Jamaica tourism lines up new projects to attract travellers

Moon Palace Jamaica GrandeTourism and Entertainment Minister Dr Wykeham McNeill says the tourism sector of Jamaica is poised for major investments which will provide jobs and economic growth for the country. “We are seeing not only investments in upgrading properties but we are seeing new properties coming on stream with the prospects of an additional 1,600 rooms across the resort areas,” he said. Dr McNeill was addressing Tuesday’s official opening of the Jewel Runaway Bay Lagoon Water Park in St Ann. The water park, located on the grounds of the Sagicorowned Jewel Runaway Bay Beach and Golf Resort, is considered one of the largest of its kind in the entire Caribbean.


The much-anticipated Moon Palace Jamaica Grande has debuted with a soft opening. The all-inclusive property opened its doors last week with an announcement on the hotel’s Facebook page. It is available for booking on the company’s website. The property is the result of a large-scale renovation of the former Sunset Jamaica Grande resort.



GoldenEye Resort in Oracabessa, St. Mary will debut 26 new Beach Huts by the end of the year. The 52-acre resort reopened in 2011 after a two-year refurbishment, and currently offers 19 units including beach and lagoon villas, cottages and the signature Fleming Villa. The 26 new units will be strategically positioned to maximize the breezes from the ocean and surrounding hills. All will have beach or bay views and shuttered windows. Ann Hodges, the architect who was behind GoldenEye’s original villa and cottage concept, will blend the Beach Huts with the property’s existing footprint.
