TREASURE BEACH, Jamaica -- The island's funkiest boutique resort added four new villas to its repertoire of 15 cottages by the sea.

Jake's, here on the Southwest Coast, opened Seapuss 3 and Octopussy 1, 2 and 3.

Seapuss is on the water with open-air windows and a back deck built over the sea. Each of the Octopussy villas are styled like a Moroccan palace with a rooftop deck, a retractable canopy, and alfresco showers.

Jake's is part of the Island Outpost collection of small hotels located in Jamaica, the Bahamas, Utah and South Beach.
