I stayed at Villa Hikaru before the renovation and was impressed with the location. Now with the designer renovation this is the property to beat in the area. The staff makes you feel like you are cared for and every meal is delicious. The new outdoor showers are heavenly. The "lightbox cabana" was my favorite for hanging out with friends for hours or my afternoon nap. The pool was great for laps and fun several times a day, if you can resist the ocean only a few steps away. I will return again and again and again....
Villa Hikaru is Treasure Beach at its finest.
Here are the reasons to come to Hikaru: gorgeous view of the beach, a perfect, private pool, Ms. Vanesha, Ms. Elisha and Mr. Patrick (the house staff who are warm, talented, and generous), a complete lack of tourists and a wonderful taste of real Jamaica. We came with 3 of our kids (ages 10, 16 and grown), son-in-law and baby grandson. There was plenty of room for all of us, and we were well taken care of by the staff: Mr. Patrick giving us fresh coconuts from the tree by the beach and Ms. Vanesha and Elisha cooking really amazing food (be sure to get the lobsters!) and keeping everything clean. It's like living on your own private beach resort. On cook's night out, we went out to Egge's and watched the sunset while eating curried conch, while our youngest 2 played hide and seek on the beach with a big bunch of kids. Took a day trip to YS Falls and the Appleton Rum Estate, with one of the drivers from Treasure Tours, and that was lots of fun. We can't wait to go back!
The 8 of us were lucky enough to stay at Villa Hikaru for Christmas week, 2016. We were the first guests after the wonderful renovation. Although we never saw the property pre renovation, it is certainly spectacular now! The beach, grounds, pool, tennis court, and staff are wonderful. The 8 adults were very comfortable and all fell in love with Treasure Beach and Villa Hikaru. The sunsets, outdoor showers, and wonderful food prepared by Venecia and Elisha made for a very special and relaxing week. The grounds and pool are even more beautiful than the pictures indicate. The groundskeeper, Patrick, takes pride in his work and results are impressive. Treasure Beach and Billy's Bay provide an authentic Jamaican experience. It is impossible not
We loved sitting in the outdoor living room following with our eyes the paths of butterflies along the bougainvillea cascading toward that beautiful turquoise sea. We think it is the best view in Treasure Beach! The staff was excellent and we learned a lot from Mister Patrick.
The pool was wonderful as you can really use it to swim and it was great having the fun of playing tennis. Some members of our party used the court every day.

This February was our second year at Villa Hikaru. Two families with young children stayed together, and Villa Hikaru is ideally set up for that, with separate "wings" off the common area and a bathroom on each side.
We were picked up at the airport by a local company Treasure Tours who drove us to Villa Hikaru. Not wanting to go too far from this wonderful place meant we didn't need a car.
Aside from the spectacular weather, the house is in a beautiful location, is very clean and provides spectacular views. The pool is ideal for swimming and the veranda provides excellent shade for hot afternoons. There is no need for air conditioning because the ocean breezes mean it never feels too hot.
The staff are welcoming and wonderful -- Miss Venessia, Miss Elisha and Mr. Patrick are very kind, attentive and most of all the food is wonderful!
This is a great vacation spot I would love to return to again and again. It's entirely worth the drive from the airport to get true relaxation in a very quiet safe place. It's not fancy or very modern, but it leaves you wanting nothing!
