True to its name, Aman-oka is a “peaceful home” of exquisite design and restful ambiance. Quiet interiors are complementary textures of teak, bamboo, and stone from Jamaica, China, and Indonesia. Delicate orchids accessorize every room and bath. Meandering lily ponds, fountains and gardens, and more orchids grace the exterior. The garden at Amanoka is truly beautiful and the outside entertaining space is extraordinary.

The Amanoka compound consists of the Main Villa and The Annex ... linked by a landscaped walkway through an interior courtyard.

Each day begins with fresh-squeezed orange juice and fresh-ground Blue Mountain coffee, fruit, bagels, and muffins on the verandah buffet ... followed by a full breakfast when all guests are ready. Extraordinary lunches and memorable candlelight dinners are served on the al fresco verandah or waterfront deck. Cocktail hour canapés and hors d’oeuvres are offered each evening around the verandah bar. The chef will also plan a torchlight beach party with chicken, chops, steaks, fresh fish or lobster served to sizzle from the outdoor coal grill.

Unique to Amanoka is its floating spa in a tropical pavilion. The spa sits on a landscaped lily pond bordered by soothing waterfalls. Spa treatments by holistic specialists are available for various fees. Adjacent to the spa is the air-conditioned gym with Precor Elliptical, treadmill, free weights, fitness DVDs, balls, mats, and music. Just across the lane is Amanoka's own Novacrylic surface tennis court, lit for night play. Rackets are provided. Amanoka is a virtual resort within itself.

The state-of-the-art kitchen has a 6-burner gas stove, Jenn-Air double oven, microwave, dishwasher, bottled water server, and gas grill.

Kayaks, sailfish, and snorkel gear are complimentary. In lively Ocho Rios, 30 minutes from Amanoka are nightlife, restaurants, shops, open-air craft markets, more water sports, rafting, jitney tours of a working plantation, and dramatic Dunn’s River Falls. Driving time from the Montego Bay airport to Amanoka is approximately 60 minutes ... well worth the drive along a gorgeous seascape. The eastern shore of Discovery Bay with its lovely villas and cottages is colloquially known as “The Riviera” ... one of Jamaica’s treasures.


All seven bedrooms have hair dryers, televisions, telephones, and intercoms to the bar, kitchen, staff quarters, and other guest rooms. Both the gym and the spa are air-conditioned.

Just wanted to let you know how spectacular our stay was at Amanoka. The staff and all of the amenities were superb. It was truly a 5 star private resort making it a very special family celebration.

Carol S.

Beautiful home and exquisite beach! Not only was the sandy shoreline flawless and the crystal clear water perfectly refreshing, but the creatively designed sun shade allowed us to enjoy it all day long!

All of the bedrooms were fabulous, and our guests remarked each morning about how comfortable their night was.

Chef Cliff did an amazing job of preparing interesting and different foods for each meal sprinkling in some local fare (those fried plantains with Caribbean salsa are addicting!) each time as we requested. Lamb, steak, jerk chicken, lobster, shrimp and fresh fish – does it get any better? We had dinners on the patio, out on the pier, and even on the beach – all executed flawlessly by the staff. Ahhhh, the staff!

All in all, a spectacular trip! We want to thank you, the staff at Villas by Linda Smith, the homeowners, the Amanoka staff, and all of the others who played a role in making sure we were well taken care of. You enabled 14 people to form some awesome memories that they will never forget.

Amanoka had everything we needed. Every detail was perfect! The villa was awesome but the staff was even more awesome. We could not have asked for anything better!!

Andy M.

Amanoka is very nice, high quality and well kept.

Andrea S.

Amanoka was unbelievably wonderful in every way, highly recommend everything about it. The staff was amazing!

Deb R.

Our entire party could not get over the paradise I brought them to.
Your villa was enough for a great vacation but throw in your amazing staff and we all said we could never go anywhere else. The cleanliness of the entire villa was a testament to your cleaning staff. Goss’s food was amazing and with Tia and Donny catering to our every need, we all felt very special.
Thank you again for sharing your villa and staff with us!
Until next time!

We really wanted to let you know what an incredible staff that you have at the villa. Each and every one of them personally made our stay unforgettable. Their attentiveness to our needs, the unbelievable food, excellent service, their care for your property and us as guests from the housekeeping to the landscaping, setup of the different unique outdoor locations for our meals together around the property were all truly outstanding. Laytona and Nate did an outstanding job keeping the landscaping looking incredible even after a big storm and gusty winds, Latoya and the team did a great job with all of the housekeeping and Brittany in the kitchen as the sous chef. Goss, Donnie, and Tia were the 3 most "front-facing" staff members and, I must say, the three of them made our vacation a better one. You are so lucky to have such a top-notch staff on hand at your villa and I'm sure it's difficult to find a group of 8 staff members that can be such a great team for your many guests.

We had another memorable visit to Amanoka this year thanks to the wonderful crew that you have assembled...cannot say enough good things about the team and the professionalism exhibited combined with a family-friendly demeanor...made the vacation feel like a vacation as defined.
