Villa Scotch on the Rock on Jamaica is a distinctive island home painted turquoise to match the amazing color of the Caribbean Sea. Nestled in a scenic cove between two of Jamaicas most prestigious hotels, Scotchie,as the villa is affectionately called, was built by a Scottish lord and is now owned by members of the Red Stripe beer family.
Guests will enjoy a prime Ocho Rios location with a wealth of amenities just minutes from the villa. Lively Ocho Rios is nearby, and vacationers staying at Villa Scotch on the Rocks will enjoy preferred rates for amenities at the 5-star Royal Plantation boutique hotel including a private beach, water sports, tennis, a gym and restaurants. Golfers will find three magnificent courses, including Sandals Grande, Sandals Upton and Breezes Runaway Bay. For family excitement, Dolphin Cove and beautiful Dunns River waterfalls are a short drive away.
Villa Scotch on the Rock offers five air-conditioned ensuite bedrooms. Original touches like exterior Victorian fretwork and rich mahogany wood flooring combine with recent renovations like Italian travertine and modern electronics, and furnishings are accented by Jamaican and English antiques. Guests will enjoy the services of a full staff, including a butler, a cook and a laundress. Request meals to be served indoors or outside on the covered verandah with expansive views of the sea. The furnished verandah is also the perfect spot to see flaming island sunsets, preferably with a rum punch in hand. Spend lazy days relaxing at the private pool and beach, and take advantage of two complimentary sea kayaks to explore the shoreline. The over-the-water deck beckons for hours of sunning, swimming and snorkeling using complimentary snorkel gear.
