Jamaica's Tryall Club completes $2M renovation of two luxury villas

The Tryall Club, a property that opened outside Montego Bay in Jamaica in 1959, unveiled the finished renovations of two of its 75 estate villas, including the 10-bedroom estate villa “Create Abundance” that occupies four hillside acres, and newly expanded five-bedroom “Sunset,” a luxury villa located right on the edge of the Caribbean Sea.

Built in a colonial style, Create Abundance was re-imagined with enhancements to existing rooms, including expanded doorways, new parquet flooring, and window realignment and refurbishments. The white-washed interiors also have new locally-sourced furniture, including four-poster beds in guestrooms.

Other design highlights of the $2-million renovation of Create Abundance include: a new poolside bar; a gymnasium outfitted with cardiovascular and resistance training equipment; a new organic kitchen garden with access to a hillside yam farm; a new butler's pantry for the head of the villa's six-member staff; and new landscaping featuring a steep terraced garden of flowering plants bordered with cut stone and a waterfall.

Occupying an elevated location with ocean views, Create Abundance is one of the largest of the 75 villas at The Tryall Club. The villa sleeps 20 guests and can accommodate the same number for seated indoor dining or up to 50 people for a cocktail party. There is also an outdoor heated swimming pool, children's playground and basketball court.

Meanwhile, Sunset has five bedrooms, a private beach and vistas of Montego Bay and Jamaica's coastline. Remodeled, the single-level villa has contemporary Caribbean architecture and a beach-house ambiance. Design highlights of the renovation include: newly constructed ocean-facing two-bedroom cottage linked by a covered walkway to the main house; new solar-heated overflow swimming pool with lap lane, baha ledge and adjacent hot tub; outdoor showers added to four of the five restored bathrooms; expanded living and dining rooms with fresh interiors and new wet bar; and coral stone flooring added throughout.

Sunset sleeps 10 guests and can accommodate 12 people for seated indoor dining or more for a cocktail party.
