Kai Kala villa in Ocho Rios is a resplendent tropical luxury destination set on a two acre property of lush Jamaican fruit trees and flowers set on a majestic cliff overlooking the sea. This veritable tropical hamlet is composed of four separate cottages—Kai Kala, Hideaway Cottage, Bamboo Cottage and Sea View—that together comprise ten bedrooms. Close to restaurants and town, you are also well situated for day excursions to a number of local attractions.
The salt water pool has blue mosaic tiles and a hot tub with jets. On the tiled deck there are lounge chairs, umbrellas and floats for your enjoyment. The verandah has a wrought iron table with a seating capacity of ten for outdoor dining. The property features an on-site private, night lit tennis court and hot tub with jets. Internet access, baby gear and a well equipped kitchen are also provided.
On entering the main villa you cross over a Perspex bridge with a stream and waterfall filled with golden koi and surrounded by vegetation. The bar opens onto both the living room and verandah with original seating—four hands carved of wood. High windows open onto a water feature for your added pleasure. The dining room also overlooks the water feature cascading outside the row of windows, leading to the kitchen. Each of the four cottages boast their own particular advantages and the professional staff will be happy to make sure that all your specific requests are met.
The total of ten bedrooms that comprise this dream hamlet accommodate up to twenty guests. Each bedroom offers its own breathtaking sea views and decorative themes. All bedrooms include en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, ceiling fans and flat screen TVs with cable. Wooden accents in each room add warmth and charm.
Recommendations for nearby outings include scaling the many levels at Dunn’s River Falls or taking a stroll at the notorious James Bond Beach. You could also travel to the outdoor museum Columbus Park in Discovery Bay where you can learn about the Spanish colonial era through the artifacts on exhibition. Whatever you decide to do in Jamaica, you will cherish returning to this resplendent spot right by the turquoise sea!
“Relaxing Stay, Nice Villa, But Not One of Our Best Trips”
Left on 01/04/2014 for a stay in January 2014 | MarkReviewed Jan 4, 2014Stayed Jan 2014
While the main villa and cottages were lovely and generally well maintained, the overall bedroom capacity was not large enough for 20 people. Although, technically, there were beds for 20, it is not always possible to put 2 people in a bed which made things somewhat uncomfortable in the beginning of our stay when our whole group was together. Also, in the 2 bedroom cottage, there was a musty smell throughout our stay and some sort of plumbing problem towards the end of the trip that created a horrible sewer smell in the master bathroom. The wireless internet connection was initially very bad, but once we mentioned the problem to Jordie, the situation was resolved. Pool and common areas were well furnished and comfortable. The hot tub didn't work very well and took several hours to heat up...some days it would not heat at all. The staff was very pleasant and eager to please, but not always that knowledgeable, leaving us to search for things to do online and book them ourselves.
