Boutique property in the heart of Kingston
Pool and fitness center are tiny
Blending old-world Caribbean charm with modern conveniences, Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel is a hit with guests. Situated in downtown Kingston, Jamaica, the property is ideal for vacationers and business travelers who don't mind staying a bit removed from the shoreline (the closest beach is about 10 miles southwest). Aside from the attentive and friendly service from the staff, visitors consistently praise the hotel's 41 suites. Accommodations feature walk-in rain showers, complimentary Wi-Fi access, smart TVs with wireless keyboards, Persian rugs and separate lounge areas. When you're not relaxing in your room, check out the hotel's other facilities, such as the Regency Bar & Lounge, a favorite among guests thanks to its late night service. While visitors say the property's pool and fitness center are small, reviewers rave about the two on-site eateries. The Regency Restaurant offers a fine dining menu and atmosphere, while The Terrace is more casual. You'll also find an on-site pastry shop with homemade desserts and chocolates. Plus, if you tire of the hotel's cuisine, you're within walking distance of some of Kingston's top restaurants.

Critic Reviews

Lonely Planet


Kingston's grandest hotel, this colonial mansion dates from 1924, though rooms themselves have a surprisingly contemporary feel. The suites vary from regular to ultra-luxe, but king-size beds are standard – and thumbs up for the grand marble bathrooms.



This graceful former colonial mansion has refurbished rooms and elegant touches to please the discerning traveler. It's owned by the family that pioneered tourism in Jamaica.



As soon as you step into the opulent foyer of this restored great house you know you are in for something special. Rooms run from wonderful, contemporary junior suites to lavish heritage suites.
