No neon signs or advertising will draw your attention to Nirvana on the Beach. You could walk right past the resort without noticing the unpretentious driveway that leads into a glorious tropical garden on Jamaica’s famed Negril Beach.

Palm fringed, with silky soft, powder-white sand, Negril Beach stretches for about 4 miles on the western tip of this Caribbean island. Nirvana, in the center of Negril Beach, is caressed by warm turquoise waters.

A rural New York couple, Lonnie and Stanley Gottlieb discovered Negril Beach decades ago when the free-spirited hippie generation appreciated the laid-back lifestyle the Negril area offers. They built Nirvana on a 2 acre plot of beachfront jungle in the mid 1980s.

The 9 unit guest property is inspired by nature. Beachfront cottages have two or three bedrooms and spacious living/dining rooms. Furnishings are simple and unpretentious, yet charming, with wicker chairs and plantation blinds.

Nirvana on the Beach is simple living in a perfect climate.

A PIECE OF HEAVEN ON EARTH

  • 5 out of 5
I've been going to Nirvana for at least ten years. It's a laid back kind of place...cottages, simple and kept spotlessly clean...you feel like you're in botanical gardens...you never feel like you're being intruded upon...it's safe and peaceful. The grounds are kept clean 24 hours a day. The staff is amazing and so helpful. In the morning, you hear the gentle lilt of Jamaican accents...as you awake to the scent of Blue Mountain coffee brewing... you can get your laundry done...you can have one meal a day cooked for you. Nirvana has it's own stretch of beach and you're never intruded upon...you can just relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. It's in the middle of everything and can walk to all the restaurants on the beach. There's music every night, somewhere along the beach. So, if you want a peaceful, private holiday, without the glitz and glamour of a hotel, try the little cottage in Negril, have a holiday at Nirvana.

PERFECTION IN PARADISE

  • 5 out of 5
This was my first time to Jamaica and thanks to Nirvana and it's people, it will not be my last trip. Everything is clean, the people are great, close to everything, just absolutely peaceful and enjoyable. People from the high end all inclusives were envious because of the beach area being open and uncrowded. And if you really want to be with the crowds, you are within walking distance. If you are wanting a homey, comfortable, and clean atmosphere then this is the place. Thanks to Zemroy, Sharon, Breezy, Shine, Errol, and the ladies, I now have a new family. Go! It's worth it.

GREAT FOR KIDS

  • 5 out of 5
I think it's the nicest place on the whole beach! We had hours and hours when we were the only ones in the water or on the beach: it was amazing to feel so uncrowded and safe and relaxed. We loved all the shade and the space. Errol was always nearby, making sure we were ok with the vendors or if our kid needed a floatie :). He was chill and alert. Loved him. And Sandra greeted us when we arrived! So nice! And Doris got David his heart meds right away. And the room was clean & perfect, as you recommended (the first-floor suite, so our kid could run in and out easily).

The grounds were gorgeous! And Moses told us about the trees when we asked. It was awesome. We'd come back in a second.
Take care,
Dana (from snowy Winnipeg)

PS. Last year, we stayed at a huge, beautiful all - inclusive, and the beach was crowded and there was a scramble for shade everywhere. Nirvana is wayyyyyyy better :)

STAY HERE FOR A REALLY NICE RELAXING TIME

  • 5 out of 5
Nirvana is AMAZING. The people are SO friendly. It is a 30 second walk from your bed to the beautiful beach, clear blue water and sun. The grounds are so well-maintained and people cook for you if you get the food. It is a short walk from many restaurants and activities. The only downside is no air conditioning in cottage #3. But honestly - it didn't bother me at all. It is a true deal and I highly recommend it!

NEW FAVORITE VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 out of 5
Nirvana was in the perfect location that allowed us to get away from the typical resort-style vacation. By far the nicest beach and grounds we saw on our walks up and down the beach. The staff was very friendly, the room was spotless, and the information provided in the room was helpful. We didn't know what to expect and were a little nervous about being on our own in Negril but were pleasantly surprised with the whole trip. We will definitely be back (hopefully in the near future!) to Nirvana.

Tips: 1) Grocery store 10 minutes by taxi, but plenty of restaurants on beach. Try jerk stands on the roadside, especially The Best in the West, across the street, for the best grilled shrimp. 2) Bring bug spray for mosquitoes after sunset. 3) Bring a flashlight just in case. 4) Go the the West End/Cliffs and LTU Pub for a beautiful view and amazing food.

MY KIND OF PLACE

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed at Nirvana in Mid March this year. It was our 1st time to Jamiaca. I stumbled upon reviews and a website for Nirvana. I took a chance and booked our stay without any personal references. I could not have picked a better place to stay. Even walking the beaches I don't believe I could have stayed anywhere else and been as happy. We stayed in the Veranda Suite and fit our needs perfectly. All the staff was wonderful!!! Eveyone introduced themselves and were very friendly and helpful. to The landscape at Nirvana was perfectly manicured. Hats off to Moses and his crew.The security crew Errol, Shine & Nicardo were the best. The beach was wonderful. Errol put our chairs out every morning. The house keeping staff was in and out before you knew it. Leon our driver took us serveral places, He was great. There are bars and restaurants very close buy. We are not into big all inclusive resorts, if that is what you are looking for Nirvana is not for you. We really got to experience a true Jamiacan vacation. We walked the beaches. We were at Nirvana 8 days and felt we could have stayed there forever. There is so much to do and see we should have stayed longer. We will definately be back.
