Earth Day is Everyday at Kanopi House

Yesterday was Earth Day. So, it was perfectly fitting that I'd spend the afternoon at beautiful Kanopi House. As with all treasures, this property has an elusive quality to it, being cleverly tucked between the Dragon Bay hotel and the villa-lined bay of the Blue Lagoon. Once you've found it though, you realise you've struck gold. This gem features six eco-friendly tree-houses all made and bearing the names of regional hardwood; Spanish Elm, Sweetwood or Almond Tree.

The entire trip was an other-wordly experience for me, even by Port Antonio standards. However, the highpoints of my visit were the outdoor shower at the Spanish Elm house, everything about the Almond Tree house and the view from the main dining area. A picture may say a thousand words, but nothing beats seeing it in person. I really hope you get a chance to see first-hand.

All in all, I'm immensely grateful to Jacqui Neil, property manager, for the invitation and also for being such a gracious hostess. Its one Earth Day I won't soon forget.
