Makana is one of the most glamorous private villas on the precious strip of land that borders Discovery Bay.

Makana on the Beach Vacation Rental

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. Each week, the talented Makana chef can prepare 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.

Jamaica Travel Guide

Out of Many, One People

One of the Caribbean’s most popular villa destinations, Jamaica has something for everyone and every occasion. Many venture to Jamaica to tan and relax on the breathtaking beaches, while others come to enjoy the plethora of activities. Avid snorkelers and scuba divers can discover the beautiful coral reefs and exotic marine life. Coffee lovers will take pleasure in the delicious home-grown coffee from the famous Jamaican Blue Mountains, which are also ideal for hiking and horseback riding. Sightseers will want to climb the world-famous 600-foot-high Dunn's River Falls, and bird-lovers will enjoy the Rocklands Feeding Station, home to Jamaica’s 27 native species. Those who want to see beautiful sunsets should partake in the Jamaican tradition and head over to the famous Rick’s Cafe in Negril, where visitors will not only see magnificent sunset views, but also watch brave cliff-jumpers dive into the crystal-clear water.

A villa vacation in Jamaica is unique in that many of our villas come with a full staff (chef, butler, housekeeper and laundress) included. The friendly staff will treat you with their “No problem, mon” service, where everything you desire is at your beck and call.
