Jamaica Luxury Villas & Vacation Rentals

The perfect stay
in Jamaica

Surrounded by crystal-clear blue waters and with a rich culture that is distinctive, welcoming and unique, it’s little wonder Jamaica is a longstanding favourite with stars, VIPs and even royalty. Tropical forests, soft, sandy beaches, towering mountains, and thundering waterfalls abound, transporting you to a Caribbean paradise that captures the soul. With its own soundtrack and a famously laid-back personality, the island is intoxicatingly beautiful. What’s more, the villas in Jamaica are second to none. From magnificent beachfront mansions to characterful tropical hideaways, this is truly the destination with it all.

From a distinctive cultural identity and natural wonders that will take your breath away to unique cuisine and a vivacious approach to life, music, and art, Jamaica is one of those destinations that gets under your skin and entices you back again and again. The welcome is as warm as the Caribbean sunshine, and colours somehow seem more vibrant here.

The food is internationally recognised as a distinctive cuisine in its own right and is a fascinating combination of influences from Africa, Creole cooking, French and European dishes, and a home-grown island menu of flavours. The result is an eclectic experience that could almost overwhelm the first-time visitor, but instead reaches inside and touches your soul. Add perfect beaches and Jamaica’s luxury villas into the mix and you have the trip of a lifetime.

Things you can’t miss
  • Visit the Luminous Lagoon at dusk, a glowing cove that harbours bioluminescent microscopic organisms that glow in the dark.
  • Go river tubing in YS Falls, a gorgeous seven-tiered cascading waterfall and wading pool surrounded by lush jungle forests.
  • Take a horseback ride along the beach, stopping for a dip in the Caribbean Sea.

Best time to go

  • During spring: spring tends to be one of the cooler months in Jamaica, making it ideal if you want to explore in peace and discover a more tranquil side to island life. Up until the start of May, the weather is generally dry and warm with temperatures around 26°C (78°F), and spring is a great time to visit the island.

  • During summer: with temperatures climbing into the low to mid-30s°C (around 95°F) and the sea temperatures warming up to around 30°C (86°F), summer is the right time to come to the island for water sports and beach holidays. The attractions are in full swing, and the nightlife is exciting and vibrant with plenty of music and cultural festivals on offer.

  • During autumn: autumn in Jamaica brings similar temperatures to the rest of the year. There is the chance of a rain shower or two, but these are usually brief and heavy storms are rare. As November starts, the chance of inclement weather diminishes, and the island takes on a new sense of tranquillity under a cloudless blue sky.

  • During winter: during the winter months, the wind swings around to the north, bringing a slight drop in temperature and heralding the start of the dry season. In February, music lovers flock to the island to celebrate the life and music of Bob Marley, and the beaches fill up with families enjoying the pleasures of the ‘Island of Eternal Summer’.

How to get there

Make the journey as memorable as the arrival. Your dedicated Concierge can arrange transportation from the closest airport to your Jamaica villa.

By plane

There are two main airports on the island, Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston and Donald Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay. For light aircraft, there are also smaller airports in Negril and Ocho Rios, as well as a small airport in Kingston that accepts charter flights and private aircraft.

By boat

Jamaica is a major cruise destination and is particularly busy with superyachts and cruise liners during the winter months. Fishing boats provide deep sea sport fishing and coastal tours and are a great way to see a different aspect of the island as well as access diving locations further offshore.

By car

Although car rental is available in Jamaica, the roads are narrow and there are not many north-south routes across the island. To avoid driving on the roads, your dedicated concierge can arrange private transportation to your villa in Jamaica. Otherwise, taxis, known as ‘Route Taxis’, are plentiful. Look for licensed taxis that are marked by a ‘taxi’ sign spray-painted onto the bumper. If you are driving, bear in mind that in Jamaica you drive on the left.

Local tips

  • Convert some money into local currency on arrival, as you will need some smaller bills or coins for souvenir shopping and tipping.
  • Most tap water in Jamaica is safe to drink, but to be on the safe side, it is best to stick with bottled water.
  • Avoid getting into taxis without red number plates as these are unlicensed, instead ask your concierge to organise a dedicated driver during your stay.
