Continuing their expansion into the Caribbean, Iberostar Hotels & Resorts announced the grand opening of Iberostar Rose Hall Beach, the first of three planned Jamaican resorts. Located in Rose Hall Beach, a high-end resort area near Montego Bay and just 20 minutes from the international airport, the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach offers an upscale, European elegance that characterizes the Iberostar brand throughout the world, complemented with a Caribbean flair.
“The continued growth of Iberostar Hotels & Resorts worldwide includes a significant expansion throughout the Caribbean,” stated John Long, vice president of sales and marketing. “Jamaica is a destination rich in culture, history, beautiful beaches, outstanding scenery and eco-adventure - all factors that are perfectly in line with the Iberostar product. We are thrilled to add a Jamaica property to our portfolio.”
Iberostar Rose Hall Beach features an expansive oceanfront layout with exterior and interior design details executed by local Jamaican artisans. The hotel boasts 234 garden and pool view rooms, 100 ocean view rooms and 32 spacious junior suites. Each room has a balcony or terrace, air conditioning and ceiling fan, complimentary mini-bar, color satellite TV, iron with ironing board, coffeemaker, direct-dial telephone and built-in safe. Guests can take advantage of the included room service, available from 11 am to 11 pm.
Other features include a large swimming pool and infinity pool with a swim-up bar and four restaurants, three of which are reservation-only specialty restaurants - a family-style steakhouse, a Japanese restaurant and a Cajun restaurant. There are also four bars, including a theater bar and cigar bar. Guests can take advantage of the many outdoor activities including aerobics, volleyball, table tennis and even dance lessons. Younger guests will love joining in the fun at the kid’s club, as well as with organized games and activities led by the Star Friends animation team. There is also an on-site CDC PADI Gold Palm Resort Dive Center, operated by Dressel Divers International, offering a wide range of local boat diving and snorkeling, as well as dive and snorkel excursions, dive courses and several other water sports activities. In the evening, guests can enjoy live nightly entertainment at the resort, including variety shows and performances by a full orchestra.
The hotel’s location in the Rose Hall Beach resort area, a destination in and of itself, also offers guests proximity to several world-class golf courses, including the White Witch of Rose Hall Golf Course and the Cinnamon Hill Golf Course. Guests will also find abundant shopping and vibrant nightlife.
