Montego Bay Compound - Bambu Villa
Montego Bay Compound – Bambu Villa
Nestled on a vast 10,000 square feet, this magnificent hilltop estate is superbly situated to enjoy sparkling vistas of the turquoise Caribbean Sea. With six spacious bedrooms, Bambu Villa is without a doubt the best place to bring your friends and family to delight in a luxurious tropical getaway. Situated at Tamarind Hill on the lush west side of Montego Bay, you’ll enjoy a location that’s serene and secluded, but close to everything you’ll want to see on a trip to the stunning island of Jamaica.
Originally designed by the distinguished architect Robert Hartley in the early 1960s, Bambu features an impressive combination of classic West Indies architecture mixed with Italian Venetian style and Palladian arches. The house still contains this traditional sensibility, but was completely renovated with modern fixtures in 2005, blending Old World elegance with New World comforts.
Guests enter the house through a wrought, iron gate and double mahogany doors, straight to an impressive, double-level entry hall with 40-foot high ceilings, antique brick floors, and limestone walls. Climb up the circular staircase and find yourself given access to the primary living spaces via covered walkways. You’ll spend your time enshrouded with luxury, luxuriating in plush sofas that are surrounded by large windows, allowing for ample amounts of natural light to flood the space. The seamless blend of indoor and outdoor luxury paired with high, dome-like ceilings lets warm, ocean breezes run cool you off all day long.
When dinner rolls around, take advantage of your gorgeous, state of the art kitchen, outfitted with gourmet amenities that will ensure all of your creations are cooked to perfection. You can make use of this space on your own, or allow your personal cook to whip you up a delicious and authentic Jamaican meal. During your stay, you’ll also have access to a butler, gardener, housekeeping, and laundry service, all there to make your stay as relaxing as possible.
After a day in this tropical paradise, you’ll love having your own personal retreat to return to. This home offers six incredible en-suite bathrooms, offering you exotic elegance and unparalleled privacy. The master suite boasts a four-poster king-sized bed, along with French doors that open up to a covered verandah with breathtaking views of the sea. Enjoy access to separate, travertine marble his and hers bathrooms, both with double shower heads. The next two bedrooms also offer king-sized beds with marble bathrooms, and the fourth bedroom has a queen bed. Bedroom number five has two full-sized beds, and the final bedroom is the children’s room, outfitted with charming bunk beds.
On the east side of the main level of the home, a large arched opening gives access to the exquisite pool area. You’ll spend hours out here, basking in the Caribbean sun and refreshing yourself in the cool waters. Bambu Villa is set in a beautifully landscaped grounds, with well-manicured lawns bordered by lush, tropical flora. There are wild white begonias, three varieties of heliconia, rare Bromeliads, and so much more. You’ll enjoy the interesting collection of Palm trees, including Fox Tail, Chinese Fan, and Lady Palms. The grounds are well fruited with oranges, limes, papayas, and more. Tucked away in the garden, you’ll find a treehouse and playhouse, perfect for the little ones.
This property is conveniently located for wonderful access to everything Jamaica and Montego Bay have to offer. You’re a few minutes’ drive from Round Hill, Jamaica’s most elegant hotel. The owners have a membership at Tryall Club, just five miles down the road and featuring an acclaimed 18-hole championship golf course and other facilities. Explore other amazing aspects of Montego Bay, such as the Hip Strip for nightlife, the famous Rose Hall, the mysterious Green Grotto Caves, and so much more. You’ll have a blast no matter what you decide to do.

Bamboo Villa Outstanding Property
This property is spectacular!! The views, the lush vegetation, the elegant, yet whimsical decor is nothing short of amazing. Each room provides a unique view, luxurious breeze and an opportunity for lounging, eating, sleeping, socializing or swimming. Our biggest dilemma was which of the many rooms to utilize. Jackie, our house manager and cook, delighted us with meals prepared with love and attention to our individual tastes. Our butler Del Roy presented each meal on beautifully set tables overflowing with freshly cut flowers from the gorgeous and vast grounds. He suggested outings and day trips that allowed us a unique experience on the Island. The driver Benjie was available to drive us anywhere on the Island so that we could feel save and comfortable at all times. We slept soundly each night in our air-conditioned suites after enjoying our full days on the Island. Nora, thank you for making this elegant, yet especially warm villa available for us to experience!”
What a treat!!!
What a treat!!! Communicating with Nora prior to our trip was a pleasure. From the moment we arrived at her breathtaking home (with jaw dropping views) we were spoiled endlessly by Jacky, Del Roy, Erica, Sam and Lester. They could not make us feel more welcome at Bambu Villa or more relaxed! Jacky is the most incredible chef but her warmth extends way beyond the kitchen. We took Nora's advice and visited Tyrall Club for tubing, sailing and a great lunch and took a day trip to Negril. We are so thankful for such a wonderful stay! ”
Comfort, Relaxation and oh la la,.... the view was breathtaking!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in this beautiful home! Nora, the owner, was very responsive to our questions and helped to make our vacation plans go smoothly. The views of Montego Bay are simply breathtaking. The Gardens are lovely and very well kept. The staff took very good care of us during our stay.... We love Jamaica!!”
