Zimbali's Culinary Retreat (from US$450 dbl, all inclusive) offers visitors a comfortable way to experience the most idyllic life imaginable as a Rasta living in the hills of Westmoreland. The boutique property operates as an all-inclusive, integrated tour operator providing all food and transport for one-, three-, four-, five- and seven-night packages. The five double occupancy suites and a larger two-bedroom cottage that sleeps four are comfortably decorated with local wood and wicker furniture. Rooms have private bathrooms, balconies, A/C, standing fans and ceiling fans and coffee maker. A highlight of the experience is the food, much of it farmed onsite, prepared in front of guests as a farm-to-table cooking demonstration as Zimbali's Mountain Cooking Studio. Though the specialty is ital (vegan) fare, the kitchen also prepares fish and chicken dishes. Drumming and dancing are part of the culinary and farm tour experience on Wednesdays and Fridays.
