Roaring Pavilion & Spa 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.  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 Andress 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 & Spa.

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 our own five complimentary wave runners, lily ponds, palms in Chinese fishbowls, indoor dining under a French chandelier over a 10’ mahogany table, al fresco dining in the pavilion or a barbeque by the river, an offshore reef within snorkeling distance, bonfire night on the beach (marshmallows & drinks), and more water sports arranged on request (jet skis, deep sea fishing, daytime and sunset cruises, windsurfing, parasailing). Masks, snorkels and fins are complimentary. Pickup for water sports on the Roaring Pavilion Beach is available for a fee. 

Golf is nearby at Breezes Runaway Bay or Sandals in Upton area of Ocho Rios. Horseback riding is also near at Chukka Cove.
