Rio Chico is truly one of the most unique and beautiful properties in Jamaica. Located just outside of Ocho Rios, and set within tranquil tropical gardens with exotic flowers and spectacular waterfalls and overlooking the blue Caribbean. The 14-acre estate with 2000 feet of shoreline, private beach, tasteful furnishings and appointments, and impeccable service, represents the finest in villa living. The estate consists of a magnificent Georgian architecture 6-bedroom main house and a 2-bedroom Guest Cottage, both furnished in impeccable style and taste. The villa was originally built in 1898 and just underwent a lavish renovation by one of the world's most brilliant hoteliers.
To enter the gates of Rio Chico is to step into a different world: a world of magical beauty secluded from the cares of the outside world, yet close to many of Jamaica's most popular attractions. The world-famous Dunn's River Falls and Fern Gully offer two of Jamaica's scenic attractions, and one of the island's newest and most popular attractions, swimming with the dolphins at Dolphin Cove are all only minutes away. Even without leaving the confines of Rio Chico, you can enjoy the essence of Jamaica: stroll the gardens and absorb the tropical ambience; pause and listen to the sounds of the sparkling stream that meets the Caribbean with your own private waterfall.

Your experienced villa chefs will provide you with a wide array of meals to suite the most discriminating palates.
