Jamaica named among top villa vacation destinations for 2018

Jamaica has been listed among the top five most sought after countries for villa vacation destinations for 2018.

The list was complied by Villas of Distinction, the world's premier luxury villa rental company. The countries were selected based on industry insights.  

Jamaica was fourth on the list, a spot down from the number three spot it held a year ago.

Steve Lassman, vice president of villa product & agency relations for Villas of Distinction, said "A villa vacation to Jamaica continues to provide the best value of any Caribbean villa experience. Staff including a chef, butler, housekeeper and laundress are included in the cost of most Jamaica villas, making each villa a personalized vacation with a staff to cater to one's every need.

"In addition, the island has so much to offer in the way of activities from snorkeling, scuba diving, golfing, hiking, zip lining, and horseback riding to climbing the world-famous 600-foot-high Dunn's River Falls or enjoying Jamaica's 27 native species at the Rocklands Feeding Station," he said.

Meanwhile, another Caribbean destination, Turks and Caicos Islands was third on the list.

The top five, in order, are:

1. Italy

2. Orlando

3. Turks and Caicos 

4. Jamaica 

5. Hawaii
