A Christmas hotel for Jamaica – Takuma Boutique Hotel

The Community of Mt Zion is about to undergo a major socio-economical shift as Delroy Allen, one of Jamaica’s former elite tennis professionals and businessman returns home with a master plan to revitalize the community, with the opening of Takuma Boutique Hotel—the first in Mt Zion. 

Delroy Allen is a member of the Mount Zion community and he believes, based on his ancestral history, that Takuma, a prominent and feared spiritual healer alleged to have led to the demise of Annie Palmer, is his great-great grandfather. At the age of six, he received an enlightening dream that led him to research the rich history of his ancestors. The findings, which are deeply intertwined with the renowned history of Rosehall and the Mt. Zion community, saw to the birthing of Takuma Boutique Hotel—his ancestral dream. 

Nestled amongst lush vegetation in historic Mt Zion, just minutes away from The Rosehall GreatHouse and adjacent to the historic Mount Zion Presbyterian Church built in 1838, this unique gem is perfect for travelers who seek adventure, and yearn to experience island living from the vantage point of the locals.  

Takuma Boutique Hotel boasts a penthouse and five beautifully decorated suites that showcase aspects of Jamaica’s vibrant culture in a modern-day setting. Guests will have fun choosing a fully equipped suite (with state-of-the-art appliances)or guestroom that is uniquely decorated and bears the name of a historic landmark in Mount Zion. The suites are airy and offer the best of modern-day comfort. Culturally inspired furnishings feature tasteful drapes, crisp clean linen, natural fiber wicker made in Mount Zion and dark wood furniture. The sleek, modern bathrooms feature splendid ceramic tiles andchrome fixtures.
