Located in the gated community of Great River Private on one of the highest mountaintops overlooking Montego Bay and the Caribbean Sea, the site consists of 18 acres. Twelve buildings, a helicopter pad, and a tennis court occupy five acres.

The paved entrance road is elegantly landscaped with stately Royal Palms. Black and gold wrought iron gates from Thailand mark the entrance to the property. Hand-carved teak doors from Bali lead to multiple interior areas in textures of Travertine marble, Brazilian granite, cedar, and teak. Colorful gardens are accented with ancient carved Balinese, Burmese, Thai, and Chinese statuary. Serene lily ponds and turquoise pools separate various living spaces within the compound. There is no road access to the densely-wooded property above Silent Waters. Privacy is assured. Sophisticated electronic security and video monitors ensure that only invited parties may enter the compound.

The hub of the compound is the 900-square-foot Main Pavilion. 100 feet of sliding glass doors disappear into pocket walls to open the central Pavilion to a breathtaking panorama of the sea, sky, and mountains. The Pavilion opens to a marble terrace, infinity-edge swimming pool, and sunning area overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Montego Bay.

A few steps across the terrace are the breakfast gazebo, dining room, and open-air bar with television, DVD, and cushioned seating for 20. An 80’ reflection pool wraps around the al fresco breakfast gazebo and dining pavilion. A garden path leads up the mountain to the very private owner’s villa which accommodates two more guests.


Guest rooms consist of 5 individual detached villa suites, each under a separate roof, which accommodate a total of 18 guests. The Owner's Suite can also be rented which can accommodate an additional 2 adults. Each suite is equipped with HD Smart Internet TV and stereo.

I just want to personally thank you for making this experience seamless. I had a memorable and magical birthday celebration with family and friends. The villa was gorgeous and the staff & food were wonderful. I would not hesitate at all to use your agency again for any booking. Thank you for always being very responsive to questions and concerns.


Dear Linda,

Silent Waters is like entering another world. The lily ponds, breathtaking views of mountains, sea and river valley make this villa the most peaceful I have ever stayed at. All the bedroom suites are very private while the main living and dining areas are perfect for hosting guests. Ozzie is always ready at his bar to whip up delightful drinks. The appetizers and meals were outstanding. The open air design and tasteful decor of the living room pavilion makes it a true showcase and I have to mention the pool which is the largest I have ever seen at a private villa. Thanks to Ozzie and the wonderful staff for making our stay so special!

On behalf of all 13 of us ladies, I want to thank you and all the staff at Silent Waters for executing the perfect vacation. Everything from arrival to departure was perfect and exceeded our expectations (which, given the photos of Silent Waters on the website, is a feat in itself). The staff could not have been lovelier or more professional. The food and drinks were delicious and the dining atmosphere was heavenly. We were able to enjoy each minute with each other from morning coffee to after dinner drinks. We were all grateful that the staff knew what we wanted and when we wanted it. I certainly understand how you are "Winner of the Caribbean World Travel Awards "Best Villa of the Year" for 9 Consecutive Years.
