This is simply the most beautiful and luxurious villa in the Caribbean, "one of the best villas in the world." (Condé Nast Traveler). 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 outside of Ocho Rios. Imagine the classic scene from the film "Dr. No" where Sean Connery greets Ursula Andress emerging from the surf. This is our location.

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 hand-painted screen behind the baby grand piano is from Italy, as are the cherub table in the vestibule and the putti lamps in Peacock Room.

What immediately strikes you about Roaring Pavilion Villa & Spa is the loving attention to detail ~ from the furnishings and artwork to the dazzling colour accents, Italian limestone, Barbadian coral stone and French terra-cotta floors. Beds are furnished with wonderful linen sheets and down pillows, made especially for Roaring Pavilion.

The focal point is the stunning open-air pavilion reached via an interior walkway over a meandering reflecting pool. The pavilion offers a Caribbean view with steps leading to the villa's infinity-edge private pool.

Three gracious living areas include a stylish den with large-screen satellite plasma TV. Roaring Pavilion Villa & Spa is the only property of its kind to offer complete on-site spa facilities, both indoors and outside by the river. An air-conditioned state-of-the-art gym with superior aerobic and weight training equipment overlooks the Roaring River. Roaring River doesn't actually roar. It quietly seduces as a surprisingly quiet and shallow gentle stream.

Special features include lily ponds, palms in Chinese fishbowls, indoor dining under a French chandelier on 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). Pickup for water sports on the Roaring Pavilion Beach is available for a fee.
