Zimbali Mountain Retreats

Set on seven and a half acres of organic, rolling, lush farm land in the hills just 25 minutes outside of Negril, Zimbali Mountain Retreat is a real farming community and guests really get to interact with nature and the locals as they discover the real side of Jamaica. There are over 800 fruit trees of many varieties and they grow a lot of their own food on site. The ambiance is an elusive mix of fun with real culture and complete comfort.

Positioned in Westmoreland Parish, west-southwest of Grange Hill, Zimbali Mountain Retreats is a great choice for tourists who are interested in basing their vacation in this part of Jamaica. The center of Negril is to the west.
