Named in reference to the colonial era, Fortlands Point villa resides at the site of the original military fortification leading into Discovery Bay. Indeed, the pronounced geography of the landscape sprawling around this magnificent estate remains a testament to the purpose of this once strategic vantage point. Today, Fortlands Point endures as an iconic spot from which to soak in the sights, sounds and smells of the Caribbean Sea, while basking in the Jamaican sun.
Neither work nor workout regime need be sacrificed at Fortlands Point. The villa comes equipped with Wi-Fi, a computer and a fitness center. The grounds offer three private white sand beaches, a swimming pool and alfresco dining areas. Cool off in the gazebo after a sea kayaking expedition or a round of squash at the on-site court. Kayaks, as well as squash and snorkeling gear, are complimentary. Full staff is also provided.
Padded rattan arm chairs and cozy couches fill the interior living areas of Fortlands Point. A formal dining room with a high arched ceiling awaits as the backdrop for many wonderful memories. The kitchen comes with a center island and top of the line appliances.
The seven bedrooms at Fortlands Point can accommodate up to ten adults and four children. Each comes with air conditioning and ceiling fan. The large bedroom on the upper level is particularly breathtaking with its crossed archways that are reminiscent of an Escher painting. The downstairs bedroom has its own verandah and is wheelchair accessible.
Aside from the cozy sumptuousness offered at Fortlands Point, the villa also serves as a spectacular setting for weddings and other special occasions for up to 75 guests. A one week rental is required for events. Nearby attractions include animal encounters at Dolphin Cove, the magical Green Grotto Caves and the historical Columbus Park.

It was our 7th year and we love Fortlands's Point better than any othe
Overall, we had a very nice time and enjoyed ourselves. However, we were very disappointed that we were not made aware before renting that the house and beach look directly across Discovery Bay at a huge, working Bauxite mine complete with billowing smoke stacks, not the serene, picturesque scenery we anticipated.There was also incessant booming music blaring from a bar across the bay EVERY night from 11 p.m. until approx. 5 a.m. Patrick, the Chef, went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and his food was amazing. We would have liked for the staff to have asked us every once in a while if we cared for a drink and/or snack while we were at the beach and poolside, rather than having to get them ourselves. We loved having the kayaks and paddle boards at our disposal, but much of the provided snorkel gear leaked from dry rot. The grounds were beautifully kept and we enjoyed the putting green. The property does have a lot of areas for everyone to spread out and find their own space.
patrick, Keno and the entire staff were warm, and helpful in every regard. the food was the best yet Ns the service top notch.
Our family had an amazing time at Fortlands Point. From the location to the villa to the staff, we did not want to leave! The pool and beach combo had something for everyone. The beach was calm and very kid friendly. Having the staff was wonderful. Anything you could want they made possible. We even had a reggae band perform at the house our last night! The food was wonderful. The weather was beautiful. The views from the property amazing. We will definitely be back!
I don't have the time to write a lengthy review, but the 6 adults and 8 children that enjoyed this fabulous villa vacation with me, had the time of their lives. The private beach, the splendid layout of the house, the proximity to all the amenities from the living quarters was the greatest mix of paradise and luxury. The staff was so attentive the entire time. The chef cooked fantastic, homestyle meals and made everyone happy at mealtime. The grounds are immaculately maintained and pristine always. There are so many little private areas on the property where you can enjoy peace and tranquility while reading or relaxing while listening to the ocean lap against the coral shore. Snorkel, kayak, spearfish, drink, drink, eat, swim relax and did I say relax??
Great time for any family. Highly recommend. Ask for Levi, the man KNOWS his villa. I've been renting from luxuryretreats.com and using Levi for many years (6 or so) and every experience has been better than the one before.
