Makana is one of the most glamorous private villas on the precious strip of land that borders Discovery Bay. The site itself is remarkable: a spacious villa with private tennis court and swimming pool on a sugary white sand beach bordering translucent swimming and kayaking water. The architecture is superb.

Virtually a resort within itself, Makana also includes an air-conditioned gym with powder room. An over-the-water gazebo provides a 270-degree view of the mountains, bay and Caribbean Sea and is a splendid venue for lovers of breathtaking sunsets.

Spa specialists available on-call for massages/treatments that can be set up in bedrooms, balconies or in the garden (for various charges).

Interiors are stylish and comfortable. The Great Room with water feature and fish around entrance and in atrium... opens to a spacious verandah and bar. Home-cooked meals are served on the verandah or gazebo overlooking the lawn, garden, private pool, beach and blue bay.

Child friendly, Makana's design addresses the accommodation of family units. Excellent Jamaican nannies are available on request.

The state-of-the-art kitchen includes commercial ovens, a microwave, and gas grill. The talented Makana chef treats guests each week to barbecues of steaks, chicken, shrimp, pork and lobster fired on the outdoor grill.

Driving time from the Montego Bay airport to Makana is approximately 60 minutes. Discovery Bay is an incredible turquoise body of water that has attracted some of Jamaica’s most visionary homeowners. Makana has raised the bar.

  • I came to celebrate my birthday and I will never forget my magical stay at Makana. I will definitely come back. The owners have created an amazing comfortable paradise. It is truly beautiful and first class. I have found my beach vacation spot!

    The staff was outstanding. Exceeded my expectations. Throughout our stay the staff was ever present, but not obtrusive ever. We will miss each of them. We look forward to returning.

    Chef Kayla’s food was beyond reproach. I have travelled all over the world and these were the best meals I have ever had.

  • Dear Linda,

    WOW! That's about all there is left to say. We just had to let you know how much we enjoyed our holiday. Makana is a beautiful villa and fits our family's needs to a "T". The staff made everything just perfect. The food and meal service was superb and the table settings were beautiful. Kayla's cooking - a 10+!! Makana is a fabulous home with beautiful furnishings and facilities that are maintained to perfection. We felt very safe and secure in this environment which was very important having the children with us. This is one of the best family vacations we have had and it was a great place to celebrate a birthday!

    Enid L

  • The Best Staff we have experienced in any and all villas we've been to. Super friendly, always available, good vibes from all.

    Nelson

  • It's hard to exceed expectations because we have come here so many times and it is always wonderful!

    Prabhjot A.

  • I can't begin to describe how much we enjoyed our trip to Jamaica and our stay at Makana. We have been lucky enough to travel quite a bit and stay in some of the most luxurious hotels on Earth. Makana, is something else entirely. Elegance, Excellence, and Ecstasy only begin to describe what Makana has to offer. As incredible as the house is, the staff truly make the experience life changing. Their attention to detail and desire to please slowly hypnotize you until the true meaning of Luxury Travel becomes clear; Reaching a state of relaxation where even basic human thought becomes impossible. A point in mind and body when you think to yourself; no phone, no tablet, no problem. What started as a week long vacation, is now a life long love affair. Thank you Villas by Linda Smith

    Greg R

  • Dear Linda,

    Great trip. Thanks for all your help. Overall, we couldn’t have been happier with our stay. The staff was excellent. They were extremely patient with the little ones and very mindful of everybody’s little idiosyncrasies once they got to know us (and we them). We have visited Jamaica frequently over the last several years and frequently have chosen the villa option. Makana certainly will rank near the top and I wouldn’t be surprised if we returned there one day.

    Ted M.

  • Dear Linda,

    From the moment we arrived in Jamaica and were greeted by our driver, to the moment we were driven back to our departure flights, it was evident that all details were taken care of so as to ensure a wonderful vacation. The staff were friendly and accommodating. It is hard to single out one staff member who was the "best"- all were excellent! Makana and its setting were marvelous and perfect for our group.
