BENEFIT DINNER & DANCE, SATURDAY FEBRUARY 12, 2011
Held around the beautifully decorated poolside of The Palmyra Resort & Spa with the stage erected across the pool
to the backdrop of The Palmyra's signature pavilion, Fae Ellington did a fabulous job as the MC for The Palmyra
Foundation's Benefit Dinner & Dance on the weekend's second night. The Palmyra Foundation's Robert Trotta
reminded the audience that educating children is not only the responsibility of governments, but also society. Trotta
has not only invested heavily in the island's tourist industry, but in the lives of the country's most vulnerable, - its
children. Said Trotta: "As the fortunate citizens of a society, it is our job to help the children."
Outstanding performances were delivered by Jamaican jazz & blues icon Myrna Hague Bradshaw and the Dwight
Richards band, before headliner and season two winner of American Idol, Grammy nominated American R&B artiste
Ruben Studdard took to the stage. With a powerful, soulful performance, Studdard enthralled concert goers up-
close and personal at the poolside of the new Montego Bay resort with a selection of great songs. Said spokesperson

AMAZING ADVENTURES AT GOOD HOPE
Located near the new port of Falmouth, 20 minutes from
Montego Bay in the picturesque Cockpit Country, Chukka at
Good Hope has certainly managed to showcase the important
role this property played in Jamaica's history. Everyone who
was familiar with the stunning Good Hope Estate before its
transformation will quickly acknowledge that its landscape
and historic charm has in no way been disturbed. Says John
Byles, Chukka's Co-Managing Director, "True to our brand,
t bwe are keeping everything as natural as possible, all tours

in the trees." Ropes for the zip lines are manufactured from special materials NASA uses in their space program,
which reduce the noise when people go zipping through the jungle.
With buildings and ruins scattered around the 2,000 acre property, few spots offer so much to discover in one
place and Chukka at Good Hope provides an endless option of adventures, history and culinary experiences.
This site offers to everyone, regardless of tour taken, the viewing of a world class potter in residence, exhibitions
of original sugar cane crushing technique, and the interesting incorporation of 250 year old buildings into the
main amenities area. There is lots to do, adding value to the more adventuresome at heart.
The Chukka team has done an amazing job blending the old world charm of Good Hope with modern
conveniences, making it the destination of 11 different adventures smacked into lush plant life, primary jungle
and scenic views of the majestic Martha Brae river.
Chukka at Good Hope launched its adventures with the arrival of the first ever cruise ship; 'The Voyager of the

