Located on beautiful Discovery Bay, Amanoka is one of the largest and most stunning villas in this collection. From the spacious veranda and pool, a barefoot stroll leads down a soft lawn to the 70' white sand beach, clear turquoise water and waterfront gazebo with suspended canvas swings.
True to its name, Amanoka is a 'peaceful home' of exquisite design and restful ambiance. Quiet interiors are complementary textures of teak, bamboo and stone from Jamaica, China and Indonesia. Delicate orchids accessorize every room and bath. Meandering lily ponds, fountains and gardens and more orchids grace the exterior.
The Amanoka compound consists of the main villa and the annex linked by a landscaped walkway through an interior courtyard.
Each day begins with fresh squeezed orange juice and fresh ground blue mountain coffee, fruit, bagels and muffins on the veranda buffet followed by full breakfast when all guests are ready. Extraordinary lunches and memorable candlelight dinners are served on the alfresco veranda or waterfront deck. Cocktail hour canapes and hors d'oeuvres are offered each evening around the veranda bar. The chef will also plan a torchlight beach party with chicken, chops, steaks, fresh fish or lobster served sizzling from the outdoor coal grill.
Unique to Amanoka is its floating spa in a tropical pavilion. The spa sits on a landscaped lily pond bordered by soothing waterfalls. Spa treatments by holistic specialists are available for various fees. Adjacent to the spa is the air-conditioned gym with Precor Elliptical, treadmill, free weights, fitness DVD's, balls, mats and music. Just across the lane is Amanoka's own Novacrylic surface tennis court, lit for night play. Racquets are provided. Amanoka is a virtual resort within itself.
Kayaks, sailfish and snorkel gear are complimentary. More water sports are available just a few minutes drive around the bay. In lively Ocho Rios 30 minutes from Amanoka are night life, restaurants, shops, open air craft markets, more water sports, rafting, jitney tours of a working plantation and dramatic Dunn's River Falls. Driving time from the Montego Bay airport to Amanoka is approximately 60 minutes, well worth the drive along a gorgeous seascape. The eastern shore of Discovery Bay with its lovely villas and cottages is colloquially known as 'the Riviera', one of Jamaica's treasures.
