Golden Clouds is a magnificent villa located on a sprawling property in the picturesque banana port village of Orcabessa. Sip your favorite drink while lounging on your own private, enclosed beach atop a stone deck upon the ocean. Located in one of the lesser developed areas of Jamaica, you will surely marvel at the beauty of the natural splendor that surrounds you during your stay.
This gated property offers many activities with its two freshwater swimming pools, tennis court and complimentary equipment, basketball semi-court, shuffleboard, volleyball, croquet, table tennis and well equipped fitness room. Or cool off in the shade while lounging in the gazebo. Nothing could be sweeter than sitting in one of the alfresco dining areas and tasting the freshly cooked delicacies prepared by your private chef. Full staff, including security, is provided. The villa is wheelchair accessible and family friendly.
Some of the views from the rooms at Golden Clouds create the illusion that you are floating on top of the sea, hence the constant feeling of being on cloud nine. The interior aesthetic of the villa is one of stately elegance, with dark woods and bright colors dominating the decorative motif. The outdoor bar on the covered terrace comes with a brilliant view of the sparkling blue ocean and makes a great place to share a laugh.
The nine comfortable bedrooms at Golden Clouds accommodate up to eighteen guests. Most of the beds feature elegant wooden posts that add to the stately feel of the villa. Each bedroom includes en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, TV and ceiling fan.
Golden Clouds is a mere fifteen minute walk to the famed James Bond Beach. Other recommendations for day excursions include scaling the multiple levels at Dunns River Falls or exploring the magical wonders at Green Grotto Caves. With an 80% record for return guests, you may just find yourself flying back to re-experience this breathtaking Jamaican villa in no time at all!

Golden Clouds is one of the finest vacation destinations in the Caribbean. It is serene and peaceful, but also has a sense of excitement and adventure mixed with old world elegance. The property is spectacular with gorgeous guestrooms and ample seating areas. The beach and pools are a delight and are perfect for relaxing and taking in the stunning scenery. The resort grounds are vast and there is ample space for quiet private areas with seating throughout the gardens, terraces and beach. The villa is very well-managed and the staff are the friendliest and most helpful people one could ever meet and they have a wonderful way of making each guest feel special. The food by the amazing chef, Ms Blossom is outstanding and the service is out of this world. The rooms are bright and airy and I slept great every night (thanks to a comfortable bed and a quiet air conditioner).
We travelled as part of a larger group including 13 adults and 5 children. It was not our first time to Golden Clouds – we had visited three years ago and were looking forward to coming back. Our memories were of a beautiful villa with lots of things to do. We were thrilled to find there was even more amenities than our last visit. The new playground was a big hit with our younger ones and the new water trampoline was popular with everyone. The kids (both young and old) spent a lot of time in the games room, playing ping-pong, or playing tennis and basketball.
If you are considering a family vacation with children, I highly recommend Golden Clouds. We are already planning our next trip and can’t wait to return.
We spent a wonderful week at Golden Clouds and can't wait to go back. When we entered the man gate and began the long drive through the estate's gardens we knew we were in a magical place. The main building sits on the edge of the ocean with a large private beach below. The list of amenities that are provided by this resort is very long and includes tennis, ping pong, volleyball, basketball, shuffleboard, and in addition to the beach it also has two swimming pools.
The staff are simply amazing. Blossom the chef is a wonderful person and she prepared great meals morning, noon, and night. We had great service from David, Jackson, Kenneth, Charlie and Sean, and the maids were terrific as well. It was the first time we had travelled with our extended family which included children, aunts, uncles, and even grandparents, as well as a few old friends. There were 18 of us in all, and everyone agreed that it was the vacation of a lifetime. The children really enjoyed themselves and made good use of the playground and games room. We even hired a babysitter when we went on some excursions such as ziplining or visiting the Noel Coward museum.
The excursions were very popular with our group and all the adults went on at least one. We had booked an all-inclusive package and had a van and driver for the week so we made good use of the van to check out some of the local excursions. The Mystic Mountain zipline was particularly popular, but we also enjoyed a bit of shopping as well.
I would highly recommend Golden Clouds for anyone who is looking for a wonderful vacation with a large group of family and friends. It is truly an amazing place.
We were a party of seventeen. Had some early issues communicating requirements with Concierge, but did get things settled. Once there, everything was as advertised. Beautiful villa/ resort; great staff. the amount of common area was unbelievable and from everywhere the view is mesmerizing. It was hot and humid (we stayed last week in June), but A/C's kept things cool. Blossom (our chef and team lead), cooked some great meals, make sure you save room for deserts. She also arranged for us to visit GoldenEye resort (2 villas down) and a turtle hatching expedition at another neighbors, really a once in a lifetime event. 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. Only negative comment is that the baths are a little outdated.
We decided to try Golden Clouds because we were told that the snorkeling and diving were good which was the one drawback of the houses on Fortland Point in Runaway Bay. When one of us heard from a previous renter that the food was sparse we assumed that it was because they had opted for the all inclusive food plan. Little did we suspect that we would meet with the same scenario. Whereas at the Fortland Point houses we had hors d'ouevres with drinks, we had carrot sticks and celery sticks and some cheese. We had one nine inch pie for 14 people. Ice cream was placed on the table in th carton. We ran out of water, club soda and pop. Most every lunch was grilled cheese sandiwches. There was no turndown service at night. Food was placed on the table for us to serve ourselves. Staff was not very evident most of the time. The tennis chourt was badly in need of re-surfacing and when we asked to have the leaves removed we were ingnored. When we left my son carried the bags to the ca
As perfect as we could ever expect. The staff was superb, the property magnificent, and Jamaica is beautiful. We can hardly wait to return. Blossom, Jackson, Ken, Muffett, Sean, Damian, Charles? were very attentive and fun to be around. The property is perfect for family visits with activities on site for all. Our Isalnd driver Willie was also great!
