Update from Jamaica

Recommended Posts

Dear Travel Partner,


As we approach the upcoming winter season, we at the Jamaica Tourist Board want to share with you some of the exciting new developments taking place in our tourism sector. With this in mind and with this first e-news format, we will start a series of e-letters designed to update you on the latest happenings on our island. Some of the more thrilling news comes from our accommodation sector which has been increasing room inventory at a phenomenal rate, providing a range of conveniences that will facilitate the many lifestyles and budgets of the most discerning traveler, yet maintaining the awesome beauty of our island destination. While much of these developments are in the area of new construction, there are also properties that have undergone extensive refurbishment and redecoration enhancing the attractiveness of these facilities.




Just opened is the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites, with 319 units, joining its sister property, Iberostar Rose Hall Beach. A third and final phase will be Iberostar Grand Hotel Rose Hall which will open its doors for guests by the end of this year, and will showcase 296 rooms. Iberostar Grand will be an adults-only, five-star property. With all three properties on line, this will bring their total room count to 975 units.




This new development has set its opening date for March 2009, and will be the brandâ€s premier resort in the Caribbean. The Palmyra will offer 299 guest rooms plus one-, two-, three- and four- bedroom suites, penthouses and private villas. The property features a 30,000 square-foot ESPA spa, an ocean-view fitness center and access to three of the Caribbeanâ€s finest golf courses at close proximity.




Formerly known as Couples Ocho Rios, Couples Tower Isle has set re-opening date for March 2009. (The property was renamed in deference to a historical reference to its earlier beginnings.) The hotel closed its doors last year spring for extensive renovation and will re-open with the addition of 20 new units bringing total room count to 226.




Now a Hilton resort, this property recently underwent major renovation in its main lobby area and all guest rooms. It has easy access to a championship golf course, Cinnamon Hill, and only 15 minutes by car from the Montego Bay airport.




Another property that has recently seen a major renovation in its guest rooms and landscaping is this SuperClubs property, Breezes Runaway Bay Golf Resort & Spa. New facilities include an authentic Jamaican restaurant which serves up our favorite national dishes such as ackee and saltfish, breadfruit, patties, escoveitch fish, pumpkin soup and, of course, our famous jerk varieties in chicken, pork or fish, on its hearty menu.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
