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 toward the western outskirts of Westmoreland Parish, west-southwest of Grange Hill, Zimbali Mountain Retreats is a great choice for visitors who are thinking about lodging in this section of Jamaica. It's east of the center of Negril.


The main villa at Zimbali is called Serenity and features two bedrooms, one bathroom, a spacious living space and dining room that runs inside and outside, cable television, and a stereo. The second space is a cottage that is studio-sized with a kitchenette, private bathroom, and veranda.

They also have two mountain suites. All rooms have queen-sized beds, balconies with mountain views, and hammocks.
