We’re planning a trip (and a resort-style home makeover) ASAP.

If you’ve ever wondered what it would look like if Palm Springs and Key West came together and created a resort baby together (as we all have), we’ve found a pretty close match.

The Skylark Negril Beach, the latest outpost to hit Jamaica’s resort scene, blends laid-back beachy style with mid-century mod vibes—and to say we’re obsessed with the outcome is an understatement. The 28-room hotel—sister property to Jamaica’s beloved Rockhouse hotel—takes its cues from various design movements, with Italian modernist furnishings and Dorothy Draper-esque pink-and-white stripes playing well with art deco bamboo paneling and mid-century geometric breeze block.

But the whole of its inspiration—including its stellar color story—comes straight from the landscape around it. Guest room doors are each painted in colors inspired by the mesmerizing Caribbean Sea, while shades of green reflect the property’s lush native vegetation and pops of red the island’s signature ackee fruit. Pinks and other vibrant shades are also prevalent in the guest rooms—shout outs to the houses that dot Negril’s West End.

And, of course, the ‘Gram-worthy moments don’t stop at the hotel’s interiors. Venture out to the Skylark’s 220-foot private white-sand beach, where modern turquoise lounge chairs await, and you’ll be greeted to the most pristine view of them all.

While this color-blessed beauty officially opens after Labor Day, the hotel is currently offering special preview rates through the fall season at $95(!). Rates during the high season (late December to mid-April) will run from $175 to $250.
