Jake’s Hotel, Villas & Spa | Jamaica’s best kept (yoga) secret!


Off the beaten path of Jamaica’s tourist routes lies Tresure Beach, one of the most epic spots in the Caribbean for a Yoga Retreat, a tropical advenure, or to just kick back and chill. Good news for yogis - Jake’s Hotel, our favorite Jamaican location, has just announced an amazing yoga retreat program for teachers, studios, and students of all levels. When we caught wind of this we knew that we had to share it with all of you, check it out!

Nestled in the quiet fishing community of Treasure Beach located on the off-the-beaten-track South Coast of Jamaica, Jakes is the perfect oasis for yoga and wellness retreats.

The relaxed beauty of the natural island landscape is accented by one-of-a-kind, vividly designed cottages by artist Sally Henzell that exude a charisma and character that time and again makes it a choice destination for travelers from around the globe. The winding beachfront property features a mosaic-tiled sea-water pool, a sunken beach and Dougie’s Bar, which is renowned as much for its breathtaking sunset view as it is for its potent signature rum punch!

The property also includes two restaurants, Jakes Country Kitchen and Jack Sprat which serve delicious, locally-prepared seafood and pizza, right on the beach, and the Driftwood Spa, a full-service spa overlooking the Caribbean, whose menu is influenced by Jamaica’s indigenous healing traditions and whose products are crafted from locally-sourced materials.

The property offers several intimate niches for yoga, sunbathing, reflecting or socializing with other like-minded retreaters. The colorful units, comfortable lounging decks and fantastic oceanfront views make Jakes feel like a cloistered haven in the midst of an offbeat nirvana. Most of the Moroccan-inspired adobe rooms and cottages feature decks over the sea or over the roof, as well as outdoor showers and baths.

At Jakes, we understand that your experience as a retreat leader is equally as important as your participants’ experience. We encourage our guests to treat Jakes as a second home, and our staff as a second family. From your point-of-arrival, we invite you to settle into a lush island rhythm, where sun-drenched days, star-filled nights and the ongoing soundtrack of the ocean naturally renew and re-energize all aspects of your well-being. Our basic retreat package ensures that you and your group have a perfectly prepared, hassle-free, and authentic experience of our unique blend of Jamaican hospitality and Zen sensibility.
