The architect of this magnificent villa seized upon the stupendous location and created a home on one level where every single room looks out and opens out to the view of the sea, celebrating the beauty for which Jamaica is so renowned. The ultimate luxury of space - a space that has been imaginatively designed to free-flow from west to east, following the line of the bay so that wherever you stand or sit on the amazing terrace, that spans the total width of the house, the sea is ever-present. Views are framed by the orange flowers of a Poinciana tree and by the natural curve and inlets of the Hanover coastline. Anticipation Villa is designed to enable everyone to come together and enjoy the fun while also providing enough space to allow everyone to find his or her own private spot to relax. It is a house in which to entertain, or simply come together as a family. Anticipation Villa is a fine example of classical Caribbean architecture. Inside, it is a showcase of contemporary interior design that not only emphasizes the height and space of the rooms but also creates an atmosphere that is calm, harmonious and sophisticated. The talent of Jamaican master craftsmen is evident throughout, in the custom made furniture and irresistibly tactile pieces throughout. Lines are clean, straight and angular, spectacularly punctuated by the sensuous curve of glass sculpture, beaten silver circles and the translucency of water cascading down. The blue of the sea is ever-present, complemented by warm earth tones with a dash of the vibrancy of reds and greens. The home is a work of art surrounded by the beauty of nature.
The endless vista of the ocean is mirrored in the spaciousness within the walls of Anticipation Villa. The grandeur of the common areas melds into the tranquil elegance of each of the six bedrooms. All face the ocean and open to its own private section of the terrace. Four bedrooms have king size beds and two have two double beds which can be configured as kings. The streamlined cutting-edge bathroom spas sport deep walk-in showers and elegant contemporary fittings. All bedrooms include a flat screen television, Sonos system and wireless internet. The layouts of the bedrooms offer connectivity or privacy – perfect for multi-generational families. A romantic visit, a fun weekend, a relaxing getaway, or celebratory event, Anticipation Villa offers all the amenities of which dreams are made.
At Anticipation Villa, guests are surrounded by the temptations of the endless ocean waters and the excitement of island life as they luxuriate within the elegance of a masterfully crafted home. The splendid Great Room is a terrific place to entertain in, or to retire to after dark.

Anticipation is an incredible place to spend a vacation! We enjoyed the finest food, relaxed by the pool and beach. Our staff took care of us like we were family. None of us wanted this week to end.
A group of 12 recently returned from a week long stay at Anticipation Villa. It was the vacation of a lifetime. Anticipation is absolutely gorgeous with beautiful decor and breathtaking views. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. We dined on 5-star meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Chef Fitzroy's culinary creations were AMAZING! We were pampered by the villa's very attentive staff and spent most of our time lounging and relaxing on the huge patio as opposed to venturing off property. We're already planning our next visit and the only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.
We just returned from 10 days at Anticipation and the experience was exceptional! The house was even better than the pictures make it seem, the staff was unbelievably attentive, the views were the best we've ever had and it was just an overall unbelievably great vacation. We traveled with 3 small children and it was still a very relaxing vacation. The chef Sharon was great and we couldn't think of one thing that was missing from the experience. We hope to return again soon!
I have had the incredible experience of staying at Anticipation Villa on numerous occasions. Once you have had a taste of "paradise" it is impossible to vacation anywhere else. The name Anticipation is perfect because every need you could possibly have is "anticipated" and "fulfilled". It is truly a 6 star experience. The property is modern and chic with the ultimate breathtaking views of the Island. It is "picture perfect" and lots of fun. We have traveled with our young children (ages 7 & 10) and they have more fun at Anticipation than they have had at 5 star resorts in the Caribbean catering to children. In fact my daughters have been saving their allowances so when they graduate from college they can "buy" Anticipation. Everything you could possibly want is available to you. Golf, tennis, spa treatments, gymnasium, tea time, kids club, the beach and the list goes on and on...everything is all on site. You have the option of being as "secluded" as you may like or you can be "included" in as many activities that are available. One of the nicest pleasures of staying at Anticipation is THE STAFF!!!! Hands down you will not find a better staff at ANY vacation spot....anywhere!!! I am always SO sad when I am leaving because after being catered to with so much genuine concern and professionalism...you don't want to leave. You immediately try to arrange future dates to return to the Villa. When I return I feel like I'm coming back home because the staff remembers all of your likes and preferences. In a nutshell Anticipation Villa is the "hottest" and most elite vacation destination in the Caribbean. The discerning vacationer should have the Anticipation experience. It is truly an experience of a "lifetime".
Our family enjoyed a blissful week at Anticipation! The accommodations are outstanding! Each room is beautifully decorated and appointed, the views throughout the villa are spectacular, and the staff is extremely professional and welcoming. They went out of their way from the start to make our visit memorable, adding special touches for all throughout the week, including delicious frozen fruit drinks served pool side for the kids, and fabulous meals designed to more than satisfy a wide variety of palates! While we enjoyed all the resort had to offer and ventured off to other parts of the island, we were also perfectly content relaxing the day away at the villa. No matter what the day held, we were sure to begin and end it enjoying the tranquility of the patio, gazing beyond the infinity pool to the golf course and finally to the ever-changing blues of the Caribbean. Absolute heaven!
