Riviera Wellness Retreat in Mammee Bay Estate, on Jamaica's north coast, is close to many tourist attractions (see Location on this page). WELLNESS RETREAT Here are key dimensions of your wellness that Riviera Wellness Retreat aims to help you to promote: 1. A wide array of wellness-enhancing teas and other plant-based products that are helpful in the pursuit of wellness. A large proportion of the world's so-called 'medicinal teas' are based on plants grown in Jamaica year-round. Youù can sample many of these teas, as well as examine the related plants growing on the property. 2. If you like to jog and take long walks you will love the quiet roadways that cut through Mammee Bay. If you prefer having very private but nevertheless vigorous walks, then let the matted grass of Riviera’s lawn pamper your feet as you cover 250+ metres going around the property just once. Do that six times in a row and you will work up a good sweat walking up the gently sloping landscape. 3. Get ready for a good night’s sleep with a quick workout in our yoga room, equipped with educational health-related videos. And for more extensive exercise and spa facilities, just walk down to Bamboo Blu on the beach. 4. Have meals prepared according to your instructions by our acclaimed chef. 5. Enjoy a collection of health-promotional literature, podcasts and videos. 6. A wide variety of fruits and flowers will excite your interest as you take your daily health-promoting walks over Riviera Villa's landscaped grounds. What you will see depends upon the season when you are there. 8. Just 10 minutes' drive from the 'Wellness Retreat' is 'healing' spring water -- a shallow pond where sulphuric water bubbles up from underground. Flames will burst forth if you put a match at the surface of the water. 9. Walk over to the cottage on the property and view Marcia's birds and the turtle. Most afternoons you can sit in the backyard and enjoy a visit from dozens of birds that swoop down upon the driveway to pick up the bird seed that Marcia spreads for them. And from the verandah on the front mornings and afternoons a parade of colorful birds helps you develop a sense of inner peace. 10. Enjoy our private swimming pool-- and it’s just a few steps from the verandah, where you can sit and watch the kids have fun in the water. (Its gate and fence allow you to be in charge of when the kids can use the pool.) And the water temperature is like that of a warm bath late in the afternoon on a sunny day in Spring and Summer. Relax under a pool-deck umbrella while you enjoy reading or just meditating. And private it is! The pool itself is about 100 metres from the front gate, where the beach road goes by. HUMAN RELATIONS The staff focuses on your having a rewarding travel experience by providing the best possible person-to-person relations so that you will feel truly 'at home' at Riviera Villa; because we know that when you go home, you will want to feel that you have had a rewarding travel experience. A past guest, Mrs. Hildebrand from Manitoba, has said: “For our expectations as a family, Riviera is ideal. The Riviera offers security for our children. The grounds are well protected. We experience a safe feeling. For us the location is ideal. The pool and the beach are near to each other. The Riviera staff makes us feel like family. Going back for the fourth time is like going home.” INDOOR FUN Riviera_Villa has a big living room, and the furniture in the living room is just right for all kinds of table-top and floor games. And your group can spread out onto the so-relaxing verandah. For your indoor fun, you have access to cable TV, selected major events or movies recorded on video cassettes and DVDs, and board games. Internet service is available via LIME (the land-line telephone service), with a Digicel wireless modem for backup. In short, when you are not having fun in the sun or at some night spot in town, let Riviera be your center for endless hours of engaging entertainment, beneficial education and relaxing indoor exercise. BEDROOMS Enjoy that special privacy you need at Riviera Villa. There are three bedrooms, each one with its own en-suite bath, thick walls, and an air-conditioner to bring you sleeping comfort. Revel in the sensuousness of tropical breezes that caress you and titillate you with soft floral aromas from a variety of flowers and fruit trees in season. Every room has a window that looks out over a part of the landscaped grounds and towards the beach road. A queen-sized bed enhances the ambience of the master bedroom, located in the north-east corner. From each of the two north-side bedrooms, you will get a clear view of large parts of the garden, the pool deck and one side of the pool hedge. The south-side bedroom has two facing windows. The one on its north wall gives you a partial view of the garden. More
