Ital Rest is founded on the Rasta ideology of Ital, or natural, organic living. We work on a small-scale using a community-based, holistic approach, and employ sustainable, low-impact methods with the environment in mind.

Our two cottages are set within lush gardens, two minute’s walk from a secluded swimming cove, on the beautiful, wild coast of Treasure Beach, Southern Jamaica. With the dramatic backdrop of the Santa Cruz mountains, and two nearby lagoons which form habitat for over sixty species of bird (including ospreys, ibis, hummingbirds and large flocks of pelicans), the cottages are surrounded by outstanding natural beauty.

Peaceful, friendly and affordable, Ital Rest is the perfect place to escape from the bustle of the world, and chill with gentle, heartical new friends.
