Geejam, is an über luxury insider escape with a difference. We'll let the words of Grace Jones describe the rest - “I came, I saw, you conquered me!”
Being creative constantly is difficult (obviously we're always suffering from creative-itis). We tend to find a bit of down-time helps get the juices back (as well as being the perfect excuse for a week off). The only problem with time-out is that the minute the plane hits foreign soil, our creative juices tend to overflow and we're left for the remainder of the holiday desperately clinging on to our inspiration. Inevitably as soon as the plane touches down on home soil - the juices stop flowing. It maybe that we should stay at home - turn hardcore in the fashion of photographer David Bailey who once said, "I don't go on holiday myself" - but sadly we're simply not of his stamina.
So GeeJam may just be our new best find - an insider escape, on the pristine shores of north-east Jamaica from Chris Blackwell, Island Records founder and owner of other Jamaican hotspots Jakes and Strawberry Hill.
Geejam was originally founded by music producer Jon Baker as a recording hideaway that played host to No Doubt, Common, India. Arie, Björk and Gorillaz, among others. He's now joined forces with fellow music industry veteran Steve Beaver to metamorphosize Geejam into an insider escape - what they hope will be a place that develops into a unique, creative retreat for like-minded world citizens - and a guestbook with a common creative thread.
The property is a mix of self-contained deluxe cabins, suites and villas, Geejam’s sleek design is fused with a rootsy tropical attitude, unsurpassed digital amenities and contemporary feel redefine the traditional Caribbean accommodation. Apple iTV comes as standard, as does the lush jungle atmosphere.
