Grand six-bedroom private villa distinguished by its classic architecture and appreciated by discerning vacationers. Designed by architect Robert Hartley in the early 1960's as a unique melding of West Indies architecture and Italian Venetian style. 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 from this special property. Breakfast at the river is a marvelous way to start the day. Cocktails on the terrace over the bay and dinner in the gazebo feature one of the most beautiful nighttime light shows in the world with a nine-mile view across Montego Bay.
Multi-million dollar renovations of interiors and grounds have resulted in an impressive facelift of this elegant grande dame. Wireless Internet, Apple television, new marble bathrooms and a state-of-the-art kitchen complement lovely new interiors.
Notable also are Bambu's sprawling grounds and gardens with natural stone pathways that wind through gardens to unexpected terraces for private quiet times.
With handicap access in mind, a separate entrance designed specially for guests in wheel chairs features a ramp to a level entrance to the villa, avoiding all stairs. The Bambu pool features a broad 4" deep wheel chair platform as well. This shallow water platform is also a thoughtful, safe pool area for toddlers.
Be advised that Bambu is home to three affectionate Mastiff pups. 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.
