The Sanctuary is perfect for a romantic getaway or a tropical honeymoon in Jamaica. This elegant room offers an extremely comfortable king sized bed, a cozy seating area, a large walk-in closet and a recently upgraded modern bathroom with walk-in shower.

The peace & tranquility that seeps into your pores when you vacation at our small luxury hotel, is particularly evident in The Sanctuary. Our guests often tell us how they sleep like a baby in this room.

The space
The Blue House Luxury Boutique Bed & Breakfast is a small oasis of calm on the outskirts of a sea of massive all-inclusives. The pioneer & forerunner in luxury B&B's in Jamaica, we constantly strive to provide a cool, casual, upscale, REAL Jamaican eco-conscious experience while embracing wellness, sustainability and social initiatives.

Gardeners and nature lovers are sure to fall in love with the hundreds and hundreds of exotic orchids meandering throughout our lush gardens, as well as, the constant harmony of birdsong and the endemic hummingbirds flitting around our feeders.

Come, enjoy our full complimentary breakfast and treat yourself to a true Jamaican foodie experience curated by our one and only "Barefoot Chef", Darryl Yap.

Made with fresh and organic ingredients full of local and international flavors, our three-course family-style dinners will not be listed in a pre-set menu. We customize our menus daily especially with your preferred tastes in mind.

Before your arrival, we will ask you about allergies, meal preferences, likes, dislikes, dietary restrictions, your willingness to explore local cuisine, etc. Our meals are then pre-planned based on the information provided by all our in-house guests.

From there on in, prepare yourself to be surprised and tantalized by our Barefoot Chef's skill in the kitchen. See details below.

Guest access
Breakfasts and dinners are generally served family style on the upstairs balcony overlooking the lush view of the mountains surrounding Ocho Rios and the harbour downtown.

The common lounge area leading to the balcony, as well as, the pool deck, are central hubs to meet, greet and hang out with other guests during the day or for a pre-dinner drink.

Be sure to seek out the tour brochures on our Tour Desk and mini library with it's eclectic collection of reading material. Please feel free to donate books and magazines to the library rather than hauling them back home with you.

The kitchen is out of bounds at this Bed & Breakfast but the coffee/tea station is equipped with kettle, coffee machine, microwave, guest fridge, teacups, mugs, plates and cutlery.

- A 20% surcharge will be added to ALL rates for applicable taxes and property service charge, as well as, a surcharge of $1 per night per room for city tax.

- B&B Rates include full breakfasts at 9 am. Earlier breakfasts will be self served and will consist of: a fresh fruit plate (MUST be pre-ordered in advance), toast, jam, jellies, peanut butter, fruit juice and tea or coffee.

-Therapists are on call for massages (swedish, deep tissue, hot stone), reflexology and body scrubs. Pre-booking is required.

Our bar offers a fairly comprehensive wine list, as well as, alcoholic beverages, juices, spritzers and sodas.
***In order to ensure dinner availability, guests MUST pre-order meals as far in advance as possible as we use only fresh ingredients in our meals and we need to properly plan and schedule our Signature No Menu Three Course Dinners, plus adequate wait and kitchen staff. We highly recommend you book at least your first two nights dinners with us so you can relax and unwind after your day of travelling. After that, a minimum 48 hour notice is required for dinners.

Location

Ocho Rios, St. Ann Parish, Jamaica

The Blue House Luxury Boutique Bed and Breakfast is only a few minutes to beautiful beaches and a short ride to a myriad of tours and excursions, shopping, restaurants, jerk spots and local food joints for lunch, yet it is worlds away from the noise and bustle of mainstream Ocho Rios tourism.

Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, the property is a birder's and nature lovers paradise, quiet and relaxing with lush, colourful, tropical blooms in abundance.

On realizing that the White River flows in our neighbours' back yards guests frequently venture out on their own accord for a refreshing swim in it's cool, clear waters.

A somewhat different "Jamaican" than you're probably used to, but a proud Jamaican non the less ! I'm second generation Chinese and sixth generation German born in Kingston Jamaica. I've lived 7 winters in Toronto, Canada and 5 milder ones in Queens and Long Island, New York. I returned home to Jamaica over 25 years ago. Wanderlust and a passion for great food is in my DNA so I've ate my way across quite a few countries across the globe. Still travelling. Still munching. I own and operate The Blue House Boutique Bed and Breakfast, Tripadvisor's #1 B&B in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. We have long been the off-the-beaten-path holiday destination for savvy travelers searching for a small, cozy Jamaica boutique hotel with a laid-back, upscale vibe and first class authentic local cuisine. Our casually chic, family run B&B has been ‘Jamaica’s Best Kept Secret’ for years and we now have a prestigious award to prove it! I love life, people and new experiences so I get a real thrill from welcoming travelers from around the world to my little corner of paradise. I love sharing the REAL Jamaica, our history, culture, politics, foods and more with our guests at our dining table, as well as, learning about their home country, culture and customs. I often tell people that I travel the world every night while seated at my dining table. Best job ever !
