Jakes Hotel, Villas and Spa – The Rooms

Jakes Hotel, Villas and Spa – The Rooms

It is easy see why people fall in love with Jakes Hotel, where the vibes are easy-going and there is a room to suit your every need. During our three night stay we fell for the charms of the ‘Caribbean Boho-Chic’ south coast resort and I would definitely go back given the chance.

After reviewing the Coral – Garden View Room in the previous post, we can testify that the Jakes experience really is all that and more. But with so much to look at, one post about our experience of staying at Jakes would never be enough to document all that this special resort has to offer.  There is a whole portfolio of properties at Jakes, where you are sure to find a quirky, laid back cool place to rest your head…

 

The Accommodation at Jakes Hotel, Villas and Spa

This post in the mini-series takes you on a whirlwind tour of some of the other accommodation available on and off the main Jakes property. So if you are looking for something a bit more uptempo than what we reviewed with the basic garden view room – keep reading, because Jakes has a property to suit all types of occasions and situations.

 

 

Map of Jakes Hotel

 

The main Jakes property is nestled along a strip of the rocky honeycomb coastline, with a panoramic view of the turquoise sea and the reassuring Santa Cruz mountains in the background. Accommodation at Jakes is made up of a collection of brightly coloured and uniquely designed cottages, bungalows and villas each with their own unique sense of style designed with love and flair by Sally Henzell.

Although there are over 30 places to stay, it wasn’t always that way. Sally took her time, cherry picking locations on the site and constructing them over a period of years, not months. The whole resort has been thoughtfully designed around the mature trees, which are under planted with lush green tropical foliage, such as banana palms, ferns and cactus, softening the hard landscaping. The pathways leading you through the property are winding and whimsical, offering glimpses of the sea and the jewel coloured cottages and villas that are half hidden and studded through the tropical gardens.

Jakes Hotel Rooms

Although classed as ‘Hotel Rooms’ by Jakes, don’t be fooled into thinking you will be crammed together in a mega complex. The Jakes version of a hotel room is a small, free-standing building with a beautifully quirky design. Each of the rooms is unique, but all boast a Caribbean boho-chic boudoir, an en suite bathroom, plus inside and outside private space. None of the buildings are more than one storey high and they are all plotted among the tropical garden or overlooking the turquoise sea. Take your pick from regular or deluxe garden and ocean view rooms.

All Jakes Hotel Rooms are supplied with: A/C, Wi-Fi, mini fridge, coffee maker, Bluetooth speaker, digital safe, rainfall showerhead (we also had a hairdryer).

 

Deluxe Ocean View Rooms

Abalone One and Up, Cockles Up and Down, and Hammerhead One, Two and Three. (Hammerhead Two and Three, if booked together, include an adjoining kitchen.)
