In many ways, the opulence and comfort found at Malatai villa come together to form an archetypal Jamaican beachside villa in Ocho Rios. The deck area of the pristine kidney shaped swimming pool leads directly to your own swath of private white sand beach. Whether you are enjoying a rally on the private night lit tennis court or returning from a day trip to nearby Dunn’s River Falls or the famed James Bond Beach, you are sure to breathe easy while relaxing at Malatai.

The spacious family room and study contains a large screen TV and cable, as well as a large library of CDs and DVDs, Wi-Fi access, computer and board games. Your music is piped through the living and dining rooms, patio, pool and hot tub areas. The villa also includes a well-equipped fitness center, sea kayaks, snorkeling equipment and a billiards table. Full staff, including chef, is provided.

Attention to design details has been a central contribution to Malatai’s resplendent atmosphere. The exquisite Jerusalem stone floors, hardwood bedroom floors and cabinetry, as well as the granite countertops and marble bathrooms provide an old world ambiance amid the bountiful colors of the vibrant exterior foliage and turquoise sea. The views from the outdoor dining areas are captivating, while the formal dining room provides an elegant setting for special announcements.

Malatai’s six stately bedrooms with brilliant ocean views accommodate up to sixteen guests. The bedroom containing three wooden bunk beds is perfect for children. All bedrooms include en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, flat screen TV with cable and access to private terraces or balconies. Rest easy with nothing but the sound of the ocean waves as your soundtrack.

The nearby outdoor museum Columbus Park offers the opportunity to learn about the Spanish Colonial era through the artifacts on display. Perhaps you will take a boat trip or visit the friendly inhabitants of Dolphin Cove. However you choose to spend your time in Jamaica, you will cherish the familiar feelings of coming back to Malatai.
