I had the privilege of staying and meeting the new owners of this soon-to-be upscale chic hotel. I've been traveling to JA for the past 20 years and have stayed in various hotels and this is the first time I've ever met the owners of the resort. It's a family run hotel who are in the midst of renovating the resort into a 5-star hotel/spa with an asian theme. They own a successful hotel in St. Martin and plan to duplicate that sucess with this hotel. It's a short drive into town & to the airport.
The exterior of this hotel reminded me of an ancestral plantation. I stayed in one of the newly renovated guest rooms. Each room has a balcony and a phenominal view (see view photo). With furnishings from Thailand, you get the feel of what's to come. While there are still minor additons that need to be made (by that I mean artwork, accessories, etc), the rooms were clean and the staff were exceptionally helpful and accomodating.
The owners elaborated on what they wanted to do with the hotel and when their plans are carried out in detail, this will be one of the most elite hotels on the North coast of Jamaica. The owners are well known in Jamaica & are well traveled, so they know what luxuries people want & expect when they go to on vacation. This will be the place to find it.
