Hermosa Cove, Jamaica’s Villa Hotel, offers secluded lodging and fine dining in a hand-crafted resort in Ocho Rios. Nine art-filled villas feature traditional Caribbean architecture, spacious living quarters, stocked kitchens, walk-in rain showers, private gardens, and glistening dip pools.

Meandering paths lead to the resort’s numerous amenities. Snorkel the cove’s endless coral reefs accompanied by an expert guide. Savor tropical fruits and local delicacies in the casual splendor of Christopher’s, the resort’s signature restaurant. Restore your spirit with a soothing massage in a seaside pavilion. Stroll down a stone pier to a hand-thatched gazebo to bask in a romantic sunset. Or just pause along the path to marvel at the scarlet heliconia, Jamaica’s “hanging lobster claw” flower.

Deb and Clayton, the resort’s artisan-proprietors, have provided every resource to design your ideal vacation. Whether you seek adventure, solitude, romance, or reconnection, Hermosa Cove offers the discerning traveler a private island home in the heart of Jamaica’s historic and breathtaking Gold Coast.