BAREFOOT LUXURY AT GOLDENEYE
Famous for being the man who worked
ol with Jimmy Cliff, Burning Spear, Third
World and many other Jamaican artists
and ensured Jamaica's sensual reggae
rhythms infiltrated even the most
s remote areas of the planet, Blackwell's
name will forever be intertwined with
Jazz guitarist Ernie Ranglin and Chris Blackwell at GoldenEye in 2009 global music icon Bob Marley. This
(Photo: cou'tosy of Chris claekw/ ie) Jamaican entrepreneur made his
fortune in the music industry with the 1959 formation of Island Records, a venture he built into the world's most
successful and groundbreaking independent record label. Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2001,
Blackwell is recognized as the single person most responsible for turning the world onto reggae music.
money to record their first album without a contract.
Blackwell's gesture led to the long term success of both Marley and Island Records. Of his experience with Marley
Blackwell says; "He trusted my instincts, which were that he should go after being a rock star, rather than a
star on black American radio. His music was rough and raw and exciting, but all black American music at the
time, other than James Brown, was very slick and smooth. Bob trusted me on that, he was as keen as I was."
When Blackwell got Eric Clapton to record a rock version of Marley's "I Shot The Sheriff", history was made.
Island Records and Blackwell himself became renowned for a relaxed, nurturing vibe and an imaginative flair for
marketing. The secret of the music moguls success resided with his skill in spotting and creating trends, his gift
for finding talent and his insistence on quality control. Over thirty years, the mastermind behind Island Records
gave the world rock stars U2, Cat Stevens, Steve Winwood, Melissa Etheridge, Tom Waits, The Cranberries, Grace
Jones, Richard Thompson, PJ Harvey, Roxy Music and Robert Palmer, just to name a few. Blackwell sold Island
Records in 1989, eight years after Bob Marley died from cancer at the tender age of 36. "It got too big for me,
and the enjoyment was not there anymore. It was never the same after Bob died. It was about so much more
than music when he was alive."
Blackwell currently runs Island Outpost, which he set up to operate and market a group of elite resorts in
Jamaica including Strawberry Hill in the Blue Mountains, Jake's in Treasure Beach, The Caves in Negril, and
the recording studio and private hotel Geejam near Port Antonio, where artists such as Gwen Stefani and No
Doubt, Drake and Gorillaz have recorded.
The former music mogul is now putting his sizeable talent into the creation of his new master piece; GoldenEye
Hotels & Resorts. He draws comparisons from the music industry to the real estate industry; "It is almost like
having a great song, gives you the responsibility of making a great record. It is the same with GoldenEye and
the overall masterplan for the area. You have the responsibility to make sure it is amazing."
Blackwell bought GoldenEye from the lan Fleming estate in 1976.
He started renting out Fleming's main villa, and soon started
receiving requests from visitors who wanted to buy a little slice
of heaven. "That is what made me think I should probably
develop the property," he explains. Walking around barefoot,
Blackwell has spent decades and at least USS50 million since
the mid-90's, creating a hide-away that captures what he
considers to be the island's true charm. Says the developer
SJamaica's magic is the breeze."
The magical spot possesses significant family history and a
lifetime of memories for Blackwell, who grew up swimming in
The FieldSpa at GoldenEye, home base to the resorts the waters off the Oracabessa coast in the summers, when not
wellness programs (Photo: courtesyof Island Outpost) attending boarding school in England. Considered the love of lan
Fleming's later life, his mother Blanche Lindo became the James Bond author's muse and the inspiration for the
character Pussy Galore in Goldfinger. Explains Blackwell; "lan built the house in 1948, and he wrote all the Bond
books at GoldenEye. You really could say that James Bond was born here." The combination of GoldenEye's history
as the birthplace of James Bond with Blackwell's fame as the discoverer of Bob Marley, has created a mystique
and an allure that is hard to match. Artists and musicians have been enjoying the
i : mquility of GoldenEye for years. Reveals Blackwell; "Sting wrote Every Breath
S You Take here and Bono has been here several times. Recent visitors
include, Scarlett Johanson and Tom Waits. Jay-Z and Beyonce spent
Christmas with us."

gardens, palms and mangrove (Photo: courtesy of Island Outpost) swimmer Barrington Roper, with whom he used to go spear fishing at
GoldenEye (Photo: courtesy of Chris Rlackwell)
You just have to admire Chris Blackwell's attitude to life and his openness to new ideas, which has brought him
extraordinary opportunities throughout his life. However, you soon realize that part of Blackwell's genius lies in
having a long term plan that he commits fully to bringing to fruition. This is definitely the case with GoldenEye,
a place as enthralling as its history. The property boasts an enormous variety of trees, plants, flowers and birds
and puts you at complete ease the moment you step through its entrance to see the beach resort's drawbridge
reveal itself through the trees as a hidden paradise.
GoldenEye includes 9 beach cottages and 8 lagoon units, ranging from USS840k for a single bedroom hideaway
- to USS1,8m for a 2 bedroom beach cottage. On the beautiful lagoon side, you can purchase a studio cottage
with an oceanfront deck from where you can dive straight into the turquoise lagoon. The cottages come with a
lot upon which you can build a villa. GoldenEye's group of purchasers is an international clientele of people who
are attracted to the resorts rustic privacy. States the developer; "The GoldenEye lifestyle is not for everyone."

