Luxurious 5 Bedroom Villa on Private Beach with Tennis Court

Bedrooms 5
Half Baths1
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

On its own sugary white sand beach lapped by the turquoise waters of Discovery Bay sits the exquisite home Sugar Bay. Interiors are distinguished by elegant custom-designed furniture, color-washed walls, gleaming breadnut floors, and fascinating objets d`art from around the world.

A sweeping staircase curves gracefully through the dramatic living room to a minstrel's gallery and cozy upstairs second sitting area with satellite/DSS television and VCR. Quadraphonic speakers fill the vaulted living room, verandah and pool area with sound.

Salmon-hued Italian tiles, the blue mosaic pool, flower-draped balconies and porches, and textures of terra cotta and stone create a Mediterranean ambiance. From the large verandah, the soft grassy lawn gently slopes 30 feet to the 100-foot private beach.

Two seaside gazebos provide wonderful platforms for heavenly massages and for watching glorious sunsets across the bay.

Home-cooked meals are served on the verandah ~ or guests may opt to dine in the country-French indoor dining room, a quietly elegant space featuring a unique hand-carved sideboard and rushwoven chairs. As a special treat, the staff will plan a torchlight beach party ~ chicken, lobster, tenderloin or fresh fish grilled on the outdoor barbecue.

The seaside gazebo provides a wonderful platform for watching glorious sunsets across the water and dining romantically by candlelight. Star-gazing from this spot is magical.

Water sports are available just a few minutes drive from Sugar Bay. In lively Ocho Rios 25 minutes away are night life, excellent restaurants, shops, open-air craft markets, more water sports, Prospect Plantation Great House, rafting on the Martha Brae, jitney tours of a working plantation and dramatic Dunn's River Falls. Driving time from the Montego Bay airport to Sugar Bay is approximately 55 minutes. Discovery Bay is a pristine aqua jewel on Jamaica's north coast boasting some of the Island's most beautiful private homes. Sugar Bay is one of the best.

If occupancy in excess of 10 guests is approved, a surcharge of $50 per additional guest per night will apply.

Incredible Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent our fifth incredible vacation at Sugar Bay Villa. As in visits past, we were not disappointed! From the initial greeting by awesome staff - Nicole, Peaches, Charm, Bigga and Wayne - to the relaxing days resting in the

gorgeous infinity pool - it is a vacation like no other. The villa is beautiful and its outdoor area overlooking gorgeous Discovery Bay is paradise. The attentiveness of the staff is incomparable to other villas we have stayed. The food, drinks and overall experience is unbelievably wonderful.

We spent a marvelous 7 days at Sugar Bay Villa in Discovery Bay. It was a wonderful and amazing time overall. Upon arrival you are greeted by the heart-warming staff with a fresh towel and some drinks to cool-off. As soon as you step into the house, you are in paradise. The 5 bedroom villa has an open lay-out with a patio that looks out over the infinity pool and ocean. The patio is also adjacent to a bar where Ted, your concierge, will create any drink that you desire! The staff are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. They are all so kind, wonderful, and always fulfill your every need. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are catered and special request are always welcomed. The way the staff looks after you truly feels like you are at a 5 star resort! They are always giving special attention to details that make every dining experience practically perfect. During our week at the villa, we were celebrating my wife’s birthday and the same truly made it amazing for her. They set-up a table under the poolside cabana and surrounded it with flaming tiki torches. The whole atmosphere was incredible and they kept the champagne flowing all night long! My wife and I vacationed with 4 other couples so each had their own room. The rooms were extremely well-kept, spacious, and had wonderful views to wake-up to every morning. Finally, the convenience and comfort of having your own private beach was uncomparable to any vacation we have ever been on. The beach is enclosed in a small Laguna so that there are never any major waves. We enjoyed snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle-boarding daily at the villa. Also, we had a couple that enjoyed playing tennis on the private tennis court that was on the Villa property as well. Overall, our stay was unbelievable and highly recommended to anyone who wants to enjoy a luxurious accommodation in Jamaica.

What an amazing 12 days we spent at Sugar Bay Villa. Beautiful house, grounds and location, but it was the care we received from Joan, Ted, Nichole, Peaches, Charm and Bigger that made the difference.

