As Bob Marley said, in every life we have some trouble — and when you do not escape, you make it double.

Compose your own redemption song with today’s Rasta retreat to the mountains of Jamaica for an all-inclusive stay at Zimbali Retreats.

Enjoy a four- ($811) or five-night ($940) stay for two guests in a cottage; or a four- ($2,380) or five-night ($2,738) stay for four guests in a villa, including all meals, guided tours, a day trip to Negril, and a $50 drink credit.

"I have travelled the world and nothing compares to the personal touch of [Zimbali Retreats]," says one FlipKey reviewer. "Every conversation, every meal, every beverage, every hike was transformed into a powerful display of love. This was by far the best vacation ever."

This 7.5-acre sustainable farm promises to treat you right every day and every night with solar-powered electricity, natural spring water and organic fruits and vegetables. Get together with your family and friends in a rustic cottage or spacious villa above the trees, each featuring valley views, cable television and a stereo for pumping your songs of freedom.

Choose from vegetarian, seafood, or traditional Jamaican menus prepared by a personal chef in Zimbali's outdoor kitchen. Or, learn to stir it up yourself with a Jamaican cooking class taught over a wood fire. Tour the fertile valley where much of your food is grown, then take a dip in the clear mountain springs where Marley himself bathed in the shade of the bamboo canopy.

None but yourself can free your mind, and this holistic healing centre provides the perfect environment to do so. Consult with Bongo Roach, a Rasta elder and certified herbalist, on organic remedies. Indulge in a natural hydrotherapy massage beneath the nearby waterfall.

Don't worry, be happy in the company of fellow travellers around the evening fire. You will leave renewed, refreshed, and without a doubt that every little thing's gonna be alright.