The luxurious hide-away forms part of a Masterplan to develop Oracabessa Bay into a waterfront resort community.
He describes the lan Fleming Airport, which is large enough for private planes to land, as a great addition to the area.
Firmly rooted in his community, Blackwell set up the Oracabessa Foundation in the mid-90's to inform the locals
about his plans, market the project and create a community spirit. To this day, the Foundation has monthly information
meetings to ensure that the community is on board with the development plans. "I started working with these musicians
from the streets. Those are the real people," explains Blackwell. In practical terms, the Foundation has donated a wing
to the local school, assisted with various sports program and helped the community in various ways.
The latest of his adventures is the recent launch of "Blackwell Gold" rum, an idea started by his friend Richard
Kirschenbaum, who owns a successful advertising agency in New York. "Dark rum is going to be the next big
thing," says Blackwell. One just has to marvel at the creativity of the promoter, who is as laid back and
disarmingly charming as the island on which he lives. Visit www.goldny.com

Clarke; "I put together programs that are adapted to
the individual's needs, whether their objective is weight
loss, body sculpting or simply staying in shape."
Extremely result oriented, the fitness professional takes
pride in making his clients look and feel good, by
helping them to adapt healthy exercise and nutritional

Technical instruction to avoid injury is one of the many benefits of a objectives. Says the fitness expert; "The most important
personal trainer (Photo: C. Clarke) thing to me is that my clients accomplish their goals."
In addition to providing motivational support and proper technical instruction, the get-in-shape-guru keeps
records of his clients' exercise sessions to help monitor progress, and advises his clients on how to modify
their lifestyle outside of the gym to improve their overall health. Explains Clarke; "The benefit of a personal
trainer lies in several areas. Aside from benefiting from expert advice and a tailor made fitness program, which
ensures efficient workouts, there is great value in the encouragement of a personal trainer who can help you
stay focused on your goals while still making exercise enjoyable."
management of the company. The experience he gained in customer service from his time at both corporations
has been an important key to his success. Combining his professional attitude to service and extensive knowledge
in the area of fitness, Clarke has created a platform from which he has been able to firmly establish himself as
the leading personal trainer in Jamaica.
The exercise professional has recorded several fitness programs with his client columnist, author, talk show
host and lecturer Dr. Tony Vendryes, the leading holistic and wellness expert in Jamaica, who refers to him as
the country's "number one personal trainer". He regularly works with famous local personalities including reggae
superstar Jimmy Cliff, dancehall singer Ce'Cile and Peter Lloyd, one of Jamaica's most successful actors and
member of the prestigious Screen Actor's Guild of America. While Peter Lloyd credits Clarke with "transforming
my health and my body, both internally and aesthetically , singer Ce'Cile describes his workout as "totally awesome".
After several years working from a local gym, Clarke now practices freelance, offering personal training at
client's homes or workouts with visitors staying at various resorts in the Montego Bay area. With the popularity

With his striking physique, the 6.1 foot Kingstonian is a great endorsement for the benefits of a good fitness
regiment and a healthy lifestyle. A certified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Trainer, AFAA (Aerobics and
Fitness Association of America) as well as a certified Nutrition/wellness consultant AFPA (American Fitness
Professionals & Associates), Clarke has a multifaceted repertoire which he pulls from and adapts to each client's
requirements. He also knows how to get results for his clients without putting them through the agony of a boot
camp and has gained a reputation as a personal trainer with a no-nonsense, efficient approach. The steadily
growing number of happy, healthy clients who are willing to pay top dollar for his expertise, provides ample
proof of his ability to deliver what his devotee's want. Explains Clarke: "My service consists of 1/3 exercise, 1/3
diet and 1/3 motivational and inspirational support."
The personal trainer decided to follow his passion for fitness after numerous years in corporate Jamaica. His
first experience with the health & fitness industry started in the Spanish speaking department of a subsidiary
of LA-based company '24 Hour Fitness' a decade ago, giving advice and selling memberships to non-English
speaking gym members. While subsequently working at internationally renowned printing company Vistaprint
Ltd, where he was recognized for his fast, friendly & dedicated service, Clarke started training the corporate

of personal training outdoors on the rise, paving the way for more creative ways to exercise, Clarke takes full
advantage of Jamaica's unique backdrop to create spectacular workouts. He explains; "I like to take advantage
of the scenery and climate that Jamaica has to offer to help clients take their minds off their workouts."
To ensure exercise routines don't get monotonous or tedious, Clarke uses the island's environment to switch up
his client's workouts. States the trainer, "For cardio vascular exercise, a walk or run along the golf course to
the picturesque views of waterfalls and beautiful scenery is a great way to make exercising enjoyable. One of
the most unique things Jamaica has to offer is the Caribbean Sea, - water is a great way to switch up workouts
and make them more efficient. Training in water also burns more calories, so I often use the ocean or pool for
Aquasize or Water Aerobics." The trainer often uses the beach for strength drills, boxing gloves outside or does
stretching exercises to the sound of the waves and views of the ocean.

