Fortlands Point on Discovery Bay - Find Traditional Jamaica here
Named in reference to the colonial era, Fortlands Point villa resides at the site of the original military fortification leading into Discovery Bay. Indeed, the pronounced geography of the landscape sprawling around this magnificent estate remains a testament to the purpose of this once strategic vantage point. Today, Fortlands Point endures as an iconic spot from which to soak in the sights, sounds and smells of the Caribbean Sea, while basking in the Jamaican sun.
Neither work nor workout regime need be sacrificed at Fortlands Point. The villa comes equipped with Wi-Fi, a computer and a fitness center. The grounds offer three private white sand beaches, a swimming pool and alfresco dining areas. Cool off in the gazebo after a sea kayaking expedition or a round of squash at the on-site court. Kayaks, as well as squash and snorkeling gear, are complimentary. Full staff is also provided.
Padded rattan arm chairs and cozy couches fill the interior living areas of Fortlands Point. A formal dining room with a high arched ceiling awaits as the backdrop for many wonderful memories. The kitchen comes with a center island and top of the line appliances.
The seven bedrooms at Fortlands Point can accommodate up to ten adults and four children. Each comes with air conditioning and ceiling fan. The large bedroom on the upper level is particularly breathtaking with its crossed archways that are reminiscent of an Escher painting. The downstairs bedroom has its own verandah and is wheelchair accessible.
Aside from the cozy sumptuousness offered at Fortlands Point, the villa also serves as a spectacular setting for weddings and other special occasions for up to 75 guests. A one week rental is required for events. Nearby attractions include animal encounters at Dolphin Cove, the magical Green Grotto Caves and the historical Columbus Park.

“I recommend Levi & Luxuryretreats to my best friends and family”

I don\'t have the time to write a lengthy review, but the 6 adults and 8 children that enjoyed this fabulous villa vacation with me, had the time of their lives. The private beach, the splendid layout of the house, the proximity to all the amenities from the living quarters was the greatest mix of paradise and luxury. The staff was so attentive the entire time. The chef cooked fantastic, homestyle meals and made everyone happy at mealtime. The grounds are immaculately maintained and pristine always. There are so many little private areas on the property where you can enjoy peace and tranquility while reading or relaxing while listening to the ocean lap against the coral shore. Snorkel, kayak, spearfish, drink, drink, eat, swim relax and did I say relax?? Great time for any family. Highly recommend. Ask for Levi, the man KNOWS his villa. I\'ve been renting from luxuryretreats.com and using Levi for many years (6 or so) and every experience has been better than the one before. - Roger P., New York, USA

Our family had an amazing time at Fortlands Point. From the location to the villa to the staff, we did not want to leave! The pool and beach combo had something for everyone. The beach was calm and very kid friendly. Having the staff was wonderful. Anything you could want they made possible. We even had a reggae band perform at the house our last night! The food was wonderful. The weather was beautiful. The views from the property amazing. We will definitely be back! - Melissa G., Wisconsin, USA
“A staffed villa is the perfect choice for a family vacation!”

Fortlands Point is a magnificent villa on a spectacular piece of land. We thought it was the nicest property on Discovery Bay. The open air sitting area with bar was our favorite place to gather. The staff couldn\'t have been more wonderful. It was terrific to be able to relax and enjoy each other without having to think about meals or cleaning or laundry. This was our first experience with a staffed villa, and we loved it! The water is lovely and beautifully clear. The only negative I can think of has to do with location. Because the villa is between major tourist cities, it is quite a long drive to get to various activities that our group was interested in pursuing: Mystic Mountain, Dunns River Falls, tubing rivers, Dolphin Encounter, really good golf, etc. In all, however, we were extremely satisfied with our choice of Fortlands Point, and we had a terrific vacation! - Al G., Texas, USA
