Golden Rock Estate

In the true spirit of Golden Rock and its magical gardens, there is Amaranth, a lovely Caribbean home, just adjacent to the now famous hotel. Surrounded by tropical foliage, a rain forest ghaut, and historic walls, Amaranth is a virtual Garden of Eden with more than 80 varieties of trees and plants. (An amaranth is a mythical flower that blooms forever). There is a feeling of total privacy, yet Golden Rock Hotel is just a few minutes’ walk away. Nestled amid the foliage is a gracious West Indian home with an alfresco dining/sitting area that provides tropical living at its best. A large living room and kitchen, and a third bedroom, are in the main section. Two additional large bedrooms open onto the outdoor veranda with views of the sea from this rain forest perch. Private nature walks at both sides of the house.