Says New York based Kristi Henderson, a PR professional who trains with Clarke when she visits Jamaica every
few months; "I really appreciate the variety that Christopher offers in his workouts. I have a tendency to get
quickly bored with exercise routines, but he keeps it new and fresh each day. He does not confine my workouts
to a gym and if it is nice outside, he will suggest walking or running outside and doing exercises on the beach."
Clarke's ability to adapt to his clients' schedules is an essential element to the many celebrities and business
owners who use his services to stay fit in the middle of hectic lives. Hence, his aptitude to deliver efficient
workouts at the client's convenience has become Clarke's trademark and the goal oriented trainer prides himself
in making his clients get fit in record time. Says Lester Scott, General Manager at The Palmyra Resort & Spa,
who works out with Clarke on a regular basis; "Chris' clients are walking advertisements! He really takes pride
in you looking good, and helps you accomplish your goals whether it is too lose weight or to tone up." The
hospitality professional credits the trainer with a multifaceted approach which has helped him achieve his target
weight and generally tone up in a mere 6 weeks.
Practicing what he preaches, Clarke doesn't smoke or drink and lives a healthy lifestyle, which is clearly
evidenced from his amazingly perfect physique. His impressive frame and handsome face have landed him on
calendars, T-shirts, key chains and corporate ads, and his appearance on the catwalk of Caribbean Fashion
Week has been featured in the national newspapers. Recently, the fitness guru had the ladies whistling at his
beautiful body and fabulous six-pack at a Montego Bay fashion show.

'FARM TO TABLE' DINNERS IN ST. ELIZABETH
A sustainable agriculture advocate, Liz Solms
came to Jamaica in 2005 in order to establish
the island's first organic farmers cooperative after
receiving a prestigious grant from California's
'Foundation for Sustainability and Innovation'. An
accomplished Chef with a minor in Caribbean
studies and a culinary degree in community food
education from Heifer International, the
b n Pennsylvania native arrived on the island ready to
take on the challenge of promoting and refining
sustainable agriculture practices.
Perhaps it was a childhood firmly rooted in the
Gourmet dinner in the middle of the fields of Jamaica's 'breadbasket' St. urban environment of Philadelphia that compelled
Elizabeth(Photo: Contributed hyizS olms) Liz to adventure deep into the bush and the
mountains, in search of the island's most natural and time-honored ways to grow crops. Drawing on previous
experience working for international organizations that promote sustainable agriculture, Liz established the
Treasure Beach Ital Farmers Association' with local farmers in the parish of St. Elizabeth, training the 4 founding
farms in organic production, marketing, and distribution.
Through Banana Tree Consulting, Liz offers assistance to villas, hotels and commercial farms that wish to
establish organic on-site gardens. Her expertise includes everything from the development of infrastructure to
connection to the local supply chain of organic produce. Defined as food grown in harmony with nature without
the use of synthetic or chemical fertilizers, on land that has been absent of chemicals for a minimum of 3
years. Jamaica's organic food is certified by Jamaica Organic Agricultural Movement (JOAM), a voluntary
organization. Recognized in Europe and Britain, JOAM promotes much stricter standards than are applied in the
US, where food only needs to be 700% organically grown to achieve organic certification.
According to the agricultural expert, her greatest pleasure comes from providing small farmers with a viable
market, while enhancing a hotel's menu with beautiful, local produce. On any given day, you may find Liz up
to her waist in a cassava field reasoning with a local farmer, or perhaps gardening shoulder to shoulder with a
villa's gardener, teaching the tricks of the organic trade. Today, Liz lives and works with three farms in the
fruitful area of St. Elizabeth, a parish that she knows like the back of her hand. Affectionately called the
breadbasket' of Jamaica, the region has rightfully earned its name due to the fact that a lot of the island's
produce is grown here.
Working with farmers, the idea of hosting farm dinners seemed to be a natural evolution. The fact that Jake's,
one of Island Outpost's boutique hotels located on Treasure Beach, purchases its produce from small organic
farms in St. Elizabeth, created the perfect match. In collaboration with Jake's. Liz first introduced farm to table'
dinners for people in Jamaica as a celebration of local farming, produce and cuisine. Explains Liz, "We want to
bring people back to the source of the food, where it comes from and at the same time teach people the art
and science of organic growing."
Set on a small farm in the hills of St. Elizabeth, 10 minutes down the road from Jake's, the scrumptious feast
starts with appetizers and cocktails whipped up from the farm's very own fresh fruit at 5:30 pm. Dinner is
served under a large mango tree, on an elegant white linen table surrounded by lanterns placed in the middle
of a field, bordered with curling vineyard-like rows of yam vines. Starting at 6:30 pm, dishes such as penne
with fresh lime basil, local goat cheese crostini and chicken with dill yogurt sauce are served family-style in
large bowls for up to 35 persons.
All meals are prepared using organic ingredients and paired perfectly with exquisite wines, provided by experts
like Caribbean Producers Jamaica. "The meal consists of four courses including the appetizer and offers options
for both vegetarians and meat lovers," explains Liz. The plan is to invite celebrity chefs and wine sommeliers to

