Welcome to Malatai on the Beach, a glamorous 8-bedroom beachfront villa located in the stunning Ocho Rios. You will find Villa Malatai just west of Ocho Rios; a small tropical lane leads to an electronic gate to reveal a large and exquisite new Jamaican villa - Malatai.

Villa Malatai, one of the newest and largest villas in Jamaica, is elegantly perched on the splendid Mammee Bay's translucent turquoise waters. Stately lions, koi, and lily ponds grace the covered entrance. Textures of gleaming Jotoba wood, Italian tile, Jerusalem stone, marble, and granite, interior spaces open to the piece de resistance: a 3,300-square-foot sugary white sand beach.

The immaculately tasteful interior design of this modern villa matches the natural beauty you will find outside. The free-form pool includes a shallow children’s section, separated from the deeper pool by an underwater partition.

The overall property consists of the spacious main villa, separate air-conditioned fitness cottage, hot tub, large lawn with shaded sitting areas, and teak party deck with barbeque for outdoor entertaining by the sea. Beyond the lawn are the lovely white beach and excellent swimming water. Four single and four double kayaks are complimentary. Life vests are also provided for both adults and children.

A long fence privatizes the pool and lawn. The fence is designed to be rolled open each morning to reveal a gorgeous all-day panorama of the beach, and blue sea just steps across the soft grassy lawn. Day and night, the lapping of the waves will make you believe you are in paradise!

From the state-of-the-art tile, stainless steel, and granite kitchen, home-cooked meals are served in the inside dining room or on the alfresco veranda. The veranda bar is also a magical spot for evening drinks and hors d’oeuvres. As a special treat, the butler will hire a mento band and plan a torchlight beach party with jerk chicken and pork, tenderloin, kabobs, or fresh fish or lobster served sizzling from the outdoor grill.

On request, the butler can arrange for jet skis, water skis, parasailing, windsurfing and a sunset cruise boat to be delivered to the Malatai beach. The staff can also arrange yoga instruction and spa treatments at the villa. While privately located, Malatai is only minutes from Dolphin Cove, famous Dunn‘s River Falls, and lively Ocho Rios with its wide selection of duty-free shopping, excursions, and music. Jamaica has so much to offer and something for everyone to enjoy. Check out all of our favorite Jamaica Highlights here.


When you stay at Villa Malatai, you will be personally cared for by The Villa’s own chefs, butler, housekeeper, laundress, and gardener. You will feel welcomed and pampered throughout your stay. On the beach, or by the pool, the staff will be on hand to look after your every need and ensure your comfort at all times.

This villa is a beachfront home. It should be noted that beaches change their shape and size from day to day, week to week and month to month, mainly as a response to seasonal waves, currents and tides. Every effort has been made to depict the beach in front of this property, but temporary changes may occur.

Area description

• Town: 5-minute drive to Ocho Rios
• Airport: 90 minutes to MBJ Sangster Intl Airport

Ocho Rios, which is located 54 miles north of Kingston, is built around a wide bay with a sweeping arc of hotel lined beach. It is well geared to meet the cruise passengers who are often present. The chief attraction is Island Village which is located at the far west end of Main Street. It is a slick collection of shops, restaurants and bars with a private beach and a great museum called the Reggae Xplosion which is dedicated completely to Reggae – Jamaica’s best know export! The museum even includes a night club where guides demonstrate the latest moves. There are lots of wonderful things to do in and around Ocho Rios including:
Shaw Park Botanical Gardens
Located 550 feet above the sea, the gardens have beautiful views of Ocho Rios and are home to many rare plants and trees as well as a very pretty waterfall.

Coyaba River Garden
Also with wonderful views, Coyaba Garden’s are more compact than Shaw Park with paths threading past ponds and streams. It also has an interesting museum dedicated to local history.

Dolphin Cove & Dunn's River Falls
Just west of Ocho Rios is probably Jamaica’s most famous attraction – the Dunn’s River Falls. It is a magnificent cascade of multiple tiers pouring over smooth limestone rocks, encircled by interesting ferns and foliage and ending at a beautiful cove with white sands and crystal clear waters. There is also a great reef offshore and therefore it’s well worth bringing some snorkelling gear.
Climbing up the falls is the thing to do. When you enter you can take a guide who will assist you in finding an easy route up. Remember to wear a swimsuit and also gym shoes as you will undoubtedly be drenched by the time you reach the top! Dunn’s Falls is quite touristy and developed (it can get busy when the cruise ships come in) with plenty of car parking and a large craft market at the end but it’s well worth a visit.
Practically opposite Dunn’s River is Dolphin Cove which is a kind of Mini-theme Park which provides the opportunity to swim with dolphins and stingrays. You will also get an opportunity to get up close and personal with macaws, snakes, iguanas and goats.

Green Grotto Caves
Located 22 miles west of Ocho Rios on the main road between The Runway and Discovery Bay, The Green Grotto is an extensive range of limestone caverns with a subterranean lake and plenty of impressive stalactites and stalagmites. The history of Green Grotto is really interesting as they were originally used by the Amerindians as a place of worship and later as a hideout by Spanish troops.

Mystic Mountain
Located close to Ocho Rios Mystic Mountain is definitely one of the top attractions in Jamaica. There is a really good cable car ride, a zip line, Mystic water slide, infinity-edge pool, bobsled track and a restaurant with a great view of the Bay of Ocho Rios! It’s really well done and great for the adventurous at heart.

Bob Marley Center & Mausoleum
Located 25 miles south-west of Ocho Rios, high in the St Ann hills amongst a gorgeous landscape of grassy cattle pastures, lies the Bob Marley museum where he was born and spent his early childhood before he moved to Kingston at the age of 13. With a rasta red, gold and green flag flapping in the wind, the compound is centred around the tiny wooden shack where the Marley’s lived. The mausoleum itself is a simple whitewashed building holding Bob Marley’s tomb.

We can't express how pleased we were with the hospitality and level of service we received by the entire staff. The villa and beach are so beautiful. However, as beautiful as the beach and villa are, it is because of the world class staff that we would absolutely come back and recommend. Alton is a tremendous chef and the support of his staff makes for a truly memorable experience.
