What We Love

  • Take advantage of the onsite entertainment options and amenities at nearby Legends Resort. 

Things to Know

  • The resort is approximately 80 minutes from the airport. 
  • Enjoy twice the luxury thanks to a partnership with nearby Legends Resort. 
  • Maximize your vacay hours by checking pick-up times on scheduled transfers. 
If life has you craving an escape, then book a Jamaican vacation and head to Samsara Cliff Resort & Spa in Negril.

At this one-of-a-kind Jamaican resort, you can take advantage of incredible views, poolside fun, indulgent relaxation and more. For a different kind of fun, claim your spot on one of the sun-splashed decks carved from the cliffs and bask in the warm glow of the sun.

If you're more of a beach bum, head down to the white-sand beach via a series of steps and ladders that quickly transport you to the waves. Or, if you are feeling particularly daring, get down to the water the traditional "island way" with cliff jumping. 

Finally, after working up an appetite, you'll be glad the buffet at Samsara Restaurant is all you can eat. Once a week the restaurant features Jamaica Night, pairing Jamaican cuisine with live entertainment and groovy reggae music. Because the resort shares privileges with its sister resort, Legends Resort, you get twice the options for activities and meals. Be sure to set aside some time for the Pasta Fiesta on Tuesdays at Legends Restaurant.

    Feels like home every time

    First let me start off by saying this was our fouth trip to Samsara and this is only my second review. When you don’t have a thing to worry about, you forget to do a review. We have stayed Garden side, Oceanview, and pillar house three times. From the first time we came here as a couple four years ago on our honeymoon, Samsara and it’s staff, has made this hotel feel like a second home. Samsara has great views of the ocean and great snorkelling. They also have quiet sunlit cottages where you can swing in your hammock all day. Free shuttle as others have mentioned daily to sister property on 7 Mile. Cleanliness is never an issues, and the resort grounds crew and maintenance - George and Marvin take great care in their work. Meals have always been genuine home cooking, however we often support other restaurants and venture out and about. Lots of exterior upgrades in the last few years, continue to upkeep, unlike some smaller hotels. Peter and Omar, two guys you want with you on the street! Omar will take you anywhere safely, and Peter is there every time you cross or have a question. Front desk staff are always pleasant to speak with, checking in and out is never a problem. Owayne was a bartender for 3 years previously, and first made us feel welcome at Samsara. Only have view pictures, because that’s what you’re there for! 5 stars, this time, and the last 3!

    First time

    It was our first trip to Jamaica, but we are already booked to go back this summer. The food is delicious and the scenery fantastic. We enjoyed snorkeling and cliff diving. We met other couples from all over the world. As amazing as it all was, my favorite thing about it was the people that work there. They genuinely want you to have a wonderful vacation. So friendly and helpful.

    A great vacation

    My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Samsara Cliff Resort. We enjoyed the quiet, small setting . Staff were really friendly and we felt safe. The room was great - ocean view and a king size bed. The shuttle to Legends was great way to get over to the beach. We were able to walk to other restaurants from Samsara and Legends. We used the tennis court, and I enjoyed diving off the cliffs.

    Slow down and relax

    This was our second visit and we feel so happy to have found a little piece of heaven. The staff is so friendly and kind. This property is peaceful. The cliffside views are stunning throughout Negril. All you have to do is enjoy the cooking on the property and the many businesses in Negril and the famous beach. The sister property Legends is fun to visit and walk the beach for a day.
