Built in a striking colonial style with white-rendered walls, the villa is on two levels offering large rooms and a backdrop of tropical hillside forest. To the front, the commanding ocean view is truly spectacular and because of the elevation, at certain times of the day the curvature of the earth can be seen. The large circular courtyard entrance to the villa is backed by a spectacular hillside garden with a lovely water feature that cascades down. The bedrooms are large offering air conditioning as well as ceiling fans. Most are designed to maximize the spectacular views with huge windows and private balconies. En suite marble bathrooms with travertine floors accompany each bedroom with the master bathroom being clad in a beautiful white marble. All of the bedrooms are furnished with beautiful Jamaican mahogany four-poster beds. There are eight bedrooms in the core of the villa; two upstairs including the master and six downstairs. A further two bedrooms - both with king beds - are in the west wing; one upstairs and one downstairs. Throughout, the white walls are accented with beautiful fabrics from Nina Campbell, Schumacher and Brunschwig and Fils.
The main balcony of the villa easily accommodates 50 people for a cocktail party and is the natural lounging, entertaining and dining spot. A combination of modern rattan furniture and white upholstered sofas and armchairs invites relaxation and the mahogany dining table can seat 20 guests. The formal, air-conditioned dining room can seat 20 guests at the bench made mahogany table with elegant pineapple-back dining chairs. There are spectacular views out to sea as well as across the swimming pool and to the hills beyond.
The large and exceptionally high-ceiling sitting room has three wide and tall openings onto the veranda bringing the stunning view of the ocean inside. These openings can be closed allowing the room to be air-conditioned if so wished. Comfort prevails with conversational groupings of large sofas and armchairs. There is also a grand piano which adds panache to cocktail hour. On the lower floor of the villa is a business office which is well-equipped with a computer, fax machine and printer.
Outside is a superb infinity pool with poolside bar overlooking the sea with deep rattan pool chairs and plenty of umbrellas. A dedicated children's playground with swings, a slide as well as a basketball court is always a hit with youngsters as is the pool table located on an upper veranda. Opposite the playground is a very well equipped private gym.

The villa is truly stunning and the photos barely do it justice. The grounds are lush and the views panoramic. The interiors are outfitted with every amenity and so gorgeously decorated. We had several children with us and the villa was very child friendly. Tryall is a wonderful, family oriented resort. It was great to have the best of both worlds-our own private villa and all of the amenities of a resort.
