The property which Jungle Bay sits upon is called Morne Acouma. It has a rich history and today still features interesting artifacts located near the spa. In the late 1800’s Morne Acouma was a famous lime plantation. Lauchlan Rose in the UK devised a method for preserving juice without alcohol and so he invented the world’s first concentrated fruit drink patented in 1867. During that time all merchant ships were required to travel with lemon or lime on board and thus Rose’s Lime Cordial was an important commodity which still lives on today as a refreshing beverage. The lime would be harvested from Morna Acouma, placed in buckets then travel down a series of pulley systems (in essence a zip line) to the waterfront below in Soufriere Bay where merchant ships would take the citrus fruit to London, England. When you visit Jungle Bay we invite you to stop and visit this fascinating heritage site and afterwards enjoy some refreshing fresh lime juice in the Pavillion Restaurant.
