Jamaica jumps ahead with new & refurbished accommodation

JAMAICA'S  tourism sector continues to make huge strides with regard to product development. Last year, approximately 3,000 new and refurbished hotel rooms were added to the island’s accommodation stock and in 2017, the destination expects to add more than 1,100 new rooms. Furthermore, it is expected that between 2018 and 2021, the #destination will have added more than 12,000 new rooms, spanning the various resort areas.


Breathless Resort & Spa consisting of 150 rooms had its official opening in February 2017. The ultra-modern adults-only resort features luxury accommodations, a worldclass spa, mouthwatering gourmet cuisine and a non-stop party with the world’s hottest DJs performing. Located in Freeport Montego Bay, the property boasts a chic design with state of the art technology including free WiFi and in-room tablets. More than half of the suites offer complimentary butler service. 

The 146-room Royal Decameron Cornwall Beach resort in Montego Bay, St. James, was officially opened in February bringing the company’s room count in #Jamaica to 521. The new property adds to the 144 rooms at the Royal Decameron Montego Bay and 231 at the Royal Decameron Runaway Bay in St. Ann. 

Jewel Grande (formerly Palmyra) is expected to open late Summer/Fall 2017. Construction is now underway to complete the unfinished buildings on 16 acres of pristine waterfront land on the Rose Hall estate. The property comprises 88 junior suites, along with one, two and three bedroom units and private villas. 

Spanish Court Montego Bay, which formerly operated as Breezes is set to open this Fall. The 120-room hotel located on the popular “hip strip” in Montego Bay has been undergoing extensive refurbishing and redevelopment expected to cost in the region of US$12.5 million.
