In many ways, the opulence and comfort found at Malatai villa come together to form an archetypal Jamaican beachside villa in Ocho Rios. The deck area of the pristine kidney shaped swimming pool leads directly to your own swath of private white sand beach. Whether you are enjoying a rally on the private night lit tennis court or returning from a day trip to nearby Dunn’s River Falls or the famed James Bond Beach, you are sure to breathe easy while relaxing at Malatai.
The spacious family room and study contains a large screen TV and cable, as well as a large library of CDs and DVDs, Wi-Fi access, computer and board games. Your music is piped through the living and dining rooms, patio, pool and hot tub areas. The villa also includes a well-equipped fitness center, sea kayaks, snorkeling equipment and a billiards table. Full staff, including chef, is provided.
Attention to design details has been a central contribution to Malatai’s resplendent atmosphere. The exquisite Jerusalem stone floors, hardwood bedroom floors and cabinetry, as well as the granite countertops and marble bathrooms provide an old world ambiance amid the bountiful colors of the vibrant exterior foliage and turquoise sea. The views from the outdoor dining areas are captivating, while the formal dining room provides an elegant setting for special announcements.
Malatai’s six stately bedrooms with brilliant ocean views accommodate up to sixteen guests. The bedroom containing three wooden bunk beds is perfect for children. All bedrooms include en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, flat screen TV with cable and access to private terraces or balconies. Rest easy with nothing but the sound of the ocean waves as your soundtrack.
The nearby outdoor museum Columbus Park offers the opportunity to learn about the Spanish Colonial era through the artifacts on display. Perhaps you will take a boat trip or visit the friendly inhabitants of Dolphin Cove. However you choose to spend your time in Jamaica, you will cherish the familiar feelings of coming back to Malatai.

We had an amazing time at Malatai. The villa was perfect and fit all our needs. We were able to hang out by the pool all day and swim in the ocean. The villa set up allowed you to be outside the whole trip. The bedrooms were very nice. The staff was top notch. From the welcome drinks to saying good bye, we truly enjoyed them. Alton the chief made wonderful meals. He consulted with us on what we liked to eat and he every meal he made was delicious. The maids did a great job keeping the house and bedrooms clean. Kenroy, the butler was very personable and make great drinks the whole week. Devar kept the grounds clean, while Dwayne was there at night to keep everyone safe. Truly a great vacation. Worth every penny.
“Fantastic Family Christmas Celebration at Malatai.”

We loved Malatai...the house was perfect for our group of 12 (ages 2 to 80). A remarkable house and a remarkable house staff. We felt welcome and pampered from the minute we arrived until our final hugs goodbye. There were plenty of activities for all from snorkeling to kayaking to tennis to pool. And the meals were memorable. My only request is for some Malatai recipes! The house was large enough for all of us to have alone space\" if wanted or for all of us to dine together at each meal. We have wonderful memories of a steel band and roasting marshmallows on the beach. We highly recommend this property.\" - Pat Y., Florida, USA

Unbelievable beauty, impeccable service, and incredible experience.....Malatai exceeded all expectations from the time we first walked in and saw the villa, pool, beach, and the awesome view until our last hour with the staff where we hugged and cried and were sad to leave such a wonderful place and great people...The attention to details on the property were overwhelming (kudos to the owners), nothing was wrong or broke, the staff prepared 3 delightful meals per day and we were treated with the utmost respect the entire time at the villa. - Rob G., Texas, USA
