Forres Park is a small intimate 10 bedroom nature retreat and spa snuggled in the grand ridge of the Blue Mountains in Jamaica. It is built on a 60 acre working coffee farm that offers the best Jamaica Shade grown Blue Mountain coffee.
The Swiss chalet style house and cabins have spacious patios where you can take in the breath taking views of the Blue and John Crow mountains which will encourage you to feel at one with nature. Golden rays of sunlight glistening through the hills greet you with each dawn as you wake up to the loving embrace of Mother Nature rejuvenating mind, body and spirit.
At Forres Park, you can choose to be adventurous or to simply relax in your surroundings. The choice is yours.
The still, quiet serene ambiance is broken only by birds singing. Birdwatchers can enjoy locating the 28 endemic and many of the 200 other Caribbean residents and migrant species. For more adventurous guests, a variety of activities with varying levels of adventure can be arranged by your hosts. The most popular activities at Forres Park are the Coffee Farm tour, Birdwatching and the famous hike to Blue Mountain Peak.
The Blue and John Crow Mountains were listed as world heritage sites in July 2015 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation’s (UNESCO). This prestigious accolade is one more reason to visit the remarkable Blue Mountains.
Forres Park strives to be eco friendly using very few pesticides and cultivating plants that attract and feed birds. A re-foresting program has been established to support the area due to the damage caused by the mountain fires earlier this year. Trees are being planted to encourage and feed birds as well as to produce lumber. Forres Park is a large rainwater catchment area for water preservation which is used for fish, to water plants on the farm and also for use in the hotel. This eco-friendly environment encourages birdlife, which is why the majority of Jamaica’s endemic birds can be found at Forres Park.