the dinners and host honey experts for the tasting of their locally produced fare. With no electricity at the farm,
the romantic atmosphere is emphasized by the sunset, the plethora of lit candles and the old-fashioned kerosene
lamps. "Our dinners have a very special vibe and people usually leave having made new friends," comments Liz.
While the farm dinners have received quite a bit of media coverage, the biggest marketing tool has been the
island's very effective word of mouth. "We get a lot of Kingstonians, who gladly take the 2 hour drive to St.
Elizabeth to join our farm dinners," explains Liz. Held the Saturday of each month that is closest to full moon,
farm dinners are planned for April 16th, May 14th and June 11th.
Reserve your farm dinner spot by calling Jake's at 965-3000 or visit www.islandoutpost.com. For information

movement believes resides within all of us. Rohan, who pays famers twice the average wage, decided that his
farm would not use pesticides and follow the 'Ital' way of natural farming. Explains Rohan; "My goal was to get
the coffee certified as organic in Jamaica and then the United States."
In 2010, Marley Coffee officially joined the other elite Jamaican Blue Mountain companies licensed to sell Blue
Mountain Coffee. Says Balram Vaswani, CEO of Marley Coffee; "Marley coffee is a great marriage of two brands
which both hold their own legacy." Marley Coffee Farms received their organic license from the Jamaica Organic
Agricultural Movement and USDA organic status in 2011.
O Rohan's aim is to operate a sustainable farm
in the community; "I love my father very much
and would like to carry on his legacy with the
creativity he passed onto all of his children.
I have used my talent to make Marley
Coffee and, in my own way, make the world
a better place."
In line with the late reggae icon's love for
football, Marley Coffee has also established the
Organic coffee beans (Photo:Marl Cofoee) 'Kicks for a Cause' charity. Explains the social
entrepreneur; "The goal of our Foundation is to build soccer fields and run soccer camps for children in coffee-
producing communities around the world. With a little bit of direction, they can turn around their lives."
The spokesman for all of the Marley family's business entities, Rohan plans to open a Marley Coffee House
which will showcase the Marley family history and the organic movement in Jamaica. Marley Coffee will also
be releasing a new, all handpicked Grade 1 Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee in the next few months called "Top
Rankin". All the coffee beans are small batch roasted to ensure utmost quality. Explains the coffee producer;
"Our father taught us to make dreams a reality, 12 years ago I wanted to get into the coffee business and here
I am today."
Marley Coffee can be found in the US and Canada at Whole Foods, Dean & Deluca, Sobey's and many Mom and
Pop stores all throughout North America. To find Marley Coffee on island contact Brew Brothers at 876-953-3404

After purchasing the idyllic 52-acre property with its quaint cottage and flowing

property had once been a coffee farm through conversations with local farmers.
