Welcome to Iya-Ites, a beautiful place to be when you visit Jamaica.
We are located in the parish of Portland - set high in the hills of Port Antonio, on the southeast coast of the island.
For fifteen years we have planted every available flower, palm and fruit tree, with no other concept than shape and color..
You will find an Italian fountain shaded by a breadfruit tree.
There are tables and benches to hide out, rest or read: in the pimento grove, under the coconut trees or the banana leaves or next to the small fish pond with papyrus and water lilies under the outstretching almond tree.
The other half we left untouched: bamboo and tropical rain-forest.
Three hundred steps lead you to your own private waterfall and river-Jacuzzi away from any sound of civilization, surrounded only by nature and hummingbirds.
You can rest at the river gazebo and after ascending from this hidden paradise swim again in the pool.
For no-sun-seekers: half of the pool area is covered giving you shade.
Portland has long been a private getaway for visitors from all walks of life.
Whoever travels to this side of Jamaica, will inevitably find their way back.
Something is here that is difficult to put in words.
You have to come to experience it, Natural Vibrations, Energy, Peace, Beauty, Nature, Love, As Bob Marley said "who feels it - knows it".
Come and relax in the mountains, with an unbelievable view of the Caribbean Sea and Port Antonio below, and get to know Jamaica in a way you never thought possible. We look forward to welcoming you.
