THE EX­PE­RI­ENCE

The Star (Jamaica) - - Feature The Weekend Star - SADE GARD­NER STAR Writer

Imag­ine watch­ing the sun­set while ly­ing in a ham­mock from an up­stairs cabin, or wak­ing up to your own pri­vate beach cove with pure white sand. Well, you can stop day­dream­ing and ac­tu­ally ex­pe­ri­ence this and so much more at Straw­berry Fields To­gether in St Mary.

THE WEEK­END STAR kicked off the new year by head­ing down to the ecofriendly get­away, which spreads across 18 acres of land in Robins Bay.

Prop­erty man­ager Kim Chase gave us the first tour of the newly added Pi­rates Den, which rests in front of the seafront. Like the other 12 rooms at Straw­berry Fields To­gether, Pi­rates Den is uniquely de­signed us­ing nat­u­ral el­e­ments from the en­vi­ron­ment to trans­port guests to a new at­mos­phere where ev­ery­thing feels like a dream. Care­ful at­ten­tion to de­tail could be seen from in the shower cur­tain rods made of bam­boo, the ship-wheel bath­room mir­rors, the bath­room sink, and the night­stand ta­bles, which are made from rum bar­rels.

An­other cabin, Love Nest, in­vites na­ture in­side and al­lows you to ‘hot tub un­der the stars’ and lie in bed while watch­ing the sun­rise. The other cab­ins and vil­las
