Our stay was incredible it was better than I ever imagined it could have been! Staff were incredible! Food was simply out of this world and the memories created simply priceless! Thank you so much for an unbelievable experience for me and my whole family. We will truly never forget this one. 19 of stayed at Golden Clouds, a truly spectacular villa that felt as though we were living in a dreamworld for the week! The moment we arrived the staff were very welcoming! Chef is an unbelievable talent and I will definitely miss her cooking.

We just returned from an amazing week at Golden Clouds. We were a group of 21 people, a multigeneration family (ages 2 to 74 years). We wanted to stay in a private villa so we could have a family reunion to remember and it was a trip we will never forget. Everything about Golden Clouds is outstanding and we had the most wonderful time. The staff are incredible. Great food, great service, and it was a joy to interact with them. David, Kenneth, Chris and Ziggy all made us feel like it was our home away from home. Chevanese is a fantastic chef and every meal was a delight. The property is absolutely stunning. The attention to detail is truly something to admire. The grounds are immaculate and it really is like staying at your own private resort with so many amenities. Plus there are lots of quiet spots to just chill out and enjoy the amazing views. It really was a perfect trip and we are all looking forward to coming back!

We had the great pleasure of staying at Golden Clouds for a week and it was truly a wonderful experience. The property is lush, and the private beach is great for swimming. We made good use of the beach volleyball court and played a lot of tennis at night. There is also a beautiful infinity pool with the most amazing view. There is a second pool as well located by the gardens. We were a group of 22, mostly adults, and everyone enjoyed themselves tremendously. We were very well taken care of by the staff and the meals were delicious. Most of the rooms are ocean-front with balconies so the views from the rooms are stunning. Plus, there are lots of terraces and other places for hanging out and enjoying this magnificent property. If you go, prepare to be spoiled!

Wow what a place! Golden Clouds is without doubt a little piece of paradise. The villa was beautifully designed with verandas overlooking the beach/sea and gorgeous ocean-front bedrooms. The staff are exceptional – such attention to detail and an authentic, caring attitude. It is obvious they love their job and really enjoy taking such good care of the guests. The photos online just don’t do it justice. It’s a must visit place. We can’t wait to get back. Thank you to all of Chris’s team.

We chose Golden Clouds for our group holiday of family and friends. There were 24 of us and everyone agreed that it was the trip of a lifetime. Many people in our group were seasoned world travellers and we all felt that it was by far the most beautiful and well-maintained vacation destination we have ever been to in the Caribbean. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure every day is special. We spent most of our time on the beach or by the infinity pool and Chris and his team provided amazing service. David and Ken and Domenic were always there with a cold drink and a warm smile. The food was consistently excellent, and the chef, Chevanese, did an amazing job keeping us well-fed and happy. The property itself is gorgeous with almost every amenity you can imagine. We can’t wait to return!

This was our 2nd time visiting Golden Clouds. We absolutely enjoyed our stay. The staff catered to our every need. The food, drinks, decorations for the ceremony and housekeeping was done in excellence. Everything was simply amazing.

We just got back from our 6th time vacationing at the fantastic Golden Clouds! After having to reschedule 3 times due to the pandemic, it was worth the wait! So many wonderful improvements made to the property that my group took full advantage of! New pool, beach access, and volleyball court were awesome! Added gym and gameroom off the pool were used every day. The staff went up and above making sure we were taken care of. The new chef Chevanese is a treasure! We ate like kings and queens. David and Ken made sure we never went thirsty or hungry during our stay. The new house manager Chris took care of everything we needed, down the the smallest detail. This was the first trip for my grown daughters, who have been hearing about Golden Clouds their entire lives. Being able to bring them with their husbands here was a lifelong dream of ours! Already planning our next trip and looking forward once again to everything Golden Clouds has to offer! Thank you all!!!

This was a special occasion for my wife and I. We have upcoming birthdays and I recently retired. We wanted to celebrate with close friends and family. My wife Cammi is the travel planner. She has had her eye on Golden Clouds for a while. This was the location that fit her desire for a perfect venue. Upon arrival we immediately noticed the grounds. First impressions are important. We knew that this place was taken care of well, which I will mention later. Planning is Cammi’s forte. There were special requests she made prior to our arrival. They were all granted without hesitation. The biggest request was a fire pit. Apparently this has never been done before at Golden Clouds. What they did was simply amazing. Fabian was given the task. We all watched the process. The detail and planning was perfection. The volleyball area was converted into a fire pit centerpiece that was thoroughly enjoyed by our party. By the next morning it looked as though it never happened. Ziggy was up every morning to make sure the beach was spotless and the shallow water was free of rockfish. This brings up the subject of the behind the scenes work that’s done. Ken was always busy keeping the grounds meticulous and handled breakfast/lunch duties. He went out of his way and made a herbal tea that was fantastic. His knowledge of herbs used for medicinal purposes was vast and impressive. Lacyann and Clover were rarely seen but the rooms were day one clean EVERY day!! Jackson was another rarely seen gem but his work keeping the pools and grounds clean were noticed!! Chris did a fantastic job managing his team and his guests. His attention to detail and positive attitude were appreciated. Chris went out of his way and found fresh lobster when it was hard to find. This made for a superb surf and turf for our special dinner. David was the dinner server, bartender and a shining example of a positive people person. He kept a smile on his face and the way he communicated with us kept a smile on ours. When I asked him if he’s ever travelled he made the perfect response, “I have not, but I meet people from all around the world.” Chevonese replaced a beloved long standing chef, whom we heard of but regrettably will never meet. Her passing was devastating to Golden Clouds staff. The food Chevonese prepared was 5 star!! Not only was each meal spectacular, her personality superseded her cooking. I was walking by the kitchen area when I heard a heavenly voice singing. It was Chevonese, all alone. She sang like no one was listening...but I was. I told my wife about this hidden talent. Cammi’s art of persuasion convinced her to sing for our group on our special celebration. Together with saxophonist Howard Foulds a beautiful duet was performed. This was the first time she sang in front of people. All I can say is breathtaking. KEEP SINGING CHEVONESE!!! Nightly, our group partied like it was 1999. David was always in the middle of it. He added some games... BROOM BROOM BROOM!! On a rare occasion Chris, Chevonese and Ziggy joined in the fun. They taught us some games and we taught them some as well. Simply put, this was the perfect vacation. All staff mentioned and probably more that we didn’t meet, added to our experience. Cammi and I travel a lot and rarely go back to the same location. Golden Clouds is on the short list of repeat locations for us. There is very little that can be improved upon. A dedicated spa location would be a bonus. I already heard this was planned so I’m not suggesting anything new. Keep the fire pit as an option. It was a resounding success. You left your mark in our memories. I hope we did for yours. One Love!!