We chose Sugar Bay because of the gorgeous outdoor spaces and weren't disappointed. Pictures do not do this house justice. The pool is stunningly beautiful, the bay calm and perfect for kayaking and paddle boarding, the beach great for gathering shells and playing in the sand and gentle waves, the hammocks perfect for relaxing with a book or having a wild swing. There are plenty of outdoor seating and living areas which are comfortable and diverse depending on what you'd like to, relax, read, nap, suntan. Though there are two lovely indoor family rooms we found we spent most of our time outside. Even when it rained Ted would roll down the screens so we could stay in the outdoor family room. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all perfect. Gorgeous flowers and arrangements everywhere. No other place on earth can compare with the charm and comfort of Sugar Bay Villa! Imagine the best resort you have ever stayed at without other guests. We felt welcome from the minute we arrived. The staff all strive to meet your every need as efficiently and unobtrusively as possible. The best way to describe the service at Sugar Bay is 'above and beyond'. There were 3 adults and 3 kids in our group. We were all spoiled rotten! The kids are still adjusting to life in the real world after getting used to the level of service at Sugar Bay. Ted met every need our girls had (turning on the hot tub at all hours, serving the girls lunch in bed when they were hiding from the sun, fun walks and activities he'd do with them) and we are adjusting to getting our own drinks again too! Nichole would make the kids anything their hearts desired (amazing pancakes, muffins, sandwiches, Mac and cheese, etc) and made us some of the best meals we've ever had. Nichole is a fantastic chef. Just let her do her thing, she's awesome. Peaches and Charm were more than just housekeeping, they entertained our girls like they would their own kids. Biggar was always working to keep the grounds beautiful and barbecues a mean lobster. It was all the little extras that made our trip so magical and special.

I had a feeling from the first time I spoke to the lovely Joan about booking our time at Sugar Bay that this was going to be one fantastic trip. I wasn't wrong! Thank you! Can't wait to return!

We are just back home in Montreal from a reunion with friends in Jamaica. Our week at the Sugar Bay Villa has been a unique experience. The location on the shore of Discovery Bay, the elegant house, the lovely garden with its pergola, gazebo, infinity pool and sandy beach are a feast for the eye. We enjoyed swimming in the calm water of the bay and admiring the fish, urchins and sea anemones through our goggles.

The staff is excellent, helpful and friendly. Ted, Nicole, Peaches, Charm and Bigga pampered us and served us delicious meals prepared by Nicole (whose secret ingredient is love, she says) at beautifully set tables with fresh floral arrangements.

We have visited some thirty countries throughout the world but have never experienced the level of comfort and relaxed luxury that Sugar Bay Villa has to offer. Thank you for sharing your home, Joanie.

Site enchanteur, maison de rêve, service impeccable.

Jamaican Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently spent a week at the very beautiful Sugar Bay Villa in Discovery Bay, Jamaica. The accommodations were incredible both inside and out. The villa is tastefully decorated, immaculate and comfortable. The staff is incredible and the home hosts a gorgeous infinity pool, oceanfront gazebo ideal for relaxing and late afternoon cocktail hour, and an outdoor covered area for more relaxing. Direct access to Discovery Bay is excellent for snorkeling, swimming, and the staff will arrange for waterskiing and wave runners. Overall a great experience. Also a great location for access to Ocho Rios for Dunns River Falls and Mystic Mountain Bobsled and Zip-lining as well as Dolphin Cove. A definite find! Can't wait to return to this Jamaican paradise!

Dream location for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 11 people experienced a fantastic week to celebrate a family birthday. Nicholas, Nicole, Peaches, Bigga and Charm were wonderful right from the first minute through to our "all too soon" departure. You certainly cannot ask for a better setting, with Discovery Bay right there for swimming, kayaking and snorkeling.It was lovely sitting under the furthest gazebo, enjoying the sea breezes, chilling, reading, dozing, and jumping straight into the crystal clear sea to cool off.

For our dining Nicole discussed what we wanted, and then produce fabulous food for every meal. Breakfast and dinner on the terrace, and lunch at the waterside, the meals were a real highlight, with a lot of great Jamaican food. One night we hosted dinner for around 20 people in total, and the quality of the meal and the service was as excellent as ever.

When our rental car was delivered, Nicholas came out and helped me inspect the car to ensure that everything was in order. When we were due to leave, somehow Nicholas and Bigga were able to fit our luggage in to the 2 cars, and still leave room for the passengers. Just another couple of examples of the great service.

Thanks to Joan and the wonderful staff for an unforgettable week. We hope to be back sometime.
