Khus Khus Negril Hotel Review

Khus Khus Negril Hotel
When I first heard of Khus Khus Negril, I started to think about poppy seeds used in foods and the old time fragrance that grandma had, none of which I could figure how it linked to Negril - lol
And as I dug a little more I found this Hotel at the address of PO. Box 3148, West End Road Negril.
I laughed to myself as I flipped through the images of the hotel. I then went on to doing some research on the amenities, rooms, offers and cost. Thinking of how unfamiliar I am with this place I decided to share what I have found.
Formally known as Falcon cottage this hotel stood for many years in the same spot; heading in the direction of the Negril Lighthouse Inn, another famous cottage in Negril.
Unlike most hotels that has a large ongoing land scape and a predictable layout; Khus Khus had a more natural laid back ambiance complimented by the golden ray of the sun that Negril is known for.
It didn’t have a wide range of amenities but it had the necessities such as:
Most of which are found in Cottages like Le Mirage and Lighthouse Inn today. There are many other cottages and hotels along the West End Road offering similar amenities dressed up with their own flavor to match the personality of their owners.
And though may seem small on the outside, they are very commodious in setting. Some owners go as far as to categorize their rooms using catchy phrases like:
I. One love a queen
II. Cease and settle
III. Satisfy my sole
IV. Garden peace suits
In comparison to some of the other long standing, freshly renovated hotels and small cottages the rooms may also have a balcony that will overlook a pool, a garden or courtyard area and in each room you can find a mini fridge/mini bar, free Wi-Fi connection, among other basic things. Additionally they offer its guest services like:
In room massage service
24hours check in service
Cost is absolutely no issue in this area. From what I’ve gathered the rooms are within budget, tax included and quoted in USD.
Jagged cliffs, crushing waves, warm breeze, beautiful beaches Khus Khus falls smack dab in between this picturesque setting and the sensory nirvana which is what adds to its innate charm and kept visitors coming back.
You don’t have to take my word. This hotel still remains partially renovated and its billboard sign still stands along the road side. Do your research and who knows we may even meet up there sometime in the future should it be reopened.
