THE SELAH VILLA - FULLY STAFFED PRIVATE VILLA

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Runaway Bay - SELAH VILLA

Incredibly beautiful, this special villa sits on the sea where the waves gently break on shallow reefs and roll in providing their own music.

Selah is in Runaway Bay – a small fishing village unspoiled by commercialism. All conveniences are available to make a holiday. Well stocked supermarket and specialist butcher nearby.

Runaway Bay is the place the sugar plantation slaves escaped in the bygone slave era of Jamaica. The beach is one mile of white sand for lying down, strolling and swimming. Selah is located on the eastern end of the beach on a cove across (400 yards) from the new Hedonism III Hotel. Near enough to access the amenities, far enough to be private and escape the crowds.

Selah is safe, secure and secluded yet not lonely. It is situated on the edge of a natural mangrove hundreds of years old which is home to doves and local bird life. The designer, Architect – Jeremy Millingen’s international experience was challenged to achieve the mandate of the owners to design a home that is beautiful, charming and cool. When you visit let us know whether Jeremy succeeded.

Selah: Pause and think on this.

MAHVELOUS!

  • 5 out of 5
BEST.VACATION.EVER. My week at Selah Villa was wonderful. If you haven't seen the photos, Selah Villa is beautiful. It's a stone's throw from Jewel (the former Hedonism resort), and features its own private beach, tennis court, and a wonderful pool. It comes with all the accoutrements you'd expect, even including two kayaks (a twin and a single) and a catamaran.
The staff is AWESOME! Patrick, Ryan, and Lesreen took care of our every need. They were always surreptitiously in the background, ready to assist us at a moment's notice. Occasionally we would take a nap, and Lesreen would re-make our bed again! Ryan's cooking was awesome, we never felt any need to head outside for a restaurant, having a marvelous meal with a superb ocean view nightly was spectacular. Ryan was terrific at customizing our menu and keeping everybody fed and happy.
For those not familiar with Selah Villa, the staff purchases, delivers, and prepares the food, the vacationer pays for it. Ryan helped us manage our groceries and food bill very well.
The tennis court is great. I was a bit disappointed that the tennis court didn't have a net strap.
The snorkeling and scuba here is world class. Great snorkeling in Selah Villa's own little private bay, as well as the rocks by the Jewel resort. Great reefs out there with plenty of aquatic life. There is a sunken ship and plane nearby (about 60 feet down) for those that are scuba minded. The Selah Villa private beach features a couple of palapas with hammock and plenty of loungers on the beach.
Loved the pool and jacuzzi. It's a forty foot square infinity pool. Water is warm and inviting. The near end is super-shallow for adults to lounge around in, the middle area is shallow for kids to play around in, and the far end is deep enough to swim in. Plenty of pool toys for everyone.
The tech at Selah Villa was good. Two LCDs, one with netflix. Good selection of movies. PC and wireless. Probably the biggest glitch I experienced was the internet speed. Most of the days there I experienced frustrating sub-dialup speeds. Resetting the router did help for a while. For the last two days of our trip we got decent speeds, no problem. Your mileage may vary.
It's not an inexpensive vacation, but when you factor in the fact that the rental rate plus groceries is all you need, it's not as bad as you'd think. You have to spend your time on this world somewhere; this is one of the finest places to do so. Five stars.

BLISSFUL

  • 5 out of 5
A group of 7 stayed through the Holidays at Selah and it was a complete delight. The sea was the eighth member of the group and was with us every moment of the trip. I have been in withdrawal since my return, craving the beauty of the sea and the endlessly fascinating lullaby. We jokingly-but accurately- decided it was a tree sloth vacation. No one moved very fast or very far. There are some reported patches of moss from the endless splashing about in the poll or hot tub or lagoon.

The staff is superb. I am not used to being treated that well and it was a very nice experience. We felt that Patrick, Rhyan and the girls made every effort to anticipate our comforts. They were engaging, friendly and very efficient.

If your vacation goals include indulgent pampering and fabulous beach napping, Selah is worthy of your attention.
