Named in reference to the colonial era, Fortlands Point villa resides at the site of the original military fortification leading into Discovery Bay. Indeed, the pronounced geography of the landscape sprawling around this magnificent estate remains a testament to the purpose of this once strategic vantage point. Today, Fortlands Point endures as an iconic spot from which to soak in the sights, sounds and smells of the Caribbean Sea, while basking in the Jamaican sun.
Neither work nor workout regime need be sacrificed at Fortlands Point. The villa comes equipped with Wi-Fi, a computer and a fitness center. The grounds offer three private white sand beaches, a swimming pool and alfresco dining areas. Cool off in the gazebo after a sea kayaking expedition or a round of squash at the on-site court. Kayaks, as well as squash and snorkeling gear, are complimentary. Full staff is also provided.
Padded rattan arm chairs and cozy couches fill the interior living areas of Fortlands Point. A formal dining room with a high arched ceiling awaits as the backdrop for many wonderful memories. The kitchen comes with a center island and top of the line appliances.
The seven bedrooms at Fortlands Point can accommodate up to ten adults and four children. Each comes with air conditioning and ceiling fan. The large bedroom on the upper level is particularly breathtaking with its crossed archways that are reminiscent of an Escher painting. The downstairs bedroom has its own verandah and is wheelchair accessible.
Aside from the cozy sumptuousness offered at Fortlands Point, the villa also serves as a spectacular setting for weddings and other special occasions for up to 75 guests. A one week rental is required for events. Nearby attractions include animal encounters at Dolphin Cove, the magical Green Grotto Caves and the historical Columbus Park.

Fortlands Point was incredible! The house, the view, the staff, everything was incredible. Patrick cooked amazing meals, Sean and Gregory were always at our service, providing cocktails for the adults and smoothies and milkshakes for the kids. There is a big lawn for the kids to play football, croquet, etc. Swimming in the sea was also a favorite. This place has the best view by far of all Discovery Bay houses, it's on the point. We will be returning.
Family vacation with 9 adults & 4 children. Except for the weather - more rain than we would have liked - everything was really lovely. Accommodations were spacious, clean and very comfortable. Many spots with stunning views for relaxing, gathering, playing. Every meal was wonderful & the staff were attentive, kind and professional. The snorkeling and kayaking were so fun -we never left the property. We want to return!
It was our 7th year and we love Fortlands's Point better than any othe
Overall, we had a very nice time and enjoyed ourselves. However, we were very disappointed that we were not made aware before renting that the house and beach look directly across Discovery Bay at a huge, working Bauxite mine complete with billowing smoke stacks, not the serene, picturesque scenery we anticipated.There was also incessant booming music blaring from a bar across the bay EVERY night from 11 p.m. until approx. 5 a.m. Patrick, the Chef, went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and his food was amazing. We would have liked for the staff to have asked us every once in a while if we cared for a drink and/or snack while we were at the beach and poolside, rather than having to get them ourselves. We loved having the kayaks and paddle boards at our disposal, but much of the provided snorkel gear leaked from dry rot. The grounds were beautifully kept and we enjoyed the putting green. The property does have a lot of areas for everyone to spread out and find their own space.
