Proven Properties take over St Ann

Beautiful spaces have the ability to create a kind of tranquillity that’s not only long-lasting but also life-changing. Knowing all too well how impactful these luxurious havens are, Proven Properties, one of Jamaica’s leading real estate development and investment agencies, has sought to add to luxe living in the tourist mecca of St Ann.

Whether your aim is to delve into metropolitan living in the heart of Ocho Rios at SOL Harbour or to be nestled peacefully on a sprawling property equipped with your own optional private pool at Bahari in Runaway Bay, Proven Properties has just the spot.

With work on the property expected to wrap up by December 2025, SOL Harbour is bound to become a home-away-from-home in St Ann.

Boasting two seven-storey blocks with 140 studio apartments and 12 two-bedroom apartments, the development will provide comfort, style and security.

Flaunting the architectural genius of Lighthouse Projects Ltd and top-notch engineering from HTG Engineering and SGS Engineers, SOL Harbour aims to live up to its mantra of providing rest and relaxation with hopes of becoming ‘your place to escape’.

“At SOL Harbor, we pride ourselves on offering our customers the best getaway experience that will have you relaxing in comfort and style while keeping your safety paramount. We are more than just a beautiful space, we are - as our mantra states - "your place to escape." So, when you decide to join our family, you're not only gaining a one-of-a-kind luxury haven, you are also gaining the retreat of a lifetime,” said Aisha Campbell, chief executive officer at Proven Properties.

SOL Harbour is only five minutes to Island Village or six minutes to the world-renowned, Dunns River Falls. It’s also located in close proximity to Margarita Ville, Lobster Dave Seafood Restaurant, Dolphin Cove and the Ocho Rios Jerk Centre so one can more than indulge in Jamaica’s irresistible island cuisine.

“SOL Harbor is strategically located in the heart of Ocho Rios to provide clients with access to every amenity the tourist hotspot has to offer. With the popular Dunns River Falls only a stone's throw away, SOL guarantees a good time. And if you are a foodie, then we have you covered, too, as our property is also centrally located to some of the best restaurants in the city. Take your tastebuds on the same kind of escape your body and mind will experience when you join the SOL family,” Campbell said.

If SOL Harbour promises to be ‘your place to escape’, then Bahari at Runaway Bay will be your spot to live, relax and play in a community that prides itself on offering the kind of serenity one needs to completely unwind. Designed to be the ‘community that lives’, Bahari Runaway Bay provides more than just a place to lay your head. With well-developed amenities, strategically placed playgrounds and parks and comes equipped with the novel inclusion of a medic station at its Clubhouse. Needless to say, Bahari is a certified family property — a place where ‘it all comes together’.

"Boasting 50 four-bedroom villas, 35 three-bedroom villas, 49 three-bedroom townhomes, 24 two-bedroom townhomes, 12 two-bedroom condos and 36 on-bedroom condos, Bahari at Runaway Bay will provide the kind of secure community living you have been craving. This is indeed the place where "it all comes together." Comfort, style, security and convenience are our biggest priorities here at Bahari and we will offer nothing less than the best when you choose us,” Campbell added.

With the first phase of work to be completed by August 2024, Bahari at Runaway Bay which is being developed in partnership with Skillex Development Limited is poised to become a haven for those looking to indulge in luxury living in the heart of St Ann.

“Believe us when we say we thought of everything you will need when you invest with us. We pride ourselves on community and so Bahari is family oriented. Cop one of our units today and come experience luxury in every sense of the word," Campbell said.
