From Jamaica with Love: this grand-scale James Bond style escape is a breath-taking hideaway which can be yours to enjoy! Probably the best kept secret in Jamaica, the Rio Chico Estate is the epitome of old-world charm and luxury and perfect for large gatherings of friends or families who are looking for the height of luxury and exclusivity to the extreme. As you enter through Rio Chico's gates, you can't help but feel as though you've just stepped straight into a Monet painting: passing lily ponds and ivy covered stone bridges on your approach through this magnificent 14-acre estate. Located just outside of Ocho Rios, Rio Chico Villa is without a doubt one of Jamaica's most exceptional and stunning properties. Manicured lawns, lush tropical and heavily fruited gardens, the landscape sings English-country-garden meets Jamaican tropical paradise. Welcome to the world of Rio Chico, no longer just a dream.
The stunning Rio Chico was built in the late 1800's and was originally operated as Dunn's River Guest House. It was sold in 1936 to Mr Crosse of the Crosse & Blackwell family (famous purveyors of gourmet chutney's, jams and spreads since the 1700's) who commissioned Italian stonemasons to design and construct the walls and statuary throughout the gardens.
Rio Chico Estate Villa offers guests luxury amenities such as a fresh water pool overlooking the ocean. A Fresh water oversized jacuzzi is perched on the cliffs also overlooking the ocean. A second freshwater pool is located beachside at the base of Dunn's River Tributary fed by Blue Mountain Waters. Rio Chico Estate is an ideal location for a destination wedding with a beautiful stone open-air chapel built on the cliffs edge or on 2,000 feet of shoreline with two private beaches.
Rio Chico Estate features a fully staffed kitchen including an Executive chef, sous chef, and two butlers serving gourmet meals in the formal indoor dining room or at the endless outdoor dining spots for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The outdoor barbecue grill is idea for casual cookouts. Bonfires prepared with real wood sticks for toasted marshmallows. Enjoy a packed cooler served beach or poolside refreshments.
