It List - The Best New Hotels: Trident

Courtesy Trident Hotel

Resort: Trident Hotel, Port Antonio, Jamaica

Make no mistake: the verdant, still-under-the-radar area of Port Antonio, on Jamaica’s northeastern coast—a former stomping ground of Hollywood legends like Elizabeth Taylor—is about to reclaim its status as a hideaway for the jet set. Case in point: the Trident Hotel, one of a series of high-profile projects from the Geejam Collection that will debut this year. Run by music producers Jon Baker and Steve Beaver, Trident has 13 white-on-white villas overlooking the ocean, along with a clutch of statement-worthy public spaces: there’s the Explorer’s Lounge, with its burnished light fixtures and 1930’s billiard table, and Mike’s Supper Club, hosting weekly jazz performances on a 1917 Ferrari-red Steinway grand. Next up? The redevelopment of the nearby Blue Lagoon, a spring-fed cove and restaurant where guests once danced until dawn. geejamcollection.com. $$$$
