Villa Casa della Palme, Jamaica
You enter on the third floor of a dramatic skylit atrium and work your way down marble steps that curve around an indoor garden decorated with fountains, cascades, whimsical statuary and a koi pond. The gallery encircling the third floor is given over to the four guest rooms; the main floor is dominated by an indoor sitting area and dining alcove. Double-height French doors lead to a U-shaped, rattan-furnished veranda with a second dining table outdoors. Flowering terraces step down to a red-tiled deck with swimming pool and hot tub. It’s all very grand, very airy and awash in light, with expansive views of coastline and sea. But what makes Casa delle Palme especially appealing (apart from the rate) is the wealth of nooks where snoozers or readers or tea-sippers can slip off for a few moments of solitude. My favorites: a shrub-shrouded terrace between the veranda and the pool, a club-like library/TV room, a patio table beneath the white pergola beside the hot tub. After dark, the villa is pure magic, a mini sound-and-light show of chandeliers, blinking candles and plinking fountains. Ask Paulette, the villa’s housekeeper/cook, to prepare something typically Jamaican for dinner and you have the makings of very contented evenings. Casa delle Palme is nestled into the hills above the Half Moon Golf Course, about 12 minutes from Montego Bay airport. Day passes available to Half Moon resort and its beaches.
