Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in Discovery Bay
Bedrooms 6, Bathrooms 7, Sleeps 12
Makana is one of the most glamorous private villas on the precious strip of land that borders Discovery Bay.
The site itself is remarkable: a spacious villa with private tennis court and swimming pool on a sugary white sand beach bordering translucent swimming and kayaking water. The architecture is superb.
Virtually a resort within itself, Makana also includes an air-conditioned gym and adjoining spa room. An over-the-water gazebo provides a 270-degree view of the mountains, bay and Caribbean Sea and is a splendid venue for lovers of breathtaking sunsets.
Interiors are stylish and comfortable. The Great Room opens to a spacious verandah and bar. Home-cooked meals are served on the al fresco dining terrace overlooking the lawn, garden, private pool, beach and blue bay.
Child friendly, Makana's design addresses the accommodation of family units. Excellent Jamaican nannies are available on request.
The state-of-the-art kitchen includes a commercial oven, microwave and gas grill. Each week, the talented Makana chef can prepare barbecues of steaks, chicken, shrimp, pork and lobster fired on the outdoor grill.
Driving time from the Montego Bay airport to Makana is approximately 60 minutes. Discovery Bay is an incredible turquoise body of water that has attracted some of Jamaica’s most visionary homeowners. Makana has raised the bar.

Jamaica is often referred to as a cultural superpower, though a very small island nation, its name and various aspects of its culture are world-renowned. Jamaica is the third largest island in the Caribbean and is one of the larger set of islands referred to as the Greater Antilles.
There's something for everyone in Jamaica. Go four-wheeling to Sandy Bay, swing through the trees on a canopy tour or swim with dolphins in Ocho Rios. Other popular activities include hiking, horseback riding, diving, SCUBA diving and other water sports or relaxation on the beaches.
