Blue Hole Gardens Victorian Cottage (starting at US$220/night) sits perched on a hill at the top of 94 steps ascending from a rustic bar that belies the understated luxury of the accommodations above. Overlooking canefields and the magical Blue Hole Gardens, the cottage has two bedrooms on the upper level, each with a full bath -- an antique bathtub in one, an outdoor shower in the other, and two adjoining bedrooms below that share a full bath between them.
Savanna La Mar and Vicinity
Along the route from Negril to Savanna-la-Mar, the hills open up a few kilometers east from the beach to vast alluvial plains along Cabarita River that sustain Jamaica's largest sugarcane crop, processed at Frome. Small communities like Negril Spot and Little London dot the route and offer little excuse to stop. A turn off the main road in Little London leads to Little Bay, one of Jamaica's most laid-back beach towns, which is predominantly the keep of small-scale fishermen.
