Say Hello To The Hews

Born and raised in post-colonial Jamaica, Brian and Jennifer Hew came of age in an era when the island nation was a jewel of the Commonwealth; its sultry, tropical ambiance steeped in British and Caribbean heritage. The children of generations-old local families; they met in grade school when Brian would save his allowance to buy Jennifer sweets. They’ve been together ever since.

A lush private island sanctuary that evoked their treasured island heritage, the Hews created an extraordinary environment far beyond the bustle of the modern world, where they could enjoy and share the idyllic tropical lifestyle they’d grown up with. Kamalame, which launched in 1996 with just three beach houses and the Great House, is now in its third decade, with Kimberly Hew running reservations while brother David, and his husband Michael King, handling operations - all bringing their own remarkable, next generation, flair to Kamalame.

Pooling their panache, they’ve reimagined the island’s cuilinary program, enhanced the wine and spirits lists, refreshed décor, guided fresh directions in interiors and architecture, and introduced social and culinary events that draw a stylish crowd over from Nassau. Praised for its relaxed chic, natural charm, and authentic island lifestyle, Kamalame remains the very antithesis of the corporate luxury hotel. Here, a bikini and sarong count as dressed for dinner, every guest is treated as family, and the atmosphere is as much gracious vibe (and chilled rose…) as spectacular setting.

A dose of Tulum bohemia, a dash of Harbor Island flair, Kamalame is a dreamy island retreat and an incredibly personal testament to one family’s love for the Bahamas.
