Exclusive experience at Trident Hotel

A sensuous vision of contemporary luxury.

Another trick borrowed from back in the day: combining the seclusion of an intimate island hideaway with nightlife worth leaving the room for. There are several bars and restaurants well worth a few hours’ lingering, but the best of them all is Mike’s Supper Club, a speakeasy-style lounge inspired by the era of Calypso Bop and the Harlem Renaissance. Its centerpiece: a Ferrari-red 1917 Steinway baby grand piano. Arrive on the right night and one of the world’s top vocalists might be draped over the thing; and famous or not, the jazz musicians that gather around it nightly are always outstanding.

We’d be remiss not to mention that the hotelier behind the Trident is Jamaican music mogul Jon Baker, and as long as we’re talking about the speakeasy, that the person behind those outstanding cocktails came from the vaunted Angel’s Share bar, a New York cocktail-geek magnet. Still, the figures behind the curtain never let their vanity intrude on the experience. And that’s perhaps their greatest accomplishment — making the whole glamorous thing feel easy, like it’s just the way it’s always been.

How to get there:

The main international airport is Norman Manley in Kingston. Guests can connect to a fifteen-minute private flight via plane over the Blue Mountains to a local airstrip, known as Ken Jones. Trident is approximately 20 mins. drive from Ken Jones. Alternatively, a private helicopter can also be chartered directly to and from the airport, and for those who are a little squeamish with small planes, Trident is currently a two-hour drive from Kingston.
