Pilkington's Preferred Resorts

Like cruises, there are many options for resorts, and some of them give the others a bad reputation. Here you will find resorts that meet my high standards of service and overall excellence.

Island Outpost, Jamaica

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.”

Choose from GoldenEye, The Caves, or Strawberry Hill
