Jamaica's popularity rests not just on its beaches, beautiful though they are, wall-to-wall sunshine, Caribbean cuisine, and unique traditions all help to make it one of the most popular vacation spots in the world. In many ways, the island is the cultural heart of the Caribbean, and visitors are rewarded with colour, culture and fun - music is all around and the poetry of Patois resounds in the streets.
Between the famous capital, Kingston, in the south and the holiday playground of Montego Bay in the north, the landscape of Jamaica is incredibly beautiful - moving from craggy mountains and rainforests sheltering tumbling waterfalls to carpets of exotic flowers and miles of white sands. Our luxury villas in Jamaica can be found amidst this famously unbridled beauty.
Today, largely unspoilt, the North Coast of the island remains the choice for many celebrity second homes - an intoxicating mix of emerald and blue waters edged in sandy white beaches with the backdrop of a spectacularly mountainous interior. Our luxury villas in Jamaica, hotels and cottages can be found amidst this famously unbridled beauty. GoldenEye, now a superb coastal retreat and the Tryall Club at Montego Bay, have some of the most spectacular scenery in the Caribbean.
Jamaica has a vibrant and colourful culture and, as well as the tropical climate, it is famous for its unique Jamaican cuisine. Succulent tropical fruits are in abundance, as well as delicious seafood and spicy meat dishes, whilst on holiday it’s certainly worth sampling the national dish of Jamaica, ackee and saltfish. With their own private pools and tropical gardens, many of our luxury villas in Jamaica also come fully staffed, leaving you to relax and enjoy the nightlife.
Jamaica Luxury Resorts
The island has welcomed visitors from Columbus to Coward and, of course, Fleming. In the 1940s, Ian Fleming and Noel Coward fell in love with the North Coast. Coward bought an old buccaneer's hideaway belonging to Captain Morgan, Fleming purchased a donkey race track and 15 acres of land overlooking a spectacular little cove and reef, where he built the luxury resort GoldenEye. A playground for luxury holidays, Jamaica is home to some for the finest resort hotels. Half Moon Bay, set on two miles of beach, has been the choice of royalty and presidents over the years, whereas families will feel right at home at Round Hill in Montego Bay.

The Best Time to Visit Jamaica
Like all Caribbean islands, winter is the best time to plan a Jamaican vacation, with average temperatures reaching 28°C from November through until June.
The famous Jamaican nightlife is all around at the beach bars and lively restaurants, but if it’s something quieter you prefer, enjoy cocktails at sunset at your own luxury villa.
