Cubicle Dreamin': Wastin' Away in Jamaica
Cubicle Dreamin' is a feature in which we ask the hotel mavens to take some time out of their busy work day, surf the Internet, and tell us what hotel they wish they could beam themselves to right that very second--all on the slave driving companies dime, of course. Oh, like these people aren't surfing aimlessly anyway--at least now their purposeless clicking will be cobbled together into useful hotel stories--we hope. Have a destination hotel you are just dying to leave your cube for? Send the story our way.
In this episode, Hotel Maven NatalieWW visits Jamaica...in her mind. Enjoy.
While half the country is in the icy grip of a pre-White Christmas winter storm, I am sitting in my windowless cubicle dreaming of Jamaica. Specifically, the Rockhouse Hotel on the western most tip of Negril.
Nestled along the rocky cliffs of a pristine cove, the Rockhouse Hotel is the kind of mythical tropical oasis that lulls sensible folks into leave everything behind for. If transported for only a weekend, I would get a cliff-edge massage, visit the award-winning restaurant in my bare feet, and listen to the surf crash while I scanned the horizon for dolphins.
From the thatched roof octagonal rock villa to the live reggae music playing on the patio, to what most people say are the best sunsets in Jamaica, this could be the perfect cure for the winter blues. And at rates from $95 to $395, the Rockhouse is a dream that could realistically become a reality.
