Timbuktu by the Sea completed in winter of 2023, is a luxury five-bedroom villa located east of Ocho Rios. Experience touches of Timbuktu, the Middle East and Asia in a lush tropical setting. The villa gets its name from Timbuktu, Mali.
On arrival, intricately carved front doors, made by the Dogon people of Mali lead you to a breathtaking view of the sea. A welcoming cocktail invites you to relax while enjoying the view and ocean breeze.
When the land was cleared for the construction of the villa, the owners took great care to preserve the wood from the hardwood trees so they could be used extensively for the construction and furnishing of Timbuktu by the Sea!
The villa offers luxury and comfort, from the beautifully carved furnishings to the sumptuous white bed linens. The infinity pool melts into the sapphire Caribbean Sea. Amenities abound. Three levels of relaxation include the infinity pool level, the romantic overlook dining level, and the sunset gazing level.
A popular dive site is located approximately 100 yards from our jetty and can be reached through shore diving or by boat. The villa is located between two fish sanctuaries and thus an ideal location for snorkeling or scuba diving. At certain times of the year, guests can see a turtle release nearby, part of an important marine sanctuary program and a delight for kids of all ages. Two tandem kayaks are available during suitable weather for those who are seafaring and adventurous. For the not so adventurous, several sandy beaches are located nearby.
Amenities include a pickleball court, table tennis, a gym, fuzzball and games such as bocce ball, corn hole and multiple board games. Downtime can be spent in the library, enjoying movie night in the TV room or sunset watching by the fire pit.
The villa is the ideal holiday place for those who yearn for a unique multicultural vacation while enjoying Jamaican hospitality and fine dining with a smile. It is wheelchair accessible, and concierge medical care is available. The Ian Fleming airport is just minutes away, offering non-stop service to Miami on American Airlines. It is a short drive to the attractions and shops of Ocho Rios.
