Personalize Experience, personal Staff in your very own Luxury private villa

We are often asked this question by travelers looking to  book a vacation in Jamaica. What is the difference between a villa and a resort or hotel?

So I find it necessary to write and outline why as well as using the  testimonial of a former guests.

There are many chain hotels / resorts looking like a string of windowed boxes on the beach with very they little charm, almost no vegetation and very little connection to Jamaican culture.

Resorts/ hotels housekeepers have an average of 25 -50 rooms to clean each day and  If you need a butler you need to pay extra and Personal chef,  or forget about it.

Staying in a Resort/ hotel and need to go off site to explore and experience the Island and its many attractions, you’ll need to pay extra for transportation.
