Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Oracabessa - Golden Clouds

5 Bedrooms, 9.0 Bathrooms, 10 Sleeps (VILLA ONLY)

Holiday rates available upon request only

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!

Exceptional Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
We booked a week at Golden Clouds through our travel agent. Having never been to Jamaica before, we weren’t quite sure what to expect. We had stayed at villas in Italy and Greece, but Jamaica was a first for us. Fortunately, we have a great travel agent and she recommended Golden Clouds and we had a marvellous time. There were 16 in our group and we flew in from all over North America (New York, Toronto, Maryland, etc). Some of us had earlier flights on our arrival day so our agent made arrangements with the transportation company for different airport transfers. We were greeted by a friendly driver with a sign and he directed us to our private bus and we were on our way to Golden Clouds.

When we arrived at the villa we were welcomed by the staff with warm smiles and a lovely rum punch. We all agreed that the food during our stay was outstanding. The chef was a charming and very talented lady named Ms. Blossom, and she delighted us every day with dishes from all over the world. We dined on Italian, Chinese, and of course, Jamaican! Her desserts were irresistible - the trifle cake and banana flambé were out of this world.

I had an ocean-front room with the most amazing view. The resort is enormous, but the staff make you feel right at home. At night we would gather before dinner on the main terrace for cocktails and to watch the sunsets – absolutely stunning. We had a few trips to town, but we mostly stayed on the property and made full use of its amenities. We all agreed that since we already found paradise, it didn’t make sense to run around the island when we only had seven days to spend. We decided to save the sightseeing for some other time, and enjoyed every moment savouring the magic of Golden Clouds. I highly recommend Golden Clouds - the staff and facilities are truly exceptional.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 out of 5
We were at Golden Clouds Villa for a week with a group of friends. There were 14 of us and we had the most amazing vacation together.. We were pampered and treated like royalty by our own private staff in our own private paradise. It is impossible to compare a villa vacation to anything else, and if you are planning a holiday for a large group of family or friends, I highly recommend Golden Clouds. The villa and property are like a luxury resort, except you have the whole place to yourself. The staff are always there to assist with anything you need, and it is your home to enjoy for the week. And what a home it is, the main villa is a 10,000 sq. ft mansion and there is also another 2-bedroom villa on the property that we didn’t use, but are planning to the next time when we bring even more people.

The weather was great during our stay and we went snorkelling everyday, plus there were lots of opportunities to play tennis and hang out on the beautiful private beach. I was able to keep up my workout routine while on holidays, in spite of the unbelievably great meals, by making good use of the gymnasium. We also enjoyed the games room and ping-pong table and had many tournaments lasting into the wee hours of the morning.

Since it was sunny and hot for most of our visit, we didn’t spend much time walking around the beautiful gardens during the day. But, after an amazing dinner we would often go for long walks around the well-lit property, which is more like a private park. There is an incredible “Zen” garden with every tropical plant you can imagine. The villa has 10 staff (almost 1 per guest!) and we got to know them very well during our time at Golden Clouds. They are all very friendly and caring people, but are also very dignified and proud to be working at such a luxurious and legendary villa. Ms. Blossom is an amazing chef, and Jackson the Butler/Bartender, David, did a fabulous job, as did all the staff including Ken and Sean. We can’t wait to come back to Golden Clouds, and would recommend this villa to anyone who is looking for a vacation in paradise.

Great Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
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.
