tranquil, tropical property with a total makeover, and is offering guests a $100 savings off rates. Whimsical stilt houses are scattered throughout the ten-acre tropical garden, bordering the Negril Royal Palm Preserve. Sixty-five “tree house-style” rooms once featured in “Architectural Digest”—are tucked among the flowers and towering trees, steps away from the azure sea. The
resort faces a pristine crescent beach, long ago dubbed “Bloody Bay” by the true Pirates of the Caribbean.
White drapes flutter over French doors in the airy guestrooms. Chic, Asian-inspired furnishings include gauzy linens, deep wood furniture and natural fibers. The sleek, modern bathrooms feature splendid slate tiles, chrome fixtures and glass-enclosed showers with four body jets and two showerheads. Daybeds on the balconies make you feel one with nature. Natural fabrics and furnishings add to the breezy island vibe.
Special rates, effective for travel through December 23, 2005 are $250 per room, per night in a Deluxe Treetop Room and $350 per room, per night for a One-Bedroom Suite. Single rates are $150 and $200 respectively. This is a $100 savings off regular rates. Rates include

Birds sometimes swoop through the open-air lobby, now spiced by a hardwood and slate floor, and new furniture. The swim-up Bamboo Bar has been extended and enhanced, as has the Palm Grove Restaurant, an open-air dining pavilion serving first-rate, buffet-style cuisine.
In the evenings, guests can gather before dinner at the sweeping, new Martini bar carved from Caribbean purple heart wood and soak in the sounds of the soothing live piano music from the resort’s resident baby grand. Bartenders serve the resort’s signature Appleton Rum martini
garnished with a slice of Jamaican pineapple.
