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.

We recently had our family reunion at Golden Clouds and it was a truly memorable experience. The staff did an amazing job of looking after a very diverse group of 20 adults and children who ranged in age from 8 to 80. We were spoiled beyond belief by the most caring, thoughtful staff who made each and every one of us feel special and welcome. We had an all-inclusive package and absolutely loved the food. Every meal was excellent.
Golden Clouds is a very beautiful property and the children had the time of their lives with every sort of amusement you could imagine - from ping pong to basketball to the jungle gym. We were there for a week, and not once did I hear any of them say they were bored. They didn’t spend a minute in front of the television and instead were out and about on various adventures on the huge park-like property. Kenneth did a great job of watching the kids while they were at the beach and providing them with snorkeling gear and was also wonderful at keeping us adults well-refreshed with rum punch while we were at the beach or by the pool.
The bedrooms and common areas are stunning, to say the least. I read an article about Golden Clouds in Conde Nast, and they referred to it as an “oasis of casual elegance” and that sums it up perfectly. Even though royalty and movie stars have stayed there, it is very laid back and the staff make you feel completely at home. I highly recommend Golden Clouds. It is a wonderful place to stay and I cannot say enough about the staff – Blossom, David, Kenneth and everyone who work there are terrific.
We spent a week at this amazing villa and had a wonderful time. The resort grounds are vast and there is ample space for quiet private areas with seating throughout the gardens, terraces and beach. We travelled as part of a larger group including 10 adults and 5 children. Our kids made good use of the games room swimming pools and Ping-Pong table. The adults had a marvellous time regardless of whether we were sitting under the pergola, or one of the terraces, or poolside under an umbrella.
If you are considering a family vacation with children, I highly recommend Golden Clouds. Children can roam rather freely and feel comfortable and safe as the main resort area has an easy layout and the property perimeter is fenced and gated. The villa is extremely well-managed and the staff are outstanding. Golden Clouds’ staff are the friendliest and happiest people one could ever meet and make each guest feel special. The food is out of this world and the service is super. The rooms are fresh, bright and airy and I slept like a log.
We are already planning our next trip to Golden Clouds!
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!
