Forgo the common hotel stay and take residence in a stunning villa. Jamaica is known for its comfortable and luxurious destination homes that offer privacy and countless upscale amenities. Here are five of which to take note.
Cary Island has its place in history as a Tudor house from the 1930s, appropriately constructed with the dramatic design and décor that makes a Tudor home stand out. The villa can serve as a spacious playground for a small party, but is also large enough for a sizable wedding.
Walking down the 99 steps from the villa to an island of your own is a favorable option as well. There is also a massive seaside pool to relax in, if you wish. Once you have worked up an appetite, savor meals under the gazebo that have been prepared by an experienced chef. This gated villa in Ochos Rios leaves nothing to be desired.
If you are not in the mood to take advantage of water activities, walk around the five acres of the property to take in the sights. Have no worries, guards are available to ensure your safety, and there are seven staff members to keep up the grounds and make your stay especially unforgettable.
Villa Stella at Tryall Club
Villa Stella keeps you close to the action at the world-renowned Tryall Club. Complete with two levels, there are many conveniences, including access to a secluded beach. The staff of five will keep you worry free as you make the most of your time here. You will also have a golf cart made available to you, which is especially fitting at one of the top golfing and luxury destinations in the world.
There is entertainment both indoors and out. Watch a movie on the 8-footprojector in HD as you eat pizza prepared in the wood-burning oven, or head outside for the ultimate in Jacuzzi relaxation.
Islands magazine has called Fortlands Point “one of the best villas in the world.” It is a beachfront villa that caters to guests who desire a getaway that is made for the lifestyles of the rich of and famous. Surrounded by beautiful bodies of water, it was once an old fort that now stands in elegant splendor. Feel free to bring the kids; there are just as many activities for them to take part in here.
Bambu is an architectural delight featuring an infusion of cultural styles. Everyone deserves to experience a lavish vacation and Bambu recognizes this. The villas are pleasing for children and accommodate guests who need a wheelchair-accessible ramp. The gardens have been landscaped to resemble nothing short of Utopia with a refreshing outdoor bathing area as an added bonus.
If you are a dog lover, playing with the Mastiff puppies on the grounds will be a delightful treat. The concept of historic royalty blended with modern amenities makes the villa a top choice.
