Resplendent return of Caribbean’s castle to the stars

Experience how the other half holiday at the re-opened Trident Castle Hotel in Jamaica.

The oh-so-cool Geejam Collection – recording studio to stars like Alicia Keys, Snoop and Bjork – is also a hotelier.

And, The Collection has re-opened the iconic Trident Castle, in the north western Jamaican region of Port Antonio. 

The castle is probably more a chateau to be honest, and has been a favourite villa rental among A-listers for most of its life, with past guests including Johnny Depp, Kate Moss, Robin Williams and Audrey Hepburn.

The castle is now an eight-room hotel with Romanesque pool , manicured garden, huge ballroom, a small private chapel for weddings and the A-lister necessity, a private helipad. From $288 per night.

The Trident Hotel’s 13 villas have all been completely overhauled. Every villa has its own private plunge pool and terraces, just in case the private Jamaican beach or luxurious day beds beside the infinity edge pool are not enough.

Harlem-inspired Mike’s Supper Club serves up Jamaican and Japanese cuisine. The hotel’s media room is essentially a private cinema and the bar and lounge areas are stacked with rare Cuban and Jamaican rums.

From $714 per night.
