Milk River Hotel & Spa (Near by Farquhar Beach) is based South of Clarendon Parish. The Hotel is built against a limestone cliff overlooking the Milk River tiles baths - a co ntinuous flow of lukewarm mineral water.

The town of Milk River is associated both with the river of the same name and the mineral spring also found in the area. The river itself is a main source of the water that irrigates the vast agricultural regions of the Clarendon plains, but is largely unnavigable and infested with crocodiles. Milk River Bath contains some of the most radioactive waters in the world. On average, the waters here are a consistent 90 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year and contain high levels of Magnesium, Calcium, Sulphate and natural Chloride.

The waters are reputed to cure numerous ailments including Rheumatism, Gout, Neuralgia and Lumbago. The waters have radioactivity of 16m curries per litre.

According to legend, the baths were first discovered by a slave w ho worked for Jonathan Ludford. Mr Ludford had beaten the slave severely so the slave went to hide in the woods and bathed in a salty natural spring which he found. The slave's wounds were rapidly healed, he then returned to Mr Ludford who was so shocked at the recovery that he made a deal to never punish the slave again if he shared the secret of the spring's location.

The spring was used privately by Mr Ludford until his death when he willed it to the Jamaican Government. In 1974 public baths were constructed here, they have been open to the public ever since.

Milk River Hotel & Spa offers Single, Double & Triple Occupancy (air conditioned) rooms. There is also a cocktail bar and restaurant. Rental / Hire of swimming pool & Conference Rooms is also available for all occasions such as weddings, christenings, graduations and birthdays.

I visited MR over 47 years ago so it was a delight returning. I enjoyed every moment. The cost per night was very reasonable, the room fairly comfortable, meals quite tasty, the workers pleasant, but relaxing in the warm, mineral water was the best you'll ever experience.
I'm encouraging my readers to make use of this awesome gift God has blessed us with, which is the best mineral waters in the world.
I'll be returning soon.
