Roaring Pavilion Villa is perhaps the most luxurious and beautiful villa in Jamaica. The property has been totally renovated in a multi million dollar project that was completed in early 2011. Roaring Pavilion is located
on a private beachfront estate where the Roaring River meets the Caribbean
Sea just a few minutes outside of
Ocho Rios. The villa’s beach is known as James Bond Beach, the
location for the classic scene from Dr. No where Sean Connery greeted
Ursula Andress emerging from the surf.
The Roaring Pavilion Villa is the only property of its kind to offer an on-site spa facility with a full-time spa attendant. Unlimited spa services and steam room are on site in the state-of-the-art indoor/outdoor salon privately located next to the river. Highly trained technicans offer a varied menu, the newest and most in demand being oxygen and anti-aging treatments. Spa services are available all days, all hours at no additional charge.
The 8,000 square-foot property is lavishly appointed and offers a staff of nine catering to every guest’s need. It has been deemed the most beautiful and luxurious villa in the Caribbean, and has played to host to many international celebrities from the worlds of film, television and music. Highlights of the property are many, the focal point being the open air Pavilion, reached via an interior walkway over a meandering reflecting pool. The Pavilion offers a dramatic ocean view with steps leading to the villa’s lagoon-style swimming pool. The layout offers a total of three living areas including a den/entertainment room furnished with a large screen cable television, Apple computer with wireless internet, and an extensive collection of books, videos, and games. Four distinctive master suites are available, each with its own en suite marble bath.
Roaring Pavilion Villa and Spa has been built and furnished with an international flair. Interior walls are of Barbadian coral stone and floors of French terra-cotta tile. Furnishings, art work, fabrics and other design elements collected from around the world are located throughout the property. The living room features Donghia furnishings and an array of custom fabrics are utilized in upholstery, draperies and other household furnishings.
Roaring Pavilion's focus on wellness has led to a complete overhaul of its workout and spa facilities and services. The fitness center now features the very latest Cybex cardio equipment and weight-training machines. The private spa has an extensive treatment menu, making use of local botanicals grown nearby and on the villa grounds. Guests can also take advantage of a patented electromagnetic anti-aging and age-reversal oxygenation system by famed esthetician, Mariam Moldes. The new spa and gym includes an air-conditioned workout studio by
the river with state of the art cardio and weight training equipment,
a terrace for yoga and a fabulous new indoor treatment room for the
spa. Part of the addition to the spa is a new steam room, rain shower
and a luxurious nine-jet hydrotherapy unit to pamper you.
Roaring Pavilion boasts a full-time staff. The staff provides every service imaginable, from individual culinary requests to the meticulous attentions of a butler, to complimentary, professionally managed laundry. Of particular note is chef Johanna Mitchell, whose culinary delights include intricate continental dishes and dazzling local specialties with the freshest market ingredients. Twenty-four hour room service is also available at this one of a kind retreat. All service is provided seamlessly and discreetly, with guests only charged for their actual consumption of food and beverage, and use of chauffeured ground service, at local, unmarked prices. They are not bound to any set plan or menu, but can enjoy themselves as their preferences and lifestyle dictate.
Roaring Pavilion Villa and Spa’s bedroom suites have each been given their own unique personality and charm. They feature air conditioning, a sound system, ceiling fans, three-sheeted Italian linen bedding, Italian marble bathrooms with oversized tubs or shower, Turkish Roaring Pavilion Villa and Spa robes and a line of La Ligne de St. Bart bath products.

-Lush, landscaped grounds take advantage of the property’s location beside a tributary of the Roaring River. Indonesian-style jungle river gardens, with a variety of Jamaica’s native flora and ponds stocked with tropical fish, highlight the grounds.
The chef at Roaring Pavilion Villa and Spa is accomplished in local and regional cuisine. The chef blends the best of European and Caribbean cuisine in her menus and can easily cook to the special interests and dietary needs of guests.
Jamaica is world-renowned for its glorious beaches, and that glory is all yours on Roaring Pavilion's beach which is guarded at each end for your complete privacy. You can spend countless hours relishing the warm embrace of the Caribbean, enjoying a variety of water sports, or simply lying on the beach as you are caressed by a gentle sea breeze. Food and drinks are always available, and if you wish, a full barbecue lunch can be served right on the beach. For a change of scene you can stroll off the property, down to where the main branch of the Roaring River joins the ocean in a thundering falls.
The highlight of any Caribbean vacation is the time spent by the sea. At Roaring Pavilion that time will be precious and memorable.
