Roaring Pavilion is a world-class private home ~ remarkable for exquisite interior design, excellent staff and service, secluded private beach and luxurious amenities.
Textures of teak, mahogany, coral, suede and linen adorn this beautiful home. Floor tiles are raw Parefeuille French terra cotta. Exterior walls are custom-colored Italian limestone. Rugs are from Marrakech and Turkey.
The Pavilion chandelier is from Italy; the dining room chandelier is from St. Remy de Provence. Bronze busts are from Germany. The cherub table in the vestibule and the putti lamps in Peacock Room are from Italy.
This is simply the most beautiful and luxurious villa in the Caribbean, “one of the best villas in the world” (Condé Nast). Host to many luminaries, this beachfront estate lies magically where the Roaring River meets the Caribbean Sea in St. Ann’s Bay, a few minutes west of Ocho Rios. Imagine the classic scene from “Dr. No” where Sean Connery greets Ursula Anderss emerging from the surf. This is our location.
The immediate impression upon entering this home is of exquisite good taste and impressive attention to the details that contribute to its rating as “one of the best places to stay in the whole world” … from furnishings and artwork to an array of remarkable lighting features, Italian limestone, Barbadian coral stone walls and perfect Angelo Donghia furniture. Beds are furnished with wonderful linen sheets and down pillows, made especially for Roaring Pavilion.
Step across a gently sloping bridge over an interior water feature to the focal point and most-loved gathering place: a stunning, softly draped open-air living and dining pavilion. This eponymous pavilion overlooks the infinity-edge pool, gardens and deep blue Caribbean, just a few yards down the soft lawn.
Three gracious living areas include a stylish den with large-screen satellite plasma TV, hidden from view by tall leather panels when not being used. An air-conditioned state-of-the-art gym with superior aerobic and weight training equipment overlooks the Roaring River. The river doesn’t actually roar. It quietly flows by the property with a gentle current that creates a meditation environ.
Special features include lily ponds, palms in Chinese fishbowls, indoor dining under a French chandelier over a 10′ mahogany table, offshore reef within snorkeling distance, bonfire night on the beach (marshmallows & drinks), and water sports arranged on request (jet skis, deep sea fishing, daytime and sunset cruises, windsurfing, parasailing). Masks and snorkels are complimentary; fins are rented for proper size. Pickup for water sports on the Roaring Pavilion Beach is available for a fee.
The high-tech sound system includes various controls at every bedside. CD players and iPod docks are in each room. Televisions with cable, satellite and DVD can be placed in any bedroom on request. Large libraries of music and movies are available. All bathrooms are Travertine marble and include Jacuzzi, hair dryers, and ultra-soft designer bathrobes.
Jamaica is world-renowned for its glorious beaches, and that glory is all yours on Roaring Pavilion’s beach which is guarded at each end for your complete privacy. You can spend countless hours relishing the warm embrace of the Caribbean, enjoying a variety of water sports, or simply lying on the beach as you are caressed by a gentle sea breeze. Food and drinks are always available, and if you wish, a full barbecue lunch can be served right on the beach. For a change of scene you can stroll off the property, down to where the main branch of the Roaring River joins the ocean in a thundering falls.
Unlimited spa services and steam room are on site in the state-of-the-art indoor/outdoor salon privately located next to the river. Highly trained technicans offer a varied menu, the newest and most in demand being oxygen and anti-aging treatments. Spa services are available all days, all hours at no additional charge.
