Originally opened in 1995 as the ultimate luxury hideaway, LaCure Villas’ Roaring Pavilion THEE Divine Villa was the first villa to offer an on-site spa with a full-time spa attendant! With a reputation as Caribbean’s most celebrated estate home, this fully-staffed spa estate situated directly on iconic James Bond Beach located between Ocho Rios and St. Ann’s Bay on Jamaica’s North Coast. Yes, we’re talking about the patch of sand which played an important supporting role in that iconic scene in the first James Bond film, Dr. No, wherein Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress) rises out of the surf sporting only a white bikini, a dagger and a bag of sea shells, singing “Underneath the Mango Tree.”
“Roaring Pavilion has set the bar for a villa experience like no other,” said Williams, president of THEE divine villa. “For more than 15 years, it has been a sought-after retreat for the world’s top celebrities, business leaders and heads of states, who have urged us to re-create the experience in other locations around the world. THEE divine villa is designed to fulfill that dream, drawing inspiration from Roaring Pavilion as its physical and spiritual model and raising the bar even higher.”
Two years ago, this luxury hideaway were completely transformed with the aim to offer experience that touches the body, mind and soul in new and magical ways. And indeed, that was successfull.
Tucked within expansive, generously landscaped grounds and discreetly staffed, Roaring Pavilion meets all architectural and service standards. At the same time, local culture has inspired the design details to ensure a guest experience as authentic as it is exclusive. Panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea and lush hills of St. Ann. will not leave anyone indifferent. This exclusive retreat can accommodate up to ten guests in four king bedrooms and one additional bedroom with a twin bunk, offering more than 8,000 square feet of living space.
Fine furnishings with the signature of designers Donghia, Philippe Starck, Christian Liagre and British Khaki nice complements the spaces with French terracotta and exotic hardwood floors. The marble and stone baths in the spacious en-suite bathrooms are also generously stocked with Ligne St. Barth products. One more brand signature is THEE divine sound – a private home theater developed through a partnership with Bowers and Wilkins.
If we have to set aside something as very special, this could be a Great Gatsby-style pool, which is temperature controlled and purified with dermatologically tested, skin-friendly salts! Surrounded by a new landscape of beautiful tropical blooms and trees that range from heliconia and frangipani to giant elephant bamboo, the place by the pool could be one of the half-dozen different beautiful spots ideal for a meal. Chef Johanna Mitchell, whose culinary delights include intricate continental dishes and dazzling local specialties with the freshest market ingredients will satisfy even the most delicate tastes.
