Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

Nine miles west of Montego Bay is a large private site overlooking perhaps the most glorious view of sea and sky on Jamaica’s renowned north coast. Elegantly perched on eight and a half acres atop this hill is Bambu, a grand six bedroom private villa distinguished by its classic architecture and appreciated by discerning vacationers.

Bambu was designed by architect Robert Hartley in the early 1960's as a unique melding of West Indies architecture and Italian Venetian style. Its Palladian arches, dramatic central pool, Italian sculptures and breathtaking view make it one of the most photographed homes in this collection.

Multiple dining areas take advantage of the spaciousness and vast views from this special property. Breakfast at the river is a marvelous way to start the day. Cocktails on the terrace over the bay and dinner in the gazebo feature one of the most beautiful nighttime light shows in the world.

Multi-million dollar renovations of interiors and grounds have resulted in an impressive face lift of this elegant grande dame. Wireless internet access, Apple television, new marble bathrooms and a state-of-the-art kitchen complement lovely new interiors. Today its modern comforts and infrastructure mesh with Bambu's original Euro charm and glamour. As designer Charles Faudree wrote when it was featured on the cover of Veranda magazine, Bambu is the blending of Old World elegance with New World comforts. Its newest folly is an open-air garden shower and bathtub outside a small hideaway bedroom downhill from the main house with a nine-mile view across Montego Bay.

Notable also are Bambu's sprawling grounds and gardens. Headed by talented Sam, the gardeners have created a lush and lavish tropical paradise, with natural stone pathways that wind through gardens to unexpected terraces for private quiet times.

With handicap access in mind, a separate entrance designed specially for guests in wheel chairs features a ramp to a level entrance to the villa avoiding all stairs. The Bambu pool features a broad four inch deep wheel chair platform as well. This shallow water platform is also a thoughtful, safe pool area for toddlers.

If you have left your pets at home while you're on vacation, be advised that Bambu is home to three affectionate Mastiff pups. At your preference, they may be allowed to roam the grounds and come in to play with the guests or be kept in their large, open-air kennel.

The Tryall Club Membership

A significant amenity for guests in this villa is membership at the excellent Tryall Club. On 2 200 acres, Tryall's golf course is among the most beautiful in the world. Its 18 hillside and seaside fairways have been home to the Johnnie Walker, Mazda and other PGA championship events. The resident pro offers workshops and private lessons. The Tryall tennis club features nine nova cushion courts, some lit for night play, with world class pros on call. All white attire required.

The beach is well planned for parents and children. Have lunch at the beach bar. Work out in the well-equipped gym and compete in the new Usain Bolt Games Room at the Great House (teens love it). Jog the marked trails. Snorkeling, kayaking, hobie cat and sunfish are complimentary. Glass bottom boats, charter fishing, a boat to the reef and any captained craft attract various fees. Enjoy weekly events like complimentary Manager's cocktail party on Mondays, as well as beach barbecues and reggae night beach parties for an additional fee.

On the hill, enjoy the historic Great House for daily 4:00 tea and sweets. Shop at the convenient commissary and chic boutique, and meet for happy hour and snacks at the casual bar. Also at the great house is the new Usain Bolt Games Room open all day and night for ping pong, pool, air hockey, Foosball, shuffleboard, chess and checkers, board games, comfy reclining chairs and high definition television. Do not miss the massive Tryall pool. The Tryall Club is thoughtfully designed to please toddlers, preteens, tweens, moms, dads and everyone from teens to octogenarians.
