About

Katamah is a small boutique resort in the heart of the Treasure Beach, a country town best known for its unspoiled beaches, laid-back locals and warm friendly vibe. Located at the edge of town, Katamah is secluded in a grove of flowering plants and fruit trees. Come live in our quite little fishing village and get to know the local fisherman, craftsmen and farmers by name. This paradise on the beach is the perfect retreat for a restful vacation. Go fishing with the locals, kayaking, hiking, or Simply unwind in our seafront open air lounge and watch the sun set into the ocean. Stay in one of our three Moroccan style guest rooms: an elegant room in our Villa, in a breezy oceanside cabin, or one of our king suites. Wake up on in paradise in any of our unique accommodations... all classically furnished, with HOT water, provided FANS and wifi.

Loved this place!!!

Everything about this place is great! From the airport pick up to the beautiful rooms & gorgeous yard- falling asleep to the sound of waves & waking up to the sounds of birds this !! Have the driver stop on the way and pick up snacks & coffee (he'll ask) there is a common kitchen on the Ocean that's just lovely, there's wifi, you can mingle with the other guests Or just lay in one the hammocks by the Sea. Also the boat trip to the Pelican Bar a must. ¿¿


Katamah is fantastic.

If, like me, you want to get away from the depths of winter and relax at a low-population-density beach house in the tropics, then I highly recommend Katamah. It is without doubt the best location in Frenchman's Bay. For details, see http://holtstrom.com/michael/blog/post/383/Jamaica.html
