Green Goblin Hill
We spent the night at Goblin Hill. Now, I didn’t spot any goblins (or gremlin’s as one of their signs suggests) but the collection of luxury villas on offer here are surely a delightful retreat after a day up and down the windy roads from Kingston to Portland.
And there is something a wee bit Middlearth / Tolkein-esque about the views. During the day, this resort is a great leafy haven of lawned tranquility featuring palm-strewn views looking down onto the bay and beach. There is a refreshing, small, pool surrounded by quaint white wooden screens and garden furniture that harks back to colonial times. Beach lovers won’t be disappointed either as Frenchman’s cove and San San beach sit in the near proximity (click here for info).
During the evening the atmospheric outside bar comes to life. It is tucked neatly-into the surrounding bush, with an accompanying symphony of crickets and a chorus of croaking of frogs.
All villas are self catering, as well as offering a personal cook if required. Bring your own tea-bags and Blue Mountain Coffee for a morning brew. For a breakdown of prices visit the Goblin Hill website, by clicking here.
Kindly note: Do bring mosquito repellant.
