Owner's Villa ...A Private Haven

For the ultimate in privacy and luxury, the Owner's Villa was designed with every detail in mind to run smoothly and independently of the remaining property. In addition to a breathtaking 330 degree view of Montego Bay, the ocean and the mountains, the Master Suite has its own infinity-edge swimming pool, dining room, kitchen, bedroom, large dual indoor/outdoor shower, waterfall, sundeck and elegant glass dining table for intimate dinners. The privacy gate located at the bottom of the beautifully landscaped walkway up to the Owner's Villa provides guests staying in the Master Suite with a '"Do not Disturb" signal. Staff is aware that when the gate is closed, they must not disturb the guests. As independent and self-sufficient as the Owner's Villa is, it is never rented to parties other than the same group renting the balance of the villa

The Head Chef is one of Silent Waters’ greatest prizes. From his state-of-the-art commercial kitchen and grill, he creates a repertoire of artistically presented Continental, Nouveau and Caribbean cuisine. The dining pavilion is located in a wraparound reflecting pool and has a 330-degree view of Montego Bay and the sea as well as the exquisitely landscaped grounds. The dining table is a rare rainbow-colored 15-foot slab of Brazilian Bahian granite. Seated dinners here can accommodate 16 guests.

For more casual dining, the Gazebo commands a 360-degree view and can accommodate nine guests for seated meals. A spacious bar and entertainment area around the pool enable hosting of an intimate cocktail party … seated dinner for 54 guests … or a gala al fresco cocktail party for 150 guests or more. Event costs vary depending on menu and guest count.

Fitness

On one of the highest plateaus overlooking most of the property is the “world class designed” private tennis court built by the Jamaican Davis Cup Pro, Richard Russell. It is constructed of DecaTurf, the multi-layer cushioned surface of all of the U.S. Open tennis courts and is lit for night play. The viewing pavilion has comfortable seating and a granite wet bar and fridge stocked with cold drinks.  Rackets are available for the guests. For the tennis aficionado, the court’s design and views are unmatchable. From this spot, steps lead to the Silent Waters lighted helicopter pad on the property’s highest elevation.
