One thing we Jamaicans, especially those of us from the countryside love to do, is to have a big river cookout, or โ€œrun a boatโ€. 

New! Take a piece of Jamaica with you๐Ÿ’ƒ!

Savour the memories!  Now you can get your authentic Jamaican souvenir items, as well as traditional Jamaican herbs, spices and housewares on our popular e-store. Click Here to learn more.

And, if you ever need a trustworthy and knowledgeable local guide, consider booking a private tour with us!

Usually, this isnโ€™t one of those things that tourists would participate in for various reasons, but mostly because it was never really available to them. However, thanks to Reggae Hill, you can get quite close to it, in a more luxurious way, since you wonโ€™t have to actually do any of the cooking.

Reggae Hill gives you โ€œJamaican River Cook-Outโ€ in an upscale way. Iโ€™m talking about lush grounds and a park that is bursting with vibrant native plants and trees. It's like Mother Nature herself decided to show off at this location that they have chosen.

As you wander the grounds, you'll find padded chairs strategically placed for the ultimate chill session โ€“ by the riverbank, under almond trees, and scattered across the soft green grass. It's like an invitation to kick back, relax, and soak in the beauty of Jamaica.

Now, let's talk about that cool flowing river of clear spring water. It's not just for show โ€“ a sweet little swimming hole is waiting for you to dip your toes in and sunbathe.

I can practically feel the tranquility seeping through the description. And, get this, a warm and friendly hostess is there to cater to your every whim. Talk about VIP treatment!

This wouldnโ€™t be anything without the food though! The chef at Reggae Hill is like a wizard, or so I heard, creating special dishes that are works of art. We're talking mahi-mahi tartare, jerk chicken spring rolls with mango chutney โ€“ the kind of stuff that dreams are made of. And for the grand finale, there's the chef's signature dessert โ€“ chocolate raisin cream fudge cake. I'm drooling just thinking about it.

But what's a good meal without the perfect drink to accompany it, right? Reggae Hill has you covered with a lineup that sounds like a tropical daydream โ€“ colourful champagne cocktails, exotic rum drinks, strawberry guava punch, watermelon lemonade, and organic juices. I can already imagine sipping on one of those, taking in the Jamaican vibes.

And here's the kicker โ€“ as you indulge in this feast for your taste buds, the sweet sounds of reggae music will be your soundtrack. I mean, could it get any better? The rhythmic beats will have you swaying and moving to the music. They even have a dynamic team ready to entertain you with line dancing and cool cocktail demonstrations by their Kool Bartenders. It's like a party that never stops!

Now, if all of this wasn't enough to put you in bliss, there's more. How about a massage bed set in abundant gardens on the river's edge? Close your eyes, imagine the soothing sound of flowing water, and let the skilled hands of a professional masseuse work their magic. It's the kind of relaxation that you didn't even know you needed.

And of course, you can't leave empty-handed. Reggae Hill has a stash of high-quality souvenirs, t-shirts, and logo products that you can take home. It's not just a visit; it's a memory you can hold onto.

With a valid resident ID (driver's license, national ID, Jamaican passport, or work permit), residents and Jamaicans can take advantage of these reduced prices. To get these rates, you must present valid identification at the door.

Three to eleven-year-olds are eligible for child rates. Youngsters under two go in free. Snacks and water are among the foods and beverages that cannot be taken onto the site.

In a nutshell, Reggae Hill is not just a place; it's an experience. It's like stumbling upon a dream that you never want to end. So, if you find yourself in Ocho Rios, St. Ann, make a beeline for Reggae Hill โ€“ your tropical paradise awaits!
