Owned by music industry veterans Jon Baker and Steve Beaver, the luxe The Geejam Collection in Jamaica has attracted everyone from Beyonce to Gwen Stefani. Now, they have another reason to draw A-list guests — the new six-bedroom, three-level villa Cocosan, the newest addition to its private villa development.
Taking advantage of the impressive landscape in the historic San San Estate, Cocosan sits in a dramatic hilltop location and offers sweeping views across lush tropical jungle, the John Crow and Blue Mountain chains and Portland’s stunning coastline, located on the Northeast coast of Jamaica.
San San Estate is an an area originally developed during the 1960s heyday of Port Antonio when the jet-setting elite including Errol Flynn, Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan, Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza, Garfield Weston and Lady Price, fell in love with the region. They recognized that the 1000-acre San San Estate was, as famous resident Errol Flynn put it, “more beautiful than any woman [he’d] ever seen.”
The partial new construction features six bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Large high ceiling rooms, some with balconies, display contemporary, collectable artwork and photography that is curated according to each incoming guest’s taste from Baker’s personal collection. Custom vinyl turntables and mixing consoles add to the character of the villa in keeping with Geejam’s musical roots and returning guests.
A spacious outdoor terrace, heated lap pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, gym and children’s play area boast panoramic vistas of the coast, ideal for luxury living and entertaining. Guests get the celebrity treatment; Cocosan is booked with full wait staff, housekeeping and in-house chefs who prepare meals in one of the two state-of-the-art kitchens using produce from the on-property organic herb and vegetable garden.
Guests will also be able to enjoy the full services and amenities of the Geejam Collection properties, Geejam Hotel & Recording Studio, the 13-villa Trident Hotel and the 8-room Trident Castle.
Cocosan rates start at a relatively reasonable $2,750 per night in low season.
