Jamaican villas in the Caribbean are popular today for exotic and luxurious exotic beaches vacations. But that was not the case about 60 years ago, when most people stayed in hotels. But when the villa concept became popular in the 1950s, it quickly became a popular trend and is now a regulated industry and a large part of the local economy.
Jamaica villas are available for all types of travelers, from cheap villas for budget tour groups to luxury villas for those in need of a luxury vacation. Wealthy tourists often use some of these mansion-like villas for extended stays or winter vacations. From a private beach to a helipad, this villa can have it all.
Each villa is well equipped and a butler, chef and driver will arrive by car. It is normal for housekeeping to take care of all the housework. For families with children who need supervision, a babysitter will be provided if needed.
For breakfast, the chef can serve anything from a full southern breakfast with bacon, ham and eggs. Or for the kids a continental breakfast with fresh orange juice, pancakes, muffins, Belgian waffles or even macaroni and cheese. For lunch and dinner, ask the chef to prepare all kinds of exotic Caribbean dishes using local produce and fresh seafood, including narcissus chicken, curried goat and coconut shrimp.
In the evening, guests can enjoy dinner with a great view outside and nice weather. The whole day can be spent lounging by the pool or terrace and bringing the butler to the pool for long cold drinks. Enjoy ocean views, pristine white sand beaches and soak up the sun.
Those looking to go sightseeing or enjoy nearby entertainment and activities can head to the nearby resort towns. Speaking of which, travelers should choose a villa in one of the tourist resort towns. The most famous of these is Montego Bay, which is Jamaica’s second largest city and harbor, not to mention the biggest tourist attraction.
A large number of villas can be rented within half an hour of Montego Bay. Guests can enjoy everything from water sports to golf, as well as visit ancient churches and art galleries. Other popular destinations include Negril, Ocho Rios and Discovery Bay. Obviously it’s hard to recommend one over the other in Travel blogs, but with most visitors coming back again for their annual holidays, it’s really not a big deal.
Think a hilltop villa overlooking Montego Bay and the mountains, with lush gardens and swaying palm trees providing cover for an outdoor pool. There will be a sun terrace and a patio with a barbecue grill. A separate room is arranged for employees.
4 to 6 guests can expect at least two bedroom suites with separate living areas and bathrooms. For larger groups, 6-7 bedroom Jamaican villas spread over two to three floors are widely available. Don’t forget to ask about the airport transfer as it is usually included in the price.
