Solis the Palmyra

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Has anyone heard anything about this new resort that is supposed to be opening in the winter? Its called Solis, the Palmyra in Montego Bay..I think its partnered with the Ritz. Has anyone ever stayed at any other Solis properties? Am thinking about having an early Spring wedding there...had originally been infatuated with Moon Dance in Negril but they're a little small and not budging on their prices sad.gif

 

Thanks

 

Amee

It looks amazing! I just checked out their website.

 

We drove past Rose Hall on the way to Negril and it was beautiful.

 

Since they aren't open yet, it looks like you might have to be the guinea pig! DH and I might look into that for another vacation.

Last time I went, it wasn't done yet, but I remember reading a pamphlet advertising units for sale as luxury condominiums... It looks great! Right near Half Moon.

 

Here's the website for more info.

Well, its official we booked at Solis the Palmyra for next April! So far the WC has been great, very helpful and flexible. We'll see what happens as we start moving on some of the details. I think we ultimately chose this place b/c they have the capacity to be flexible, they are a relatively large resort and not yet open, so they have some motivation to help us out. We're likely having 100+ Indian wedding, so we definitely need that flexibility. Some of the other places we looked at just weren't that interested, they would reply to emails but no major efforts. The people at Solis, on the other hand, are quite excited about having an Indian wedding, so thats a plus.

 

If anyone is planning a visit to Montego Bay in the next few months and has a chance to swing by the property (next to half moon I think) I would love to hear about it. Also if anyone knows any local Indian vendors in Jamaica (decor, henna etc) please forward them to me. Thanks and good luck to everyone!

Hi MLK,

 

They changed their opening date from Winter to March '09 (which is a little anxiety provoking) but say they'll be ready for April. Fingers crossed. They apparently had to move some of the Jan/Feb scheduled weddings to other locations..

 

So far communication with them has been pretty good, although i can't always be sure how accurate the info is from this far away. I guess we'll just have to wait and see!

Hi Amee - Congrats on securing a location. Question - I too am thinking about Solis. Did you find their pricing comparable to other places...or more high-end? I know it's along the lines of the Ritz (I think)...I've only recently started looking into this so ANY information you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Again, congrats and happy planning!!!!

I just got back from Jamaica and was so mad that I did not find out about Solis the Palmyra until the flight home. There was an ad for it in the SkyMall and it says that if you contact front desk at Solis the Palmyra they will arranage a free shuttle to pick you up so you can come and take a tour!!!! I am sooo upset we did not know about this BEFORE we went!!! Just wanted to let you ladies know who may be heading out that way to look at places.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
