With its warm, exuberant personality and spellbinding scenery, Jamaica offers so much to see and do, whether adventure-filled activities or chilling out by your private pool rank high on your wish list. The island also has a wonderful assortment of places to stay, including luxury villas.
Big and small for every party size, our selected ones are located at resorts with all kinds of facilities on tap – the colonial-style villas at Round Hill Montego Bay, for instance. Exuding an elegant air of yesteryear, no two are alike. Some are sophisticated, others charming, as they sit amid tropical foliage catching glimpses of the sea. Rise and shine over breakfast on your terrace, prepared just for you by cook, then relax by your private pool – most villas have them – or wander down to the gently shelving sands. Factor in torch-lit beach dining, a beachfront spa, tennis centre and a kids’ club, too – the resort is a sanctuary of good taste.
Another option is a luxury villa at Half Moon, a sprawling resort offering a collection of grand, architecturally impressive residences, sleeping up to fourteen guests. They’re ideal for the larger party, with access to a host of amenities and activities, including a choice of restaurants and bars, championship golf course and academy, a world-class spa, children’s village and the chance to enjoy amazing encounters with dolphins at Dolphin Lagoon. Alternatively, bring out your creative side and experience barefoot luxury at The Fleming Villa at GoldenEye. An idyllic hideaway on a private beach, it’s where Ian Fleming wrote every single James Bond novel. And the name of the master suite? 007, of course!
