Jamaica is a tropical paradise. However, you will often find that major resorts and hotels are modelled in such a way that doesn’t highlight, the true essence of Jamaica. But fortunately, there are a few places that do, and Bay View Eco Resort and Spa is one of them.


New! For Authentic Jamaican products, from my very own handsvisit my Etsy store here.


As the name suggests, Bay View Eco Resort is one of the very few eco-friendly resorts in Jamaica. It is a small resort, but the size only adds to its charm.

Bay View Eco Resort resembles what many of us only ever see on our television screens, a tropical getaway, nestled in between tall trees and bushes, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of city life. No matter where you are from, Bay View Eco Resort will be an escape from your day to day life.

Accommodations at the Bay View Eco Resort

The Bay View Resort and Spa is on the smaller side compared to other resorts, so you won’t have many options when it comes to accommodations. There are 30 rooms overall in five different houses. They are:

  • Main House
  • Bamboo House
  • Ackee House 
  • Mango House
  • Palm House

These houses have single, double and triple occupancy rooms and a few suites as well. These rooms are not the typical luxury suites you would find at most resorts, they were designed with simplicity and comfort in mind. Some of the basic amenities found in these rooms are:

  • Wi-Fi
  • Cable TV
  • Room service
  • Private balcony
  • Air conditioning

Dining at The Bay View Eco Resort and Spa

This is not an all-inclusive resort so meals are not included, however, they do offer complimentary Jamaican style breakfast each morning. Another great thing about this resort is that majority of the food prepared here uses ingredients that are grown on the property.

So each morning, you can expect a delicious farm-fresh breakfast such as the Jamaican national dish of ackee and saltfish served with boiled bananas and fried dumplings. 

The Spa

A vacation in a place like this would not be complete without treating yourself to a spa date. The spa at Bay View Eco-Resort and Spa is a tranquil place. You can choose any of their services or treatments, or even have a consultation and have something specifically done for you. You are bound to leave feeling revitalized. Here are some of their treatment options:

  • Bamboo breeze facial & Swedish Massage
  • Butterfly Facial
  • Classic pedicure fused with Paraffin wax
  • Chocolate body scrub
