceiling fans rather than air-conditioning, and do not have TV. The bathrooms are well laid out, and each cottage has a wide veranda with an outdoor grill. Elaine Williams Galimore is the friendly housekeeper and cook. Kanopi’s entrance branches off the driveway to Dragon Bay. When the project is complete, Kanopi is slated to have 14 one- and two-bedroom cottages with king-size beds.
