A Balinese-inspired villa makes jetsetters feel at home in Jamaica

Located in JamaicaÂ’s tranquil Discovery Bay, the seven-bedroom villa haven known as Amanoka is the perfect retreat for discerning vacationers looking for a peaceful escape.

The ownersÂ’ goal for Amanoka to be a place where they and all visitors felt a sense of peace, tranquillity, and renewal during and after their stay has been achieved with gusto. Guests can find serenity at every turn, from the elegant Balinese-inspired architectural details and imported furniture to the manicured grounds filled with exotic, fragrant blooms.

Amenities include an inviting infinity pool and Jacuzzi, a private beach and overwater gazebo, and the on-site Tamansari Spa. There, guests can choose from a selection of facials, massages, and scrubs. Active vacationers will love the villaÂ’s private tennis courts that are lit for night play and a state-of-the-art fitness facility, as well as sea kayaks and snorkeling gear. The indispensable butler can also set up fishing, golf, adventure tours, and more.

Amanoka is ideal for families and larger groups, featuring three bedrooms in the main villa and four in the adjacent annex. All bedrooms feature large ensuite bathrooms, Frette linens and robes, and cable television. A conscientious, meticulously trained seven-member staff works diligently to see to guestsÂ’ needs.

Dining options abound at Amanoka. Chef Nick cooks meals to order, and guests can enjoy his gourmet fare in the dining pavilion, on the deck overlooking the bay, amid the property gardens, or on the beach, where guests often conclude their stay with a bonfire and lobster feast under the stars.

Rentals are available from October to mid-July. A minimum seven-night stay is required in high season, five nights in low season, and 14 nights during Christmas.
