Located in Discovery Bay and built in 2000, Amanoka Villa (Aman-oka or 'peaceful home' in Indonesian) is living proof that imagination when it is executed to perfection can produce magical results. All materials are of the finest quality and many of the authentic design elements were imported from Bali, especially much of the wood and woven cane used for some of the ceilings. Amanoka has been a favorite of celebrities and discerning vacationers, and promises a luxurious and relaxing Jamaican villa vacation. This is truly a world-class villa of remarkable beauty. The inner garden gate of Amanoka transports one into an unexpected world. The intimate, yet formal garden with fish pond leads the way to the main house. Crossing the garden bridge one enters a large entry hall, decorated with live orchids, that opens to a Balinese pavilion and infinity pool overlooking the blue waters of Discovery Bay.
The main house interior has a formal living room, dining room, family room with large screen TV, three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, powder room, swimming pool with spa and kitchen. The villa has a satellite TV system, surround sound Bose music system that filters soothing sounds throughout the house and grounds, a DVD player with a selection of movies, and a computer with internet access, Amanoka offers every modern amenity.

The upstairs bedrooms have balconies while the downstairs bedroom opens on to a covered porch. All annex bedrooms have spectacular views of the bay and mountains.
