Activity 2: Devon House
Duration: 2.5 Hours
One of Kingston's highly visited historical landmarks, The Devon House Mansion, is the architectural dream of Jamaica’s first black millionaire George Stiebel. Stiebel was among three wealthy Jamaicans who constructed elaborate homes during the late 19th century at the corner of Trafalgar Road and Hope Road, which fittingly became known as the Millionaires Corner.
However, the other homes were eventually demolished to make way for modern development ventures. Stiebel’s legacy lives on with the beautifully maintained Devon House, which was declared a national monument in 1990 by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust.
Many would be surprised to learn however that the early history of Devon House dates back to the mid-seventeenth century when Britain captured Jamaica from Spain.
There is a sweet surprise for all guest at the end of the tour of the Mansion.
Before moving on to your next location, enjoy a delicious lunch at Norma's on the Terrace.
Activity 3: Port Royal
Duration: 4 hours
Port Royal - At the end of the Palisadoes. Port Royal was once the busiest city of the Caribbean. During the time of the Buccaneers, Port Royal was a bustling center for trading legitimate and ill-gotten wealth. Disaster has befallen the city many times though and it has been repeatedly ravaged by hurricanes and earthquakes. The largest of these earthquakes occurred in 1692, sending 90% of the city underwater. Port Royal is now a sleepy fishing town containing crumbling run-down remnants of its former glory. Port Royal is a great place to come to relax and enjoy the laid back atmosphere of a town enjoying "the simple life". Whilst being geographically close to Kingston it bears little similarity with the capital.
Attractions of Port Royal include many critically acclaimed fish restaurants and Fort Charles which hosts a museum and the Giddy House.
After your activities, you have the choice of enjoying a delectable dinner at Port Royal from your choice of restaurants or return to your hotel and have dinner at the restaurant located at the hotel that provides an excellent selection of local and international cuisines.
Taste all the richness of our island’s multi-cultural heritage in Strawberry Hill Restaurant’s succulent New Jamaican cuisine. Sip a sublime tropical fruit cocktail on a welcoming wraparound veranda, a taste as uplifting as the stunning mountain views. Or let the gracious “Old Plantation” ambience of the Dining Room enhance your repast as you dally over a slice of warm bread pudding with a dash of Blackwell’s Rum, accompanied by a cup of Blue Mountain coffee, grown not a mile away. A true Jamaican breakfast is a joy, with legacy fares such as ackee and saltfish, and a special spin on eggs Florentines made with callaloo and bammy, a crisp cassava flatbread. You’ll discover that a champagne mimosa always sparkles harder when it’s made with freshly squeezed oranges.
After breakfast, take in the beautiful surroundings with a bit of sightseeing while breathing in the crisp, and refreshing Blue Mountain air.
Enjoy a scenic drive back to your hotel after which you will check out at the appointed time.
