On 220 private acres of former banana and coconut plantation stretching from mountain to sea, Wild Orchid is a glamorous and luxurious hideaway in the tropics. The Georgian design of the new mansion captures the ambiance and grace of the original plantation ... enhanced by modern amenities of air-conditioned bedrooms, state-of-the-art kitchen and baths, satellite dish and lighted tennis court. Interiors are adorned by Oriental rugs, unique hand-laid tiles and custom cedar accents. The comfortable covered verandah is furnished with large bamboo sofas and chairs covered in white canvas.
Five acres of manicured lawns and gardens surround the villa and open to the greater property ... where guests can stroll, jog and be close to nature. In past centuries, men loaded bananas onto ships 300 yards downhill from the house.
In true Colonial style, Wild Orchid is meticulously staffed so that guests are pampered through sunny days and relaxed evenings ... with memorable home-cooked meals served in the spacious indoor dining area or on the large open verandah under the almond trees ... cooled by the tradewinds. The night view from Wild Orchid is breathtaking ... especially from the al fresco dining terrace.
The Wild Orchid villa and grounds provide a superbly spacious and photogenic location for weddings, receptions and honeymoons.
Cable television in each bedroom and living room.

The Tryall Club Membership
A significant amenity for guests in this villa is membership at the excellent Tryall Club. On 2,200 acres, Tryall’s golf course is among the most beautiful in the world. Its 18 hillside and seaside fairways have been home to the Johnnie Walker, Mazda and other PGA championship events. The resident pro offers workshops and private lessons. The Tryall tennis club features nine Nova Cushion courts, some lit for night play, with world-class pro’s on call. All whites required.
The beach is well planned for parents and children. Have lunch at the beach bar. Work out in the well-equipped gym and compete in the new Usain Bolt Games Room at the Great House (teens love it). Jog the marked trails. Snorkeling, kayaking, hobie cat and sunfish are complimentary. Glass bottom boats, charter fishing, a boat to the reef and any captained craft attract various fees. Enjoy the week’s events, including the Monday Night Manager’s Cocktail Party and the Wednesday and Friday night beach parties and buffets.
On the hill, enjoy the historic Great House for daily 4:00 tea and sweets. Shop at the convenient commissary and chic boutique, and meet for happy hour and snacks at the casual bar. Also at the Great House is the new Usain Bolt Games Room open all day and night for ping pong, pool, air hockey, foosball, shuffleboard, chess and checkers, board games, comfy reclining chairs and HDTV. And don’t miss the massive Tryall pool (ping pong table there too). The Tryall Club is thoughtfully designed to please toddlers, preteens, tweens, moms, dads and everyone from teens to octogenarians.
