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.

Set on the western edge of Westmoreland Parish, west-southwest of Grange Hill, Zimbali Mountain Retreats offers a warm welcome to visitors who want to stay in this area 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.

Zimbali Mountain Retreats has a total of just 4 units, so we classify it as a very small property. Hence, it's a good choice for visitors who enjoy a relatively intimate setting. This eco resort has received a 3 star rating, for its activity and quality ratings, and more.
