Travellers' Choice
Treasure Beach is best known for its laid-back community and peaceful vibe. This quaint paradise on the beach is the perfect retreat for a restful escape and nature tours. Katamah is a collection of uniquely designed and deeply comfortable ocean view apartment-suites, brand new modern beach cabins and a selection of classic Moroccan Villa guest rooms tucked in the lush, shady garden. Centrally located, the guesthouse is conveniently surrounded by family owned restaurants in walking distance that can also deliver food to Katamah guests. The quiet, peaceful grounds at Katamah are a beautiful landscaped flowering garden full of butterflies and hummingbirds. Guests enjoy lounging in the Moroccan veranda by the sea, or taking in the view on the roof deck or snoozing in one of the many hammocks. Our variety of clean, spacious and stylish cabins, suites and villa rooms offer elegant and comfortable private retreats in our beautiful oasis on the beach. From Katamah, it is easy to explore the natural wonders of Treasure Beach, meet the welcoming local community, reconnect, replenish and relax!

This is our little bit of heaven, when we get to leave Kingston for a few nights. We have been staying at Katamah for several years now. It’s funky and fun. Moni and Simon have worked tirelessly to improve and constantly upgrade. You always meet likeminded and interesting people. We usually stay in the Laila, which now has a great bath, which I used constantly in our 90/95 degree temperatures. Try it…. You will love it….

Katamah is a dream. My boyfriend and I stayed last year at the beginning of the pandemic. It was a haven and became a home away from home while we were stranded in Jamaica due to lockdown. The owners couldn’t have been more welcoming and accommodating throughout our stay. The setting is magical, stepping out onto a long stretch of Jamaican beach from the private gardens and a stones throw from the best local and eateries - Diners Delight being our favorite place to eat on the island. The accommodation itself it thoughtfully constructed and decorated, most of it being hand built by the owners themselves. Each room has its own unique vibe and views into the gardens or onto the beach. We ended up staying in two different rooms on separate occasions and honestly felt like each were perfectly thought through and designed. Thank you so much Katamah, we can’t wait to come back xxx

We stayed in the room called Laila. It had an enormous bedroom with a 4 poster bed with mosquito nets, plus a single bed, a conservatory area with seating, a well equipped kitchen area, a bathroom with a freestanding bath plus another bathroom area with a great shower. I absolutely loved the room which was decorated with beautiful Morrocan furniture and a verandah area with a hammock and books. The whole site is dotted with hammocks and comfortable seating as well as an "honesty kitchen" where you help yourself to drinks. On the first morning the owner Simon came down and had a long chat with us - he is a very friendly and welcoming guy. My favourite memory is waking up to the sound of the waves as the property is on a beautiful beach and having a fantastic massage in the grounds by the lovely Empress who runs a portable spa service. I cannot wait to go back again.

Katamah Beachfront Guesthouse was the perfect place for hubby and me to celebrate my birthday, especially during a pandemic. The beach is litterly a stone's throw away, we could hear the waves from our comfy room. It was so serene, so calm and we had great time. The plus is you can't go hungry, there are tons of restaurants in close proximity or you can buy groceries and use the kitchen on the property. Everything is fresh and clean. Big up to Moni and Simon, lovely hosts...they made us feel safe and welcomed. I can't wait to go back. I definitely recommend you book a stay at Katamah, especially if you're looking for a quiet and restful time.

Love love love! What a perfectly tranquil & cool spot situated right on the beach! I had originally come for 3 days & ended up staying 11!!! You won't want to leave this beautiful family run property. There's lots of yummy food up & down treasure beach but take advantage of Katmah's open plan communal kitchen. Strong wifi everywhere on the property so it's perfect for #WFH or a staycation; I took many client calls steps away from the beach. I'll be back again & again.
