I have been to Ohana Villa on a few occasions because of my friendship with the owner. I have always found it a breathtaking place whose beauty increases with each visit. However, trying to portray Ohana through pictures or words is virtually impossible as neither can do it true justice. Once at Ohana there is no desire to leave the property to visit any other part of the island as it encompasses all the best aspects of what Tobago has to offer, the scenery, the sea, the serenity, the natural beauty of the wooden structure, so removed from the contemporary glass, concrete and steel which now embodies our everyday lives. Ohana Villa is truly exceptional. There is just no comparison.

I stayed as a guest of the owner a couple of times and
having lived in Acapulco Mexico I would say that Ohana is
up there with a lot of style and great atmosphere it has
the most stunning views and has a wonderful relaxing
ambience it was probably the best holiday ever and I
would say to anybody who wants a superb holiday this
is THE place we were so looked after by the staff who
were kind and so accomodating there was nothing that was
too much trouble and I can still taste the amazing food
that they cooked this combined with the wonderful weather
the great pools the beach just down a few steps I think I
had the most rest every in fact my friend called me "sleepy
sue" because I spent most of the time lazing by the pool
with a book absolute bliss what more can a girl want?

Where shall I start... this is truly the most luxurious place I have been in the Caribbean. I have been to Tobago a million times but this was a very unique experience. This is the real paradise that God described! Ohana is the best on the island.
The compound is very well kept. The two infinity pools spills out into the scenery of the ocean. The Jacuzzi is ideal for a romantic night. Hearing the birds chirp in the morning is music so refreshing, that it puts an instant smile on your face to start the day. The private beach, just some steps down proves to be unmatched and untouched...
The staff, very helpful. One tip, walk with bug spray (OFF) since at nights you will want to sit and absorb the romantic setting under the sky and because of the very open atmosphere you may find a few mosquitoes.
To the owners and Architects, job well planned. Every detail reflects royalty. The kitchen can use a bit more attention. I will strongly recommend this Royal treat... your must have the one (s) you care about the most to share this unbelievable experience... Hema

I have just returned from a 1 week stay at the Villa Ohana after getting married there.
7 of us stayed in the more than ample accomodation and had an absolutely fabulous time from start to finish.
Marie Dilworth was excellent in organising the wedding and the villa proved to be a stunning backdrop for our wedding photo's along with giving everyone staying with us the feeling of living like Royalty for a week.
The Villa is spread out over a massive area and the photo's just don't do it justice. Rena and Joy do a fantastic job of keeping the place in order and helping out with whatever they can.
The master bedroom really is something to behold. The room itself is massive, housing a huge 4 poster and some lovely furniture and ornaments. The en-suite bathroom is really out of this world. The shower area alone is bigger than most bathrooms and there is even a sunken bath. The shutters open fully to the floor giving a breathtaking view of the ocean allowing you to shower almost outside with privacy.
The other bedroom are also well designed with their own little luxurious quirks.
The pool area is very plush with a shallow and deep infinity pool and a jaccuzzi pool.
It took a few hours just to look round the villa fully and admire all the beautiful furniture.
The private beach is very secluded and clean. There were body boards in the Villa and we all spend the late afternoon catching some waves before showering in the outdoor shower on the way back up the stairs to the Villa.
The only tip I could give is don't go booking any trips before you go as you'll probably not want to leave your accomodation!
Very highly recommended and an absolutely perfect location for a small, intimate wedding.
Many thanks to Marie, Rena and Joy for making the wedding go like clockwork and ensuring an absolutely amazing day for everyone.
It is quite expensive but believe me it is worth every penny.
We stayed at Ohana lsat year in Bacolet. It is a beautiful one of a kind house. This villa is more money but worth every penny. The staff was wonderful and could not do enough for you. If you're looking for an oasis this is the place. Rena, Joy and Mac Daddy are the best!
