Six bedrooms, multiple gazebos and sitting areas, a beautiful pool and water front lido with a broad marble terrace are bordered by a wide soft lawn, coconut palms and a blue view that stretches to infinity. The vista is so expansive that it captures both the sunrise and sunset skies.

Twelve miles across the sea is the town of Montego Bay with a light show that adds magic to this spectacular sight each night.

Complementing this dramatic site is the architecturally unique and glamorous villa itself. Its features are distinctly Caribbean; its interiors are rich in Jamaican, Asian and European influences in an esoteric merging of period, contemporary and traditional style. With consideration for vacationers in groups of up to 12 guests, Karma Bay’s design provides many private areas for hours of solitude whenever individuals wish to escape from their beloved families and best friends.

Karma Bay at the Tryall Club Reviews

Thank you so much for an experience that will last a life time for me. I appreciate all that you did to help make my celebration a memorable one. We are now planning our next trip to Karma Bay!! Again, thanks a million.


Karma Bay - perfection at Tryall!

We've rented private villas in Jamaica many times, as we love the villa experience and Jamaican hospitality. Three years ago we found Tryall Club. Tryall is a beautiful property located less than 30 minutes from the airport. Tryall offers many amenities, with a golf course, tennis courts, fitness center, shops and restaurant onsite. This year we rented Karma Bay and found perfection. What an amazing villa, located directly on the water. It is a piece of heaven on earth. So many aspects about Karma Bay make it a five-star experience, but the truly special aspect of Karma Bay is its staff. Paul, our butler, was the best we have had in 10 years. Andrew, the chef just joined the staff, and was a fabulous addition to this villa. Every meal was delicious. Elizabeth, Catherine, Andrea and Patrick were very attentive and met our every need. W'e can't write enough positive feedback for this fabulous staff. We always liked to try new villas each year, but we have finally found our home away from home. Karma Bay and its staff are simply perfection.


I just wanted to drop a line to say what a wonderful time my family and I had at Karma Bay. The staff were outstanding and the villa just lovely. The meals prepared by Chef George were fantastic. We were truly spoiled. We're not sure how we will be able to go back to our old vacations . Thank you for making this such a wonderful experience.
