Kudehya Guesthouse is the ideal place to settle down and enjoy a true slow life experience. Kudeh! Kuya! (Look over there! And over there!). Embrace the new culture, the landscapes and the no WiFi policy and enjoy the guesthouse owners’ warm welcome. Iyaras, the co-owner of the property and a Rastafari, has Ethiopian origins and he is an intriguing, interesting and sweet human being. His life journey led him to Caiman Islands, then Toronto and finally to Treasure Beach where he finally accomplished his dream: build and launch his own guesthouse in Jamaica.

The property little rooms will become your happy place. They are basic but modern and clean, decorated with beautiful Rasta colors and contemporary or traditional African art pieces. The view from Dehya suite is breathtaking. For dinner, Iyaras invites his guests to taste an Ital menu in synch with his life values: vegetarian diet, no salt, organic ingredients and no alcohol. Great evenings with friendly conversation, slow precious life moments and Jamaican authenticity at its best.

    My wife and I spent several blissfully peaceful days 2 years ago, and we will soon go back. The ground floor accommodations do not offer the save view, but the small terrace and the well tended yard were the perfect setting to enjoy Iyaras’ superb Ital breakfasts, a vegeterian delight made from fresh ingredients, many coming from his own vegetable garden. A beautiful unspoiled spot, great food and friendly conversations. A welcome break from the rat race and the concrete jungle.
