Island Outpost - Profile

General Information

Island Outpost is a collection of distinctive Jamaica luxury hotels and villas known for their interesting character and expression that reflects the magic of music, each with its own rhythm, its own beat. As envisioned by Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records, “Island Outpost is about a feeling. The rush of discovery. The joy of independence. The bliss of authenticity. It is really about the spirit, sensibility and heart. In 1960, Island Records opened an office in Kingston, Jamaica, and a series of local hit singles soon followed. The growing Jamaican immigrant population in England also bought Island’s discs and, finding that he was selling more records in England than in Jamaica, Blackwell moved Island’s headquarters to London in 1962. A succession of minor hits followed, mainly ska records from the seminal Jamaican producers of the time, including Duke Reid, Leslie Kong and Clement “Sir Coxsone” Dodd, and within a few years Blackwell had produced or licensed several hundred singles for Island and its various subsidiary labels in Jamaica and Britain. In 1964, Blackwell produced “My Boy Lollipop” by a 15-year-old Jamaican girl named Millie, and it became the worldwide hit that launched Island’s global fortunes, selling more than 7 million copies. As a collection of luxury Jamaica hotels and resorts, Island Outpost strives to provide guests with a level of service so natural, that they would feel as if they were staying in the home of good friends. The atmosphere will be casual and friendly and we will make each a fun place with fresh and local food and efficient and unobtrusive service. We will provide guests with distinct places that share a common sensibility or aesthetic that makes them appealing to a certain kind of person. The company is committed to creating a unique, personal, relaxed experience – places where one can put a little distance between themselves and the rest of the world. Our properties: GoldenEye, Strawberry Hill, The Caves, The Fleming Villa
