Suga Finds the Key to the Pie at Blue Skies Beach Resort!

Fairly new from welcoming first guests last year and published earlier this year by The Jamaica Observer, we learnt that US civil rights attorney, Dana Kurtz opened Blue Skies Beach Resort (Ig: @blueskiesbeachresort) and realised her dream. This led to her also driving the dreams of aspiring Jamaican Chefs.

I can appreciate the old authenticity of shacks and huts on Negril beach, but appreciate modernizing it even more. Negril is one of the top tourist destinations in the world and we should move with the times and strive to keep it as such.

If strolling on Negril’s 7 mile beach, you cannot miss the Blue Skies Beach Resort. Bright blue and new furnishings on its wooden sea deck with not one, but 2 bars and blazing music. They also advertised having the best Coffee on the beach, but we were on a Rum run.

Fast forward to night time, we approached from Norman Manley Boulevard where they have a bit of construction happening for greater things to come. There was a Baby Shower happening on the top deck, but we were still able to get suitable parking.

With the event happening, more staff should have been on deck (literally) that night, but Chef Sanika Clarke picked up double duty and greeted us like guests to her own home. She took our order and still attended to us even when our server, Veronica introduced herself to us mid-service. Veronica was quite hospitable as well.

Blue Skies Beach Resort focuses on Jamaican cuisine, but had International and Italian options as well.
We enjoyed the enhanced flavours of each dish by local herbs, spices and fresh farm veggies, topped off by freshly made, scrumptious dessert made by Chef Sanika herself.

🍴Spicy Crayfish soup (spicy and tasty!)
🍴Chicken soup (tasty!)

🍴Fried Farm Fresh Okra (delish!)


🍴Roasted Conch (yum, nom nom!)
🍴Oxtail (a bit too heavy on the spices & herbs, but still tasty)
🍴Bread Pudding (the Rum Caramel sauce was 🔥)
🍴Key Lime Pie (Perfection👌🏾👏🏾)

Blue Skies Beach Resort is definitely #SugaEndorsed.
