* Makana is one of the most glamorous private villas on the precious strip of land that borders Discovery Bay. The site itself is remarkable: a spacious villa with private tennis court and swimming pool on a sugary white sand beach bordering translucent swimming and kayaking water. The architecture is superb.
Virtually a resort within itself, Makana also includes an air-conditioned gym with powder room and an outdoor shower. An over-the-water gazebo provides a 270-degree view of the mountains, bay and Caribbean Sea and is a splendid venue for lovers of breathtaking sunsets.
Spa specialists available on-call for massages/treatments that can be set up in bedrooms, balconies or in the garden (for various charges).
Interiors are stylish and comfortable. The Great Room opens to a spacious verandah and bar. Home-cooked meals are served on the al fresco dining terrace overlooking the lawn, garden, private pool, beach and blue bay.
Child friendly, Makana's design addresses the accommodation of family units. Excellent Jamaican nannies are available on request.
The state-of-the-art kitchen includes a commercial oven, microwave and gas grill. The talented Makana chef treats guests each week to barbecues of steaks, chicken, shrimp, pork and lobster fired on the outdoor grill.
Driving time from the Montego Bay airport to Makana is approximately 60 minutes. Discovery Bay is an incredible turquoise body of water that has attracted some of Jamaica’s most visionary homeowners. Makana has raised the bar.
