What are the accommodations like?

Nothing really fancy. The suites at Lost Beach Resort are cool concrete and tile, with air conditioning, ceiling fans, a complete, equipped kitchenette, a living/dining area, and a large verandah right on the beach, just a stones throw from the sea. There are no phones or TVs or internet access in the rooms - these services are all available in the main office if you just cannot manage to break away from the real world and relax! The Beach Cottage and Beach Cabins are a lot like camping, but have a seaside porch, a toilet and shower, and a mini-kitchenette, all right on the beach.

How did Lost Beach Resort get here?

The Welch Family has been coming to Jamaica since the 1970s they love the rich culture, friendly people, delicious food, and tropical climate that they found here. While trying to look at some land for sale almost two decades ago, Steven got hopelessly lost on the rough back roads that were more like goat tracks no, really, the roads are waaay better now ! He asked a young man walking along the road where he could find the land that was for sale. He was told that the land right in front of him was for sale, and this is what is now known as Lost Beach! Of course, this was not the piece of ground Steven had originally been looking for - it was much nicer and he bought it! Steven was lost when he found the perfect property, hence the name Lost Beach Resort. Steven is a licensed builder in Michigan, so Steven and Elizabeth designed and built the resort themselves. That young man who helped Steven on the road is Picky, the (now retired) Building Supervisor for Lost Beach, who helped the Welchs build the resort literally bucket by bucket of concrete. The lovely gardens at Lost Beach are filled with plants and flowers found at the Black River Flower Show held annually every Easter Monday, as well as from the local yards and farms. The furniture is handcrafted by locals of Jamaican Blue Mahor, Jamaicas national tree. The resort is staffed by locals and in every way the Welchs have tried to make Lost Beach Resort a place where guests can comfortably experience the real Jamaica that they fell in love with so long ago.

How do I get to Lost Beach Resort?

You will need to catch a ride on your favorite air carrier to Montego Bays Sangster International Airport. We can arrange round trip airport transfers for you if you so choose, and whisk you away to Lost Beach where a cold Red Stripe and/or umbrella drink and a hammock await you. We hope to see you soon!
