A nature route around the grounds brings you through a bit of rainforest and rolling meadows to a terrace with views of an island and a bay, perfect for sunset cocktails. Quiet neighbouring roads are great for steep walks beneath a tree cover, or you can seek adventure with neighbouring ecotours. Guests appreciate the resort’s peaceful setting.

Several endemic bird species are on the property for bird lovers, and they are incredibly close to the terrace and the pool. There are 28 indigenous bird species in Jamaica. Twenty-two can be located just at the goblin hill villas, and their different morning sounds are varied and startling. The Jamaican Birdwatching Society has developed a list of birds spotted at Goblin Hill, which is available at the Reception desk. The most enthralling of all is our very own Doctor Bird, or Swallow Tail Hummingbird, Jamaica’s National Bird. It is one of 320 hummingbird species located alone on the island.
You don’t have to go far to see numerous hummingbird species hovering at their feeders, most notably the magnificent indigenous Doctor Bird, Jamaica’s icon, with its long, twin, streamer-like, iridescent tail feathers.
They also organise tours conducted by official JCDT rangers (Jamaican Conservation and Development Trust, in charge of the National parks) to some of the most famous bird-watching areas on the island and nearby for birders.
