Jamaica Family Retreats & Family Reunions
Everyday life is not often conducive to family togetherness: There are the responsibilities, and the extra-curriculars, and the daily trudge to work and school – the packed schedules that keep you apart, more often than you’re together.
And when it comes to your extended family – to your own parents and siblings, and their growing families, who are scattered across the map – it’s even harder to find the time for good, old-fashioned quality togetherness.
That’s why, when the family vacation finally rolls around, it’s so important to really enjoy it. To make the most of the time you have together. To relax and play, to laugh and catch up. To enjoy every second of your Jamaican vacation, and your time as a family.
An Ocean-View Retreat for Families
Our luxurious, airy Jamaican rental villa is the essence of island living and the perfect getaway for large families, group retreats or wedding parties. Your home-away-from-home boasts large, open common spaces for time together, as well as secluded and distant bedrooms to retreat to privacy, when needed.
Our home offers five spacious bedrooms, including a ground-floor bedroom perfect for older guests or family members with mobility problems. Even better, there’s no competing for the “best” suite: Each bedroom opens onto its own balcony, terrace or verandah, and three of the bedrooms have attached ensuite bathrooms. (Check out the entire floor plan.)
Spend family time splashing in the pristine private swimming pool, going head-to-head in the game room, strolling our private beach, or lounging on the expansive pool deck, which offers a stunning ocean view. Our luxury villa is the epitome of excellence and truly one of the most striking vacation homes in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
Fun for the Whole Family
Villa Serenity is located just outside of Ocho Rios, a paradise on Jamaica’s North Shore, where the sun’s almost always shining and the mercury hovers around 80ºF (27º C).
There’s a reason why Travel & Leisure has dubbed our north coast “the Jamaican Riviera:” This is a place of spectacular beaches and lush landscapes, of myriad activities and exclusive villas steeped in luxury. You’re never far from the aquamarine ocean and the powdery beach, or from restaurants and nightlife, art galleries and souvenir shopping.
Within minutes of our villa, your whole family, from tiny travelers to seasoned seniors, will delight in a variety of activities (and our private concierge will be happy to book them on your behalf), among them:
- Horseback Riding
- Snorkeling and Scuba Diving
- Waterfall Adventures
- Swimming with the Dolphins
- Catamaran Cruising
Family Meals, Jamaica-Style
Imagine sitting on your ocean-view balcony, surrounded by family. Everyone is smiling; many are laughing. The sun is shining and the weather is perfect. The table is set with a delicious, homemade meal.
A delicious, homemade meal you didn’t have to lift a finger to make. Not one finger.
A stay at Villa Serenity includes many luxuries and perks, but for most of our guests, the favorite is your own private chef. Wayne, our talented chef, will consult with you on your preferences: Set the menu for authentic Jamaican fry chicken and steamed fish, mouthwatering Caribbean crab cakes or coconut shrimp, and other gourmet cuisines from around the world. Whatever you crave.
Of course, Chef Wayne is skilled in whipping up kid-friendly favorites, too, from simple sandwiches to homemade chicken fingers. It’s a gift you give yourself: family vacation (and especially family meals) are more enjoyable when you go an entire week without once hearing “But I don’t WANT to eat it!”
After you’ve developed the week’s menu, Chef Wayne will do all the grocery shopping and cooking. Our housekeeper, Herma, will clean up. You won’t have to do a thing. Now that’s a vacation!

Family vacations are a blast – unless you’re the one planning them. The over-stressed planner has to deal with the logistics, and the transportation, and the meals, and the bedroom arrangements, and the activities, and the everything.
At Villa Serenity, we take the stress out of planning. When you book with us, our villa concierge will quickly get in touch: What do you need? What’s on the wish list? How can we help? We’ll take all the hassle out of planning, both before and during your family retreat, so you can simply relax and enjoy your vacation.
The Villa Serenity Promise
Our firm belief is that a family reunion in Jamaica should be about, well, family. Not about cooking meals for 10, or catching up on the laundry, or worrying about housework, or really, paying any attention at all to the outside world.
When you stay at our ocean-view villa, we take care of everything. Yes, everything. Really! From pre-vacation planning, to family retreat logistics, to airport pickup, to family transportation, to housekeeping and laundry, to tour bookings, to family meals, to spa reservations, and to everything else on your mind, we’re here. We’ll handle it.
You just relax. Have fun. Leave the stress to us.
Don’t wait! Take the first step toward an exclusive (and optional all-inclusive!) family retreat in Jamaica by calling us at (401) 626-6942, or emailing me (Hi! I’m Cavel.) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you!
