‘Strawberry Fields Together!’
Not a song – not a dream – an undiscovered reality.
The English word ‘unspoilt’ is translated in the Collins Dictionary under synonyms as Perfect, Untouched, Unchanged to use but a plethora of listed alternative words, and as an adjective – ‘having an unaltered character’. Enough now with the English lesson.
In simple terms words here do not suffice or indeed perform any sort of justice whatsoever to impart to you the shear majesty and beauty that Strawberry Fields Together encapsulates. Located on the North Eastern shoreline of sub-tropical Jamaica, this ecofriendly resort is an oasis of true beauty and natural wonder.
Privately owned and in the same local residents’ nurturing hands which has kept it unscathed from the excesses of ultra-commercialism, you would be correct to call this the “Jewel in The Crown” of what a traditional Jamaican resort ought to be on the last stretch of undeveloped coastline. It does not get any better than this.
The history of the resort can be traced back to the early seventies, and the resort is rightly named after the popular Beatles song ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ and if name dropping is De Rigeur among you, The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton have all set foot on these 18 acres of Jamaica’s finest coastline.
Today the resort has reached its recent 30 years of ownership by the same ‘local’ resident owner Kim Chase, (2012 regional NCB Women in Business Winner); the resort is a testimony to her belief of how to enjoy a holiday without any forced ‘tourist’ traps. The resort epitomizes the very essence of what Jamaica has to offer locals and the global tourist market.
Today Strawberry Fields Together has gently changed with the times, a genteel combination of tradition and excellent ‘local’ service which combines to offer guests (more often they become friends) a feeling of yesteryear service with unflustered delivery of home cooked Jamaican treats such as Jerk Pork, 2015 Table Talk Food Award for Miss Jen’s Fried Chicken, Curried Mutton and locally sourced Escoveitch Fish to list but a few.
A new and really pleasurable experience is Sunday’s Pizza on the Beach from an authentic wood burning pizza oven, with a range of toppings available.
The restaurant overlooks 180 degrees of Caribbean Ocean (a new restaurant and bar will be open mid-year) and provides a spectacular backdrop to any family or corporate event.
There are 2- three bedroom villas and 6 cottages to choose from, for either a ‘chilled’ weekend away or longer as the fancy takes you with names such as To di World, Lightning and Bolt, LoveNest and Sunrise Magic, Dream Maker, Moonlight Magic, Secrets and Dreams, Hibiscus, and Cockatiel.
The ocean is right at your doorstep and there are two private beaches.
‘Moonlight Magic’ is the perfect couples escape with its own whirlpool bath overlooking the ocean and handmade marble kitchen. This property is open and airy with plenty of natural sea breeze, the perfect weekend escape. ‘Dream Maker’ is altogether in another league and it is adjacent to its own private beach and completely detached, and offers one bedroom accommodation with an abundant use of local cut stone and marble.
Out of the six cottages Hibiscus can accommodate a family of six people and has its own private bath. If you have a large group, one or more cottages and villas can be booked simultaneously to cater to your needs.
During your stay at the resort all main meals are offered during the day, and the bar is open for snacks and light and alcoholic drinks for everybody.
Strawberry Fields Together can offer leisure hikes, hiking to hidden waterfalls, weddings and of course the resort is a honeymooners dream. A variety of packages are available
for Fun Days out with friends and family, and company’s large and small.
There is one thing that always sets any idyllic resort apart from the next – the staff, their attitude and demeanor. Any best laid plans can quickly dissolve without that special ingredient – THE STAFF.
