Bambu Villa 4 to 7 Bedroom , Montego Bay - Jamaica

Summer Special Stay 7 Nights Pay for 6


About Bambu Villa - Montego Bay Jamaica


Bambu Villa - Nine miles west of Montego Bay is a large private site overlooking perhaps the most glorious view of sea and sky on Jamaica's renowned north coast. Elegantly perched on eight and a half acres atop this hill is Bambu, a grand seven-bedroom private villa distinguished by its classic architecture and appreciated by discerning travelers. 

Nine miles west of Montego Bay is a large private site overlooking perhaps the most glorious view of sea and sky on Jamaica’s renowned north coast. Elegantly perched on eight and a half acres atop this hill is Bambu, a lovely 7-bedroom private villa distinguished by its classic architecture.

Bambu was designed by architect Robert Hartley in the early 1960s as a unique melding of West Indies architecture and Italian Venetian style. Its Palladian arches, dramatic central pool, Italian sculptures, and breathtaking view make it one of the most photographed homes in this collection. In 1974, images of Bambu appeared in Slim Aaron’s A Wonderful Time: An Intimate Portrait of the Good Life

Multiple dining areas take advantage of the spaciousness and vast views of this special property.  Breakfast at the river is a marvelous way to start the day. Lunches on the covered garden terrace overlooking Montego Bay, and dinner in the gazebo feature one of the most beautiful nighttime light shows in the world.

Renovations of interiors and grounds have resulted in an impressive face-lift of this elegant grande dame. Wireless Internet, Apple television, and marble bathrooms complement lovely new interiors.  Today its modern comforts and infrastructure mesh with Bambu’s original Euro charm and glamour.  As designer Charles Faudree wrote when it was featured on the cover of Veranda magazine, Bambu is the “….blending Old World elegance with New World comforts.”  Its newest folly is an open-air garden shower and bathtub outside a small hideaway bedroom downhill from the main house ... with a nine-mile view across Montego Bay.

Notable also are Bambu's sprawling grounds and gardens. Headed by talented Sam, the gardeners have created a lush and lavish tropical paradise, with natural stone pathways that wind through gardens to unexpected terraces for private quiet times.

With handicap access in mind, a separate entrance designed especially for guests in wheelchairs features a ramp to a level entrance to the villa, avoiding all stairs.  The Bambu pool features a broad 4" deep wheelchair platform as well.  This shallow water platform is also a thoughtful, safe pool area for toddlers.

If you've left your pets at home while you're on vacation, be advised that Bambu is home to a couple of affectionate dogs and a fabulous parrot!  At your preference, they may be allowed to roam the grounds and come in to play with the guests or be kept in their large, open-air kennel.

Dear Vicki, our stay at Bambu was very nice! We loved the villa. Thank you for your help!

Hi Vicki -
We all had an absolutely wonderful time in Jamaica. The best vacation we have ever had. The staff at Bambu were just lovely and made our stay so comfortable and fun! Thank you again for all your support in getting there! Melissa June 2021

Hi Vicki
Our stay at Bambu was excellent! Had such a great time. The villa was just as depicted, even better. Otis there is equally awesome. We made a few trips to Negril which was fantastic! Appreciate all the arrangements you did! Thank you, David


The villa was awesome and literally one of the most relaxing vacations ever. Everyone that came was blown away... Peaches and Wayne were awesome. The food was fantastic and I don’t have a bad word I could say. I would definitely consider Bambu again. I am not used to going this scale of rental. However, after doing this, there is no going back on vacation without a set up like this. Thank you so much!

Everything at Bambu was fabulous! The hospitality and attention to detail was perfect! We will all miss our new Jamaican family and look forward to visiting everyone again very soon! Thank you for taking such good care of all of us!

This is the best vacation we have ever taken!
Beautiful villa, plus a remarkable staff!! From the rooms, to the location and the animals. It is well maintained, beautifully appointed...the villa is beautiful, but the staff go beyond anything we have ever seen. My parents are in their early 80’s and said they have never had a more wonderful vacation. Thanks again!

The staff are so sweet and awesome at their job. We are definitely coming back for another vacation here with them at Bambu. The villa is amazing.
The location and views are awesome. My vow renewal was beautiful thanks to this beautiful place. Rooms and pool were gorgeous as well.
We will be coming back with more family and friends & we had a blast. Thank you!
